Corvette Trims – The Ultimate 2018/9 Buying Guide

Corvette Trims – The Ultimate Corvette C7 Buying Guide
The Corvette trims & packages make it one of the most customizable vehicles on the planet, available in several models, trims and packages. Which model is which? What do you get with each of the packages? We answer all those questions and more in our ultimate Corvette trims buying guide. Here’s all you need to know to find the perfect Corvette!

Trim Levels Explained (ZR1 not included)
Each Corvette C7 is currently available in four models:
– Stingray
– Z51
– Grand Sport
– Z06

and each is available in one of three trim packages
(1LT, 2LT, 3LT).

The model denotes the performance package, while the trims denote the interior package. Each model (Stingray, Z51, GrandSport and Z06) can be had in either 1LT, 2LT or 3LT trims, and each trim adds progressively more leather, carbon fiber and sueded microfiber to the interior.

Each interior trim package (1LT, 2LT, and 3LT) remains the same no matter the model. Step inside a Stingray 2LT, Grandsport 2LT and Z06 2LT and they will look nearly identical.

And remember, each coupe Corvette features a removable targa top! Pop off the roof and slide the targa top into the locking mechanism in the trunk! Plus, any combination of model and trim package can also be had as a full convertible, too!

Check out our complete breakdown below for full details on each model & trim package.
