The all-new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible is nearly identical to its coupe. Chevy on Wednesday revealed the 2020 Corvette Convertible Stingray, the first car in Corvette nameplate history to feature a retractable hardtop roof.
The Stingray convertible comes powered by a naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8 good for 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. All of that power is directed to the rear wheels through a new eight-speed-dual-clutch transmission. No manual will be offered. Those who opt for the Z51 Performance Package will blast from 0-60 mph in only 3.0 seconds.
The composite hardtop, which can be operated at speeds of up to 30 mph, takes 16 seconds to go down thanks to six electric motors. The electric top system is also new replacing the hydraulic unit found in previous Corvette convertibles for improved reliability, according to Chevrolet.
Heading inside, the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 Plus system with an 8-inch touchscreen comes standard to control features including a 10-speaker Bose sound setup, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot and Bluetooth connectivity. Audiophiles will also be able to equip a punchier, 14-speaker Bose Performance Series audio system.
The convertible’s roof matches the body color as standard but the Corvette’s Carbon Flash metallic hue can be added as an option for the roof and flying buttresses.
The convertbile’s $7,500 more than an equivalently specced Stingray coupe, with prices starting at $67,495.
