2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray: Features, Specs & Trims
They ultimately did it! After unending rumors that Chevy was going to build a mid-engine Corvette, it finally happened. The mid-engine ‘Vette is real and it's amazing!’ So, why the switch from a front-engine style to a mid-engine one? It's about balance, or weight distribution to be more exact. In a front-engine style, most of the weight is found at the front of the vehicle. In a mid-engine style, the weight is spread more equally throughout the vehicle giving it better straight-line performance and better handling qualities. Let's dig into the specifics of the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.
Throughout the years, the trademark of the Corvette has been power and the 2020 Corvette Stingray not just continues that track record but advances it to brand-new heights. The gem of the 2020 Corvette Stingray is the next-generation 6.2 L LT2 V-8 engine. When outfitted with the performance exhaust this engine produces 495hp and 470 lb-ft of torque, it's the most powerful entry Corvette ever. The next-gen V8 is mated to Chevy's first 8-speed dual-clutch transmission. This transmission was distinctively made so that gears 1-6 are designed to benefit from the power, while the tall 7-8 gears produce simple and easy long-distance cruising and superb fuel efficiency.
Put simply, the all-new Corvette Stingray is stunning. It's lovely, and while looking at the Stingray you can see the familial similarities, yet it's actually an all-new car. Chevrolet boasts that just a single component has actually remained from the current Corvette. Like your family photos on the fireplace mantle, the LT2 V-8 is given the limelight via the large, rear hatch window. Large side air intakes, low profile headlights, and completely concealed door, hood, and hatch releases highlight the all-new shape of the all-new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. Get into the driver's seat and it will seem more like a jet aircraft instead of a sports car. From the upright climate controls to the race-inspired steering wheel to the optional Competition Sport seating, it is obvious that the 2020 Chevy Corvette Stingray is no normal car.
It's not a surprise, but the all-new Chevy Corvette Stingray is packed with innovative technology. Some of the new tech features in the Stingray are one-touch Bluetooth pairing, wireless smart device charging, learn-as-you-go voice recognition, and a new 12-inch adjustable digital dash. The show stoppers are the Performance Data Recorder, Driver Mode Selector and the Front Lift system. Driver Mode Selector lets you adjust up to 12 performance variables, while the Performance Data Recorder is your electronic driving coach that records your speed, braking, gear selection and more. The Valet Mode records information and video, so you can keep an eye on anyone who drives your Stingray. The Front Lift technology is all-new, this optional system will certainly be a big hit for those drivers with steep driveways or speed bumps on their daily commute. The system not only elevates the front end of your Corvette almost 2 inches, it remembers up to 1,000 GPS locations and can engage the system automatically. No matter how you look at it, the 2020 Corvette Stingray is a gigantic leap forward.
