Loading Comparison...


The Chevrolet Corvette is an icon, now in the third year of its seventh generation, which is why it’s sometimes referred to as a C7.

The 2016 Corvette is available with two engines and as a coupe or convertible. The Stingray uses a 6.2-liter V8 making 455 hp and 460 foot-pounds of torque, and can accelerate from 0 to 60 in 3.8 seconds. The Z06 uses a supercharged 6.2-liter making 650 horsepower and 650 foot-pounds of torque; with the 7-speed manual transmission the Z06 can accelerate 0-60 in 3.2 seconds, and with the 8-speed automatic it can do it in an eye-popping 2.95 seconds.

From the start, the C7 was designed with a solid aluminum body structure as a convertible, with the coupe top bringing extra rigidity; historically, convertibles have been created from coupes, so there has always been flexing and shake. That’s a thing of the past, at least with Corvette engineering. Many good things result, from no interior rattles to much better cornering at speed.

The 2016 Stingray and 2016 Corvette Z06 get new options and color-coded interior and exterior design packages with special wheels, a carbon fiber hood, and special convertible tops. There will be 500 models made with the C7.R Edition package that mimics the fantastically successful factory racing cars.

Other new equipment for the 2016 Corvette includes a flat-bottom steering wheel, a power latch for the rear hatch, and an available front camera to prevent hitting the low spoiler on sidewalk curbs.

For all the performance, the Corvette still gets good mileage, with an EPA-estimated 21 mpg Combined city and highway. The Z06 with its humongous 650 horsepower is rated 16 mpg.


The Corvette comes as a Stingray or Z06, in coupe or convertible. Both come loaded with standard equipment.

The 2LT and 3LT interior packages add upholstery upgrades, a Bose 10-speaker audio system, and satellite navigation.

The Z51 package features wheels, brakes, dampers, springs, bars, a dry sump, an LSD, and upgraded cooling for the differential and transmission.

The Z07 upgrade features Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes, adjustable aerodynamic devices front and rear, and Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup 2 tires.


The latest Corvette has a supercar look, and it looks fast standing still. It’s got a long and low hood and swept windshield. As a theme, it flaunts sharp lines and crisp angles, an array of creases and vents, planes that intersect and warp. It’s as striking for the times as was the original split-window Stingray in 1963. And the Z06 has even wider fenders and an array of aerodynamic add-ons. Some observers don’t love the European styling and the Camaro rear end.


The cabin is surprisingly luxurious, even the Z06 with its performance theme. Premium or soft-touch materials, available in deep colors, fully wrap the interior. Napa leather and other upgrade interior materials are available.

There’s either a standard GT seat or Competition Sport seat with more bolstering. The GT seats are supportive, comfortable despite the low-slung cabin, and good for long periods behind the wheel. The Competition Sport seats are designed for smaller guys, so we suggest trying them on before buying.

The instrument panel is simple and focused on the driver, making it clear that the Stingray is about performance. The center stack has a carbon-fiber surround that looks like it came from a six-figure supercar.

Leg and head room are good for six-footers, and there’s lots of room for personal bags under the rear hatch or in the convertible’s trunk. The soft convertible top with raise and lower at 30 mph, so if you’re caught in a sudden thunderstorm in a traffic jam, you’re covered. The top is tight and affords good rearward visibility.

Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system in the Corvette is on par with that in European and Japanese super sports cars. The available Performance Data Recorder logs audio and video including while the car is being valet parked; but mostly it makes available a data overlay of key performance parameters.

Driving Impressions

The C7 Corvette is bred for performance. It can run with cars that cost twice as much. Its 6.2-liter V8, designated LT1, makes all the right sounds, and pushes the car through the quarter mile in 12 seconds with the 7-speed manual transmission, which mates great with the engine. The paddle-shifting 8-speed automatic, designed and built by GM, is a tenth quicker. It matches any dual clutch, and in fact Chevy says it beats the Porsche PDK shift times by 80 milliseconds, an eternity in the world of performance transmissions. During our test miles on the street and the track, we found that the 8-speed does a remarkable job using the paddles or letting the transmission shift itself, programmed by the Drive Mode Selector.

The Performance Traction Management system helps the driver control the car at race speeds. Even with the electronic aids shut down, the Stingray shows off remarkable poise and balance. Flat cornering, over 1 g of lateral grip, nimble reflexes, and accurate electric power steering yield satisfying times for the enthusiast. The Stingray transmits feedback to the driver so it’s easy to feel what the car is doing.

If that weren’t enough, a Z51 package is available to make the Stingray’s performance even hotter. It includes lighter wheels, bigger brakes, an electronic rear differential, adjustable dampers, and tweaked aerodynamics including a rear spoiler. The Magnetic Ride Control is available on Stingrays without the whole Z51 package, along with the wheels and spoiler.


The Corvette Stingray offers the best bang for the buck among high-performance cars.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
