The new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has been named the 2020 MotorTrend Car of the Year. As the first-ever production mid-engine Corvette, the car has had the global attention of amateurs and experts alike, but all were wondering — how good is it, really? As MotorTrend has concluded, it’s actually quite good.
This is just the third time in the 66-year history of the Corvette that it has earned MotorTrend’s Car of the Year award.
The Corvette Stingray sets new standards by providing more speed and more power than any other entry-level Corvette before it. It boasts a next-generation 6.2-liter Small Block V8 under the hood, which is rated at 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. With the optional Z51 Performance Package, this model goes from 0-60 mph in just 2.9 seconds.
Its fresh design draws inspiration from the race track, with sweeping, aerodynamic lines and unique mid-engine design. The best of modern technology, customization options, and a relatively low starting price make this exceptional sports car even more appealing.
With the amount of anticipation there had been for the new Corvette Stingray, it was almost bound to fail. But Chevrolet managed something extraordinary with the first-ever mid-engine variant of its most famous car. Get behind the wheel of the 2020 MotorTrend Car of the Year at Stingray Chevrolet Bartow!
