About 900 of Chevrolet's 3,000-plus dealers will get Corvette Stingrays when the new 2014 beauty starts rolling off the assembly line in Bowling Green, Ky., this summer.
General Motors just updated its Stingray Sales Guide and earlier announced which dealers would qualify to sell this world-challenging seventh generation version at launch. Matick Chevy in Metro Detroit, for example, will indeed be a part of the excitement and is taking deposits now for the C7, with one of the Midwest’s largest allocations of Vettes to order.
To qualify to sell the 2014 Corvette, Chevy dealerships had to sell at least four Corvettes in 2012. Matick Chevy was way beyond that in 2012, thanks to loyal customers.
Stores receiving the early Stingray allocations still must meet several requirements ahead of the late summer launch.
For example, dealers must have Corvette Stingray specialists in sales and service. Rich Curran is Matick's resident expert. He’ll complete a 1 1/2-day training session at the 2014 Corvette Stingray Dealer Sales Academy at Sprint Mountain Motorsports Ranch in Nevada.
Matick service personnel, including Bill Hazlinsky, also will undergo special training and the dealership will purchase special equipment and tools to service the cars, given the advances in technology and design.
Matick Chevy is taking deposits now on C7 coupes and convertibles, and will NOT charge anything over the MSRP.
