NowCar 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray C8

Best Reasons to Get the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8

Written By, Jordan R

The new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 has been a much sought-after muscle car lately with all the Stingray will have to offer. Now going into its eighth generation, 2020 Mid-Engine Corvette Stingray has underdone many changes for the new model year. Aside from a new engine, a 490hp 5.5-liter V8 engine, a new design accompanies the new Stingray C8. Ending a tradition of 70 years, the C8 will come with the engine bay in the rear of the vehicle. However, there are many more reasons to check out the new Chevy Corvette C8 once released.


We all know muscle car lovers have a need for speed, and the 2020 Corvette C8 will definitely deliver. Even when it comes to the base trim, consumers can expect a 6.2-liter V8 engine able to generate 490 horsepower and 465 lb=ft of torque. All of that power allows the Corvette Stingray C8 to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.0 seconds. Real enthusiasts can shave a couple milliseconds off with the $5,000 Z51 performance package that adds a 495hp engine, more effective engine cooling, more advanced brake and suspension components, stickier Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires, and aerodynamic enhancements. The top speed of the Chevy Corvette C8 is 194 mpg, also in its base trim.


Any vehicle designed to burn rubber like that needs some serious engineering. With the engine paired to an 8-speed dual clutch transmission, C8 drivers will not only benefit from the control a dual-clutch transmission offers but the design also helps to lower the Corvette’s center of gravity. Being a part of the General Motors Group, GM added a Magnetic Selective Ride Control to the 2020 Chevy Corvette Stingray C8. An available feature on the C8, if a consumer opts in for the FE4 $1,895 option, they’ll get access to multiple driving modes, including Tour, Sport and Track.

Built with the Consumer in Mind

Looking for a muscle car with value? Starting at an MSRP of $59,995 (plus destination fee), the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 may be a little over the top but let us repeat – it accelerates from 0-60 mph in just 3 seconds. This is not a vehicle for driving the kids to school. This is a muscle car that gives a bang for every buck spent, and the starting MSRP is much lower than competitors claiming high speed and performance.

The new aerodynamic design of the Corvette Stingray C8 also helps with fuel efficiency. Yeah, a muscle car with good fuel efficiency sounds crazy, but with that 8-speed DCT, this muscle car can cruise at steady speeds and deliver between 25 to 30 mpg. Now that’s something for a high-performance muscle car!

Value isn’t the only thing offered. Although built with true-blooded muscle car enthusiasts in mind, maybe the driver has a friend or two. The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 comes with cargo space in pairs with a trunk sharing space with the engine in the rear and some extra space in the front of the vehicle. The interior of the C8 should also be pretty nice, giving the driver a true performance-car feel with a squared-off steering wheel, a 12-inch, reconfigurable gauge cluster, and a driver-angled 8-inch touchscreen. This vehicle is all about adrenaline when it comes right down to it.


What Chevrolet muscle car would complete without options? Do you want to feel the open air, or do you like to be a little more inclusive? With the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8, consumers can get a little bit of both. The new model offers both styles, a coupe and a convertible. The latter uses a new retractable hardtop design that can fold away in 16 seconds while driving up to 30 mph. If going for the former, consumers get a coupe with a roof panel that can be easily removed and stored in the rear cargo compartment.

There’s always room for personalization, especially with a Chevy Corvette. We’re talking everything from exterior and interior colors, stripe designs, seat designs, wheel designs, and performance upgrades that says, “This is MY car.” We know plenty of drivers will spend a long time customizing their 2020 Chevrolet Stingray C8.
