The growing anticipation for the upcoming 2020 Chevrolet Corvette is hitting a fever pitch. The latest news for the upcoming “C8” has been focused on the imminent start of production. For the masses, the Chevy Corvette will begin to start its roll out soon enough. The first production 2020 Corvette has been made and already sold for a robust $3 million cost to Rick Hendrick, dubbed the King of Corvettes. He claims he won’t ever drive the vehicle. However, the biggest news has come in the form of fuel efficiency.
Better Than the Previous Generation Corvette
The upcoming mid-engine car has recently learned the final highway mpg rating at a remarkable 27 highway mpg. This rating is better than both the 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S and the previous generation, the “C7”. The previous Corvette was rated at 25 highway mpg. The reason owners aim to drive a 2020 Chevrolet Corvette is to drive at fast speeds. Customers will love knowing the C8 Stingray can launch from zero to 60 mph in only 2.8 seconds with a maximum speed of 184 mph. But production is still yet to start (for now).
Production Is Ready To Ramp Up
The new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette will begin rolling off the assembly line next month after experiencing delays. The current orders are frozen, so customers looking for the 2020 Corvette will have to wait. Custom orders that have come in include widespread similarities like the battery protection package and the Z51 package with MagneRide. For an additional $5,000, buyers get a revamped suspension, performance exhaust, greater engine cooling, an electronic limited-slip rear differential, and more power. MagneRide is a $1,895 upcharge.
More On the 2020 Corvette
The base trim of the 2020 Corvette utilizes a 6.2-Liter LT2 V8 producing 490 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque. Buyers receive solid power from even the base trim, but many customers have decided on gaining the Z51 pack that bounces those numbers to 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. As of January 2020, the new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette is hard to find for purchase, but that will soon change.
The 2020 Corvette has a starting price of $59,995 MSRP (Plus destination fee), while the popular 3LT trim that starts at $72,000 MSRP (Plus destination fee) and adds some excellent touches like extra carbon fiber bits, GT2 seating, microfiber inserts throughout the interior, to name a few extra goodies.

In a class by itself, the all-new Chevrolet Corvette C8 will become entirely synonymous with “High-speed adrenaline” for all owners. Do not take this sports car lightly. It’s one of our favorite vehicles to arrive in 2019. The all-new generation Chevrolet Corvette simply looks like a beautiful spaceship that landed on Earth! It’s stunning and we want our readers to consider the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 as the new champion of sports cars on the road today. Other sports cars may wish they could come as close, but they were not made in the same way the Corvette C8 was. Sleek, fast, optimal, and with the first mid-engine Chevrolet has ever added to their Corvette. Let’s explore all the C8 has to offer customers.
Step Into the C8
The all-new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 was built for the modern professional with a fitted connected charging port, an ultra-responsive touchscreen, and more high-tech goodies. Included in the 2LT and 3LT are improved safety features ranging from Side Blind Zone Alert Mirrors, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Upgraded HD Rear Vision Camera, and an Updated Front Curb View Camera as all cameras capture video in HD. Park Assist will display the distance to the object near the Corvette. GM has truly gone all out to reward Corvette owners will top-notch safety and high-tech features.
“This car is very fast and aerodynamics play a big role in keeping this car stable at all speeds. It is easy to see the influence of aircraft design in the body shape. The body ridges help direct the airflow around the body and into the cooling inlets. Cooling and downforce help keep this vehicle stable,” said Kirk Bennion, part of the C8 Design Team
Create the 2020 Corvette C8 From the Ground Up
Perhaps the most customizable Corvette, the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 will allow more flexibility than before. Owners will have their pick at nearly anything important. For example, an improvement over previous-generation Corvette models, the C8 Stingray trim affords three seating options instead of two. Custom color options now go up for the tones, materials and seatbelt colors. In total, there are two different tones, three materials and six seatbelt colors the owner can decide over. Want LED lighting? That is an option as well. The former “Automobile of the Year” winner by Automobile Magazine and named to back to back Car and Driver “10Best list” in 2018 and 2019, drivers can expect only the best in top-notch materials from Chevrolet.
Carbon Fiber Anyone?
For those who prefer carbon fiber accessories, they can do that. Just want carbon fiber on the front splitter or roof? Maybe both of those and the side skirts, grille and side mirrors? The entire vehicle allows for the choice to be made by the owner. What does this mean? The chances are higher that each Corvette C8 Stingray will look different than any other. To keep customers even happier than all these available options is the low entry price to own a 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 Stingray; the starting price is $60,000 MSRP (plus destination fee). We recommend previous owners of the Corvette to consider trading in and upgrading to the latest Corvette. This kind of speed and horsepower may take getting used to for new owners, but that will be the fun part. Trust us. We can expect the C8 to come to dealerships nationwide by the end of summer 2019.

