Corvette Stingray Earns the Title of 2020 North American Car of the Year

The new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray recently received the prestigious 2020 North American Car of the Year award. A jury made up of 50 independent journalists gave this award to the car for having a powerful performance and sophisticated design.

Lauren Fix, North American Car, Utility and Truck of the Year president, said, “The excitement from consumers has been overwhelming. From a journalist’s perspective, this is one of the best-built GM products that exemplifies what it means to be the North American Car of the Year.”

The North American Car, Utility and Truck of the Year Awards recognize the vehicles that exceed in the areas of design, innovation, performance, safety, technology, value and driver satisfaction. The Corvette has now won the North American Car of the Year award three times, having previously received the honor in 1998 for its fifth-generation model and in 2014 for its seventh generation model.

The 2020 mid-engine Corvette is powered by a 6.2-liter V8 engine, which achieves 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. You can also opt for the Z51 Performance Package to optimize performance and enjoy smooth rides.

We at Steve Austin’s Auto Group are excitedly awaiting the release of the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. Visit our dealership to check out the array of other vehicles we have available.
