The eight-generation Corvette is entering its third year of production as one of the fastest selling, most popular cars on the market. The mid-engined C8 will likely only become more sought after as improvements continue to be made and new trims become available. While the 2022 Chevrolet Corvette is getting an understandable price hike, by no means will the car cease to be the pinnacle of affordable sports cars. Thanks to information collected by Corvette Action Center, the world gets the full breakdown of the new 2022 C8 pricing.

All of the trim levels, both the coupe and convertible versions of the 1LT, 2LT, and 3LT are getting a price jump of $1,000 compared to the previous model year. The destination fees for 2022 Corvettes are also increasing from $1,095 to $1,295, a +$200 change. The comparative prices between the model years are shown below, destination fees included.

Even the E60 front-end lift system is $860 more than it was on the 2021 model and costs $2,260. We’ve finally got pricing on the low-profile rear spoiler that we covered earlier this year; the low rear spoiler and front splitter package will cost $595, a cheaper option if you’re not a fan of the more expensive high wing spoiler priced at $1,250. The 2022 IMSA GTLM Championship C8.R Edition that debuted earlier this year is also logged in the pricing breakdown. The special edition trim will cost $6,595 and can only be paired with the 3LT trim level.
You’re Still Getting Plenty Of Bang For Buck
