This new engine, that will power the first mid-engine Corvette ever, will develop 495 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque, when equipped with the performance exhaust available with the Z51 Performance Package. Otherwise, the engine hp drops by 5 hp to 490.

Mark Reuss, President of General Motors, during a visit to the plant earlier this week said: “The 2020 Stingray is Chevrolet’s first production mid-engine Corvette – the fastest, most powerful entry Corvette ever – offering new levels of performance, technology and craftsmanship.”

He later added: “The Tonawanda team is up to the challenge to build this new LT2 engine at world-class quality levels that Corvette customers have come to expect.”

As for the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, well, nothing changed as it’ll be built at the Bowling Green, Kentucky assembly plant. The same plant that builds Corvette since 1981.

The production of the C8 will start in late 2019.
