Chevy has formally revealed pricing for the new C8. Not unexpectedly, the C8 1LT starts under $60,000 by $5 bucks. Chevy says that "1LT is the car for driving purists who want the lightest Stingray possible, but one that's still very well equipped." Moving up is the 2LT which adds comfort and convenience items, and the 3LT "is the utmost in luxury performance, with a leather-wrapped interior."
What's surprising to me is that Chevy doesn't loudly tout more powerful engines. Even with the Z51 performance package, HP is "only" 495 with the "performance exhaust". So now I'm wondering how much HP the non Z51 Vette makes. I must be missing something. No hopped up engine? Perhaps that comes next year.
