It’s been years in the making, but the newly debuted 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray ushers in the long-awaited mid-engine Corvette. And while the new mid-engine design is certainly the hallmark of the Corvette C8 Stingray, the high-performance sports car has quite a few other tricks up its sleeve.
For starters, the 6.2-liter small-block V8 engine, which you can see through a panel in the Corvette’s rear hatch, now cranks out 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque with the Z51 Performance Package, an improvement over the outgoing ‘Vette. This engine also launches the Stingray from 0 to 60 mph in under 3 seconds and is paired with Chevy’s very first eight-speed dual-clutch transmission.
On the outside, the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray boasts aggressive styling via muscular lines, low-profile headlamps, and big air intakes. The Corvette C8 Stingray is available for 2020 in 12 different head-turning colors. Inside, you will find the new Corvette Stingray packed with innovative tech, like wireless charging, a 10-speaker Bose® premium audio system, real-time traffic, and six driving modes for increased performance. True signs of the Corvette’s luxury include carbon fiber or aluminum trim options and cut-and-sewn leather surfaces.
The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray will go into production later this year, and we’ll keep you posted on when it’s expected to arrive here at Lannan Chevrolet of Woburn.
