On Friday as we were jetting home from California, Jay Leno did a Facebook video live where he walked around the next generation 2020 Corvette Stingray.

Joining Jay from Chevrolet was Corvette engineer Ed Piatek. There is a slight delay when starting the video so hang on a few seconds and it will get going.

Jay does what he does best by offering a running stream of commentary as he talks about the new 2020 Corvette Stingray. In the beginning, Ed gives a couple quick stats about the car:

From a power standpoint, we have a naturally aspirated V8 engine, it’s a Chevy small-block. It makes 495 horsepower, 470 lbs-ft torque with the performance exhaust, and we announced 0-60 times of less than 3 seconds when you get the Z51 package.

Ed also confirms the 2020 Corvette Stingray is the fastest base-engine Corvette ever by quite a substantial margin. He also explains some of the differences for the driver in the mid-engine Corvette vs a front-engine Corvette.

Jay takes some time to open the rear hatch to view the Stingray’s engine compartment and rear storage area and then moves to the interior where he asks about the squared-off design of the Stingray’s steering wheel. Ed tells him that the squared-off top portion of the steering wheel allows you to see the 12-inch digital dash clearly.

Here’s the video from Jay Leno’s Garage:

  1. Interesting on the leg room. Looks easier to get in and out of if you are tall, like my husband. Can’t wait to see/hear pricing.

  2. Keith,
    Between Rick Conti and you I can’t recall being so aware of any “reveal” ever!!! From several weeks out through Thursday and even this weekend, you’ve been on top of every angle I can imagine to cover the C8. The excitement has been phenomenal and now…it’s back to work.
    Thank You for the dedication and effort you put into making this special for all of us.
    God Speed!!!

  3. Just talked to a salesman at the Chevy dealer in Scottsdale, AZ. When I asked what their process is to get on their list, he stated, “$20,000 NON-refundable deposit and $20,000 OVER MSRP”. thinking I must have not heard him correctly, I asked him to repeat it. Same replay. Amazing how one greedy salesman can take away my interest and my potential as a customer.

  4. Dealer gouging for the C8 is ridiculous, just don’t do it. Why would you when there’s dealerships like Coughlin Motors, Pataskala, Ohio with Rick “Corvette” Conti selling C8’s at MSRP (I have No Affiliation). Rick ships Corvette’s across the country too… I’m also aware that there are other Corvette Big Stores selling at MSRP. However, just be aware that the dealers who plan to gouge their C8 customers are laughing all the way to Bank Greed…yes, ridiculous!!!
