2020 CORVETTE C8 STINGRAY Z51: FIRST DRIVE

What it does have is the ability to show Rolls-Royce how to tune a chassis: the new Vette genuinely rides like full-size luxury car. No car with sporting intention this side of McLaren’s Super Series of cars with trick hydraulic suspension even comes close to the suppleness of the Corvette.

Astonishing magnetorheological-damper ride quality aside, the C8’s driving experience is a radical departure from previous Vettes because its controls are delicate. The electrically assisted steering is light, the shift paddles don’t require much effort from your fingers, and the (brake-by-wire) left pedal won’t stress your thigh muscles. The experience is more Ferrari than C7, which was a big brute of a thing that had a heavy clutch, a shifter that could sprain a limp wrist, and enough driveline lash to remind you what the gritty side of Detroit still looks like.

WHAT DOES THE STRIKE MEAN FOR 2020 CHEVROLET CORVETTE C8?

Are production delays possible?

Now entering its 10th day, the strike initiated by General Motors’ 50,000 factory employees across the US is causing the automaker to lose an estimated $50 million a day. Some estimates have that figure as high as $100 million. To pressure the United Auto Workers to make a deal, GM last week announced it will no longer pay for health insurance for striking workers. This means the UAW is now responsible for health benefits. Although progress is reportedly being made in negotiations between the two sides, a breakthrough has yet to happen. All the while, no new American-made GM vehicles are rolling off assembly lines but the all-new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, at least so far, remains unaffected.

Corvette C8 Makes the Semifinalist List for 2020 Car of the Year

The Chevrolet Corvette C8 is on its way to potentially winning the 2020 North American Car of the Year award. The model has placed on the semifinalist list for this award along with foreign rival brands such as Volkswagen and BMW

The award

If you’re not familiar with this accolade, it’s an award given to the highest-rated vehicles in the car, utility vehicle, and truck categories. The winners of the 2020 awards will be announced in January at the North American International Auto Show. 50 judges selected from prestigious online, print, broadcast, and radio media outlets from the U.S. and Canada will evaluate the contenders to determine which three models will win the awards.

The competitive Corvette C8

The C8 Corvette Stingray is definitely deserving of the 2020 Car of the Year title, as GM Authority’s Jonathan Lopez points out. It’s one of the most anticipated sports cars to hit the market in a long time and is a stunning specimen of the new mid-engine platform that Chevy introduced specifically for this model.

More about the new Corvette

The Corvette C8 has already endeared itself to Chevy fans for a variety of reasons. For starters, the new mid-engine layout of the vehicle allows it to have a smaller extra trunk in the front. This space has the volume to accommodate a laptop and carry-on bag. It has a unique GPS-enabled tech feature that automatically lifts the vehicle’s nose when it reaches its destination, for a flashy entrance to any party or work function.

The model is also available in a variety of trendy, eye-catching exterior colors from Rapid Blue and Sebring Orange to Torch Red and Accelerate Yellow. And you can select from six different interior color themes in the cabin, for added flair.

The crowning trait of the C8 is its ability to go from a standstill to 60 mph in less than 3 seconds. The LT2 6.2-liter V8 engine yields 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, for an exhilarating ride quality. Chevy also offers a Z51 Performance Package, which includes perks like Magnetic Ride Control 4.0, bigger brake rotors, and a shorter axle ratio for more track-ready driving dynamics.
