The model range of the Chevrolet Corvette has varied over the generations. The current lineup for the C8 generation of the Corvette has a bend of classic and modern monikers, so which one is the most popular? First, let’s outline the C8 model range.

What models are available for the 2024 Chevrolet Corvette?

The 2024 Chevrolet Corvette model has three basic variants; Stingray, E-Ray, and Z06. The Stingray is the standard model powered by a mid-mounted LT2 V8 engine making up to 495 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque.

The hybrid E-Ray model is both the first hybrid and first all-wheel-drive Corvette in the nameplate’s long history. Its hybrid powertrain uses the same LT2 V8 as the Stingray, but it’s mated to an electric motor turning the total horsepower rating up to 655 hp.

Finally, the mighty Z06 is powered by the flat-plane-crank LT6 V8 rated at 670 hp. That makes it the most powerful naturally aspirated V8 engine ever in a production car. Curiously, it has a lower torque rating than the Stingray and E-Ray, with 460 lb-ft of torque.

All three models in the Corvette range have three trims available. You can get the Stingray in 1LT, 2LT, and 3LT trims, and the other two models are available in 1LZ, 2LZ, and 3LZ trims. All of the above are available as a coupe or a retractable hardtop convertible.

The 2024 Chevy Corvette continues a long tradition of the most affordable model being the most popular. Unsurprisingly, the base Stingray is the most popular model in the Corvette family, according to Edmunds. The most likely reason for this is the pricing.

The 2024 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has a starting MSRP of $66,300. That makes it a bargain compared to European luxury sports cars like the Mercedes-AMG SL, BMW 8 Series, and Porsche 911.

The E-Ray starts at $102,900 and the Z06 begins at $108,100. Those prices are about right for the level of performance and luxury you get in those Corvette variants. However, most drivers interested in the Corvette are attracted to the starting price well under the $100,000 mark.

The different 2024 Chevy Corvette Stingray models

If you’re one of the many Corvette shoppers interested in the Stingray, consider the three trims available. The base 1LT trim has GT1 bucket seats, a rear camera mirror, dual-zone automatic climate control, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a Bose 10-speaker audio system, automatic emergency braking, and lane-keep assist.

The 2LT trim is arguably a better buy, with more features and a starting price of $73,400. It adds power-folding mirrors, heated and ventilated seats, a heated steering wheel, a head-up display, wireless charging, a universal garage door opener, a performance data and video recorder, a Bose Performance Series 14-speaker audio system, and blind-spot monitoring.

The 3LT trim turns the Corvette Stingray into more of a luxury car. In addition to what you get in the 2LT trim, the 3LT adds a custom leather-wrapped interior package, a suede microfiber-wrapped upper interior trim package, Napa leather GT2 bucket seats, and 11 interior color options.

Whatever configuration you use, every Chevy Corvette C8 is an outstanding mid-engine sports car.
