Earlier this summer, Chevy unveiled the all-new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, marking the first time the Corvette will be sold as a mid-engine performance car. What are the benefits of a mid-engine layout? According to Chevy, they include better weight distribution, better responsiveness, a faster 0-60 mph time, a better (racecar-like) view of the road, and more cargo volume thanks to dual trunks.
So what engine will be located in the middle of the Stingray? The 2020 Corvette Stingray will take its power from a 6.2-liter small block V8 LT2 engine that pumps out 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, making it the most powerful street-legal Corvette to date. The engine is partnered with Chevy’s first eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, allowing for super-fast shifts.
But the 2020 Corvette Stingray is about more than just performance. It’s also about luxury. That’s why premium materials include carbon fiber trim for the sport seats, stainless steel speaker grilles for the Bose Performance Series audio System, and hands-wrapped, cut-and-sew leather components. You can choose among three seat options, six interior color schemes, and 12 exterior colors, including three new ones: Zeus Bronze, Accelerate Yellow, and Rapid Blue.
The Chevy Corvette Stingray will enter into production later this year for the 2020 model year. If you want to make sure you’re one of the lucky folks to get this incredible performance beast, hit up the sales team at Jack Schmitt Chevrolet and we’ll tell you what you need to know.
