Chevrolet unveils 2020 midengine Corvette pricing


Chevrolet is taking preorders for the much-anticipated midengine Corvette and has dedicated a “concierge” team to answer customer inquiries about the sports car.

General Motors said Thursday its 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray will start at $59,995. That’s about $4,000 more than its 2019 Corvette, which starts at $55,900. Comparatively, the midengine Porsche 718 Cayman starts at $56,900.

“Most people thought when we moved the Corvette to midengine it would no longer be attainable, but we knew we couldn’t mess with a winning formula, and the 2020 Stingray proves it,” said Brian Sweeney, Chevrolet U.S. vice president.

The “basic” version of the car will start at $59,995; the next trim package, with features including a full-color head-up display and Bose 14-speaker sound system, will start at $67,295; and the top-level trim package, with a lot of leather in the interior, will start at $71,945, GM said. 

Chevy engineers have moved the eighth-generation ‘Vette’s engine from its familiar location under the hood to behind the passengers, over the rear axle. 

With GM’s classic small block V8 engine, a normally aspirated 6.2-liter that produces 495 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque, the car can go from zero to 60 mph in less than 3 seconds.

The gearhead stuff: “We’ve packed a lot of performance into the Corvette Stingray at this price when you consider an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, small block V-8 and engine-mounted dry sump oil system are all standard,” said Tadge Juechter, Corvette executive chief engineer.

GM will start building the 2020 Corvette Stingray goes at GM’s Bowling Green Assembly in late 2019.
