In response to the unrelenting demand, Chevrolet is working around the clock with production at full capacity to fulfill orders for the 2021 Corvette Stingray before the 2022 model arrives. Due to enter production in September, the 2022 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is available in three new exterior colors including Hypersonic Gray, Caffeine, and Amplified Orange Tintcoat.
Non Z51 models can also be equipped with a low-profile rear spoiler and a new splitter and the V8 has been upgraded with a new direct-injection fuel system and improved engine calibration. These are welcome changes, but GM Authority reports that a Chevrolet is increasing the price of a popular option for the 2022 model, which is a less welcome change.
Available as an optional extra for 2LT and 3LT tris, the Front Lift with Memory package for the 2022 Corvette will cost $2,260. That's an increase of $265 compared to the system for the 2021 Corvette, which retails for back $1,995. To help the mid-engine sports car navigate over driveways and speed bumps, Chevrolet's lift kit raises the front of the C8 Corvette by around 1.6 inches.
This takes less than three seconds at speeds up to 24 mph. For added convenience, the function can store up to 1,000 GPS locations to automatically raise the front whenever you visit the location.
This the second time this option has had a price increase. For the 2020 Corvette, the Front Lift with Memory system was previously available for the 2020 Corvette for $1,495, so the price has increased by $765 in just two years. For the 2022 model year, Chevrolet's Z51 Performance Package is also increasing to $6,345, an increase of $350 compared to the 2021 model year.
To justify the mechanical upgrades, the MSRP for the 2022 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has also increased from $60,995 for 2021 up to $62,195 with destination charges for the 2022 model.
