What We Know About the 2020 Corvette

Just a little over a month ago, Chevrolet revealed the all-new 2020 Corvette. And unless you have been living under a rock, you are well aware that Chevy finally produced a mid-engine car -- they’ve been teasing us with this since the 1960s. Here at Farm Boy Garage, we love all things cars, so we thought it was only fitting to tell you all about the 2020 Corvette. In this week’s blog, your Midwest restoration shop will give you all the details.

Design

The Corvette is an icon! Even Ford lovers can’t deny that the Corvette is a true American supercar. So, how do you take an icon like the Corvette and completely redesign it and not ruin its heritage? If you were to see the new 2020 Corvette without any badges, you can see the resemblance to Corvettes of the past and it hasn’t lost it lineage. This new car is a true masterpiece!

Chevy tells us only one single part was carried over from the previous generation. The door and hatch handles have been completely hidden for a perfectly clean appearance and increased aerodynamics. For even more coolness, the all-new LT2 V8 can be seen through a rear hatch window. I mean how cool is this ride?

Performance

We can’t talk about a Corvette without talking horsepower. For the all-new 2020 mid-engine machine, we have an all-new 6.2L LT2 V8. The 6.2 make 495 horse and 470-pound feet of torque. Making this the most powerful Stingray ever and giving it a top speed of just shy of 200 MPH. A dry-sump oil system is standard for all those g-forces and features continuously variable valve timing to further increase performance.
While we are talking about performance, I am sure you are wondering if the Z51 Performance Package is still an option. You are in luck! The Z51 Package on the 2020 includes summer-only performance tires, massive brakes, electronic limited-slip, front air splitter, and performance exhaust.

Technology

If the location of the powertrain and exterior design wasn’t enough for you, the tech inside the all-new 2020 Corvette is sure to impress. The magnetic ride control has also received a revamp. This system reads the road every millisecond and adapts in a quick as 10 milliseconds to give you the confidence to push the car to the limits.
An electronic dial in the center console will allow you to calibrate up to 12 performance variables and the all-new My Mode and Z-Mode will allow you to personalize performance even more. The center stack also features the latest Infotainment 3 system with an 8-inch color touchscreen.

Steep driveways and speedbumps are a thing of the past with Front Lift. These guys have thought of it all! The available Front Lift will allow you to raise the front of the car almost 2 inches in less than 3 seconds to clear such obstacles.

Pricing

When we first saw the all-new Corvette, our biggest fear was they will be priced out of the range of the typical Corvette buyer, but we were wrong! The 2020 Corvette will be initially available in 3 trim levels and the car will start with an MSRP of $59,995. That is only $4,000 more than the starting price of the 2019 Corvette! Dealers are taking pre-orders now!
