The 2020 Corvette: No Introductions Necessary
Chevy superfans rejoice. After an excruciatingly long wait, the eighth-generation Chevrolet Corvette is finally here. There is a lot to unpack with this gorgeous 2020 Corvette, but the first thing to know is that this is Chevy's first mid-engine super-car in over 50 years.
This is the kind of automotive event that only happens once a generation, so it's time to get yourself over to the Corvette dealership as soon as possible. Here's everything you need to know about the 2020 Corvette.
The 2020 Corvette: The Basics
If you're already furiously typing "corvette dealership near me" into Google, here are the essentials you need to know first. Retail price for the Corvette 2020 starts at $59,995, which makes it a relative bargain compared to previous generations.
That's the price for the 1LT convertible. Other variants increase in price on a sliding scale, topping out at $78,495 for the 3LT convertible.
For that money, you get all the bells and whistles of a super-car. The engine is located behind the passenger cabin, in the same vein as the latest and greatest McLaren and Ferrari models.
Engine & Performance
Now let's get to the juicy stuff. The new Corvette 2020 comes equipped with a 6.2-liter V8 engine, maxing out at an astonishing 495 horsepower.
Recent tests of the model have revealed a 0-60mph time of just 2.8 seconds. The same tests have shown that the Corvette C-8 can cover a quarter mile in 11 seconds flat. Need we say more?
For the first time for a Corvette, the sole transmission is an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic.
Interior and Comfort
This Corvette convertible comes with two roof options. The first is as a coupe with a removable roof panel, the second is with a retractable hardtop. The sleek interior is lined with real leather, suede, and metal.
The cabin is a little smaller than in previous models, with the 2-seat interior being squashed to make room for the engine. You also get a 12-inch touch-screen info and entertainment screen, located right next to the squared-off steering wheel.
Perhaps surprisingly, the 2020 Corvette offers a generous amount of storage space. There are two trunks in total, one behind the engine and one behind the passenger compartment.
Overall you get around 13 cubic feet of storage space, which far outstrips previous models.
You also get a fully-climate controlled cabin, with the interface allowing you to adjust the temperature, humidity, and air in an instant.
As you would come to expect with a new Corvette for sale, there are plenty of little extras to sweeten the deal. As a standard, you get Bluetooth audio streaming, Apple CarPlay, and a full 4G mobile hotspot built in. There are also a couple of nifty safety features. These include a rear cross-traffic alert system and optional blind-spot monitoring. Complimentary maintenance is also covered for the first visit. If you're a first-time car buyer, you'll appreciate the peace of mind this offers.
