2017 Chevrolet Corvette Overview

Data provided by Edmunds

The 2017 Chevrolet Corvette is an iconic sports car that can fit a wide range of budgets and performance expectations. The new 2017 Corvette Grand Sport drives this point home by finding a sweet spot between the base Corvette Stingray and the bonkers Corvette Z06.

Baseball has roots in England. Apple pie has Dutch origins. If you're looking for something quintessentially American, try the iconic Chevrolet Corvette. For more than 60 years, the Corvette has been the definitive American sports car, and the current C7 generation is easily the best Vette yet. The 2017 Chevrolet Corvette lineup gains a new Grand Sport model that combines the handling upgrades of the top-of-the-line Z06 with the manageable power of the base V8 engine. This results in one of the easiest cars on the market to drive fast (on a racetrack, of course). Fortunately, this track-ready performance doesn't come paired with a harsh ride. Across its model lineup, the Corvette continues to be the rare alpha performance car that's also adept at schlepping you and a passenger around in comfort. With prices ranging from the mid-$50,000s to almost double that, there's a Corvette to fit most budgets and appetites for performance. This wide range also opens up the competition to every corner of the world. Historically, the Porsche 911 has been the most direct rival, but other strong rivals such as the BMW M4, Dodge Viper, Ford GT350, Jaguar F-Type, Nissan GT-R and Porsche Cayman and Boxster are all lined up to grab your attention. There's not a bad one in this bunch, but none of them has the cherished spot in American history that the 2017 Chevrolet Corvette enjoys.

The 2017 Chevrolet Corvette is a unique slice of Americana that can compete on the world stage. Performance is stunning, and interior appointments have improved significantly for the current C7 generation.

A new Grand Sport model slots in between the regular Stingray and the supercar-grade Z06, pairing the former's powertrain with the latter's looks and handling. Otherwise, the 2017 Corvette essentially carries over unchanged from last year.

Grand Sport

A bit pricey but the 2LT does give you everything you need/want in a comfortable/capable race car. It is NOT a sports car like a miata or bmw z, this is a race car and it feels all of it.
