2023 Chevy Corvette Trim Levels and Standard Features

by Anne-Marie

The 2023 Chevy Corvette trim levels are unmatched in terms of performance and design, yet they cost less than a comparable Ferrari, Porsche, or Lamborghini model. The 2023 Chevy Corvette is not only a fantastic value but also a hot performer in any trim level.

The Corvette delivers a mind-blowing combination of speed, control, and even comfort when driving. However, its biggest attribute is the price, which significantly undercuts that of a number of rival sports cars. The dynamic styling, outstanding feature package, and tire-shredding V8 engine of the 2023 Chevy Corvette Stingray are exhilarating.

With its naturally aspirated V-8 engine positioned beneath the passenger compartment for the first time in the current C8 Corvette generation, it elevates Chevy’s halo sports car to the level of exotic machinery.

A mid-mounted 6.2-liter V8 engine with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox (495 horsepower, 470 lb-ft of torque) powers all models. All 2023 Chevy Corvette trim levels are rear-wheel drive only.

Which 2023 Chevy Corvette Trim Level to Buy?

Choosing which 2023 Chevy Corvette trim level to buy, the midlevel 2LT trim is the best choice for overall value.

Particularly, the interior is made more pleasant by the vehicle’s standard heated and ventilated seats, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic warning makes it easier to see what’s behind you.

I also like the standard head-up display. The costly but highly worthwhile front-end lift system is an option. If you want to track your Corvette, the Z51 package is great, but you may want to skip it.
