It is finally here, after what feels like years of seeing camouflaged 2020 Chevrolet Corvette’s and even one with its release date on the side, it finally has been revealed.
While not everyone may like it, the Corvette has made the switch to a mid-engine layout. This means that the engine sits behind the driver, instead of in front of it. Think the Porsche 911 or many of the Ferraris.
The thought behind this, was that Chevrolet had maxed out what could be done with the front engine layout, and needed to put it behind the driver to allow for a better weight distribution.
Because of this switch, the Corvette now has some very impressive specs. That includes the price, which should be starting at around $60,000. This number is great, especially when compared to it’s competitors.
For the key takeaway information of the new Mid-Engine 2020 Chevrolet Corvette’s launch, take a look below!
- 6.2 liter LT2 V8 engine
- 495 horsepower. Currently the 2019 Corvette Stingray boasts 460 HP.
- 470 Torque. Currently the 2019 model has 465.
- Dual clutch transmission
- Available magnetic ride suspension.
- Front lift. This allows for you to raise the front end to get over bumps.
- 6 different modes. Tour, sport, track and weather consist of the standard modes. My mode, and z- mode are more configurable to each owner.
- Driver centric interior. Inside of the Corvette, everything points towards the driver, making it feel more like a jet than a car.
- 9 different interior colors.
- 12 inch diagonal drivers display.
- 12 color options. Including the bright Accelerate Yellow.
- 6 different wheel styles.
- Many many accent options. This includes engine cover styles, that can be seen from outside of the vehicle.
- 3 trim levels. 1LT, 2LT, and 3LT.
- 6 seat belt colors.

With so many options, you might want to build up your Corvette here.
With the Corvette finally being announced, and there are some seriously impressive specifications.
Now that this, and the Supra are finally both announced, there are finally some great new sports cars on the horizon.
The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette is now no longer going to be a front engine, and is instead of now a mid-engine. I believe this will definitely appeal to a younger crowd that wants a Ferrari, but may not be able to afford it.
