Next-level precision, power, and elegance begin with the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette.
What’s new for the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette?
The 2020 Corvette has been completely redesigned, with a new mid-engine body style that’s made it the most talked-about sports car to hit the pavement this year. Indeed, the C8 Corvette is Motortrend’s Car of the Year for 2020 and the 2020 North American Car of the Year. This new take on the iconic sports car also earned top ratings from third-party reviewers like Edmunds and Car and Driver.
So what makes the new eight-generation C8 Corvette so coveted? First of all, there are the added benefits of its new mid-engine design. Then there’s its accessible, yet masterful handling. Best of all, you get world-class style and performance at an unbeatable price.
Why choose the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette?
To squeeze even more performance from the iconic Corvette, Chevy decided on a new mid-engine body style. The design’s most obvious advantages are in the weight distribution department.
The results of these changes are readily apparent–the C8 Corvette is a formidable force on the track. This sports car’s excellent handling balance and grip are easily accessible, too, which means you don’t need to be a Formula 1 driver to push the C8 to its limits. In daily driving, the powertrain supplies plenty of enthusiasm. And, as always, the Corvette is a world-class grand-touring vehicle, turning long trips into pleasure cruises.
Inside, the C8 puts a big emphasis on the driver. From your place at the steering wheel, all controls are within easy reach, maximizing convenience. This sports car is equally luxurious, with high-end materials throughout the cockpit and a wealth of cutting-edge tech features at your behest.
What engine powers the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette?
All three Corvette trim models utilize the same mid-mounted engine, a 6.2-liter V8 that burns rubber with 490 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. This new powerhouse utilizes an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission – a first for the line – that powers the rear wheels.
For a bump in power, add the Z51 Performance package to any trim model. Thanks to this package’s performance exhaust system, engine output increases to 495 horses and 470 pound-feet of torque. The package doesn’t stop there: it upgrades both the powertrain and chassis with features like adaptive suspension dampers, a heavy-duty cooling system, and an electronic limited-slip differential.
How much is the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette?
The 2020 Corvette starts at $58,900 – an excellent price for such a snappy sports car. Indeed, in terms of performance, the mid-engine Corvette handily competes with models that go for almost twice as much. And it looks just as good, too.
When and where can I get the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette?
The 2020 Corvette finally began rolling off production lines in Bowling Green, Kentucky, in February 2020. However, this mid-engine sports car proved too popular. After fielding an overwhelming amount of pre-orders, Chevy decided to suspend all orders for the 2020 C8 Corvette just one month later, in March 2020.
If you missed the opportunity to get your hands on the all-new Corvette, don’t fret. Dealerships will begin taking pre-orders for the 2021 Corvette this May. And there’s more good news, because the 2021 Corvette is expected to have an early release.
