Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects for-sale prices on Cars.com for this particular make, model and year.
Best Bets get above-average mpg, class-average or better reliability, class-average or better crash-test ratings, and our recommendation.
These city and highway gas mileage estimates are for the model's standard trim configurations. Where there are optional features, packages or equipment that result in higher gas mileage, those fuel-economy estimates are not included here.

If your life's ambition is to be jostled, bounced, banged up and generally on the receiving end of lumps, you don't need to race a lawn mower around a grass track. Purchase a 1992 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1, and 375-h.p. torture can be yours for a mere
$65,000. The '92 ZR-1 is Chevy's testament to the philosophy: "No pain, no gain." For years Chevrolet has suckered sports car loyalists into believing that it has to hurt to be good. A Dodge Viper doesn't hurt, yet it is very good, much
better than the 'Vette. A Viper is fast, yet comfortable. A 'Vette is fast and uncomfortable. The ZR-1, of course, is the $31,683 option package on the regular $33,635 'Vette coupe that adds the rocket like 5.7-liter, 32-valve, 375-h.p. V-8, a
special dash-mounted key to turn on/off the extra power so the parking valet doesn't depreciate your car in one fell swoop, and a couple of inconspicuous "ZR-1" badges on the fenders so the average passerby can tell you paid $65,000 for your ZR-1 and not
just $33,000 for an ordinary run-of-the-mill coupe. That's another problem with the 'Vette. There's a $30,000 spread between the base coupe and the top-of-the-line ZR-1, but unless you go home at night and study 'Vette lore, the typical consumer
can't tell the two apart without spotting the tiny ZR-1 badge. For $30,000 you'd think the folks at Chevy could spring for a few large decals or something. Of course, for $30,000 Chevy could have offered a few radical styling touches on the ZR-1
that weren't offered on the base coupe. Somehow it seems appropriate that Chevy's new ad theme is "Like a Rock."
