4. How Does it Drive?
Sure, the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette looks nice, but how does it drive?
Pretty darn well.
Whatever capabilities you could want from a sports vehicle, you’ll get this beast. Weighted steering? Nearly silent engine? Smooth transmission? Expertly tuned chassis? You’ve got all that and more for a truly superior ride.
3. What’s Under the Hood?
What’s powering this refined vehicle, anyway?
The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette comes standard with a 6.2L V8 engine paired with an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission. This vehicle is capable of producing up to 495 HP and 470 lb-ft of torque when you add either the Z51 Performance Package or Performance exhaust.
This upgrade also means you’ll be able to go from zero to sixty in under 3 seconds. For reference, that’s even faster than the 2020 Porsche 911. So, if you’ve got a need for speed, the Stingray has you covered.
2. Safety Features to Complete the Package
Chevrolet takes safety first seriously. That’s why the 2020 Stingray is full to the brim with standard safety features like rear cross-traffic alert, rear park assist, side blind-zone alert, Teen Driver features, all-speed traction control, active handling stability, OnStar capability, and more. That’s right: you don’t have to pay extra for any of these safety features.
If you do choose to add safety features, you can opt for performance traction management, a highway safety kit, a tire pressure monitor, and a first aid kit.
