The 2020 Stingray Gets a Hardtop Option for 2020

2020 Chevrolet Stingray

The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray gets a hardtop option for the first time in the model’s history. Set to go on sale in the second quarter of 2020, the Stingray hardtop convertible comprises two pieces that are powered by six electric motors, letting it fully retract in just 16 seconds at speeds up to 30 mph.

The hardtop improves the Stingray’s performance and security when the top is up, thanks to its hard shell with improved aerodynamics. Chevy has designed the Stingray hardtop convertible with special springs and dampers tuned to create drag that is exactly the same as the Corvette Stingray Coupe.

Both the coupe and the hardtop convertible versions of the Stingray are equipped with a 6.2-liter V8 engine that puts out 495 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. This engine is mounted to an eight-speed automatic transmission with a detachable dual clutch, so drivers can enjoy both effortless gear shifting and having more control over their ride.

The new Corvette Stingray is also the first-ever Corvette with a mid-engine configuration here the engine is placed in the middle of the body underneath the rear seat, rather than at the front or back. This configuration allows for more cargo space and more even weight distribution.

2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Flaunts Mid-Engine Design

2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

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.
