GM Social About C7 And C8 Corvette

2020 Chevrolet Corvette confirmed for July 18 debut

2020 Chevrolet Corvette confirmed for July 18 debut

Previewing the reveal, General Motors released a photo showing GM Chairman and CEO Mary Barra standing next to a camouflaged, next-generation Corvette on Thursday in NY.

The next-generation C8 Corvette has finally been confirmed by Chevrolet to be mid-engined, ending a 65-year tradition of the front-engined sports auto.

And General Motors has a big change in the next generation Corvette being revealed July 18.

While the auto has been photographed undergoing road tests for months, it's the first time Chevrolet has confirmed plans for the next-generation of the venerable sports vehicle. However, you can still clearly make out the vehicle's proportions and the huge air intake behind the doors that feeds the mid-mounted V8 engine.

The publication claims the powertrain will bump its power output to around 500hp (373kW), with the engine code to be renamed to "LT2" to signify its new location within the vehicle.

Following the initial launch, Chevrolet is expected to bring out a range of hardcore versions over the coming years, including a Z06 and ZR1, along with a flagship "Zora" that will debut hybrid technology for the nameplate. It's also been reported that at least some trims will get a dual-clutch automatic transmission to replace the current automatic.

We hear Chevrolet will hold the line on pricing for the 2020 Corvette, despite its monumental philosophical shift and abundance of new technology. There's no official on-sale date yet, but given that Chevrolet is already rolling out a "Next-Generation Corvette" page on its consumer website, we feel certain that the order books will open by the end of 2019 at the latest.
