The all-new next generation 2020 Chevrolet Corvette was unveiled last night in California. The C8 will be the first mid-engine Corvette.
Finally, the next-generation mid-engine 2020 Chevy Corvette Stingray broke cover during a special event in California last night. The long-awaited Vette did not disappoint.
The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray was completely rethought and only a single part has been carried over from the last generation.
It would be powered by the all-new 6.2L LT2 V8 that can deliver up to 495 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine will be mated to an 8-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission. No manual transmission will be offered on the C8 unfortunately.
The 2020 Stingray will also be available with, as an option, the Z51 Package. The package features summer-only performance tires, massive brakes, electronic limited-slip differential (eLSD), a front splitter and a performance exhaust, amongst others.
During the presentation last night, Chevrolet confirmed the coming of the Convertible variant in the near future.
As for the pricing, the 2020 Chevy Corvette C8 will get a starting price, in Canada, of $69,998. That means the C8 is about $5,000 more expensive than the outgoing C7.
Last but not least, a leak, last week, confirmed that the Corvette Z06 will be coming. The high-performance variant should be powered by an LT7 engine, which should be based on Cadillac’s Blackwing twin-turbocharged 4.2-litre V8 engine.
But for now, I’ll let the pictures do the talking.
