The Chevrolet Corvette continues to win both hearts and awards. The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 earned honors at the 2019 Sport Auto Awards in November, taking home two trophies: one in Convertibles/Roadsters under 150,000 and the other in Euros and Coupes under 150,000 Euros.
The Corvette Z06 boasts a 6.2-liter Supercharged V8 that
delivers 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to that kind of power,
it earned a score of 52.2 percent in the convertibles and roadsters class,
allowing the Corvette Z06 to take the top prize over the Jaguar F-Type SVR and
Maserati GranCabrio. In the coupe class, the Corvette Z06 had a tighter race.
It beat out the F-Type SVR and the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye with a
score of 38.7 percent.
This is the 27th year that the German magazine, Sport
Auto, has run the awards, which are calculated in a reader’s choice format.
Readers chose from a field of 238 vehicles in 18 production and 10 tuning
vehicle categories Almost 13,000 readers participated this year in the voting
process, which is held every year in November.
Chevrolet is planning to release a new Corvette, which will
be the most powerful version of the Corvette Stingray ever made. It’s capable
of producing 490 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque. With stats like that, more
awards are surely in Chevrolet’s future.
The SEMA Show is an annual event that reveals innovative aftermarket
products and celebrates the organization’s partnership with famous automakers.
Plus, it’s where the industry’s best vehicles are crowned with a prestigious
title, based on their segment. These awards are given to just five categories
of vehicles — including trucks.
The Silverado brought home the Truck of the Year title thanks
to Chevy’s dedication to introducing new features and technologies year in and
year out, aimed at constantly elevating user experience in a Silverado. This
includes technology like an available 15-view camera system to make trailering
easier, an available Head-Up Display that can project information to on the
windshield so you don’t have to take your eyes off the road, and two
segment-first rear-seatback storage compartments.
Because of these innovations and new features being added into the Silverado and other Chevy vehicles, Chevrolet continues to show its dedication to bringing only the best to its fans. This has allowed the Silverado to thrive for many years, and the best is still yet to come for Silverado fans.
Chevrolet revealed the 2020 Corvette Stingray convertible, which is the first-ever Corvette convertible with a mid-engine and a hardtop. The hardtop Corvette convertible has new impressive features and gives a powerful performance.
With the hardtop, the
cabin of the Stingray is quieter, which makes for more relaxing drives. The
hardtop also has a sleek appearance and adds more security. When you put the
top down, you can still utilize the spacious trunk and the front storage
compartment of the convertible to store your sports equipment and other cargo.
You can activate the two-piece top when
driving at speeds of up to 30 mph, and you can retract it in just 16 seconds. You
can have a roof that is body-colored, or you can opt for the Carbon Flash
metallic-painted nacelles and roof for a bold style.
The convertible contains a 6.2-liter Small Block V8 LT2 engine, which reaches 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. An eight-speed dual-clutch transmission pairs with the engine. Plus, the vehicle’s chassis was adjusted to provide a spirited performance.
The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray convertible is an exciting new vehicle. We at Greenwood Chevrolet encourage you to stop by our dealership to take one of our Chevrolet models out for a test drive to learn more about the available features.
