Engine Chevrolet Corvette confirmed for 2020, will debut July 18

Chevrolet tweeted a teaser of the eighth-generation Corvette on Thursday, and the prototype was actually driven through NY with General Motors CEO Mary Barra riding shotgun.

We've seen countless spy photos of mid-engined prototypes and heard plenty of rumours regarding what form the new auto will take, and from the attached images of the camouflaged vehicle, we can see the new Corvette will indeed be mid-engined.

Chevrolet paraded the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette along the streets of New York City this week, and the long-slung two-seater was still wearing camouflage.

The new Corvette C8 makes its debut July 18, 2019, and will go on sale by the end of the year. Assuming Chevrolet isn't auctioning some future build, the Northeast sale is three weeks before the reveal date for the C8 Corvette.


The general consensus of speculation surrounding the vehicle has been that the base Corvette will be powered by a naturally aspirated V8 with around 500 hp and not cost much more than the current $56,990 Stingray, while higher performance models could feature turbocharged or supercharged engines and possibly an all-wheel-drive hybrid drivetrain offering as much as 1,000 hp. As for exactly what engine will reside amidships, that's still unknown, but rumors have suggested a 520-horsepower V8 will be on offer.

Multiple high-performance variants are set to follow in quick succession, including Z06, ZR1, and a range-topping hybrid that may use the Zora name.

Last we heard, the midengine Corvette was delayed due to its electrical system not being up to snuff.
