Chevrolet 2019 Corvette Grand Sport
There is an excellent video posted on YouTube by Robert with CC&T where he reviews a 2019 Corvette Grand Sport and compares it to his 2016 Corvette Stingray, and to other Corvette models.
As you would expect, Robert, the 2016 Corvette Stingray owner has first-hand knowledge of what differences there are and the pluses and minuses (if any) to the Grand Sport.
Robert’s Cars, Costs and Technology (CC&T) YouTube channel is a place to go for other Corvette review videos that Robert has conducted and posted on his YouTube channel.
As noted by Robert on the video post,
“After owning a C7 Corvette Stingray and driving two different C7 Z06s, I’ve really wanted to try out the C7 Corvette Grand Sport to see how it compares. Bradshaw Chevrolet in Greer, SC hooked me up with this 2019 Watkins Glen Gray Corvette Grand Sport to review. Watch the full video for a comparison and final thoughts at the end!”
The video and discussion by the video producer, Robert with CC&T, provides an excellent overview of the 2019 Corvette Grand Sport as it compares to Robert’s own C7 2016 Corvette Stingray.
No specific model changes for the 2019 model year; could have 2017, 2018, and 2019 models at dealerships
460HP for the 2019 Corvette Grand Sport
650HP for the ZO6
As described by Robert in the video:
Differences/Changes for the Corvette Grand Sport
– Performance exhaust
– More of a track oriented Corvette model
– Cost less than a Corvette ZO6
– Wider body
– Wider tires (Michelin Pilot Super Sport ZP
– Larger brake rotors (brake pads are the same as on the Corvette ZO6
– Performance benefits – front splitter, side rockers, rear spoiler, better cooling
– more glued to the road (i.e. the Michelin wider sticky tires
– excellent performance
Tires were a topic that proved to be interesting when it came to the cost of tires for the Grand Sport; they turn out to be the most expensive tires as compared to others used on other Corvettes, Mustangs, Challengers, etc. Robert provides some graphs to help show the comparisons of the tires (and other graphs on comparing performance etc.
Fuel economy is also mentioned with the 2019 Chevy Corvette having a rating of 15 MPG city, 25 MPG highway, and a combined 18MPG fuel economy rating.
Insurance – the producer showed the cost of his insurance for the Grand Sport versus his older Corvette Stingray insurance cost (with the Grand Sport not being much more than for his Stingray LT1.
Great value, excellent and versatility and performance, very impressed
By the way, due to the type of Michelin, sticky, wide tires, these tires are prone to picking up rocks that might be a concern when you hear them hitting the wheel wells of the Grand Sport. Just something to keep in mind if you plan to use the Grand Sport as a daily-driver.
