Engine 2020 Chevrolet Corvette to be Revealed on July 18

Barra in the C8 GM ceo Mary Barra got a ride in the coming Corvette driven here by Corvette chief engineer Tadge Juechter

Since then, the C8 has been one of the worst-kept secrets in the industry, with numerous spy shots, leaks, and almost-official information coming across our desks. GM released a set of photos of the auto - still wrapped in camouflage. The head of General Motors arrived a camouflaged C8 Corvette, driven by no other than chief engineer - Tadge Juechter.

For starters, it's expected that the base models of the C8 will feature an upgraded version of the 6.2-liter V8 engine now used in the C7 Corvette Stingray. As far as we know there's no significance around that date. However, we've heard plenty of rumors about what will be going into this Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini and McLaren slayer.

Previewing the reveal, General Motors released a photo showing GM Chairman and CEO Mary Barra standing next to a camouflaged, next-generation Corvette on Thursday in NY.

About two minutes later, its center core landed successfully on the "Of Course I Still Love You" droneship in the Atlantic Ocean. The so-called Arabsat 6A satellite was placed into an equatorial orbit some 22,000 miles (36,000km) above the Earth.

The base model will likely use an upgraded version of the 6.2-liter V8 engine that now sits in the Corvette C7 and Camaro SS. The current base Corvette C7 goes for around $55,000. The engine will use a version of the existing pushrod 6.2-liter V8 making around 500 horsepower. It will likely continue to drive the rear wheels, but a rumoured hybrid version that powers all four might be in the works.

We've known for some time now, that the C8 Corvette will break tradition and go for a dual-clutch transmission instead of a manual or an automatic. But as good as the C7 is and has been, it has been slightly overshadowed by the imminent and much-rumored mid-engined C8, which we first saw spy photos of-and thus got confirmation of-in 2015.
