The 2020 model year marks a momentous occasion for the Chevy Corvette line — for the first time, the Corvette Stingray is being built as a mid-engine production model, making it the fastest and most potent entry-level Corvette since the sports car launched over 65 years ago.
To add to the celebration, the new Corvette Stingray was recently named the 2020 MotorTrend Car of the Year.
“It’s an honor for the Corvette team to receive this coveted award from MotorTrend against the best the industry has to offer,” commented Tadge Juechter, the Corvette executive chief engineer. “Our design and engineering teams spent several years sweating the details to deliver the first mid-engine Corvette. To have a third party validate our hard work makes it all worthwhile.”
The new impressive Chevy Corvette Stingray can sprint from 0 to 60 in just 2.9 seconds when equipped with the Z51 Performance Package. Its 6.2-liter Small Block V8 LT2 engine unleashes 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque.
