Get your dream car for a fraction of the cost when you go with the GR Supra.
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.
There's more to a quality sports car than just sticking a high-performance engine under the hood.
Keeping the build of a sportscar light is essential for a speedy ride. That's why the GR Supra's suspension includes hollow front and rear stabilizer bars to provide support without adding much weight. The Corvette also has a rear stabilizer bar but doesn’t specify if it’s hollow.
The overall weight of the GR Supra 2.0 is lighter than the Corvette, too. With a curb weight of 3,181 lbs. versus the Corvette's 3,366-lb. dry weight, the GR Supra 2.0 has less to lug around.
Having fewer pounds is also advantageous when it comes to fuel efficiency. When you hit the road, the GR Supra 2.0 has up to an EPA-estimated 25/32/28 (city/highway/combined) MPG rating. Corvette only has an EPA-estimated 16/24/19 (city/highway/combined) MPG rating.
Drive with confidence knowing that the GR Supra is engineered with active driver-assistance technology.
To help keep you safe on the road, the GR Supra comes standard with active safety features like a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD), Lane Departure Warning with Steering Assist (LDW w/SA), Automatic High Beams (AHB), and more.
Beyond Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Side Blind Zone Alert, the Corvette doesn't have active safety features.
Whether you're traveling at top speeds or in adverse weather, both the GR Supra and Corvette come standard with vehicle stability and traction control features to help keep you in control.
The GR Supra provides a dynamic drive and powerful performance at a lower cost than the Corvette.
