We’ll cover everything we know so far about the new mid-engine Corvette pricing, performance features, interior, and more, down below!

Thrilling C8 Performance

It should come as no surprise that the new mid-engine Corvette continues the Vette legacy, delivering legendary performance with an all-new 6.2L LT2 V8 engine. Designed to sit lower for better handling on tracks and highways, it features a standard dry-sump system to enhance performance when g-forces are high, as well as Continuously Variable Valve Timing for further heightened performance. Here are the detailed specs for the LT2 V8 engine:

  • 495 hp
  • 470 lb-ft of torque
  • Top speed of 194 mph
  • Speculated 0 – 60 in under three seconds

What’s Inside the C8 Corvette Interior?

The C8 Corvette interior boasts a lowered instrument panel and steering wheel, made possible by the mid-engine that is situated at the rear of the vehicle instead of at the front. Every control is placed just so, keeping the driver in mind all along the way. There are three seating combinations available for the C8 Corvette interior, each boasting sport-focused details:

  • GT1 – Standard on the 1LT and 2LT trims, the GT1 seats are wrapped in luxurious Mulan leather.
  • GT2 – Standard on the 3LT and available on the 2LT, the GT2 seats feature a carbon fiber trim plus a seatback halo. High-end Napa leather is available.
  • Competition Sport – You’ll be racetrack-ready with the Competition Sport seats. They feature performance textile that is intuitively placed in the areas that experience the most wear and tear, ensuring your seats look like new for years to come.

Distinctive Styling

Don’t be surprised if you turn a few heads in the new Corvette 2020 model. With the new mid-engine design, visibility and responsiveness are enhanced. Johns Creek drivers will find the front cargo area to be surprisingly spacious – it can fit an airline-size overhead bag, while the trunk offers additional space when needed.
