What’s new

  • New 755-horsepower Corvette ZL1
  • Part of the seventh Corvette generation introduced for 2014

Pros

  • Unbeatable performance for the price
  • The coupe's generous cargo space
  • Comfortable ride quality for a sports car

Cons

  • Missing some of the latest driver safety aids
  • Interior quality isn't quite at the level of its overseas competitors


Which Corvette does Edmunds recommend?

We think the Grand Sport 2LT is the sweet spot for the Corvette. Its 460 horsepower is enough for plenty of fun, and the adaptive suspension and other performance upgrades only make the car better in every situation. The front-view camera, head-up display, ventilated seats, and auto-dimming side mirror from the 2LT package also all offer solid improvement in day-to-day life with a Corvette.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

The current C7 generation Corvette has only started showing its age in minor ways. For example, it doesn't offer the driver aids or active safety features that have become ubiquitous in the last few years. But for 2019, the Chevrolet Corvette takes a big gulp from the fountain of youth, and the result is the new Corvette ZR1.

This $130,000 supercar slayer is even more potent than the already outrageous Corvette Z06. It's supercharged, just like the Z06, but it's even more powerful. Thanks to a reworked supercharged V8  it cranks out an astounding 755 horsepower. (Its supercharger is so big Chevy had to cut a giant hole in the hood to make room for it.) Of course, Chevy will still sell you the 650-hp Z06 or the 455-hp model available in case your budget or sanity won't stretch to the ZR1.

In any guise, the Corvette is a blast to drive. But there's more than amazing performance to recommend the Corvette. The coupe has a larger trunk than you'd expect, the seats are comfortable, and — especially when equipped with adaptive suspension dampers — the ride is surprisingly compliant.

If the Corvette has any real weakness, it's that there are some amazing competitors on the road, and with a top price breaking into six-figure territory, buyers trying to trade dollars for driving excitement are spoiled for choice. But most buyers will be looking at the Stingray and Grand Sport models, and at that price point not much can match the Corvette's specific charms.

The Corvette is American performance writ large, carrying on a proud, homegrown heritage. It's power and speed and fun and a V8 soundtrack.

Trim levels & features

The 2018 Chevrolet Corvette is a two-seat sports car that is available in both coupe and convertible body types. The coupe features a removable roof panel that stows in the trunk, while the convertible has a power-operated soft top. The Stingray and Grand Sport are split into 1LT, 2LT and 3LT subtrims; the Z06 comes in 1LZ, 2LZ and 3LZ subtrims, while the ZR1 comes in either the 1ZR or 3ZR subtrim.

Chevy fits the Stingray, Z51 and Grand Sport with a 6.2-liter V8 (455 horsepower, 460 pound-feet). A performance exhaust that increases output to 460 hp is available on the Stingray and included on the Z51 and Grand Sport models. A seven-speed manual transmission with automatic rev-matched downshifts is standard, while an eight-speed automatic is optional.

Standard features for the Stingray 1LT include 18-inch front and 19-inch rear wheels with summer tires, Brembo brakes, xenon headlights, LED running lights, keyless ignition and entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats and a power-adjustable steering wheel.

You also get OnStar (with a 4G LTE data connection and Wi-Fi hotspot capability), Bluetooth, a driver information display, an 8-inch central touchscreen with Chevy's MyLink infotainment interface, a rearview camera, two USB ports, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a nine-speaker Bose sound system with satellite radio.

All Stingray 2LT models come with front-view parking cameras, auto-dimming driver-side and rearview mirrors, a head-up display, a cargo shade (coupe only), upgraded interior trim, heated and ventilated seats with additional power adjustments, driver-seat memory settings, a theft-deterrent system, and a 10-speaker sound system.

The Stingray 3LT models add premium leather upholstery with extended surface coverage, simulated-suede upper interior trim, and a navigation system that includes the Corvette's unique performance data recorder.

The Z51 package upgrades the Stingray's performance potential with 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels, larger front brakes, slotted brake rotors, sportier suspension tuning, revised transmission gear ratios for snappier responses (manual only), an electronic limited-slip differential, a differential cooler, dry-sump oiling for the V8 engine, and a dual-mode performance exhaust.

The Grand Sport largely mirrors the Stingray Z51 in terms of feature content, but it adds a slew of performance features taken from the Z06, including an upgraded cooling system, wider fenders and tires, adaptive dampers (using Chevy's Magnetic Ride Control system), upgraded suspension components and bigger brakes.

Sport seats are optional on these trim levels.