The summer is starting to cool off, but more heat will be turned up when the all-new new mid-engine Corvette arrives. This Corvette is the first mid-engined supercar Chevy has ever made. While some customers have grown a fondness towards hearing the sound of the engine coming from the hood, Chevrolet had other ideas for their 8th-generation Corvette. Chevrolet knows that some buyers won’t like how they are changing where the engine goes, but there’s no turning back now. Chevrolet has already made up their mind that its evolutionary design will win over new buyers. One fantastic reason why this might be certain? This all-new Corvette will be the fastest one ever made.
Chevrolet Is Winning Over New and Previous Customers Alike
Changes have already been made to direct the upcoming 2020 Chevrolet Corvette away from traditional aspects, and designs like having chrome wheels. Chrome wheels have been a long-running favorite amongst the conventional Corvette fans, but Chevrolet had to revamp their brand. With a new decade approaching and sales that weren’t as glorious as they once were, Chevrolet is making moves. Consider the positives that will come with this bold take on reinventing their prized Corvette sports car. For those Chevy fans that prefer the front-engined Corvette, keep in mind, Chevrolet has lowered the cost of the previous-generation, the C7 Corvette. That might win back some support for those who want to experience the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette. Or perhaps the C8’s 6.2-Liter V8 known as the LT2 is the reason. 495 horsepower with 570 lb-ft of torque is impressive and 40 more horsepower than the previous generation C7 Corvette. However, for those who want the previous-generation Corvette are in luck.
How the Supplier Pricing Discount Works On a C7 Purchase
We’ve learned Chevrolet is extending “Supplier Pricing For Everyone” for the Corvette C7 through September 2nd, 2019. This pricing is reserved for huge discounts on the Corvette in the amount up to $9,404 price cut. There aren’t any hopes to jump through to gain this clearance price. The only way to have more of a savings is by choosing the highest-tier Corvette in the Corvette Z06 that starts at $95,020 MSRP (plus destination fee) and allows for savings of over $9,700. However, customers can expect a fantastic discount on the C7 Corvette, no matter which trim they opt for.
Things To Remember About Discount Deal
Keep in mind, this unique offer is only allowed for customers who are purchasing their C7, not leasing. The only other requirement to achieve these $9,000+ saving is to have owned any Chevrolet Corvette before. This is considered a loyalty discount meant to keep those with a Corvette, in a more modern Corvette. Without a previous Corvette, this deal loses $3,000 in savings for first-time Corvette owners. However, saving $6,000 or more on any vehicle is always a welcomed deal. For those who want to get the ball rolling on a new Corvette, we know the place to drive them home.

Chevrolet has an interesting dilemma on its hands. The latest details regarding the current production of the eighth-generation Chevrolet Corvette dubbed the C8, has been pushed back again. The reason for the push back? The Corvette is too powerful. Testing has revealed that the latest generation Chevrolet Corvette simply launches ahead so hard and strong that the engine is causing damage to the actual frame and glass engine cover. There’s simply too much power for the chassis given the prototypes are fitted with twin-turbo V8s that are producing upwards of nearly 1,000 horsepower. So what does Chevrolet have in mind? Let’s explore.
Producing Engines That Are Too Strong?
Imagine crafting an engine so strong it simply tears apart the surrounding area of the vehicle. That is essentially what is going on behind the scenes. This news is according to sources close to the situation and Hagerty reporting on the subject. General Motors (GM) has missed two of their deadlines already in regards to the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette release, but this shows the automaker is ensuring the product is fully ready to go. No one wants a bent frame or any issues with a vehicle because it can’t handle its g-forces.
General Motors making sure their product is safe and secure is critical, but just the specifics of the current testing are noteworthy. The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 currently has a powertrain that’s simply too powerful it leads to the structural distortion of the vehicle. Specifically, the engine compartment’s glass hatch would break during testing. The acceleration was labeled frightening so much so that GM reached out to their lawyers about any potential risks they would face for producing and selling a vehicle so powerful and fast.
Making Sure the Product Is Glitch Free As Well
Aside from the adjustments that have to be made to the body and structure of the Corvette, the report goes on to say GM is also still figuring out how to adapt its standardized, global GM electrical system. While engineers are still finalizing the new system, this all-important system will infuse more than 100 interlinked computers on its Computer Area Network (CAN) bus. The design and engineering teams have more work to do to create the Corvette in the image they want.
So, with all this said, when can we expect to see the new 2020 Corvette? Hagerty insists the National Corvette Museum’s 25th birthday in August 2019 will be a good bet. Here’s hoping all the right technology of CAN is produced in time and that the frame is made stronger; we certainly hope to see all the strength of the powertrain is kept intact. Let’s hope this summer involves some good weather and the beautiful purr of a new 2020 Corvette. For those who can’t wait till the fall to drive a new Corvette, we know one place to find the newest Chevrolet sports car today.
