Chevrolet promised that pricing for its super-cool 2020 Corvette C8 Stingray would start at less than $60,000. Sure enough, the base trim of this all-new sports car comes in just under the wire at $59,995 (not counting taxes and fees).

The 2020 Corvette has been completely redesigned around a mid-engine layout that delivers supercar looks, incredible handling, and fearsome power.

“Most people thought when we moved the Corvette to mid-engine it would no longer be attainable, but we knew we couldn’t mess with a winning formula and the 2020 Stingray proves it,” said Brian Sweeney, Chevrolet’s U.S. vice president.

Even though it costs less than $60,000, the 2020 Corvette’s entry-level 1LT trim delivers on exciting performance and features.

“We’ve packed a lot of performance into the Corvette Stingray at this price when you consider an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, small block V8, and engine-mounted dry sump oil system are all standard,” said Tadge Juechter, Corvette executive chief engineer.

Other standard features on the 1LT trim include leather seating, Brembo brakes, selectable driving modes, Bose sound, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a 12-inch configurable color cluster display.

If you’ve got a bigger budget, the Corvette 2LT starts at $67,295 and adds a head-up display, heated and ventilated seats, navigation, and a Rear Camera Mirror. The Corvette 3LT starts at $71,945 and upgrades the interior with Napa and Mulan leather seats, carbon fiber trim, and leather and suede surfaces.

For an extra $5,000, all Corvette trims can be had with the Z51 Performance Package. This option adds a performance suspension and exhaust, an electronic limited-slip differential, rear spoiler, and other features that allow the car to blaze 0-60 mph in less than 3 seconds.
