As we get ready to watch the Corvette Team’s presentation on Friday afternoon via the Virtual NCM Bash Event, one of the subjects I am sure we will be hearing about are these new accessories coming to the 2020 Corvette. Chevrolet dropped the news last week to dealers, but the accessories news was overlooked as we also received the dates for the start of 2020 Convertibles (July 20th) and the start of the 2021 model year (November 2020).
Since that news dropped last week, we’ve come across the full 2020 Corvette update offered to dealers that show some of the new accessories and their planned availability.
New to the C8 Accessories line-up are these Contoured Cargo Area Liners (CAV) and Contoured Black Floor Liners (RIA) that both feature Corvette Racing’s ‘Jake’ logo in the design. These have an expected availability for the Second Quarter 2020 and we are expecting the prices for both liners to be revealed soon.
Also new for the 2020 Corvette during 2nd Quarter will be a Premium Indoor Car Cover that features the graphics of a fully-rendered C8.R race car (WKR). These custom covers from Covercraft were big sellers for Genuine Corvette Accessories during the C7 era and I think they will very well with the C8s. Previously the C7 versions sold for $1,295 and we can expect the pricing to be at a similar price point.
Finally, Chevrolet wants to help you protect your expensive wheels and so they are offering an Ultra High-Security Week Lock (SQU).
In 3rd Quarter, Chevrolet is expecting to have many of its various exterior aero effects available, but unfortunately, the Visible Carbon Flash Ground Effects Kit (5VM) and the High Wing Spoiler (5ZZ/5ZU) are no longer available due to overwhelming customer demand that exceeded forecasts. What is expected to be available includes:
- Carbon Fiber Ground Effects Kit in Painted Carbon Flash (5W8)
- Carbon Fiber Rocker Panel Extensions in Painted Carbon Flash (SJI)
- Visible Carbon Fiber Rocker Panel Extensions (S6S)
- Ground Effects Kit, Black, Includes rockers and front splitter (5V7)
