The 2019 Chevy Corvette is in Production

For Chevy dealers and Corvette devotees, the 2019 Chevrolet Corvettes can’t get here fast enough. Nicknamed The King, this record-setting Corvette features a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that makes 755 horsepower and 715 pound-feet of torque.


“I’ve never driven a Corvette like this before, and nobody else has either, because there’s never been one like this before,” Mark Reuss, executive vice president of Global Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain, said about the 2019 Chevy Corvette ZR1 in a press release.


While the ZR1 made its rounds at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show, production has gone into high gear in Bowling Green, Kentucky. It’s here, at the General Motors Bowling Green Assembly Plant, that the 2019 Chevrolet Corvettes are manufactured.


After a three-month break to rework and update the plant, they returned to 2018 models and begun production on new 2019 Corvettes. While production for 2018 vehicles ended January 22, manufacturing for the 2019 sports cars started on January 29. The Corvette’s “home,” Bowling Green has been the main facility for production since 1981.


Order books opened back in November and with production currently underway, the new 2019 Corvette should go from auto shows to showrooms by spring, making their way to each and every Chevy dealership shortly thereafter.


Pricing for this captivating coupe and convertible ranges from $56,590 (coupe) and $60,590 (convertible) to 119,995 and $123,995 for the ZR1. Although at the Barrett-Jackson charity auction in Scottsdale, the ZR1 sold for $925,000 in support of veterans.
