Features You Want For Less

Ride in style without breaking the bank in the 2022 GR Supra, which starts at $43,190. Comparatively, the 2022 Corvette starts at $62,195. Even if you were to get the more expensive Supra 3.0 Premium, it would still cost about $7,000 less than the base model Corvette.

You don't have to spend over $60,000 to get interior features that will excite your drive. Both the Corvette and GR Supra 3.0 come standard with a high-quality 10-speaker sound system. The only difference is you get the GR Supra 3.0 for a starting MSRP of $51,540, while the Corvette 1LT starts at $62,195. Additionally, the GR Supra 3.0 has a larger 8.8-in. touchscreen display and heated seats. You'll find an 8-in. touchscreen in all Corvette models. For heated and ventilated driver and passenger seats, you would need to upgrade to the $69,495 Corvette 2TL.

The savings continue with the GR Supra exterior features too. While the Corvette comes standard with 19-in. front/20-in. rear aluminum wheels, even going for the upgraded 19-in. aluminum wheels on the GR Supra 3.0 will still cost less. All-season and summer tires are the standard for the Corvette and GR Supra, respectively. You can add summer tires to the Corvette for an additional cost, but they aren’t standard on any model. Summer tires provide added traction and are ideal for better handling and tighter turns.
