Updated: We just got a look at the order guide. Updates in bold. For decades, the mid-engine Corvette was nothing but a rumor — and a dream. But last week, Chevy took the wraps off the revolutionary version of its iconic sports car. And now, you can build your perfect version of the 2020 Corvette Stingray using the online configurator.
Buckle up because there are a lot of choices to make! Also remember to be patient, because most every gearhead in the world is on this site right now, so it’s running a little slow! Right now, you can select the exterior color, exterior accents, interior colors, seats, and wheels.
At this point, no pricing is available, but we do know the base model will list for less than 60k. Here’s what you’ll get on the base 1LT model: 12-inch digital dash, 8-inch infotainment screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, power tilt and telescoping steering wheel, mechanical limited-slip differential, 19-inch front wheels, 20-inch rear wheels, heated power-adjustable mirrors, power tilt, telescoping wheel, and key-less entry. Not bad right?
Step up to the 2LT, and you add: 10-way adjustable, heated and cooled power seats, heated steering wheel, 14-speaker Bose audio, heads up display, Performance Data Recorder, navigation, wireless charging, ten-way adjustable, heated and cooled power seats, and a heated steering wheel.
The biggest adds to the LT3 models are the large number of interior color options, and GT2 seats with Napa leather.
Along with familiar colors like red, black, white, and silver, there are are a couple of new options we’re excited about. Sebring Orange will appeal to those who love to stand out, and at the reveal event, we were really taken with Zeus Bronze Metallic. It’s honestly not a color we expected to see on the new Corvette — and it looks fantastic.
Buyers will also be able to choose whether the targa top is body-colored, clear, or carbon fiber, and select from four different brake caliper options, including black, yellow, and two different reds. Six different wheel options will be available to complement the finishes — and we really dig the Accessory Black Tridents. There are also a bevy of exterior accents on the site, including visible carbon fiber mirrors, grille inserts, and side skirts.
Of course, racing stripes — in three colors — are on the menu too.
Like previous Corvettes, the interiors choices will reflect the 1LT, 2LT, and 3LT trim levels. All of them look fantastic, with the top-spec 3LT offering a whopping 13 different color combos. As far as seats go, three different styles will be available, GT1, GT2, and Competition. The happy medium is likely the GT2, as it’s got a little more flash than the standard chairs, but isn’t as aggressively bolstered as the race-ready Competitions look.
As far as pricing goes, the big question is what the Z51 Performance package will run. Because while it comes with beefy brakes, tuned suspension bits, a performance exhaust, an electronic limited slip differential, improved cooling, and a big rear wing, it’s the option that’ll allow the Stingray to make the sprint to 60 in less than three seconds.
So we’re curious about how much it’ll add to the cost of entry. But don’t worry, as soon as we know, you will too.
