GM Boss Isnít Completely Ruling Out Chevy Corvette Sub-Brand

Never say never.
Still seething over Fordís decision to brand its new electric four-door crossover a Mustang? Rumors have swirled for some time that General Motors could ultimately create a Corvette sub-brand, and a recent report from Motor Trend doesnít completely shut the door on such a notion. The word reportedly comes from GM CEO Mary Barra, who suggested a Corvette sub-brand was unlikely but didnít rule out the idea.


As quoted by Motor Trend, Barra reportedly said ďyou have to be really carefulÖĒ and later said, ďIím not going to say never, but I think if General Motors were to ever do anything, we would a*sess it very, very carefully.Ē The million-dollar question at this point is whether that a*sessment is already in progress, and thatís where GM is mum on the subject.

Would a Corvette sub-brand make sense? From a financial perspective it seems a near certainty, at least according to a report from Morgan Stanley contributor and auto industry analyst Adam Jonas. He believes such a sub-brand could ultimately be worth upwards of $12 billion, though that certainly depends on the models the Corvette brand would offer. Some would argue that Corvette is already something of a sub-brand, with base-model C7 sports cars available under $60,000 and a range of variants that lead to the $120,000, 755-horsepower ZR1. Of course, in this context weíre talking about Corvette crossovers, Corvette EVs, and possibly even Corvette sedans to accompany the mid-engined 2020 C8 Stingray.


Itís certainly a concept thatís been floated Ė hence our motivation to create a Corvette SUV rendering of our own. Barra certainly downplays the possibility of such a thing happening in Motor Trendís article, but you can bet GM executives are watching Ford very closely to see how its Mustang sub-brand ultimately pans out.

GM needs to make a Corvette pick-up. Like a "Silverado ZR71" or some sh*t. They're already running a 6.2L anyways.

Turbocharged V8, ground effects and upgraded brakes, suspension and wheels.



That mahfu*ker would do NUMBERS.

I'm a Ford guy and have a Raptor Supercrew...And I would cop a Sierra Denali ZR71 in a fu*king heartbeat.




Some sh*t like this with a turbo Vette motor and 4WD?



If you're curious about the sound...

Why not? I wish they'd call it a different name. I drive a Stelvio Quadrifoglio last year and that joint was amazing. It danced like a sports car. It'd be dope if the called it the Trackblazer or even better brought back the Typhoon name.

Just saw a commercial for that Chevy employee discount for everyone so just imagine in the future getting one of these at that discounted price.

It would probably be built somewhere we already make SUVs cuz it takes a lot to refit the machinery. The platform would depend on the plant.

If it ever happens and they try to make it at BG, it would take a lot of work reprogramming everything for a vehicle that much larger, meaning the plant would be down for a while and I don't see that happening with the C8 launch/build.

Simply because someone else did it is the absolute worst justification to do anything and doesn’t address the more important nuances of whether they can or should.
