Back in September we brought you the story of two brothers from Canada who road-tripped 11 hours just to see the 2020 Corvette as it made a visit to Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. You know you have Corvette Fever when you’ve journeyed a considerable distance just to see a new Corvette.
These two brothers have been making some pretty quality videos on YouTube under the name of the Daily Downshift and it looks like their Corvette dreams have come true as they have a new 2020 Corvette Stingray parked in their garage.
Unlike most reviews and the official content you’ve seen from Chevrolet, this 2020 Corvette is a base 1LT model that MSRPs for $59,995. Those upper-level Stingrays can go for upwards of $100,000 and the car we test drove out in Las Vegas back in February had an MSRP of $90K.
We know you get a hell of a lot of performance for the $60,000 with 490-hp from the LT2 and a top speed of 194 mph, as well as some very cool technology with the various Driving Modes that include the programmable Z-Mode and MyMode selections. But the real question is what don’t you get with the 1LT. Considering that the next upgrade in trim levels adds $7,300 to the price, it’s a great topic for those budget-minded Corvette buyers and first time Corvette owners that may not want or need all those extras.
From the Daily Downshift via YouTube:
Hey everyone, welcome back to daily downshift. Today we’re doing an in-depth review of the base model Corvette C8. This is a non Z51 model with the 1LT trim level and features little to no additional options. We show you around the car and point out all standard features on the base model. Additionally, we reveal missing options not available on the $59,995 version of the car. Enjoy the video and leave us some feedback!
Here at Daily Downshift we’re committed to uploading the latest car news, vehicle comparisons and entertaining automotive vlogs.
As someone that has spent some time in the seat of a 3LT Stingray Z51 Coupe, I can tell you that the 2LT is the way to take your Corvette ownership to the next level if you can swing the extra dollars. And if you can’t, rob a bank because the 2LT offers the Rearview Camera Mirror, all the safety equipment, Head-Up Display, Heated and Cooled Seats, the premium 14-speaker Bose audio upgrade, and of course, power-folding mirrors.
