This just in: The new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray was named the 2020 North American Car of the Year, establishing it as the car to beat for the year to come. The 2020 Corvette Stingray marks the first iteration of a mid-engine production-ready Corvette.
Fifty automotive journalists from Canada and the United States came together at the annual car show to select a winner. The group graded new vehicles on driver satisfaction, performance, value, innovation, safety, technology, and design. After evaluating each vehicle in contention, the journalists individually cast their vote for their top choice.
This not the first time that the Corvette has brought home this award. Previously, the Corvette was named North American Car of the Year in 1998 when Chevy introduced the fifth generation of the sports car and then again in 2014 when the bowtie brand debuted the seventh generation.
“The 2020 Corvette represents a new era for the iconic brand,” remarked Lauren Fix, North American Car, Utility, and Truck of the Year president. “The excitement from consumers has been overwhelming. From a journalist’s perspective, this is one of the best-built GM products that exemplifies what it means to be the North American Car of the Year.”
Production of the 2020 Corvette begins this month in Bowling Green, Kentucky. To learn more how you can get your hands on one, talk to the sales team at Cecil Atkission GM and we’ll help you get behind the wheel of the 2020 North American Car of the Year.
