2020 Mid-Engine Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

Chevrolet has officially unveiled the 2020 Corvette Stingray, and it’s the most radical redesign in the Corvette’s history. There is no manual transmission not even as an option and a 6.2-liter V-8 “LT2” engine will be standard on the base Stingray model.

Design cues are carried over from the current-generation C7 with sharp edges, horizontal tail lamps and creased flanks.  The 2020 Corvette has an aggressive front fascia with a triangular insert that is flanked by large air intakes. A small spoiler resides below, while there’s a stylish hood and slender headlights above give it a McLaren or Acura NSX vibe. The Corvette Stingray coupe will be the only body style at launch. It features a removable targa top that can be painted body color or made in carbon fiber or clear; it fits in the rear storage area behind the longitudinally placed engine. 

Power comes from a new, mid-mounted 6.2-liter LT2 V8 engine that produces 490 hp (365 kW / 497 PS) and 465 lb-ft (630 Nm) of torque.  However, the optional Z51 Performance Package boasts the output to 495 hp (369 kW / 502 PS) and 470 lb-ft (637 Nm). There are six drive modes that modify the Corvette’s drive systems: Weather, Tour, Sport, Track, MyMode, and Z mode.

Inside the new Corvette design is evolutionary. GM’s next-gen infotainment system sits mid-dash hovering above the NSX-like pushbutton gear selector. A 12-inch digital gauge cluster sits behind the squared-off two-spoke steering wheel, and there are three seat options: GT1, GT2, and Competition Sport, with increasing sportiness. 

The new Corvettes will start to roll of their Bowling Green, Kentucky, line later this year will start from under $60,000. Discover Opulent Club on Apple News.
