When the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray was announced, with its jaw-dropping mid-engine redesign and seriously impressive performance specs, performance car enthusiasts everywhere were extremely excited, and for good reason. But one of the most exciting things about the all-new 2020 Corvette Stingray is the starting price of just $59,995.
The 2020 mid-engine Corvette Stingray is equipped with a
potent all-new 6.2-liter V8 engine that makes 495 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of
torque and which achieves a top track speed of 194 mph, making it the most
powerful production Stingray to ever hit the streets. With such impressive performance
numbers, many might expect the 2020 Stingray to cost and arm and a leg.
However, with a starting price of just $59,995, the 2020 Corvette Stingray
isn’t just impressive, it’s affordable, too.
This affordability is central to the entire Chevrolet ethos.
Brian Sweeney, Chevrolet U.S. Vice President, acknowledges that many expected
the transition to the new mid-engine layout to come with a big price spike, but
he stressed the importance of keeping the Corvette attainable for regular
The low price tag, coupled with ultra-high-end performance features, makes the 2020 Corvette Stingray an unrivaled value in the performance car world, and is sure to be a gateway into an exciting world for many drivers. Make sure to stay tuned to Stingray Chevrolet Bartow for all of the latest news regarding the upcoming mid-engine Corvette!
The mid-engine layout lets you peer through a glass panel to
look at the engine even while it’s running, but aside from the cool aesthetic
factor, it’s also a practical choice.
Having the engine in the middle means the weight
distribution is better, there’s more cargo space in the front and rear, and the
driver is positioned further frontward for a more racecar-like feel. The
angular design also serves a dual purpose: the stylish cutouts improve
You’ll feel like you’re flying down the track whenever you
get behind the wheel thanks to the super low-slung stance and the low
positioning of the hood and steering wheel, providing broad sightlines and a
sharp, sporty appearance on the road.
The 2020 Stingray is not only the most powerful Corvette
ever but also the most adaptable, with Front Lift, which raises the front of
the Stingray two inches off the ground when approaching a steep incline or bump
for better ground clearance.
You can use Chevrolet Marketplace to create your Domino’s®
Pizza Profile or log in to your existing profile, allowing you to set your
delivery or pick-up preferences, safely input your payment information, and
place your order whenever hunger strikes. That means you can now have a pizza
waiting for you at home after a long day at the office.
“Domino’s® has offered pizza lovers innovative ordering and
delivery options for years. At the same time, Chevrolet put technologies in
place that allows us to add capabilities to vehicles already on the road, like
the ability for our drivers to order pizza through the touchscreen,” said Scott
Goddard, Marketplace line of business leader, Chevrolet. “This new in-vehicle
solution is a natural collaboration that both Chevy drivers and pizza
connoisseurs can enjoy.”
Domino’s® is the first pizza restaurant offered through Chevrolet Marketplace, which also became the first platform to offer drivers the ability to pay for fuel without having to leave their vehicles. Chevrolet Marketplace is available on millions of General Motors vehicles from the 2017 model year and newer.

If you love the winning style of the Chevy Blazer, then get
ready for more where that came from. The 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer has been
announced and is set to arrive at Stingray Chevrolet Bartow early next year,
bringing plenty of substance and style with it.
“The Trailblazer’s great design enables more personalization,” said Steve Majoros, director of Chevrolet passenger car and crossover marketing. “Trailblazer is a continuation of the design language for Chevy’s crossover family and extends our momentum into one of the industry’s fastest-growing segments.”
The 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer will sit between the Trax and
Equinox, giving Chevy one of the most comprehensive crossover and SUV lineups
going. With the Trailblazer’s arrival, Chevrolet will offer the Trax, Equinox,
Blazer, Traverse, Tahoe, and Suburban, making it easier for drivers to get the
vehicle that perfectly fits their needs.
In addition to continuing the style that’s made the new
Blazer such a hit — including offering an RS trim with two-tone roof — the 2021
Chevy Trailblazer will feature standard technologies like Front Pedestrian
Braking, Automatic Emergency Braking, and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure
Warning, making it one of the smartest choices in the segment.
The new Trailblazer is set to arrive early in 2020, so watch this space for more details leading up to launch. When it arrives, you’ll find it right here in the Stingray Chevrolet Bartow showroom.
Instead of a large grille that takes up the entire front
end, the 2020 Camaro SS will feature a split grille, with a bar the same color
as the body between the upper and lower sections of the grille. The bowtie
emblem now sits higher, in the middle of the narrow upper grille.
Other 2020 Chevrolet Camaro updates include a new 10-speed
automatic transmission available with the 3.6-liter V6 engine. While previously
a 10-speed automatic was only offered with the Camaro’s V8 engine, Chevy has
retooled it for the V6, so every Camaro driver can experience the superior
handling and shifting it provides.
Camaro buyers can also opt for the new LT1 V8 performance
model, which bring together design cues from the Camaro LT and SS trims. The
LT1 has the exterior styling of the LT with the vented hood of the SS, as well
as SS style wheels but with all-season tires instead of summer performance
You can also expect to see new exterior color options,
accent color options for interior and exterior parts like brake calipers and
seatbelts, upgrades to the cabin materials, and expanded availability of some features

