The cream rises to the top, so it is said.

In the case of the automotive world, that has certainly been the case for the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette.

Chevy’s first attempt at a mid-engine Corvette has taken the United States – and the world – by storm, and it’s shown up in the number of awards the 2020 Stingray has earned already.

In fact, the editors at Kelley Blue Book say the new Stingray is one of its 10 most awarded cars of 2020.

“When it was unveiled, the all-new mid-engine 2020 Chevrolet Corvette nearly broke the internet,” KBB writer Allyson Harwood says. “Its supercar styling and power numbers were impressive, but its incredible resale value data and bargain starting price make the Corvette far more than just an excellent sports car.”

With a top speed of 194 miles per hour and a 0 to 60 time of less than 3 seconds, the Corvette ranks among the fastest cars in the world thanks to its 495 horsepower engine that provides 470 lb-ft of torque.

Among the awards earned by the 2020 Stingray are MotorTrend Car of the Year, 2020 North American Car of the Year, and Wards Auto 10 Best Award for the interior.

The Corvette was also chosen as the Detroit Free Press Car of the Year, a 2020 Car and Driver 10Best, and a 2020 Edmunds Top Rated Award winner in the sports car category.

Kelley Blue Book also got in on the action, giving the Corvette a 2020 KBB.com Best Resale Value award.

  1. Not sold on the body still yet. Still think the C7 Z06 and Grand Sport is a better looking car. With that said, I’m still not surprised of all the awards the C8 is receiving. The mid engine crowd loves the car. Even those that drive mid engine super cars from across the pond. Myself I’m old school, still prefer the front engine car.

  2. John R. – You are entitled to your opinion. With the C7 actually being a very good looking car and one of the best looking Corvettes in the Z06 variety, only in 2004 did I give the Corvette a second look as a new car. I couldn’t really afford it then. Fast forward to 2019. I saw the new Corvette and then read about its technology. I became fascinated with the car and its looks were amazing to me. This “looked,” like a Corvette to me and at the same time was so good looking and had so many upgrades that I spent the next 7 or so months finding everything I could find on the internet, ultimately resulting in my putting a C8 in my garage with a bit of God, a bit of luck, and a bit of hard work making it all possible. Had the car looked like the C7 Z06, I wouldn’t have given the car any serious consideration in terms of owning one. Take that for what its worth. I also was a Mustang convert. Apparently Tadge and the team knew what they were doing. AF

  3. Love the C8, it’s heads above the C7 in exterior appeal. People point and take pics and videos of this car, not to mention it’s interior refinement takes it to another level.
