The pricing for much of the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette lineup has been offered up by General Motors and while some prices remain the same or drop a bit, those numbers are overshadowed by a collection of pricing increases – although new standard features actually make the 2015 Stingray a better bargain across the board.

Here is your complete 2015 Chevy Corvette Stingray Pricing, reported and explained by TorqueNews.com reporter Patrick Rall.

Since the seventh generation Chevrolet Corvette was introduced with the new look and the Stingray name, the car has been selling like crazy. The early rush for the 2014 Corvette caused a backlog that, at times, spanned months and one of the most popular features was the new Z51 package. Based on the popularity of that performance package, it should come as no surprise that there is a price hike for 2015, but it comes with new standard features that technically make it less expensive than the 2014 models when similarly configured.

2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Pricing
The news that everyone wants to hear is that the basic 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray fastback and convertible have the exact same base pricing as the 2014 models, with the 2015 fastback starting at $53,000 and the 2015 convertible starting at $58,000. On the other hand, the 2015 Corvette Z51 fastback and convertible each receive a $1,000 increase to their base price, with the fastback jumping to $58,000 and drop top model rising to $63,000. No one likes price increases, but it should be noted that for the 2015 model year Stingray, the dual mode performance exhaust system is now a standard feature of the Z51 package. This exhaust adds sound, 5 horsepower and 5lb-ft of torque to the Stingray and after coming as an option for $1,195 in 2014; it is standard in the Z51 package – meaning that the $1,000 increase is actually a decline compared to a similarly equipped 2014 model.

Whether or not 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray buyers opt for the Z51 package, both the fastback and convertible are available in 1LT, 2LT and 3LT trimlines with 1LT being the “base”. For 2015, the 2LT package price has dropped from $4,220 to $4,160 while the premium 3LT trimline has risen from $8,005 in 2014 to $9,450 – although the 3LT system comes standard with the new navigation/Performance Data Recorder that is a $1,795 option for 1LT and 2LT. In other words, the 3LT package pricing has jumped, but much like the Z51 package the 3LT comes with added value that offsets that pricing increase.

One more exciting piece of pricing information for the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is the addition of the high performance 8-speed automatic transmission. While the 7-speed manual transmission is standard on all models, the new 8-speed transmission replaces the previous 6-speed automatic for the 2015 model year. This new gearbox should improve performance and fuel economy, but it does come with a price increase. The 6-speed automatic in the 2014 Stingray was a $1,350 option while adding the two extra gears on raises that price to $1,725 – an increase of $375 that will almost certainly be worth every cent.

A full list of 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray option pricing is available at the bottom of this article.

Special Package Pricing Still Outstanding
While it looks like pretty much every aspect of the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray pricing has been unveiled by General Motors, there are still three missing pieces of the puzzle. We have not yet seen the pricing of either of the Atlantic or Pacific styling packages, but we can expect them to be slightly more expensive than the loaded Corvette fastback or convertible because they are basically fully loaded models with a unique theme. As for the upcoming 2015 Corvette Z06, pricing is expected to begin somewhere in the area of $100,000 to $125,000 – with rumors and management comments suggesting both directions.

I think this rumor is waaay high. IMO, by at least $15k - $20k. Hopefully we'll find out in the next couple months.

The cat is out of the bag quietly, we will soon see who will be right, some on our site which usually have good judgment predictions usually found close to the truth believe it will be a little less than that.

We shall soon see ...

Interesting Z06 pricing thesis, but I respectfully disagree. I think the chances of a base Z06 exceeding $85,000 is less than 5%. Believe 80% probability of initial pricing between $79,000 and $82,000 for a Z06 without any options.

On 1.13.13 Tadge Juechter said, "if you could afford a regular C6, you can afford a StingRay." This statement was echoed by Harlan Charles and Tadge at least twice more before pricing for the StingRay was announced on April 26, 2013. And when the pricing was announced, in spite of tens of major upgrades from the C6 (more HP, more TQ, better brakes, better suspension, better chassis, better interior, better handling, better fuel economy, better looking, etc), the price increase for the 2014 StingRay was only $1,400.

Regarding the Z06's pricing, both Tadge and Harlan have repeatedly said that if you could afford a C6 Z06, you can afford a C7 Z06, with Tadge adding that you will get better than ZR1 performance at a "$35,000 discount."

Tadge and Harlan were honest with us before about StingRay pricing last year. Have full faith in their Z06 pricing honesty at this time too.

Don't forget if you can afford 85k you can afford 100k :)
