GM To Livestream 2020 Corvette C8 Reveal On July 18 At 7:30PM PDT

If you’ve waited all of your life for Chevrolet to finally get a mid-engine Corvette, you’ll probably want to stay glued to your phone, tablet or computer screen on July 18, when the 2020 model will be presented to the world via livestream from Orange County, California.

The event will kick off at 7:30 pm PDT / 10:30 pm EDT, and you can “attend” it online by using this link. The livestream will include video footage of the car, as well as a hosted pre-show and the reveal presentation itself.

“There is a large contingent of Corvette fans across the world waiting for the reveal of the Next Generation. We’re happy to give these fans, and all sports car enthusiasts, a way to see and learn about the vehicle at the same time as those participating live in California,” said GM exec Barry Engle. “Viewers will hear directly from Chevrolet leadership, engineering and some special guests about the highlights and background of this first mid-engine Corvette.”

After the reveal, the car will embark on two national dealership tours that will include vehicle specialists as well as multiple interactive displays. Customers will also be invited to take part in these events, where they will learn how they can best personalize (custom seats, wheels, accessories etc) their own all-new 2020 Corvette.

These tours will begin on both East and West Coasts and will result in the car being showcased at more than 125 select dealerships across the continental U.S. – starting immediately after the reveal and extending though early next year. Specific tour dates and cities will be made available on July 19.

“With all the excitement around this vehicle, we don’t want people to have to wait to experience it in person. Our national tours will bring the Next Generation car right to our customers’ local Chevrolet dealership, where they can start imagining themselves in their very own personalized mid-engine Corvette,” concluded Engle.

As for what we can expect under the hood, the 2020 Corvette should debut in Stingray guise, featuring a new version of GM’s 6.2-liter LT1 naturally-aspirated V8 engine, feeding its rear wheels some 500 HP with the help of an automatic transmission, possibly dual-clutch. Later on into its production, more powerful versions will be deployed, with considerably higher outputs.

    Why the reveal in Cali? Here on the east coast, I’ll be fast asleep (or almost). Not interested enough to ruin the following day. There’s not much left to see, really.
