2020 Corvette Stingary is Capable of Receiving Over-the-Air Updates

Some folks might be delaying the purchase of the 2020 Corvette Stingray, fearing that subsequent models might have major improvements that would make their first-year C8s obsolete.

While there may well be some options that become available during the eighth-generation’s run and require actual physical changes to the car’s inner workings, it’s good to know that the new Corvette’s Global B electrical architecture will allow over-the-air updates to software, without actually bringing the car to the dealership for the work – similar to the way Teslas have been doing with an active internet connection.

That Global B architecture is being unveiled on the 2020 Corvette and the 2020 Cadillac CT5 but will eventually be offered on many of GM’s future models by 2023. Mary Barra during the company’s second-quarter earnings call last month.

“We’ve recently revealed a new digital vehicle platform that will fully integrate our electric propulsion systems, cybersecurity protections, advanced active safety systems, and Super Cruise technology. This platform also enables more systems in the vehicle to receive over-the-air updates, including telematics, chassis controls and more,” Barra stated during the call. “This will deliver value and convenience to our customers. Following its debut on the Cadillac CT5 and the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, it will expand to most of our global lineup by 2023.”

No word yet on whether these updates will come at a cost to owners, but regardless, it’s nice to know that a 2020 Corvette will apparently be able to take advantage of the many improvements likely made by GM engineers in the coming years.
