All About the 2020 Chevy Corvette
The Chevy Corvette is an iconic car, but it is going through some changes. This vehicle is soon to be a midengined performance car. Also, it will have some great new performance features to watch out for. Learn more about this below.
According to Car and Driver, “Any all-new Corvette is significant. The really big fuss is that this one, the eighth generation (C8), has its engine behind the passengers for the first time in Corvette history. It's mid-engined, like a Ferrari F8 Tributo or a McLaren 720S. While that change is obvious, there are subtler changes that are nearly as heretical.”
The engine that can be found in the middle of the Corvette is a 6.2-liter V8 engine that produces 495-horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. However, the engine is not the only aspect important to the performance. This vehicle also has a Z51 performance package. With this performance package, the new 2020 Corvette is supposed to go from zero to 60 miles per hour in just 3.0 seconds. This could make the 2020 Chevy Corvette the fastest Corvette yet. Also, people are buzzing about another performance feature in the new Chevy Corvette called Z mode.
Autoblog describes the Chevy Corvette’s new Z mode, “The silver switch marked with a Z activates (surprise!) “Z mode.” If you’re familiar with BMW’s M switches on the steering wheel of M cars, this functions similarly to that. Chevy says it’ll put the car into a hybrid between Sport and Track mode, but the owner can customize the mode to make it exactly what they want it to be. One press of the button will load up your preset powertrain, steering, suspension, brake and exhaust modes. You can then select between a few options within each of those categories, including Tour, Sport and Track.”
While the Chevy Corvette is seeing some significant changes for 2020, these changes could make it more powerful than ever. The 2020 Chevy Corvette will definitely be a vehicle worth waiting for. Be on the lookout for the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 coming your way soon, and get ready to try out the new Z mode for yourself.
