Trims and Powertrain

Chevy makes the rear-wheel-drive Corvette Stingray in three trim levels: 1LT, 2LT, and 3LT – all of which come as coupes with removable roof panels or convertibles with folding hardtops. The standard 6.2-liter V8 produces 490 horsepower and 465 lb.-ft. of torque, but the available Z71 Performance Package with an upgraded exhaust system will bump up each of those values by five. An eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission completes the powertrain. The EPA’s official estimation on fuel economy is 16 mpg city driving and 24 mpg on the open road.

Standard Equipment and Major Options

The Corvette 1LT gets a selection of performance-focused features: variable assist speed-sensitive steering, Brembo brakes, a six-mode drive selector, and an electronic limited-slip differential. This version also gets remote start, leather-trimmed seats (with perforated inserts and eight-way power adjustments), dual-zone automatic climate control, LED exterior lighting with automatic on/off projector-style headlights, proximity keyless entry, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with a power tilt-and-telescopic column, heated power side mirrors, a 12-inch color gauge cluster with selectable modes, push-button start, and five-spoke aluminum wheels (front: 19-inch x 8.5-inch, back: 20-inch x 11-inch).

The 2LT adds heated and ventilated front seats with power bolster and lumbar controls, a head-up display, a position memory system for both front seats, upgraded side mirrors (with power-fold, integrated turn-signal indicators, and a driver’s-side auto-dimming feature), and a rear camera mirror. The 3LT gets everything from the 2LT plus Nappa leather-trimmed seating, leather-wrapped interior upgrades (upper instrument panel, console, and door trim panels), and sueded microfiber-wrapped upgrades (headliner, visors, and other cabin areas).

One of the most popular options for the Corvette Stingray (all trims) is the Z51 Performance Package, which upgrades the brakes, suspension, exhaust, cooling system, tires, final drive ratio, and differential. This package also adds a unique front splitter and rear spoiler.

The 3LT is only trim that’s eligible for the 70th Anniversary Edition option. This package adds white leather-trimmed seating with red stitching, red seat belts, 70th Anniversary badging (interior and exterior), red-painted brake calipers, a unique VIN sequence, and exclusive forged-aluminum wheels. The most unusual item in this grouping is a set of 70th Anniversary Edition leather travel bags.

Advanced Driver Aids and Safety Systems

The 2023 Corvette’s standard driver-assist technology includes rear parking sensors for all trims, while the 2LT and 3LT also get blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. Its other safety features include a full set of airbags, anti-lock brakes (ABS), traction control, stability control, and a rearview monitor (with a curb-view system added to the 2LT and 3LT).

Infotainment and Connectivity

The Chevrolet Infotainment 3 Plus system with an 8-inch touchscreen is the base version found in the Stingray 1LT. Its features include wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth, SiriusXM satellite radio, and a ten-speaker Bose sound system. The 2LT and 3LT get navigation and a performance data recorder (these items are optional on the 1LT). A 14-speaker Bose audio system and wireless device charging are also standard on these higher trims. Every trim comes with access to Chevrolet connected services (for vehicle monitoring), OnStar (for emergency help), and a Wi-Fi hotspot.
