Corvette question

I don't follow year model changes too closely, but I could see myself getting a used or certified one in a few years.

I don't want to ask a "nube" question on a corvette forums, but does anyone here now why a 2019 Grand Sport is about 15K less than a 2018 Grand Sport?

Are packages this much different between 2018 and 2019 models?

Is the 2019 new and on a dealer lot? I've heard the the current gen is being heavily discounted with the new mid-engine coming out soon...

MSRP went up about $500 2018 to 2019 for LT1 Grand Sports. LT2 and LT3 trim levels are more money. Add $5k for LT2 and another $5k for LT3. My guess is that you're looking at discounted/incentivized 2018 LT1s and less discounted 2019 LT3s (or even non discounted LT2s...LT3s seem pretty rare, LT2s seem more common than LT1s).

Edit- I read that wrong. YOu've got to be looking at a 2018 LT3 vs a 2019 LT1 with the 2019 more heavily discounted/incentivized.

This was the dealer I was looking at (25 manuals in stock )

Again!!! not looking at buying new, but this lot has many 2018's and 2019's


Just worried me that I will have to be very careful when looking used in a few years
