    2020 Chevrolet Corvette Order Guide Reveals LT2 Engine, Z51 Performance Package

    As opposed to the LT1 in the C7, the LT2 in the mid-engine Corvette is expected to develop in the ballpark of 500 horsepower if the Z51 Performance Package is specified. Customers are also offered two options for the rear-axle ratio, either 3.62 or 3.80 gearing. There’s no manual option at all, only an eight-speed transmission with a dual-clutch configuration (RPO code M1L).

    Magnetic Selective Ride Control, 19- and 20-inch aluminum wheels wrapped in 245/35 and 305/30 tires, Competition Sport Bucket seats or GT2 Body Contoured seats, there’s a lot to like about the C8. In addition to multiple colors for the brake calipers, customers can also opt for three stripe packages: Carbon Flash, Sterling Silver, and Midnight Silver.

    As far as the roof is concerned, the order guide reveals plenty of options. From the Dual Roof Package to the Visible Carbon Fiber Removable Roof Panels and Transparent Removable Roof Panel, there’s something in there for anyone who wishes to get into the Corvette owner’s club.

    corvette forum has gone gaga over this. Some question if it is real or not. If real, it means C8 may be closer than anyone thinks.

    C8 z51 with mrc , dct, npp sounds like a hell of a sports car choice.

    So it finally happened. No stick.

    The LT2 was rumored to be in the refreshed '19 Camaro.

    That would be really shocking. 21.9% of the 2018 MY Corvette had a manual. Granted it was only 2123 cars. The most shocking thing? That over HALF of all Corvettes made last year were 1LT and 2LT cars. They are going to be chasing away half their volume if they move the needle into higher territory. I hope we're ready for the triple digit sales slide.

    Is there any possibility that GM will sell C7 and C8 models as new vehicles simultaneously once the latter is released? Perhaps with C7 as "Stingray Classic" or "Stingray Limited"?

    I have not really thought about that but it's a solid point.

    Also, REALLY surprised by this, but only 88 people took part in museum delivery.

    Is the video rear-view mirror new for the Corvette or has it been available before?
    Sometimes doing it all isn't enough.

    Pretty sure the video rear-view mirror is a very new thing for GM. I remember reading somewhere that NHTSA was against these things for awhile, so GM had to make it so it was a regular mirror that became a camera mirror by flipping that "dimmer" flap that we are use to doing. I read about it on an article for the new Sierra AT4, I believe.
