New Corvette Stingray Named 2020 MotorTrend Car of the Year

2020 MotorTrend Car of the Year

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!

Chevrolet Silverado Special Edition Models Are Looking Good

Chevrolet Silverado Special Edition Models

If you’re looking for extra style and off-road capability, you can now buy one of two Chevrolet Silverado Special Edition models: the Silverado Midnight Edition and Silverado Rally Edition.

Mark Sobczynski, the Silverado marketing manager said, “Customer choice is a competitive advantage for Chevrolet, because no two truck drivers are alike.” It’s no question the Midnight and Rally Editions offer a tantalizing choice for buyers.

Midnight Edition

The Midnight Edition douses everything in black while upgrading the suspension for rougher terrain.

The grille, bowties, badges, bumpers, off-road assist steps, and exhaust tips get a healthy covering of bold black to create an almost sinister look. Its 18-inch wheels also get painted black and fitted with Goodyear® DuraTrac® off-road tires.

DuraTrac® tires are necessary because the Midnight Edition is about more than just appearances. It includes upgrades from the Z71 Off-Road Package like Rancho mono-tube shocks, automatic locking rear differential, skid plates, as well as an upgraded ground clearance from the 2-inch suspension lift.

Available on the LT, Trail Boss, and Custom Trail Boss trims.

Rally Edition

The street-focused Rally Edition goes for a more athletic, sporty look. The edition provides a choice of black, white, silver, or red exterior colors that show up through the black on the Rally Edition’s custom grille. Race-inspired black stripes roll down the hood and tailgate while the wheels grow to 20-inch black wheels on the Custom trim and 22-inch wheels on the RST trim.

There’s a lot to love about the new Chevrolet Silverado Special Edition models. Ask about getting your hands on one at Stingray Chevrolet Bartow!

2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Revealed

2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

After months of speculation, Chevrolet finally announced the new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray in July, and the news did not disappoint. The new Stingray will be the first-ever mid-engine Corvette, with the engine situated not in the front or back of the car but below the rear seats.

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 aerodynamics.

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.

2020 Chevrolet Camaro Updates Include New Styling, Transmission

2020 Chevrolet Camaro updates

The first thing you notice when you see the upcoming Chevrolet Camaro is the new front-end styling on the SS based on the Camaro Shock that debuted at the 2018 SEMA Show. But that’s just the beginning of the numerous upgrades Chevy has added to its iconic muscle car for the 2020 model year.

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 tires.

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 and packages.

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.
