There are few things we haven’t yet learned about the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray given the extensive media coverage the mid-engine Vette received these past weeks.
One of the most interesting features of the new generation car is a standard front suspension lift system that most supercars only offer as an option — despite the fact that they are way more expensive.
Over the weekend, the 2020 Corvette Stingray made its East Coast debut in Atlantic City at Kerbeck Corvette, the world’s largest Corvette dealer. The event in Atlantic City allowed visitors to check out some of the features of the new mid-engine car in detail, including the Front End Lift System.
The folks from Corvette Blogger were there too and managed to capture on film the moment the 2020 Corvette engaged the system to enter a tent that was its garage for the night.
As you can see in the video posted below, as soon as the 2020 Corvette approached the raised asphalt surface, the nose of the car rose by 1.6 inches (40 mm) to allow the front splitter to clear the obstacle. Once the front was lifted, it could safely cross the threshold into the tent.
The 2020 Corvette Stingray is capable of engaging the front end lift system from a standstill or on the move, at speeds of up to 24 mph (39 km/h). Interestingly, the system is capable of storing over 1,000 GPS entries so that it knows to lift the nose automatically when it reaches one of the points.
The second video captures the atmosphere at the event and some opinions from Corvette fans who were in attendance. Enjoy!
