What's New on the 2020 Corvette?

The 2020 Chevy Corvette C8 is one of the most anticipated vehicles in the auto industry with its release. Car enthusiasts have been eager to learn about the latest features and technology offered in the sports car, and how it enhances the quality of the ride for those behind the wheel. The vehicle has been redesigned from the ground up to look more aggressive and pack more power under the hood.

The Corvette now offers a new mid-engine layout that enhances performance by improving handling and corner grip, along with allowing the car to handle more power. The new model also now includes door handles and a hatch that has a cleaner appearance because they're hidden from plain sight. The discreteness of both features also contributes to the aerodynamics of the model. Carbon fiber components and LED lights are a new addition to illuminate the engine and showcase it. It also includes an all-new body structure that is more than 10 percent stiffer than the previous generation and contributes to its confident handling.

The storage has also been thoroughly engineered and features an all-new cargo area in the front, which can be used to store an airline-size overhead bag. The trunk can also hold two large golf bags or the removable roof panel.

2020 Chevy Corvette C8 Horsepower & Safety Unparalleled

The 2020 Corvette C8 is impressive with its performance and can reach a speed of 194 mph. It's built with a 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V-8 engine that can generate 490 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque. When it's equipped with the optional performance exhaust, drivers can get a thrill from the 495 hp and 470 lb-ft that is generated. Chevy boasts that it's the quickest Corvette ever produced by the automaker when it has the Z51 performance package added. Drivers will be impressed that it can reach 60 mph in less than three seconds. 

Active safety features offered in the new Corvette include rear cross traffic alert, side blind zone alert, an HD rear vision camera, a front curb view camera, a rear camera mirror, and rear park assist. The improved visibility for the driver eliminates all blind spots and improves driver confidence.
