The 2020 C8 Corvette Stingray has more than good looks — it’s loaded with fun and functional features that elevate your driving experience.

Easy-access frunk

With its engine no longer directly under the hood, the C8 Corvette Stingray has a little extra room to spare. It puts that space to good use by offering a front trunk, or “frunk.” Luckily, the Corvette offers plenty of ways to access the frunk. You can open it from inside the cabin, pop the hood remotely with a button on the key, or use the hidden button on the front fascia, concealed just above the left side of the air vent. Don’t worry — the Corvette keeps random people from accessing the frunk. Much like the rear trunk, the frunk uses a proximity feature, so you’ll have to keep the key nearby when you’re pressing the button.

Hidden logos

We’re all familiar with the Corvette’s signature V-shaped logo, consisting of two flags. However, you might’ve missed some of the hidden details — including the many Corvette logos scattered throughout the vehicle. The most cleverly hidden logo might be right at your fingertips — it’s on a speaker between the front seats. The speaker bears some carefully drilled holes, and when viewed from certain angles, they reveal the Corvette’s signature crossed flags. You probably won’t be able to see them from the driver or passenger seat — they’re most easily visible from outside the cabin.

You’ll find even more Corvette symbols on the exterior. Just like the C7 Corvette, the C8 Corvette Stingray’s rear window is bedecked with a pattern of crossed flags. However, these new flags reflect the narrower, updated logo.

Z-Mode and My Mode

Customize your driving experience with Z-Mode. This mode allows you to electronically adjust 12 performance variables, such as tweaks to the engine, transmission, steering, and suspension. You can save these settings with the available My Mode.

Avoid scrapes and scratches

With the available Front Lift system, the Corvette can raise its front by about 2 inches in just three seconds, allowing your Corvette to painlessly pass over low obstacles like speed bumps. It can be programmed to remember up to 1,000 GPS locations, so once you’ve got it set up, it easily integrates into your driving experience.
