The Corvette previously took home the MotorTrend Car of the Year award in 1984 and 1998. The iconic sports car won the latest award after Chevrolet completely redesigned the car for the 2020 model year, giving it a mid-engine design and striking style.
The fun-to-drive Corvette gets its power from a 6.2-liter V8 engine, which reaches 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque when you opt for the Z51 Performance Package. This package also enables the car to go 0 to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds, while you sit comfortably in the cabin.
MotorTrend Editor-in-Chief Edward Loh said, “We have been looking forward to the arrival of the mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette for so long, that you’d think there is no way it could live up to the weight of expectations, but the all-new C8 Corvette epitomizes what it means to be MotorTrend’s 2020 Car of the Year.”
From its high-quality cabin space to its thrilling performance, the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has all you need to enjoy the ride, making it well-deserving of the award.

Since the beginning, Chevrolet has called Detroit home, which is why it made perfect sense for Chevrolet and Little Caesar’s Arena to join forces. Chevrolet is now the official vehicle of the brand new Little Caesar’s Arena, home to the Detroit Red Wings, concerts, and other entertainment. Since 2015, Chevrolet has been the official vehicle for the Detroit Red Wings.
Paul Edwards, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet Marketing, said, “We look forward to continuing to support the Red Wings and the revitalization of our hometown, the City of Detroit, as a landmark partner in the new Little Caesars Arena — a perfect complement to our partnership with the Detroit Tigers and presence at Comerica Park.”
With this expanded partnership, Chevrolet will have an even bigger presence at the arena. The northeast entrance, along Woodward Avenue, will feature large-scale Chevrolet branding. In addition, there will be a new Chevrolet Plaza with a giant video screen that will be used for community programming and concerts.
Visitors to the arena will be able to spot the Chevrolet brand and distinctive bowtie throughout the venue, including being one of four in ice partners.
The team here at Buff Whelan Chevrolet in Sterling Heights, MI is excited about this new partnership between Chevrolet and Little Caesar’s Arena and we can’t wait to see what the future holds!
General Motors is rolling with the “go big or go home” motto when it comes to the sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro. It wasn’t long ago that Chevrolet revealed the Camaro ZL1 1LE performance model, but now the American automaker is upping the ante. The new Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R is a racing model designed to compete with the best of the best.
The new Camaro GT4.R is the first GT customer car from General Motors that’s available to the global market. Chevrolet joined forces with Pratt & Miller to create the track-ready model. The GT4 build means it can take to the track in the IMSA Continental Tire Sports Car Challenges Grant Sport class and Pirelli World Challenge’s GTS class.
“The Camaro GT4.R is a true racing customer car that Chevrolet is proud to support,” said Shawn Meagher, Chevrolet’s Program Manager for the Camaro GT4.R.
Under the hood of the Camaro GT4.R lies a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine that delivers a heart-pounding 650 hp. It comes perfectly complemented with Brembo brakes, adjustable traction control, and much more.
The track-oriented model is set to make its official debut at the Pirelli World Challenge. Two Camaro GT4.Rs will take the track with Tony Gaples and Lawson Aschenback behind the wheels.
