Is The Base 2024 Corvette Stingray A Good Buy?

Let’s join the folks at The Fast Lane Car as they take a closer look at the 2024 Corvette Stingray, the most affordable model in the Corvette lineup priced under $70,000 and find out if can hold its own against its more expensive siblings and other sports cars on the market.

This video spotlights the 2024 Corvette Stingray in its base 1LT trim, offering a closer look at its impressive features. With a robust LT2 V8 engine producing 490 horsepower (or 495 with the performance exhaust), it accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in under four seconds—an exceptional feat for a non-electric, naturally aspirated vehicle in 2023.

Practicality is evident with a spacious trunk and the option to remove the center target panel for open-air driving. The choice between coupe and convertible configurations is available, with all 2024 Corvettes featuring a power retractable front trunk for convenience.

Despite its affordability, the design exudes a premium feel, boasting sleek headlights, well-sized wheels, and a stylish exterior. Inside, the 1LT Corvette offers comfort, a touchscreen navigation display with Google Maps, and a digital instrument cluster. However, some features like heated seats, adaptive cruise control, and a heated steering wheel are exclusive to higher trim levels. The 1LT package maintains a solid tech profile with a touchscreen interface and a well-sized digital instrument cluster. The interior’s premium ambiance includes seat-colored stitching and customizable drive modes.

The 1LT Corvette presents an attractive package considering its price point. It competes favorably with other more budget-friendly sports cars on the market. It is worth noting that securing this vehicle at MSRP without dealer markups may require a bit of effort, but it could be well worth it.
