The American Automobile manufacturer Chevrolet has manufactured the Chevrolet Corvette C8. The eighth generation of the Corvette Sports is the Chevrolet Corvette C8. Its first mid-engine differs from the traditional front-engine design. The announcement of the C8 took place in April 2019. Moreover, the coupe officially entered the market on July 18, 2019. This coupe’s debut had taken place in Tustin, California. The convertible’s debut had taken place in October 2019, at a media event at the Kennedy Space Center. The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray C8 2020 is also famous in Dubai, UAE.
Trim levels and options of the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray C8
1LT, 2LT, and 3LT are the three trim levels that are currently available. The three suspension setups FE1, FE3, and FE4 augment the three trim levels. This corresponds with the two Z51 Performance packages. In addition to this, there is also the availability of three-seat options. The three-seat options include GT1, GT2, and Competition Sport. The leather, microsuede, or performance textile with carbon fiber or aluminum trims cushions the car’s interior. In addition to a higher resolution camera, there is a new interface that has upgraded the Performance Data Recorder. The Chevrolet Corvette’s virtual camera mirror is optional. This assists in projecting the video from the backup camera onto the rearview mirror.
The Stingray is using a new version of the LS-based GM small-block engine. This engine comes from the C7 Stingray’s LT1. The GM small-block engine is now called the LT2. The Company has rated the new 6.2 L V8 at 490 hp and 6,450 rpm. It has rated the 465 lb⋅ft (630 N⋅m) of torque at 5,150 rpm. Therefore, this is an improvement of 40 hp (30 kW; 41 PS) and 10 lb⋅ft (14 N⋅m) over the outgoing C7 Corvette Stingray. Moreover, the engine makes use of a dry-sump lubrication system. Similar to the C7, the C8 features Active Fuel Management or cylinder deactivation. This is used when the car faces low-load scenarios such as highway cruising.
The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray’s engine consists of two radiators. The engine incorporates one radiator on each side in the front. The Z51 package of the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray includes a third radiator, and a water-to-water and water-to-oil radiator on the rear driver’s side. This assists in cooling both engine oil and transmission lubricant. In addition to this, it takes air in through the rear quarter panel opening.
The car consists of an optional NPP sport exhaust system that brings the total power output to 495 hp (369 kW; 502 PS) and torque to 470 lb⋅ft (637 N⋅m). Chevrolet has claimed that the C8 can accelerate to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 2.9 seconds with the optional Z51 package.
Transmission of the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
Tremec has made the 8-speed dual-clutch automated transmission. The Stingray only comes with this 8-speed dual-clutch automated transmission, along with paddle shifters on the steering wheel. The manual transmission option is not available in this car. Since there was no customer demand, the company had called off the option of the manual transmission.
The Car’s Suspension
The base model of the Stingray features the unequal length double wishbone suspension at the front and rear axles. This suspension is made from forged aluminum. It is standard for all four wheels to feature the Monotube shock absorbers. The car can feature a front-axle lifting height-adjustable suspension system. This suspension system can add 2 in (40 mm) of ground clearance at speeds under 25 mph (40 km/h).
Moreover, the Z51 package adds a performance-tuned adjustable suspension with higher front and rear spring rates and firmer dampers. The front shocks and the rear shocks on vehicles have threaded spring seats. This helps in allowing adjustment of the preload on the coil springs. In addition to this, you can adjust the spring seat approximately by 20 mm (0.8 in) up or down from the nominal position.
All trims and levels are also having an available option of Magnetic Selective Ride Control. The Magnetic Selective Ride Control™ includes Performance Traction Management and electronic limited-slip differential (eLSD) on Z51 equipped Corvettes.
Chevrolet Corvette Stingray’s Wheels
The Stingray features 19 inches (48 cm) (front) and 20 inches (51 cm) (rear) alloy wheels. In addition to this, the car also consists of Michelin Pilot Sport ALS tires and Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires. The base models use all-season tires for better grip. The tire’s exact dimensions are 245/35ZR-19 at the front and 305/30ZR-20 at the rear. The standard brakes come with diameters of 12.6 in (320 mm) at the front and 13.6 in (345 mm) at the rear. These brakes are four-piston Brembo ventilated discs. You will get advance and enlarged brakes in the Z51 package. These brakes measure 13.3 in 338 mm at the front and 13.8 in 351 mm at the rear.
The technology of the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
The Chevrolet Corvette C8 Stingray features an 8-inch infotainment screen in a driver-centric cockpit. This screen is standard with Chevrolet’s Infotainment 3 Plus system. This car’s standard features consist of Bluetooth connectivity, 4G hotspot, and both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Moreover, the higher trims consist of a 14 speaker Bose audio system and navigation options. In addition to this, there are more technical features available. The additional features consist of a performance data recorder package for 2LT and 3LT trim levels. It also has a camera-based rear view mirror. The 2020 Corvette was the first year Chevrolet had introduced over the air updates to the Corvette lineup in the year 2020. This had marked the first year of the updates. Chevrolet has used this capability in resolving a front trunk recall for the 2020 Corvettes.
