"Chevrolet's last call for 2023 Corvette Z06 orders is here. Few dealers have Z06 slots left, and the Corvette Assembly Plant takes orders until July 31st—hinting at a Stingray order close."

GM Revamps 2024 Corvette Z06 & E-Ray Rewards and No-Flip Policy

GM has made pivotal changes to the 2024 Z06 and E-Ray strategy. The company has revised its "No-Flip" policy and halted its unique loyalty rewards for these models.

Chevrolet My Reward Points logo

No More Exclusive Rewards

Previously, GM had offered significant reward points to deter new vehicle flips. However, for the 2024 lineup, Chevrolet will grant My Chevy Rewards points based on the vehicle's purchase price. The bonus for retaining the Z06 or E-Ray beyond six months is discontinued.

A Chevrolet representative mentioned, "For the 2024 model, there won't be any special My Chevrolet Rewards for the Corvette Z06. Additionally, any 2024 Corvette Z06 sold within six months of its delivery will see related warranties invalidated."

This policy also holds for the 2024 Corvette E-Ray.

Policy History

Earlier, Chevrolet required a 12-month ownership for reward eligibility, shortened to six months for the Z06. However, post the Speed Phenom issue due to a registration snag, 2023 Corvette Z06 owners can claim rewards after a six-month hold if registered by December 1st.

2024 Corvette Z06: Gas Guzzler Tax Details Unveiled

Corvette enthusiasts, the 2024 Z06 pricing mystery is solved! Chevrolet has clarified the "See Dealer for Pricing" prompt was due to the unlisted Gas Guzzler tax. And good news: the tax remains unchanged from 2023.

Model Gas Guzzler Tax
Base Z06 $2,600
Z06 with Z07 Package $3,000

The Gas Guzzler tax, targeting less fuel-efficient cars since 1978, is applied based on MPG ratings. The base Z06 offers 15 MPG, while the Z06 with the Z07 package gives 14 MPG. With these details, Corvette fans can confidently configure their 2024 Z06 choices.
