After years of breathless anticipation, it’s time to feast your eyes on the first-ever mid-engine Corvette. The all-new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray revealed in July pushes forward the beloved American sports car into a new chapter of excellence. Not only does the new Stingray only use one component from the previous-generation Corvette, but it also enhances power and aerodynamics to the degree that it is now the most powerful entry Corvette ever assembled.
“Corvette has always represented the pinnacle of innovation and boundary-pushing at GM. The traditional front-engine vehicle reached its limits of performance, necessitating the new layout,” said GM President Mark Reuss. “In terms of comfort and fun, it still looks and feels like a Corvette, but drives better than any vehicle in Corvette history. Customers are going to be thrilled with our focus on details and performance across the board.”
The key feature of the 2020 Corvette Stingray is an all-new 6.2-liter LT2 small block V8, which is mounted in the middle of the car and puts out 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. Because of its placement and the aerodynamics of the vehicle proper, the Corvette Stingray is expected to deliver a sub-three-second 0-60 mph time when equipped with the optional Z51 Performance Package.
