Chevrolet Extends The 2023 Model Year For Corvette

Sports Cars / 2 Comments

The 2024 model year won't start until September 5.

If you're one of those people waiting it out for the next model year of the Chevrolet Corvette, Corvette Blogger is reporting that the information deck sent to dealers sets the end of the 2023 model year as September 1, 2023. There will then be a couple of days to transition to 2024 model year Chevrolet Corvette production, which will start on Tuesday, September 5 - the day after Labor Day here in the US.

Unfortunately, the end of a model year used to be a time when you might be able to snag a deal, but that's unlikely to be the case in 2023. And that's definitely the case with the Z06 as customer-sold orders (SRE) for the Z06 were halted on April 5, and dealership markups have reached insanity.

Why Chevrolet is extending the 2023 model year is still unknown, but it likely depends on supply chain issues as there will be some updates as the C8 generation enters its third production year. There are rumors of an actual refresh, mainly of the interior, but there haven't been any credible sources yet.

However, if the rumor of a new infotainment display screen digital dash display are true, that could explain the delay. Chevy is also busy with the Corvette for the Z06 and the electric E-Ray model, so it could be a confluence of all of this.

It may also be that the Corvette is selling so well, including to people wanting to put the interior into a Camaro, that there's no rush to move into a new model year to tempt people into pulling the trigger on a new one.

According to the initial report, the vehicle order guide will be available to dealers on July 10th, and the visualizer/configurator will go live on July 18th. In the meantime, we'll wait patiently for Chevy to announce any changes or some spy shots if there's a facelift coming.
