for the 2023 model year, chevy inflates the corvette's starting price by $1050 to $63,195. that's for the standard-issue stingray coupe in its base-level 1lt trim. we're still waiting for the bow-tie brand to announce pricing for the 2lt and 3lt trim levels, the convertible lineup, and the hotly anticipated z06 model, which was revealed late last year and is slated to arrive early this year.
while we wait and fantasize about uncorking the z06's glorious flat-plane-crank v-8, chevy attempts to satiate us by releasing a shortlist of what's new for the '23 corvette stingray. it includes a selection of new 20-spoke wheel designs. these intricately styled rims can be had in gloss black for $995, in satin black with a red stripe for $1495, or in ultra-bright machined for $1995. tech bronze is another new color choice, but chevy says it's a dealer-installed accessory. another new exterior detail applies to the optional performance exhaust system, which is now available with black tailpipes for an extra $200.
inside, the 2023 corvette is the same as it ever was. however, there's a new trim option called stealth aluminum. folks who choose the 3lt trim level can now select an adrenaline red dipped interior color scheme, which is a no-cost option. unlike the combination of adrenaline red and jet black seats that are currently offered, the "dipped" treatment covers nearly all of the surfaces in the selected shade.
also new for '23 is the $5995 70th anniversary edition package, which we've previously written about. the special edition commemorates the birth of the original c1 corvette back in 1953. it comes with an exclusive black or white paint job and unique badging as well as red accents inside and out, and the option to add racing stripes for an additional $995. chevy also says that all 2023 corvettes, even those not optioned with the anniversary package, will feature callouts to the nameplate's 70th birthday via interior plaques on the center speaker grille and lower rear window.
