The wait is finally over for the first-ever mid-engine Corvette. The 2020 Stingray made its debut last week with much fanfare in California and for good reason. Itís a Corvette the likes weíve never seen, in more ways than one. The iconic American sports car is moving into the future with markedly more European looks, while still keeping its classic roots in mind. Chevrolet says the redesigned 2020 Stingray will deliver new levels of performance, technology, craftsmanship and luxury.

ďCorvette has always represented the pinnacle of innovation and boundary-pushing at GM. The traditional front-engine vehicle reached its limits of performance, necessitating the new layout,Ē said GM President Mark Reuss. ďIn terms of comfort and fun, it still looks and feels like a Corvette, but drives better than any vehicle in Corvette history. Customers are going to be thrilled with our focus on details and performance across the board.Ē

Pricing

Chevrolet made a big deal of announcing the entry-level C8 will go on sale starting from less than $60,000. But keep in mind that price will rise fast and even double for a loaded model. Pre-orders are being taken on a special website. A 3D Visualizer is also available. The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray will go into production at GMís Bowling Green Assembly in late 2019. Look for more pricing and packaging information closer to launch.
