GM Confirms 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 and Announces its Release Date

14 April 2019

The next-generation C8 Corvette has finally been confirmed by Chevrolet to be mid-engined, ending a 65-year tradition of the front-engined sports vehicle. Assuming Chevrolet isn't auctioning some future build, the Northeast sale is three weeks before the reveal date for the C8 Corvette. According to vehicle and Driver, the first Corvette model to debut will be the "base" C8 Stingray, powered by a revised version of the current model's 6.2-litre V8.

You can check out Chevrolet.com for the latest official information. Also, GM chairperson and CEO Mary Barra along with Tadge Juechter took a prototype to a charity event in NY after the announcement with the auto heavily camouflaged, but giving a glimpse into what's in store.

This first Corvette C8 model we will see in July is the base Corvette Stingray, which will kick off the lineup.

We believe the upcoming high-performance versions will use an all-new engine.

We've known for some time now, that the C8 Corvette will break tradition and go for a dual-clutch transmission instead of a manual or an automatic.

After years of speculation, spy shots and insider rumors from General Motors, the automotive giant has finally confirmed what we already knew: the mythical mid-engined Corvette will soon be upon us.

Following the initial launch, Chevrolet is expected to bring out a range of hardcore versions over the coming years, including a Z06 and ZR1, along with a flagship "Zora" that will debut hybrid technology for the nameplate.

We hear Chevrolet will hold the line on pricing for the 2020 Corvette, despite its monumental philosophical shift and abundance of new technology.
