Take a look inside the new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray in this extensive walk-around video.
This is probably the best look we have of the new Corvette yet. Schumacher Chevrolet, a dealer with locations all over New York, was one of the many stops that GM is making as they take the 2020 Stingray on a tour of America. The mobile showroom is letting everyone get a good look at the upcoming mid-engine Corvette to entice them to order one once production starts up sometime this winter.
For us, the benefit is seeing the 2020 Corvette in even greater detail than ever before.
This particular model we see here is almost fully loaded, in bright orange paint, and with the Z51 performance pack installed. That boosts the LT2 V8 engine to its maximum power of 495 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. Power goes to the rear wheels through an 8-speed DCT.
We get a great look at the LT2 engine with the rear hatch open, allowing us to see the heat shielding, engine block cover, and even the carbon fiber side braces that keep the vibrations to a minimum. Both the oil and coolant cap is clearly visible on the passenger side just next to the fender, and you can even see the suspension tower struts just before the trunk.
The trunk is occupied by the Corvette’s roof panel, but you get the impression that this thing has plenty of storage if the roof were in place. Even more storage is available with the frunk which can easily contain a carry-on case of luggage. You also get a peek at where the wiper fluid cap is under the hood.
Our gracious cameraman also gets inside the C8 ‘Vette’s cockpit to give a tour of the driver-centric cabin. Everything gets a closeup, from the cupholders to the climate control bar that bisects the driver and passenger. Even the vents get showcased, proving how they’re almost invisible thanks to how thin they are.
The passenger side seems almost cramped in comparison to the driver’s seat, but it appears that’s mostly due to the wall formed by the climate control panel. There’s still plenty of legroom for the Corvette’s single passenger.
Keep an eye out for GM’s roaming showroom at a Chevy dealer near you.