A stunning 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport will be serving as the Official Pace Car for the 103rd Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge. This year marks the 16th time a Corvette model has served as the Official Pace Car for the “Greatest Spectacle in Racing” and the 30th time for a Chevrolet vehicle. No other automaker or automobile has earned more Official Pace Car postings than Chevrolet or Corvette.
The first Chevrolet to serve as Official Pace
Car for the Indy 500 was a 1948 Fleetmaster Six convertible, taking the lead in
the race of that same year. The 2019 race, which takes place on May 26, marks
the first time a Corvette has been the Official Pace Car since 2007.
“Chevrolet is honored to lead the way for the
500 once again,” said Steve Majoros, director of Chevrolet passenger car and
crossover marketing. “The Grand Sport is a particularly excellent choice as its
wide body and aerodynamic features are steeped in racing heritage.”
The 2019 Chevy Corvette Grand Sport is practically race-ready itself, offering a 0-60 mph time of just 3.6 seconds. To experience track-capable thrills in your day-to-day, stop into Stingray Chevrolet Bartow and check out our selection of Corvette sports cars.
You may feel confident as a driver, but are you prepared to deal with complicated conditions like heavy rain showers? Driving in the rain can be a totally different experience from driving in dry conditions, meaning you’ll need to go into your commute with a slightly different mindset. These tips will help you get ready to navigate the inevitable rainy commute you’ll face down this spring.
When it’s raining, drive slower. It may seem
obvious, but it cannot be emphasized enough as the foremost tip for safe
driving in the rain. Accelerate more slowly, brake more gradually, and cruise
at a lower speed. This will make your vehicle better able to adapt to the slick
roads beneath your tires.
Another important way to prepare for
unexpected maneuvers or sudden braking is by leaving extra space between yourself
and other vehicles. Increase the following distance between your vehicle and
the vehicle in front of you so you will have more time to react to changes in
the traffic pattern.

If you feel yourself skidding on a wet
surface, do not slam on the brakes. Braking may just reduce traction even more.
Instead, let off the gas and continue to steer in the direction that you want
To make sure that your vehicle is as ready for springtime driving as it can possibly be, stop into Stingray Chevrolet Bartow for your regularly scheduled service.

According to Trip Advisor, one of the best places to go in Central Florida is Orlando. While this Florida epicenter may not be ideal for those who want to escape the big city, Orlando is home to some iconic theme parks, water resorts, and more. Plus, with great food everywhere you go, you can turn your weekend into a sophisticated cuisine tour.
With a mix of many cultures, Tampa has become a truly
international city. Visit Tampa to see Busch Gardens, The Florida Aquarium, the
Museum of Science & Industry, or the beautiful Tampa Bay. If you want to
make a weekend of it, you can pack it all in and really get your money’s worth.
Port Canaveral is great for those who love the shore, yet
this city is also home to the U.S. Air Force Space and Missile Museum. You can
stop by Rikki Tiki Tavern as well, and guided helicopter tours offer you a
perspective you just can’t find elsewhere.

mentioned, but that doesn’t mean it has less to offer. Lakeland has 38 lakes in
the area, and nature lovers will enjoy the wildlife and scenery. You can see
eagles and wild pigs at Circle B Bar Reserve, or you can get some fishing in by

Chevy is going all out in its pursuit of
making the best trucks on the market, and the latest evidence of its quest is
the all-new 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD. The new Silverado HD hits the market
later this year as the most capable of its kind ever made thanks to new
engines, new innovations, and new technologies.
“We set out to make the best HD trucks on the market, bar none,” said Jaclyn McQuaid, chief engineer, Silverado HD. “We increased towing capabilities across the line, not just for dually buyers. We added class-leading towing technologies, such as 15 available camera views, to make trailering more convenient, whether pulling a large cargo trailer or fifth-wheel camper. And we made a host of changes to make tasks easier.”
When it hits, the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD
will hold several advantages over the competition with exclusive features like
a new Allison® 10-speed transmission for the 6.6-liter Duramax® V8, which
enables a 52 percent increase in max towing to a total of 35,500 pounds. It
will also be the only truck in the segment offered with an Autotrac® automatic
two-speed transfer case, 120-volt bed-mounted power outlet, head-up display,
and Power Up/Down Tailgate.
Additional highlights include significant
improvements to box length, width, and volume, including best-in-class 83.5
cubic feet of cargo volume for the 8-foot long box. Like the 2019 Silverado
1500, the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD gets a new DuraBed with roll-formed steel
construction. In addition to bold new looks and larger dimensions, the new
Silverado HD also gets an updated 6.6-liter V8 gas engine that offers 22
percent more torque and 18 percent more max towing capabilities than the
outgoing 6.0-liter V8 gas engine.
There’s a lot to consider with the exciting, all-new 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD, so keep your eyes peeled to learn when you can expect to see it and experience it in person at Stingray Chevrolet Bartow.
The mid-engine Chevy Corvette did not make its long-awaited
world premiere at January’s North American International Auto Show, but we know
that it’s coming and that it won’t be all that much longer before it breaks
cover. In the meantime, we continue to slake our thirst for this exciting car
with spy shots, including a recent look at the mid-engine Corvette interior.
CarScoops’ eagle-eyed photogs snuck a few shots of what he mid-engine Corvette looks like on the inside. Among the highlights: an all-digital instrument cluster that sits behind a flat-bottom two-spoke steering wheel, a massive infotainment screen, and a unique shifter for the presumed automatic transmission. The interior appears to be well-appointed and quite luxurious, which would make it every bit as exciting in the cabin as it promises to be on the road.
The new mid-engine Corvette has been confirmed by Chevrolet big wigs, but there’s little else known about it at the moment. What engine will it get? How much horsepower will it produce? What new technologies will it feature? For these answers and the answer to the ultimate question — when you can expect to see it in the showroom at Stingray Chevrolet Bartow — watch this space and stay tuned.
