2013 Chevrolet Corvette Values

Continuing to ride the wave of its success as the 2008 North American Car of the Year, the midsize Chevrolet Malibu sedan offers minimal changes for 2009. Powered by a 169-hp four-cylinder engine delivering 160 lb-ft of torque paired to a four-speed automatic transmission, the front-wheel-drive Malibu also offers a 3.6L V6 engine with 252 hp and 251 lb-ft of torque, mated to a six-speed automatic with manual shift control. Inside, the five-passenger interior combines a quiet ride along with numerous comfort items and conveniences, including a premium audio system with standard XM satellite radio. EPA fuel economy estimates stand at 22 mpg city/30 mpg hwy for the four-cylinder, while the V6 earns a 17/26 mpg rating. Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid specifications, however, list 26 mpg city/34 mpg hwy, thanks to a gas-electric configuration featuring a small electric motor that starts the 2.4L four-cylinder gasoline engine and adds a small boost of power under high-load conditions; the gas engine generates 164 hp, rising to 169 hp when assisted by the electric motor. Standard safety features include antilock disc brakes, traction control, front-seat side airbags and side curtain airbags.

The 2013 Corvette gets a new option package, dubbed the 60th Anniversary package across all model lines, featuring unique badging and some high quality interior bits. Painted black wheels also make their return as an option across most Corvette models. The big news for 2013 though, is the 427 Edition Corvette. Similar to the Z06, the 427 Edition features Chevrolet's LS7 engine and a 6-speed manual transmission. Unlike the Z06, the 427 Edition is a convertible--the fastest soft top Corvette available.

The Corvette comes with an impressive 430 horsepower, even in base trim. And while the Corvette will never be mistaken for an economy car, it does get a surprising 26 mpg on the highway when equipped with the 6-speed manual transmission. The Corvette's true value comes in its race-tuned engine and handling, its sexy curves and in its grins per mile. All this comes at an entry price of just under $50,000--a terrific performance bargain.
