New Corvette C8 Named 2020 MotorTrend Car of the Year

The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray takes an undeniable icon and rockets it to the boldest heights ever. It should come as no surprise, then, that the new, mid-engine Corvette C8 was named 2020 MotorTrend Car of the Year, marking the third time the Corvette has claimed the title in the history of the respected publication.

The Corvette was named Car of the Year by MotorTrend for the first time in 1984, and then again in 1998. Now that the Corvette has received the award once again after two decades shows that the Corvette remains now as ever one of the most innovative and bold sports cars available.

In fact, the 2020 Corvette is the first-ever production mid-engine Corvette, marking a drastic design change that lends the all-new Stingray an absolutely gorgeous design as well as some jaw-dropping performance specs. The 2020 Corvette Stingray is, after all, the fastest and most powerful entry-level Corvette in the vehicle’s 66-year history.

With 0-60 mph acceleration in just 2.9 seconds when equipped with the Z51 Performance Package, the 2020 Corvette Stingray is guaranteed to inject endless fun into every drive. And with a starting MSRP of just $59,995, there is no better way to elevate your driving experience.

The new Corvette looks even better in person than it does in the pictures. Come see it at your convenience at Terryville Chevrolet!

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.
