Mid-Engine Corvette And 2020 Chevy Silverado HD Caught On Video

The Corvette C8 has been caught on video while apparently undergoing testing in Colorado.

While the clip only provides a few glimpses of the highly-anticipated model, it gives us one of first chances to hear the car. The exhaust is occasionally spoiled by the voice over but the uploader notes they followed the Corvette for approximately 10 miles (16 km) and were obviously excited.

There’s no word on what’s powering this particular prototype but Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen has dismissed rumors that the model will use the brand’s new twin-turbo 4.2-liter V8 that resides in the 2019 CT6 V-Sport. Of course, that doesn’t mean engineers couldn’t make a few modifications to the engine and say it’s different than the one used by Cadillac.

There have also been rumors that the model will use a twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8 and a familiar 6.2-liter V8. Only time will tell but we might not have to wait much longer as the company reportedly teased the model at a dealer convention earlier this week. There has also been growing speculation that an official announcement could be made by the end of the year.

Besides showing the Corvette, the clip appears to feature two prototypes of the next-generation Silverado HD. The trucks are heavily camouflaged but they have a massive grille, LED daytime running lights and tow mirrors. The redesigned model is expected to be unveiled next year and it will likely feature styling similar to the 2019 Silverado 1500. As a result, we can expect a blocky front fascia and new bodywork with distinctive character lines.

Engine options remain unconfirmed but the current Silverado 2500 offers a 6.0-liter V8 that develops 360 hp (268 kW) and 380 lb-ft (514 Nm) of torque. The truck can also be equipped with a 6.6-liter Duramax V8 turbodiesel engine with 445 hp (331 kW) and 910 lb-ft (1,232 Nm) of torque.
