We’re almost 2 weeks right into 2022, and information on the Chevrolet Corvette front has actually been rather quiet. The initial manufacturing Z06 will go across the auction block this month at Barrett-Jackson, but the automobile featured in the public auction won’t be the actual version the high bidder takes home. That ‘Vette won’t be built up until later on this year, perhaps on May 9.
That’s the rumored day for which Chevrolet will certainly begin manufacturing on the 2023 Corvette, according to the Corvette Action Facility. The site points out a message from the automaker to dealerships as the source for the details, also stating 2022 production will upright May 6. That leaves simply three days for model-year transition as opposed to roughly two weeks normally seen.
Furthermore, the message details March 24 as the first day for dealers to put 2023 Corvette orders. Motor1.com has actually contacted Chevrolet to confirm this details and we are awaiting a reaction. We will update this story when brand-new info is readily available.
One point especially absent in all this Corvette babble is a particular reference of the Z06. For that matter, the communication does not especially discuss Stingray either, though we know both trims will be offered in 2023. The Corvette Activity Facility claims dealer allocation for 2023 Corvettes will certainly lump all trim levels together, whereas the Z06 was different for the previous generation. That recommends Stingray and also Z06 manufacturing will start at the same time, however thus far there’s no mention of a precise start date for the high-revving supercar.
When manufacturing does start, buyers can have a long wait before climbing up behind the wheel. Conjecture from at the very least one dealer cases Z06 demand could lead to delay times of three to 4 years for some orders to be filled. If the rumors concerning Z06 costs beginning under $90,000 verify true, it will likely be an incredibly popular equipment.
