Next Corvette set for July Reveal

Next Corvette set for July Reveal

U.S. publication auto and Driver reports that it has further information not yet released, suggesting there will be an initial model launch later this year with the Corvette Stingray, powered by the same 6.2-litre naturally-aspirated V8 engine found in the C7-generation vehicle, producing around 370kW but renamed "LT2" on account of its new mid-engine location. "The sale of this iconic (and final C7) Corvette will help the foundation continue its good work, and pave the way for the Next Generation Corvette that we will introduce on July 18".

You can check out Chevrolet.com for the latest official information. This particular prototype was being driven by Corvette chief engineer Tadge Juechter with General Motors CEO Mary Bara taking up the co-pilot seat. Corvettes haven't used DOHC engines since the short-lived ZR1 version of the C4 Corvette.

The publication claims the powertrain will bump its power output to around 500hp (373kW), with the engine code to be renamed to "LT2" to signify its new location within the vehicle. A dual-clutch seven-speed automatic gearbox supplied from Tremec is slated to be the only transmission choice-unfortunate news for #savethemanuals diehards like us.

We hear Chevrolet will hold the line on pricing for the 2020 Corvette, despite its monumental philosophical shift and abundance of new technology.

Chevrolet hasn't given much away about the new model, other than it will be officially revealed on July 18. Expect the new Corvette to cost around $62,000 to start, an increase of around $5000 compared to the C7 Stingray's starting price of $56,995.
