The online configurator for the new model year is now live.
Production of the 2022 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray started earlier this month at the Bowling Green plant in Kentucky. But if you're planning to place an order you may want to act fast because demand is going to be high and some dealers have reportedly received very low allocations. Prepare for a first-come, first-served scenario once again.
To help you decide which variant is right for you, Chevrolet has launched the updated online configurator for the 2022 Corvette Stingray, allowing you to browse all the available options and accessories. As before, the 2022 Vette is available in three different trim levels: 1LT, 2LT, and 3LT.
For 2022, Chevrolet has added three new exterior color options: Hypersonic Gray Metallic, Amplify Orange Tintcoat, and Caffeine Metallic. Hypersonic Gray Metallic and Caffeine Metallic are available at no extra cost but the premium Amplify Orange Tintcoat finish costs an extra $995. Despite the added expense, we expect it will be a popular color option as Sebring Orange was the most popular color for the 2020 Corvette. Various stripes and decals are also available in different colors ranging from $500-$995.
Like with most model updates, the 2022 Corvette Stingray has had a price increase. The base 1LT coupe starts at $62,195, up from $59,900, while the 2LT will set you back $69,495 and the 3LT costs $74,145.
The more expensive Convertible, on the other hand, starts at $69,695 for the 1LT, $76,459 for the 2LT, and $81,145 for the range-topping 3LT trim. All prices exclude destination fees.
Some of the optional extras are more expensive for the 2022 Corvette Stingray, too. Originally priced at $4,995, the Z51 Performance package has crept up to $6,345. The E60 Front Lift option now costs $2,260, Black Trident wheels have increased to $2,995, and the High Wing is more expensive than last year, now priced at $1,250. Fully loaded, the most expensive Corvette Stingray Convertible 3LT totals $113,305 including the $1,295 destination charge.