The Z06 1LZ starts with the Stingray Z51 1LT's standard equipment and adds a supercharged V8 (650 hp, 650 lb-ft), a Z06-specific sport-tuned suspension with adaptive dampers, larger brakes, wider tires, a carbon-fiber hood, a more aggressive aero package (including wider front and rear fenders, expanded cooling vents, and a unique front grille and rear fascia) and the head-up display. The Z06 2LZ gets the 2LT's upgrades, while the Z06 3LZ gets the 3LT's upgrades.

For the Grand Sport and the Z06, Chevy offers a Z07 performance package. It adds carbon-ceramic brakes, an even more aggressively tuned suspension, bigger and stickier tires, and extra aerodynamic body pieces.

The new-for-2019 ZR1 ups the power to 755 hp and 715 lb-ft of torque, along with accompanying upgrades that mirror the Z07 package. It can be equipped with either the seven-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic transmission. Exterior and interior styling cues also set the ZR1 apart. Its two trims, the 1ZR and 3ZR, otherwise match the equipment upgrades on 1LT and 3LT Corvettes.

For all Corvettes, various interior and exterior styling and trim upgrades are also available, and some of the higher trim-level features, such as the audio system and performance data recorder, are optional on lower trims.

Driving

With the Grand Sport package or higher, the Corvette is an almost telepathic performer. The engine and brakes are both very strong and easy to modulate, and the manual transmission operates smoothly. Steering feel is lacking at the limit, but those limits are far beyond what most roads allow.

Acceleration

Mat the gas and the Stingray's 6.2-liter V8 unleashes a breathtaking wave of force. The Corvette has power everywhere in the rev range, and it's hugely fun at partial or full throttle. The Z06 and new ZR1 come with more powerful engines, but this one is more than enough.

Braking

The brakes are strong and consistent. In our tests, a Corvette Stingray came to a stop from 60 mph in just 95 feet, which is impressive performance. Even better, the pedal feels very natural, and it's easy to modulate.

Steering

The steering is weighted nicely and is very precise. It's easy to place the car right where you want it. That said, there's almost no road feel from the steering wheel. The car's incredible grip makes that less of an issue, but it's difficult to know when you're approaching its limits.

Handling

The Corvette just sticks to the ground and isn't bothered by mid-corner corrections or bumps. It changes directions unbelievably quick, with negligible body roll and drama. Unfortunately, it's a challenge to recover the back end if you push past the car's limits.

Drivability

The manual is easy to shift. The clutch uptake is predictable and the throttle response is linear, so it's easy to make smooth starts. Shifting on the go is similarly friendly, and rev-matching works well. The fourth-to-fifth shift can catch you out if you're not careful and mistakenly grab seventh.

Comfort

Corvette engineers know that not all owners go to the track, so they tuned the suspension accordingly. Go for the adaptive suspension for the best of both worlds. The standard seats provide good support and comfort in all but extreme driving, where the sport buckets' bolstering is called for.

Seat comfort

The seats have plenty of adjustability and good bolstering. They strike a nice balance between cushioning and support. But they may be a little tight and sit a little high for larger drivers (6 feet or taller).

Ride comfort

Magnetic Ride Control provides a buttoned-down ride without it ever feeling crashy or harsh, and we wouldn't buy a Corvette without it. The ride is surprisingly forgiving for a car with big wheels and run-flat tires.

Noise & vibration

The Corvette is pretty quiet in normal driving. The optional dual-mode exhaust is loud at wide-open throttle, but that's the point. Wind and road noise are minimal.

Climate control

The dual-zone climate control system and heated and cooled seats work well, and they are easy to set. Passengers will especially appreciate having a dedicated air and seat temperature control by their door.

Interior

For a relatively small two-seater, the Corvette surprisingly doesn't feel cramped. The control layout is thoughtful, and the driving position is quite adjustable. Visibility and entry and exit are problematic, however.

Ease of use

Controls are located so the driver can access them easily, and are clearly marked. Driving modes and aids like traction control can be adjusted without using the touchscreen. The rev-match paddles on the steering wheel are easy to accidentally hit during spirited driving, which can be a nuisance.

Getting in/getting out

As with most dedicated sports cars, you'll need to get low to enter the Corvette. Protruding side sill extensions, a steeply raked windshield and an aggressively contoured dashboard all make getting in and out tricky.

Driving position

The seats and steering wheel offer plenty of adjustability, so most drivers will be able to find a good position. Tall drivers may feel the seat is too high even on the lowest setting. All the important controls are within reach, and the gauges and head-up display are easy to read.

