2020 Chevrolet Corvette Rolls off the Line

2020 Chevrolet Corvette | Crivitz, WI

The first 2020 Chevrolet Corvette rolled off the line in early February of this year. Manufactured at the General Motors Bowling Green Assembly plant in Kentucky, the 2020 Corvette has been one of the most anticipated vehicles on the market. With a distinct mid-engine design and exceptional performance, this is one sports car any auto enthusiast can enjoy.

This eighth-generation Stingray is the first ever to offer a mid-engine design, which includes an all-new LT2 V8 engine that’s available through the rear hatch window. There’s a hardtop convertible design to let you enjoy the open air, while redesigned seats are ideal for the track and road. The 2020 Corvette generates 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, which is the most powerful production Stingray in history.

“The long wait is finally over, and the new mid-engine Chevy Corvette is as good as we could have imagined. So good, in fact, that it earned a 2020 10Best award right out of the gate,” said Car and Driver’s Michael Simari. “The eighth-generation Corvette now boasts an engine behind the passenger cabin, just like the best from Porsche, Ferrari, and McLaren but at many thousands of dollars less.”

Other features include a special Z51 Package, which has larger brakes, eLSD lighting, a front splitter, and special performance tires, among other things. There’s also available Magnetic Ride Control™ 4.0, while a unique performance data recorder is great for those who want to capture acceleration speed, braking, gear choice, and more information.

Chevy Reserves Trail Boss Trim for Truck Models

Trail Boss | Chevy Silverado | Frank Porth Chevrolet

For a while, GM has been undecided whether or not they would extend the Chevrolet Trail Boss trim to their line of SUVs and heavy-duty pickups. For now, at least, the Silverado 1500 will continue to be the only Chevy to carry the Trail Boss brand name.

The Silverado 1500 Trail Boss edition is an off-road beast, coming standard equipped with the same off-road features as the Z71 Off-Road package, including hill descent control and Rancho shocks. Also included is a 2-inch suspension lift, 18-inch Mud Terrain Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac® tires, and other premium off-roading features.

Though the Trail Boss trim may not be making its way into the SUV market for now, the 2021 Tahoe and Suburban will offer a Z71 trim. These models will include 20-inch wheels, upgraded tires, and available features such as Magnetic Ride Control and Air Ride Adaptive suspension. The Z71 trim includes a front skid plate, red tow hooks, and black on black chrome exterior accents. As expected in an off-road vehicle, four-wheel drive will come standard, with a two-speed transfer case for ultimate traction and control.

As far as Chevy’s HD series of pickups go, no HD Trail Boss is in the works, but the Silverado HD Z71 Sport debuted at the 2019 SEMA show and is slated for production in 2021.
