As of June 2022, there is no verified
Corvette crossover, but a tease from GM and a sketch recently shared on their Instagram (@generalmotorsdesign) has the auto world buzzing.
Back in early 2021, GM teased the possibility of an electric Corvette crossover to go head-to-head with the likes of the
Porsche Cayenne, but they seem to be holding most of their plans pretty close to the chest.
Reps have let a few things slip, though, and
Jerry has been quick to pick up the knowledge they’ve dropped. Read on to find out everything Jerry’s
team of experts could learn about Chevrolet’s rumored new ride—and how you can get the lowest rates on your
What crossovers does Corvette have?
None—yet. But rumor has it we could see a Corvette crossover as soon as 2025.
What’s the difference between crossovers and SUVs?
People often think the terms “crossover” and “SUV” are interchangeable, but they do represent two entirely separate classes of vehicle:
A crossover is built on a car chassis
An SUV is built on a truck chassis
That’s why crossovers tend to be smaller than SUVs—cars are smaller than trucks, so you can do that math. What’s more interesting, though, is that automakers will often refer to their crossovers as “compact SUVs” or even “subcompact SUVs” for better marketing.

How powerful are Corvette crossovers?
If the idea of turning one of America’s most iconic sports cars into a family hauler gives you nightmares, let us put you at ease with visions of the Lamborghini Urus and Porsche Cayenne. In fact, in terms of power, GM vice chairman Bob Lutz says his ideal Corvette crossover will be “Porsche Cayenne-like, only much better, and a little bigger.”
Color us intrigued. Perhaps the Hummer EV Edition 1 powertrain could be a contender with its monumental 11,500 lb-ft of torque and up to 1,000 horses?
Obviously, we don’t know at this point just how powerful the Corvette crossover might be, but if we look at a cross-section of the competition, we can get an idea, right?
Let’s look at a few potential rivals for the Corvette crossover:
Are Corvette crossovers good on gas?
Corvettes aren’t known for their great gas mileage. That said, if the rumors are true, the Corvette crossover will be electric, so fuel economy won’t even be a thing. But just for giggles, let’s take a look at what the competition will have to offer by way of fuel economy so we can get a better idea of the field we’ll be playing on.

Are Corvette crossovers safe?
Generally speaking, higher-end luxury sedans and sports cars often hit the dealer lot with no publicly-available crash test information. The expense is just too great for the two key independent reporting agencies in the U.S.—The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA)—to warrant the expense necessary to test every vehicle. For example, no Porsche has ever been tested by either of these agencies, and no ‘Vettes have been tested in over a decade.
But worry not! To be certified for sale, all car models have to meet minimum federal public safety standards through internal crash testing. Also, a few of the Corvette crossover’s potential rivals have reached enough sales volume to warrant testing. Let’s take a look at how they rate.
Are Corvette crossovers reliable?
One can only assume that if a Corvette crossover’s potential reliability would be comparable to that of the original, right? So let’s see how the Corvette rates in terms of reliability.
RepairPal gives the Corvette a 3.0/5.0 for reliability, which isn’t great, but it’s also not terrible. RepairPal gives their ratings based on the severity, frequency, and cost of a given model’s repairs. Corvettes rank somewhat poorly because severity and cost of repairs is high, but the frequency is very low. In fact, the average annual cost for repairs on a Corvette is only $737, which is only slightly above average both for its segment and for vehicles on average.
Reliability isn’t only about repairs, though, and that’s why J.D. Power includes factors like driving experience, resale value, and even dealership experience alongside quality and reliability in their ratings. Based on these factors, the Corvette tied with The Porsche 718 for the
Best Premium Sporty Car of 2022!
Key Takeaway Corvettes rarely need repairs, but when they do, those repairs tend to be expensive.
When can I buy a Corvette crossover?
Rumor has it we could see the Corvette crossover hitting the streets as soon as 2025.
