Chevrolet Debuts First Mid-Engine Corvette

Chevrolet added a new highlight to their storied history last night with the introduction of the all-new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. This latest ‘Vette to join the family is the first-ever mid-engine design that also happens to carry the fastest 0-60mph time of any entry Corvette.

That under 3-second 0-60 time is courtesy of the most powerful engine ever offered in an entry Corvette, a next-gen 6.2-liter Small Block V8 LT2. Producing 495hp and 470lb.-ft. of torque (with performance exhaust) the 2020 Corvette Stingray has more horsepower and torque than any other entry Corvette in history.

The new mid-engine layout gives the 2020 Stingray:

-Better weight distribution, with the rear weight bias enhancing performance in a straight line and on the track.
-Better responsiveness and sense of control due to driver positioning closer to the front axle, almost on top of the front wheels.
-The fastest 0-60 time of any entry Corvette ever — under three seconds when equipped with Z51 Performance Package.
-A race car-like view of the road due to lower positioning of the hood, instrument panel and steering wheel. -Excellent forward sightlines throughout the vehicle for both driver and passenger.
-An enhancement of Corvette’s traditional utility strengths, with dual trunks for a total of 12.6 cubic feet of cargo volume, ideal for luggage or two sets of golf clubs

Chevrolet will begin production at their Bowling Green, KY plant in the fall of this year and will start at under $60,000.