Roominess

This two-seater is cozy but wide enough across to allow enough wiggle room so that it never induces claustrophobia. Headroom is decent thanks to a roofline that arches up higher than the windshield header.

Visibility

Taller drivers have an unusual view out the top-most portion of the windshield, though the overall impression is less bunkerlike than it is in a Camaro. There's a good view of the road ahead, helping with confidence during spirited driving. The rearward view isn't so great.

Quality

The interior materials look and feel appropriate for the price, although there were a few small problems with fitment. Materials quality has certainly improved from the last generation. Overall, it's a high-rent-feeling car, even if some body lines aren't as precise as competitors'.

Utility

In coupe guise, the Corvette offers a surprisingly large and usable trunk. It's more than anything else that performs this well has to offer. Small-item storage is a bit lacking, but it's sufficient.

Small-item storage

The shallow center bin has enough space for a phone and wallet, the door pockets are too small for a water bottle, and the cupholders are on the small side, too. The real trick is the hidden storage behind the touchscreen, which slides down. It's sufficient, if not overwhelming.

Cargo space

The Stingray's rear cargo area is large for a sports car, more than enough room for a long trip's worth of luggage. But while the wide, flat cargo area can swallow more gear than you might expect, the smooth carpet allows objects to slide around.

Technology

All of Chevrolet's connectivity tech is available, from smartphone integration to OnStar and even a Wi-Fi hotspot. The MyLink system is fast and easy to use. There aren't many driver safety aids available, however.

Audio & navigation

Bose systems can be disappointing, but this implementation provides quite good sound quality. Navigation is easy enough to use but can lose sight of smaller roads if you're zoomed out.

Smartphone integration

There are two USB ports and a 12-volt outlet in the center console and a USB port in the hidden compartment behind the infotainment screen. There's also Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and Wi-Fi with an optional 4G connection. It's hard to ask for more in a car like this.

Driver aids

Parking cameras in the front and rear are a nice touch, but image quality isn't very good. There's no blind-spot monitoring or rear cross-traffic alert and no forward collision alert. Driving this car is 100 percent the driver's job.

Voice control

Voice control prompts are helpfully displayed on the touchscreen, but functionality isn't as extensive as in some competitors' systems, and phrasing needs to be precise. Entering destinations is easiest if you have an address. Using Apple CarPlay or Android Auto voice control is preferable.

This car is beautiful, very fast and very comfortable. Admiral Blue Metallic turns a lot of heads. Love the engine and performance exhaust sounds. Well worth owning. Our tenth Vette and there will be more 👍
Twice the car...
Kevin Selbig,07/31/2018
I recently purchased a 2019 Stingray with the 2LT package, 8-speed auto, dual mode exhaust, glass roof panel, Nav, performance data system, cameras to help with parking, and more. I had a 2000 Corvette coupe that I sold about 4 years ago. I loved that car, but this new Stingray is twice the car the C5 was. It is better in every respect. Looks, interior quality, options, acceleration, and fuel economy. What other car that can do 190 MPH can get 29 MPG on the highway? I got mine in Admiral Blue, with chrome Z51 style wheels and red brake calipers. It has head turning good looks. I have received many unsolicited compliments on it's appearance. It is such an upgrade over my last one. Even when comparing the C6, this one has it beat hands down. About the only thing I would change is to have side bind zone alert. It isn't available on the car at all. We never used to need it, right, but now that I have another car with that feature, I like it and kind of expect it on newer cars. I have only a little over 700 miles on the car so far, but have loved every mile I've driven.

