Chevrolet introduced its Corvette Stingray convertible in Cape Canaveral, Florida on Wednesday, Oct 2, 2019. The new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray will be slightly different than its predecessor not only in terms of pricing but also in its features.

The car will be the first of its line to receive a lot of ‘firsts’. First of all, the convertible will have the first retractable hardtop in Corvette history. The engines of both the Corvette coupe and the convertible will be replaced from its place at the nose of the car to just behind the passenger seat.

The top of the convertible can be opened and closed at the speed of 30 mph in just 16 seconds, and it retracts back to a place between the passenger compartment and the rear wheels.

However, opening the top would not affect the storage space at the back of the car. The front side of the car where the engine was supposed to be will remain vacated and this empty space can be used to carry an airline-spec carry-on and a laptop bag.

The convertible’s 6.2L V8 engine will not be visible like in the Corvette coupe which had a glass viewing plate over its engine. Other than the body-color, the roof will also be available in Carbon Flash color. The driver will have control over the power rear window which can be opened or closed even when the top id on or off.

However, the Corvette couple’s rear window does not open. The drivetrain of the Corvette Stingray is the same as the Corvette Coupe which comes with a 495 horsepower ad 470 pound-feet of torque from the latest version of Chevy’s legendary small-block V8 linked to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission from longtime ‘Vette gearbox specialist Tremec.

The dual-clutch will be a first addition to the Corvette cars and the shift change is supposed to be lightning fast. The car also comes with an aerodynamic downforce to keep the car firmly planted on the road at high speeds.

The car is supposed to go on sale in early 2020 and is priced at $66,400.
