Colors

The 2023 Chevrolet Corvette is available in a dozen exterior colors for all configurations and trim levels. This includes eight standard colors and four available colors that require an additional fee. The eight standard colors for all trim levels are:

  • Arctic White.
  • Black.
  • Torch Red.
  • Ceramic Matrix Gray Metallic.
  • Elkhart Lake Blue Metallic.
  • Hypersonic Gray Metallic.
  • Silver Flare Metallic.
  • Caffeine Metallic.

The four available colors that require a fee are:

  • Accelerate Yellow Metallic.
  • Rapid Blue.
  • Amplify Orange Tintcoat.
  • Red Mist Metallic Tintcoat.

The 2023 Corvette is also available with an exclusive 70th anniversary edition. This edition, which is only available for the 3LT Coupe and the 3LT Convertible, offers two more color options. Choose from the White Pearl Metallic Tricoat or the Carbon Flash Metallic, and customize your Corvette with the available full-length dual racing stripes. The stripes for the White Pearl exterior are in Satin Matrix Gray, while the stripes for the Carbon Flash exterior are in Satin Black Metallic.

You don’t have to splurge for the anniversary edition if you’re looking to add exterior details for a sportier look for your ride. There’s a range of stinger stripes, full-length dual racing stripes, and fender hash marks available for an added fee. There’s a variety of color options available for each of these details, and colors vary by the stripe or mark you choose.

Engine

Nothing beats the adrenaline rush of being behind the wheel of a sports car, and the 2023 Chevy Corvette takes this feeling to the max. Each Corvette comes standard with a 6.2-liter V-8 DI engine, which is similar to previous models. However, this is the first generation to move the engine to mount it behind the passenger compartment rather than in front of it. This move solidifies this mid-engine sports car’s capability, distributing the weight evenly to create an unbeatable handling experience. Whether you’re zipping around the racetrack or making a leisurely cross-country drive, it’s a performance you can enjoy.

The engine still creates the powerful driving experience you expect from Chevrolet vehicles. Paired with an eight-speed dual clutch transmission, the 6.2-liter V-8 engine creates a smooth experience that generates 490 horsepower at 6450 rpm and 465 lb-ft of torque at 5150 rpm. Take things to the next level with available packages that bump up the engine’s power to 495 horsepower with the capability to handle 470 lb-ft of torque. This makes it possible to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in under three seconds and achieve maximum track speeds of 194 mph.

The eight-speed dual clutch transmission is crucial in creating the smooth, speedy driving experience the 2023 Corvette provides. While it’s an automatic transmission, it creates a driving engagement that’s similar to a manual transmission, and it makes it possible to shift gears in mere milliseconds. This is largely thanks to its continuous delivery of power and torque to the wheel, giving you the ultimate control.

Related to the performance, it’s worth noting the fuel efficiency for this mid-engine sports car. The 18.5-gallon fuel tank capacity is impressive for a vehicle of this size, helping you stay on the road longer. It achieves an estimated 19 mpg combined, with an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 16 mpg for city driving and 24 mpg for highway driving.

Specs

Regardless of whether you choose the coupe or the convertible option, this two-seater sports car measures similarly. Clocking in at 182.3 inches long with a wheelbase of 107.18 inches, this compact car proves good things do come in small packages. It offers 37.9 inches of front headroom, 42.8 inches of front legroom, 54.5 inches of front shoulder room, and 52 inches of front hip room.

Each model — excluding the 70th anniversary edition model — comes standard with five-open-spoke, Bright Silver-painted aluminum wheels that are 19 inches in the front and 20 inches in the rear. Opting for the anniversary edition on your 3LT coupe or convertible gets you Midnight Gray forged aluminum wheels, which come with a Red stripe and commemorative wheel center caps. If you’re looking for more ways to customize your Corvette without splurging for the anniversary edition, there are new 20-spoke available wheel options. These forged aluminum wheels are available in four new options, including Gloss Black and Tech Bronze.

Trims

The 2023 Corvette is available in two configurations with three trim levels in each. The trim levels for both the coupe and convertible models are 1LT, 2LT, and 3LT, and, as a reminder, the 70th anniversary edition is only available with 3LT models. Here are the starting manufacturer’s suggested retail prices for each of the trim levels:

  • 1LT Coupe: $64,500 MSRP.
  • 2LT Coupe: $71,800 MSRP.
  • 3LT Coupe: $76,450 MSRP.
  • 1LT Convertible: $72,000 MSRP.
  • 2LT Convertible: $78,800 MSRP.
  • 3 LT Convertible: $83,450 MSRP.
