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!

Sporadic rain and thunderstorms cut my filming short on this review. Hopefully I didn't miss too much. Thanks for watching 👍🏻

If you want a C7 and don't have one don't worry.  You're in a good position.  I have owned a C5, C6, and C7 as daily drivers over the past 20 years.  Here is how I would compare them.... C5: Is a typical vette that balances price and performance.  It's the biggest bang for the buck as many would say and I would agree.  For the corvette line the C5 has a HUD that includes the gas gauge and this means you rarely have to look down at your instrument panel; tac, speed, and gas are all there projected over the road.  The sound system is typical but not exceptional. It is fairly comfortable but still a hard'ish ride.  Over 200 miles you may find yourself shifting in your seat a little but not a big deal for me.  Cornering is good but does not exceed expectations.  It is not as surefooted as an AWD or 4WD and can get squirrely especially when the tires start to wear which is usually every 1.5 years when driven as a daily driver.  I would rate this as a 8 out of 10 for a daily driver.  Car started having the first signs of problems after about 8 years and around 80-90,000 miles.C6: Improves upon the C5 with its handling.  The stereo is still good but not markedly improved over the C5.  Chevrolet removed the gas gauge from the HUD with this model which is a ludicrous decision.  With this model you're forced to look at the instrument panel often if only to look a the gas gauge.  Gas mileage is similar to that of the C5.  Car does get squirrely as tires wear but it's not as bad as the C5 even though many C6 owners have complained in the owner forums about GM putting the wrong type of tires on the car to begin with.  Reliability is good as with the C5.  This car is more comfortable than the C5 with seats that feel fairly padded but secure.  Space is enough to easily fit 6'5" drivers and passengers so if you're tall this car is great for you.  Price and performance are the biggest selling points for this car.  All in all it's a better vehicle than the C5 except for the gas gauge being removed from the HUD.  Tires for each will cost about 1,400 for all 4.  I would rate this as a 9 out of 10 for a daily driver.  Car started having problems after about 11 years and about 120,000 miles.C7 (2019): Handling is vastly improved over the C6 which was improved over the C5.  The gas gauge is still missing from the HUD which is a big disappointment.  This is the first corvette that has a truly good sound system that has deep base and high treble.  Unfortunately this version of the vette lacks a lot of what the C6 got right.  This car has a fogging problem where the other two did not.  Not a big deal you say because you throw the defroster on high... until you notice that air doesn't come out of the defrosters until 15-20 seconds after you put the fan on high... then you have to keep the not entirely quiet fan on medium just to keep the windows relatively fog free.  The C5 and C6's engine would respond immediately when you put your foot on the gas.  The C7 chokes and sputters right off the showroom floor when you first put your foot on the gas.  Release the clutch during this 1/2 second of sputtering and the engine will die.  Again, the C5, C6, and every other car I've driven hasn't had this problem.  Even tested with other C7s on the lot the same thing happens.  This seems to be a problem with the C7 (2019?).  The car generally feels cheaply made and you'll notice it within the first 6,000 miles; it will make some whines, whirls, and clunks that you've never heard in a new car.  The tires they put on this car take low speed tight corner turn jerking to a new level.  It is so bad that you wouldn't know if you hit another car or if the tires are simply skidding under you when you turn in a parking lot.  GM even has a disclaimer/warning about this that comes with the car.  Make sure you get all season tires as the summer tires they put on the car can get very very slippery in inclement weather.  The interior is very tight compared to the C5 and C6 and those owners will have to get use to the tight cockpit.  There's better visibility than the C6; which has worse visibility than the C5.  If GM fixed the throttle with the C7, the defrosting problems, and worked out whatever bugs in the engine that make high pitched whirling noises then the C7 would have been a contender.  Oh, and the recycled air option that you're thankful to have when there's a bad odor, exhaust, or cigarette smoke outside your car doesn't exist in the C7.  The button is there but it still lets outside air into the cabin so sniff away at the exhaust fumes from the truck ahead of you because you're in the C7.  So far the car hasn't had any problems but from the sounds and feel of this car (after owning the C5 and C6 for so many years) it won't be long until major problems likely will start rearing their ugly heads.My advise - find a low mileage C6 instead of buying a C7.

C'mon a Chevy Grand Sport with a stock engine, despite all the other performance enhancements. It's time Chevy made an exclusive engine for it. How about a LS-7 (427CID) naturally aspirated ohv & UPDATED. That would make it a REAL GRAND SPORT. Transmission need not matter. Then,we'll see the sales $$$$$$$$$♡

Good reviews and details videos

Am I the only one not looking forward to the C8?

The horsepower difference is to big compare to z06. Its just so stupid ! Why not 500 hp for the GS

Please don’t bash me but. I’m stuck between a grand slam and a hellcat and I can’t make up my mind. Anybody have any pro and cons between them?
Great 1
Chevey should have put that 7.0 V8 in the car WITH Direct injection to make 530hp STOCK!💯

I prefer a little more meat on the tires. Also, wish it were a true hardtop. Otherwise nice car.

Guys, 2019 grand sport Corvette or Jag f-type? I like the interior more on the jag but I hear jags don’t hold much value and have many issues

Nice review! Very informative and the images were well done also.
Matt Pezzino
Honestly I think your stingray looks better than the grandsport
Phil Dolan
$660 for 6 months of insurance...not in NJ...try $2400/year for a 47yr old, no tickets. NJ SUCKS!
Jeff Lucas Astrophotographer
Stingray looks much better still.