2019 Chevrolet Corvette video

With 755 horsepower the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette zr1 is the most powerful Corvette ever it's also the most technologically advanced behind me are the rolling s's at Road Atlanta and we're here to see if we can reach to the supercar levels of performance afforded by this thing's massive power big tires and the tall wing on the back after that we'll take to the streets to see if a car this powerful can behave itself in public this is a monster of a car I've had some brief track opportunities moving this morning to get used to the pace of this machine which is phenomenal we're gonna warm up as we get out to the road Atlanta and sort of build up to the pace that this car can operate at now initially when you hop in this car you have this shrine to the engine right above you you see the line of the hood it kind of dominates the center of the view you can see over it it doesn't affect visibility but it's immediately obvious and that kind of speaks to what makes this car special it's a monster of an engine listen to that [Music] that is tremendous tremendous acceleration and incredible power but what I finding so far my brief time here at the Atlanta is that everything else in the car is rut has risen to match hurt me while I lay into it on the back straight look you know 150 mile-an-hour indicated we're going to ease up a little bit on it because I need to focus on talking rather than driving but like I was saying the attributes of the rest of the car the steering the braking capability the grip every system of this car is riding to the same level of the power and I think that's what makes it really impressive initially this is undoubtedly a mega mega fast car but it's one that doesn't terrify you with its performance potential there's a level of electronic sophistication that is unparalleled at this price point but it's hard not to get you know totally slipped away by the power of this engine so that's why I keep coming back to it this car has an electronically controlled limited slip differential it has shocks filled with magnetically responsive fluid that can react faster to inputs and everything this car has a super sophisticated stability control system that teaches you how to drive it quick but also makes you go faster we haven't even gotten into exploring it yet because the limits of this car are so high that frankly it takes a while to grow into it but [Music] I think what's impressive about this car is despite how fast it is it is approachable you can buy this car to track dates with it and grow with it as a driver and as an owner I think that's a really special [Music] because you will never be more talented than this car is fast ever unless you are a racing driver casually grazing under 50 miles an hour on this straight okay I'm just going to enjoy driving this now [Music] [Applause] [Music] this particular Corvette zr1 comes with the cars track performance package a lot of those changes happen underneath the sheet metal but one of the big differences that is immediately obvious is this giant carbon fiber wing now the way this thing is mounted is actually into the structure of the vehicle and it makes you know loading the rear hatch a bit more difficult but we're assuming that's okay if you're looking for the track performance this thing delivers also giving you that performance are these Michelin Pilot Sport cup tires which are basically track oriented tires that you can drive on the street but as we wake our way to the front of the thing what really matters is what's under the hood that's right there's actually a hole in the hood of this thing and that's because this engine is so tall it's tall because it has a larger supercharger and a bunch of added cooling on it to help it you know keep at the right temperature the supercharger is way larger than the one on the zo six and it has a more cooling capacity and the downside is it's taller so it pops literally through the hood the cool thing is from the top you can actually see this shake when you're looking at it from you know a camera from the top of the vehicle this all makes for 755 horsepower making this the most powerful Corvette ever now what's important about that is this not just the power but likewise everything in the car has to be built to accommodate and be able to drive to the level of speed this thing can develop that's why you had the massive cooling so I had the aerodynamics and that's why I had the electronic sophistication inside [Applause] we had a lot of time to take this car on the track yesterday and I've had the night to think about things Matt today two crews on the road and see how this extreme performance machine deals with the sort of more civil minded stuff of street driving the track impressions remain this thing is unquestionably one of the most capable cars you can get from a dealer these days a lot of that's besides the point now because we're on the street we have speed limits they have the ever-present threat of law enforcement around every corner so the question is what does this car feel like in public when you slow this car down it feels like a more powerful Corvette you don't get much tram lining from these big wheels though we as the front end doesn't want to follow grooves in the pavement it is louder it is a little firmer but it's certainly livable on a day to day basis that's surprising for a vehicle of this capability normally these track oriented cars are so hardcore that you wouldn't want to drive them to the racetrack but let's face it you spend more time driving to the track than you do on the track and the fact that this thing works well in both disciplines is really impressive I can also dial everything back and cruise and not feel like I'm getting punished for driving a hardcore track machine that's a that's a really nice accomplishment that's something that you won't find in cars that are this fast and costs maybe double this much the engine in this car dominates the entire experience you can't miss the engine and the whole friend this car is sort of a shrine to it the way it pops out of the hood the way it's covered with coolers around the sides it is the experience of this car and that does make driving this thing special and also the fact that it doesn't look half bad either in fact I think it has some of the coolest looking wheels currently available on a new car this car as we mentioned this car has the track package the track package on this car gives you what they call competition bucket seats which are a little wide for my tastes but I'm you know not the widest person in the world this automatic transmission works well I mean there's so much torque again out of this engine that it can be very smooth and almost imperceptible its clunky on occasion I think I'd might opt for the manual although Chevy tells me about 80% of its customers will go for the automatic I don't think they're gonna be disappointed and that's gonna be the faster transmission drag strip on the street - and on the racetrack man it was a little bit more satisfying to my taste though we've talked about the exhaust I have it set in the track setting let's quiet it down a little bit so you can hear the difference now I've set that separately from everything else so let's put it stealth what happened to the engine sound that's pretty that's pretty amazing man stealth is really stealth and then go back to track Wow actually a really big difference that's that's pretty great the Corvette has always been a strong value proposition and nowhere is that more evident than this zr1 giving you a nearly unbeatable track performance per dollar now the nice thing is on the road this doesn't feel like a ragged edge track machine either you could genuinely drive it every day the compromises are few and that's what makes this car so special if you like what you see keep it tuned right here and be sure to visit

