  • Canadians, our pricing will be available...........

    ...........by the end of this month. So my reputable source tells me.

    If they maintain the exchange rate that's used on the C7 now I will be most pleased.

    As a Canadian I am also waiting for this.

    I haven't seen anything official from Chevrolet Canada but it seems at launch Canadian Auto Journalists pegged the starting price under 70k. Where did they get their numbers?

    Motormouth Canada says starts under 70k https://driving.ca/chevrolet/corvette/features/feature-story/motor-mouth-mid-engine-corvette-c8-stingray

    Motor illustrated says 69,998

      Since I'm a numbers person I have been on the US and Canadian "build and price" sections for a C7. I priced a 2LT with Z51

      As of today the exchange is $1.33.

      On the US site, that build is $66,450. So if a straight exchange was used we would be at 66450 x 1.33 = $88,738 CAN

      But we are treated well up here. The Canadian price is $75,570. A saving of $13k. Meaning a "GM exchange rate" of $1.14.

      So it's conceivable that for a C8 a $60,000 US price would be sub $70,000 CAN. I hope the writer of that piece is working from some inside info, rather than just doing what I did.

      As an aside I can tell you that Canada appears to have some of the lowest car prices in the world, when same models can be compared.

      The VW Golf R (my car) is sold in Germany where it's made, and UK, US and Canada. The countries I've looked at. By far the lowest price is in Canada.

      It's a question of what the market will bear, and they know us Canadians cannot bear spending money.

        I'm also anxious to see the Canadian numbers. Read somewhere that August 20 is the release date - guess we will see whether that's the case soon.
        1969 Orange L89 Coupe - enjoyed it for 3 years then traded to:
        1972 Yellow Convert with removable HT - enjoyed it for 4 years and joined by:
        1976 Orange Coupe - didn't use it much and sold after 12 years
        2000 Yellow Convertible - new C5 caught my attention and loved it for 15 years
        2015 Silver Z51 Convertible - replaced C5 with C7 then traded for GS after 2 years
        2017 Torch Red Grand Sport Convertible - still here and LOVING it

          I'll post here as soon as I hear, but tomorrow sounds optimistic. But I agree, the sooner the better.

            My dealer told me that GM said Canadian pricing will be made available sometime in August. He is hopeful that it will be Thursday, one week behind US pricing. I hope it won't be any later than that.
            I'm also hoping that GM will be kind to us with the exchange rate used for the C8.

              Still no love for us on pricing. My sales rep once again tells me all they know is pricing will be released in August.
              I live about 35 minutes from GM Canada on the shores of Lake Ontario and the Oshawa Assembly Plant (scheduled roll be closed by end of 2019 barring a miracle). I did a drive by to see if I can see any C8s driven by the big wigs but found nothing. Here’s a couple of pics I snapped of the building.

                  On a somewhat related front does anyone have any idea of when we might get to see the C8 in the sheet metal in Canada. I have an allocation from my dealer and made a down payment but it would be nice to see the car before I have to spec it out.

                    There are no Canadian Tour dates scheduled, so unless anything pops up somewhere, might be on delivery day.

                      I also took advantage of the Golf R prices in Canada in 2016 when I grabbed mine. It was a great car with great value.

                      I keep steeling myself to the Canadian prices. With my build of 2LT with Performance Exhaust, high wing, red seat belts and red calipers I am oh so hopeful of it being under 85K Canadian.

                        Probably never in sheet metal lol. Sorry. Couldn't resist.

                          We will be heading to Arizona for the winter in the first half of October (with our 2017 Grand Sport convertible) and I suspect I will have a much better chance of seeing one in the flesh down there. Might be worth a stop at Spring Mountain (if they would let me in) to do a bit of drooling there. I'll need to ask them if they will let me in for a few hours as we travel down to Tucson. We did do one of the driving schools in December of 2017 but I'm not sure whether that would buy us a day pass.

                            I went to the CNE (Canadian National Exhibition) in Toronto today in hopes GM would have a C8 display set up. Once again nothing... it's pretty obvious GM does not care about the Canadian market.

                              I don't think the CNE is the right venue, but I agree that it's a shame that there has not been a single car shown up here. It's quite possible that I could get delivery and it will be the first I've seen one.
