The Chevy Corvette Stingray is completely redesigned for the 2020 model year. The eight-generation Corvette is boldly different from the previous model with an innovative mid-engine design. In fact, only one piece was carried over from the seventh generation. We have now learned that Chevrolet has released the full performance numbers for the new Corvette.
All 2020 Corvette models will be powered by an all-new 6.2-liter LT2 V8 engine. The base configuration has an output of 490 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque. With the available Z51 Performance Package, the output is increased to 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. This makes the C8 Corvette, the most powerful production Stingray ever.
With the Z51 Performance Package, the C8 Corvette can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds. It can also complete a quarter-mile track run in 11.2 seconds, travelling at 121 mph.
To achieve this high performance, the 2020 Corvette comes with Track mode. With Track mode, you can initiate a “performance launch” by pressing the Track mode button and pressing in the brake and accelerator at the same time. When the car reaches 3,500 rpms, you can release the brake pedal for a thrilling launch experience.