Chevrolet Corvette vs. Chevrolet Camaro

The Camaro is the Corvette's little brother, available with either a four- or a six-cylinder engine or with the Corvette's own 6.2-liter V8. It's a capable performer in its own right, and it has the added benefit of a lower price and a back seat (even if it's more of a parcel shelf than a real seating area). Curiously, the Camaro manages to have more compromised visibility than the Corvette. Still, it's a great option for buyers looking for a lot of fun on a budget.

Chevrolet Corvette vs. Ford Mustang

The Mustang is another more wallet-friendly option with a range of engine choices, including its own excellent V8. Of all the muscle cars, the Ford might be the easiest to live with. It's relatively roomy and comfortable, and the tech is all very user-friendly. While it compromises a bit less, it also can't match the performance potential of its competitors. That said, in Shelby GT350 R guise, it has a sound like nothing else on the road.

Chevrolet Corvette vs. Dodge Challenger

Dodge used the Challenger to kick off a little horsepower war, fitting superchargers to the car's higher-trim-level V8 engines. If all you care about is horsepower per dollar, the Hellcat and Demon can't be beat, even by a Corvette. But this is a true-blue American muscle car: It's comfy, but it's big and heavy. If you're willing to live with a V6, you can get all-wheel drive, making this a more winter-friendly muscle car.

More about the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette

The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette is a singular thing, especially with the introduction of the new 755-horsepower Corvette ZR1. It and the Ohio-made Acura NSX are currently the only production two-seater performance machines being built in the United States. But no one thinks of the NSX as an American car, and no one thinks of the Corvette as anything but the epitome of American automotive culture.

The Corvette is available in a coupe or convertible soft-top body style. The Stingray is equipped with a 6.2-liter V8 engine that produces 455 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Thanks to a dual-mode exhaust, the Grand Sport produces 460 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque. Both Grand Sport and Stingray versions of the Corvette are available in three different trims. Stingray trims can also be equipped with a Z51 performance package that bridges that gap to the Grand Sport, while Grand Sport trims can be equipped with the Z07 package, which is also available on the Z06. The top-dog Corvette Z06 has a supercharged V8 good for 650 hp.

For 2019, Chevrolet has introduced the Corvette ZR1, which uses a larger supercharger to make 755 hp. It comes standard with upgraded suspension and brakes, along with a noticeably tweaked exterior design. The ZR1 also makes use of a new 10-speed automatic in place of the eight-speed. The seven-speed manual is also available.

Driving enthusiasts will probably opt for the 1LT; it's the lightest trim of the group but still has enough capability to handle daily-driver duties. It comes with a Bose nine-speaker audio system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, rear parking camera, eight-way power seats, a power-adjustable tilt-and-telescoping flat-bottomed steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, and keyless entry and ignition.

The 2LT trim adds interior comfort features that are on par with amenities in many luxury cars. Heated and ventilated seats, driver-seat memory function, auto-dimming mirrors, a 10-speaker Bose audio system, a head-up display, front parking camera, HID headlights, and color-matched interior console, instrument panel and door panels.

The 3LT adds significant interior refinement to the Corvette. Premium leather seating surfaces, a navigation system, and color-matched instrument panel and leather-wrapped interior pieces are all included. Available on other trims, the 3LT includes a navigation system. It also has a data recorder that captures GPS track information and video from an HD camera, which feed into an onboard memory card for later replay.

True enthusiasts who want more out of their Stingray can add the Z51 performance package. It includes the Corvette Grand Sport's dual-mode exhaust and provides increased power and torque. This extensive package also includes an electronic limited-slip differential, differential and transmission cooling, additional engine cooling, larger slotted front brakes, a downforce-generating aero package, shorter gear ratios for increased acceleration, Michelin Pilot Super Sport summer tires and stiffer shocks, dampers and roll bars. The Z51 package is available on all Stingray models.

Grand Sport owners looking for more track performance can equip their cars with the Z07 package. This includes a sport-tuned version of the Magnetic Ride Control suspension, carbon-ceramic brakes and Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup 2 high-performance tires.

Don't settle for just any sports car. Let Edmunds help you find and buy the perfect 2019 Chevrolet Corvette for you.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Chevrolet Corvette?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
