2020 Chevrolet Corvette – what it would offer?

The manufacturer has not presented 2020 Chevrolet Corvette yet but we can see it tested more often and we can now see its details and how it would look even though we do not know the details and specifics.

Prototypes

The manufacturer has prepared prototypes for C8 Corvette and they should come out as 2020 models, at least the basic model. Despite 2019 was expected as the launching year, that year saw the release of C7 ZR1. The first Corvette, C7, saw its debut in 2014.

Shots & Design

All the known information about 2020 Chevrolet Corvette have been known from the spy photos that become available from time to time. They actually tell us that the unit would have a similar design to C7 one, but that its stance would be a bit lower and wider. As far as we can see, the vertical doors would not be included but the incorporation of a short front overhang is expected. It may happen that the glass part would be added so that the engine would be partially seen. It has also been noticed that the unit also has rear-facing cameras. In addition to this, it seems as if the manufacturer has included dual-caliper brakes as well.

Power

As far as the base is concerned, it is expected that it would be an aluminum one, as well in C7. There have been a lot of speculations regarding the potential engine, and the most reliable ones specify that the manufacturer would use a 6.2-liter engine, a V8 one, that would have the capacity of 500 horsepower. Apart from this one, most predictions also mention the variant that would have a 5.5-liter V8 engine that would be capable of providing 600 horsepower. It is also possible that the manufacturer would provide the version with twin-turbocharging.

Hybrid

It has not been expected, but a hybrid version would be also a valid possibility. It would have an electric engine and there are even some predictions that it would be capable of providing 1,000hp when combined with the twin-turbo engine.

Mid-engines

The biggest change in 8 in comparison to previous models, i.e. C7 is that the manufacturer has decided to go for a mid-engine.

Price

As far as the pricing is concerned, we can only give estimations on the basis of what we know. It is expected that C8 would be a bit more expensive than C7 (priced at 60K) and that its base price would be put at about $80K. The justification for this price comes from the accessories used and nicer design. It should be also noted that this model would also have a bit of an exotic note.

Production

As always, the production of this model would happen in Bowling Green, Kentucky, the USA. It should be also mentioned that General Motors also make improvements in the factory in order to make it ready for the production of this car. Namely, 700 million USD has been spent on modernizing the plant.
