Will 2013 Chevrolet Corvette Prices Drop Now That the 2014 Corvette Stingray Is Available?

"Will 2013 Chevrolet Corvette prices drop when the 2014 is available?"


They have already dropped, thanks in part to growing anticipation of the redesigned 2014 Corvette Stingray, which just started arriving at dealerships. A new Corvette is a big deal for aficionados, so they are lining up at dealerships for the 2014 Stingray as this is being written, leaving fewer takers for the 2013 models.

Chevrolet also is offering discounts on the 2013 Corvette, including a $2,000 rebate or 1.9% financing for 60 months, though knocking $2,000 off the price of a car that starts at $50,000 isn't enough to get us running for the nearest Chevy dealer.

Dealers certainly have more room to discount their prices, and most probably are willing to bargain. No one wants expensive hardware like that collecting dust on their lot when they have to pay interest on it each month.

Conversely, demand for the 2014 Corvette Stingray is likely to remain high into next year, with the coupe version being followed by the convertible later this year. That means dealers will be giving small discounts or none at all.

If you're serious about buying a 2013 Corvette, don't wait too long in hopes that prices will keep dropping. Chevrolet stopped producing 2013 models by early March, so you don't have thousands to choose from, and some versions may no longer be available. There are just over 1,000 2013s in Cars.com's national inventory and our guess is that means some of Chevrolet's 3,000 dealers are already out of 2013 Corvettes.
