The Corvette Stingray will come with a 6.2-liter V8 engine,
putting out a muscular 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. It can shut down
up to four of its cylinders when they’re not needed to save fuel, like the
engine on the previous Stingray. That’s a function you won’t find on most
The engine will be mounted to an eight-speed dual-clutch
automatic transmission. No manual transmission is available, but the automatic
does offer paddle shifters mounted to the steering wheel for greater driver
influence over the shifting.
You can add the Z71 Performance Package to your Stingray for
a boost in acceleration, and there are five drive modes to choose from for
different driving conditions: Weather, Track, Sport, Tour, and MyMode.
Other firsts we’ll see in the 2020 Stingray are animated
turn signals in the taillamps, hidden door handles, and hidden releases for the
hood and engine hatch. This engine hatch, which covers the engine that sits in
the middle of the Corvette, is made of a sheet of clear glass, so the engine is
proudly visible beneath it.
When the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is available, you’ll be able to buy it from Clements Chevrolet Cadillac, along with the other 2020 Corvette versions.
There’s no doubt about it, SUVs are amongst the most popular and best-selling vehicles on the road today.

The all-new 2020 XT6 will offer impressive comfort and
refinement even with the entire family on board for an extended drive. The
spacious cabin offers plenty of room for everyone to stretch their legs while
authentic exotic wood accents, leather appointments, and available chassis
damping control technology transform each outing into a relaxing getaway.
Performance and comfort should go hand-in-hand, which is
why the 2020 XT6 will come equipped with a potent 3.6-liter V6 engine capable
of an impressive 310 horsepower and 271 lb-ft of torque. An additional
available Sport Control twin-cloth AWD System enhances performance further,
offering optimal stability and traction in difficult conditions.
The 2020 XT6 will be packed with available driver
assistance and safety technologies that let you drive with total confidence.
Available features like HD Rear Vision Camera, Forward Collision Alert, Automatic
Emergency Braking, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert all work in tandem to keep you
safe and securely on your way.

Now the automaker is getting ready to make good on an their teasing in the form of the all-new 2020 Corvette C8, the next step in a long line of iconic performance vehicles.
While we’ll have to wait until the official unveiling in

the most exciting speculations regard just how potent that mid-engine will be.
It’s likely that the standard engine will be a 6.2-liter V8 capable of around

horsepower. Even more rumors point to a likely twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8 capable
of an astonishing 850 horsepower.
The 2020 Corvette C8 is slated to make its highly-anticipated debut in Orange County, California on July 18 of this year, meaning a half century of excitement and expectation is just about to reach fever pitch. We expect production to begin late 2019, with customer vehicles reaching completion in early- or mid-2020.
