After months of speculation, Chevrolet has finally revealed the official starting price of the 2014 Corvette Stingray. The base MSRP for the 450-horsepower Stingray Coupe will be $51,995, while the Stingray Convertible will go for $56,995 (*both prices include a $995 destination fee). This means that the price increase from 2013 to 2014 is just $1,400 for the coupe and $2,395 for the convertible – pretty modest increases considering the upgrade in specifications. Of course, neither price accounts for the sort of dealer markup that might grace early C7 window stickers, especially since less than a third of all Chevrolet dealers will be allocated Corvette models to sell at the car's launch.

Now, these prices are for the base car, so if you're wondering how much a fully loaded Stingray will run, Chevy has given us a good indication of that as well. The coupe we saw on display at the Detroit Auto Show (shown above), for example, would run $73,360 including options such as the $2,800 Z51 Performance Package, $2,495 competition sport seats and the $1,795 Magnetic Ride Control option – just to name a few. Stepping up to the 3LT trim level that brings a full leather interior will run an extra $8,005 over the base price.

While $20,000 in options may seem like a lot, this "as-tested" price still has the C7 competitively priced against rival coupes like the Porsche 911 and Nissan GT-R. Speaking of price comparisons, Chevrolet also points out that the C7 Stingray Z51 costs $2,200 less than the C6 Grand Sport while delivering better acceleration (0-60 mph in less than four seconds) and improved track performance (including more than 1 g in cornering).

As for equipment at the base price level, Chevy says that the coupe and convertible come standard with a seven-speed manual transmission, Bose audio and those stylish HID headlight with LED running lights. The coupe gets a removable carbon fiber roof panel and the convertible will have the ability to lower its top remotely using the key fob. More information about optional and standard equipment can be found in the press release posted below.

      Great price. The increase from last year covers the interior. Very competitive inside and out. I expect this to drive an sell well.

          Yes, the S model will be in the 60s. It's not too hard to just order a base Cayman if you're looking for a great-handling mid engine car. You won't get as nice of a discount as the guy who buys one off the dealer inventory, but he doesn't get to pick a colour.

      52K is very reasonable. And if the last few generations are anything to go by, depreciation will occur rapidly. That's not a bad thing if your in the used car market.

          Import service then...these guys are professionals. They buy the car as an American, then import it over to Canada. You pay a flat fee + transport or something along those lines. Do a google search for 'import US car Canada'.

          As for warranty, is it better than getting raped to the tune of $12,000?

          @Gorgenapper
          Any US dealer caught selling for import can lose their franchise (or at a minimum faces massive fines). Additionally GM wont honor the warranty on a US car in Canada. You have to take it back to the states anytime you need to service it.

      Hahahahaha but its not a Porsche 911 and or a Nissan GT-R - Sorry its Apples and Oranges - I wouldn't pay that much for a corvette no matter what you do to it - it has old man written all over it. they need to figure how to get that image out of our heads. "mainstream people"

        By "mainstream" people, do you mean 20-somethings who are still in school, and driving around in mom's old Explorer, or the newish Honda Civic their parents bought for them a few years ago? The Corvette is more "mainstream" than a 911, and certainly more so than a GT-R is. PS. Pretty much every Porsche and Nissan GT-R I've seen on the road was being driven by a male who looked like he was at least in his 50s. The same could be said for any other car in that price range. That post is so full of fail.

        most sane car lovers in their 30s and 40s would love to have a car like this. The GTR is a non factor in this segment, its sales barely register. I would never pay a premium for that 4WD 3900lb car over this C7. Never.

          I'm in my 30s, and I don't know about you guys in the US but I'd have zero problems driving a C7 Corvette (cyber gray, night race blue metallic or silver) around in Canada. Nobody's going to look for hairy chests, gold chains, or any of the other stereotypes. All they'll see is a tremendously sexy sports car being driven by some lucky dude (who also happens to be just as tremendously sexy as his car).

        Why bother worrying about changing the image for a group of the population that cant afford it anyways? The teens-twenty somethings base their opinions of cars on video games (and maybe a little Top Gear) because thats usually as close to them as they can get. Go buy GTR....on Forza.

        If it were a Ford, you'd be giving it your praise. I guarantee it. The last time Ford had anything to compete directly with the Corvette was the Thunderbird, back in the 1950s. If only they hadn't screwed that up by turning it into a 4 seat coupe in 1958. All of this is coming from a big Mustang fanatic, so I'm no GM fanboy by any stretch. It is what it is though as there is nothing out there like the Corvette. If you want something else with its credentials then you better be willing to shell out a little more dough.
