The C8 Corvette has racked up multiple accolades, including:
Motor Trend Car of the Year
“The redefined Chevrolet Corvette Stingray won the 2020 Motor Trend Car of the Year award, earning the mid-engine masterpiece a top spot among the best vehicles the world has to offer. Much of the credit is due to the quick-shifting eight-speed TREMEC dual-clutch transmission.”
Detroit Free Press Car of the Year: 2020 Chevrolet Corvette delivers on decades of promises.
“After countless false starts, the mid-engined ‘Vette arrived as a 2020 model. If possible, it’s better than those who dreamt of it could have expected.”
