MotorTrend Names Chevy Corvette Stingray 2020 Car of the Year

January 22nd, 2020 by

Late last year, the Chevy Corvette Stingray, now a mid-engine Corvette (the first of its kind), earned the 2020 MotorTrend Car of the Year award. This marks the third time that a Corvette model has grabbed this coveted title. Previous Corvette models to have earned this award hailed from the 1984 and 1998 model years.

The new, mid-engine Corvette Stingray is the fastest and most powerful entry-level production Corvette to date. When equipped with the Z51 Performance Package and powered by the advanced 6.2-liter Small Block V8 LT2 engine, the 2020 Corvette Stingray can launch from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds and unleashes a hellish 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque.

“We have been looking forward to the arrival of the mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette for so long, that you’d think there is no way it could live up to the weight of expectations, but the all-new C8 Corvette epitomizes what it means to be MotorTrend’s 2020 Car of the Year,” remarked MotorTrend Editor-in-Chief Edward Loh. “Corvette delivers stunning design and world-class performance, around an exotic mid-ship layout, yet it remains a truly livable grand touring sports car, all at an almost unbelievable price point. Our 2020 Car of the Year is the one that democratizes the supercar — the Chevrolet Corvette.”

Eager to get your hands on the new Chevy Corvette Stingray? You don’t have much longer to wait. Production begins next month at the GM Bowling Green Assembly Plant in Kentucky, and the Corvette will be available here at Graff Chevy shortly thereafter.
