In recent times, the craze for sports cars is rising higher than ever before. Among the handful of models of sports cars that have already swept the market with their own charisma, the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette stands erect as one of the most popular ones. The reason behind its popularity is quite obvious, Chevrolet as a common man’s brand has not kept the price tag of the 2020 Corvette as lofty as its competitors. Hence, the model is seen more often on roads in comparison to others. Then there is its sports car attributes perfectly woven in each of its parts that one can’t but appreciate, after the first drive experience.
When we reached the Lexington Chevrolet dealership showroom to take a glimpse of the newly released 2020 Chevrolet Corvette, its look and feel, tempted us hard to take a test drive as well. We returned with a bunch of exciting experiences with the latest sports car from Chevrolet and in the flow we wanted to let you all know whatever we felt worth sharing.
The Supercar Design
Switched to that uniquely curved mid-engine design, the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette has elevated its performance from a sports car to a supercar. One can see at the first glance itself how Chevrolet makes the engine a major part of its magnificent state-of-the-art design. Then comes the rear hatch styling that conforms to the aerodynamic science, while all other parts including the fastener, bolt, wires, and tubes team up to optimize the effect of its supercar appearance into the numbers of performance ratio.
The 2020 Corvette is primarily built on a structure made of six-piece aluminum giving a special emphasis on a stiff tunnel curved at the center. The experts interpret this design pattern to be the result of clever engineering in order to save weight. Overall, the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette that looks distinctively unique in all its trim levels will not allow your eyes to look anywhere else for a while, once it is at your level of eyesight.
Power of a Sports Car
Chevrolet has engaged a 6.2 L LT2 V8 engine to power the base version of the 2020 Corvette series. To match this robust engine power an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is paired with it that can be electronically controlled. But this transmission can also be shifted manually through the steering wheel paddles, and the drivers love to take that opportunity. At the Lexington Chevrolet dealership showroom, the auto experts explained that this particular transmission sets a low-ratio at the first gear taking the maximum advantage of the power of the V-8 engine, between the 2nd and 6th it allows a close-ratio, while at the 7th and 8th gears the 2020 Corvette delivers its best possible highway fuel economy.
The engineers working at Chevrolet have shown their skills in how to bring out the perfect combination of power and traction when a car is made with a rear-engine design. That is how they acquire an acceleration speed of zero to 60 mph in less than 3.0 seconds, which makes its rivals lag behind in the tracks.
