Here’s Everything You’re Getting In Your 2020 Chevy Corvette C8 For $69,998

General Motors finally unveiled all the base equipment in the 2020 mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 1LT. For the price, you’re getting quite a lot.

Launched almost a month ago, the C8 Corvette caused quite a stir when its pricing was released. Indeed, with the full redesign, as well as being the first mid-engine Corvette ever, we thought the price will be much higher than the barely $5,000 more expensive price it comes at. In Canada, the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 will start at $69,998.

“Most people thought when we moved the Corvette to mid-engine it would no longer be attainable, but we knew we couldn’t mess with a winning formula and the 2020 Stingray proves it,” said Brian Sweeney, Chevrolet U.S. vice president.

The base 1LT 2020 Corvette will obviously come with the normally aspirated 6.2-litre V8 LT2 capable of 490-horsepower mated to an 8-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission with paddle shifters. With that, even the 1LT is capable of 312 km/h (194 mph) top track speed.

“We’ve packed a lot of performance into the Corvette Stingray at this price when you consider an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, Small Block V-8 and engine-mounted dry sump oil system are all standard,” said Tadge Juechter, Corvette executive chief engineer.
