2020 Corvette Z51

The more things change, the more they stay the same. Chevrolet opted to keep the Stingray name for the entry-level version of its mid-engine 2020 Corvette, and another familiar name was mentioned at the debut event held Thursday in Orange County, California.

The Z51 Performance Package previously graced the outgoing C7 Corvette with a handful of goodies that, among other things, increased power from 455 to 460 horsepower. The package has many of the same goals for the 2020 Corvette Stingray and a video helps break down what buyers will get when they check the box marked «Z51.»

The list of parts and upgrades includes: 

– Michelin PS4 summer performance tires

– Performance suspension

– Adjustable threaded spring seats

– Larger brake rotors with Z51 graphics

– Enhanced cooling systems

– An electronic limited-slip differential with a specific axle ratio

– Unique rear spoiler and front splitter

– Front brake cooling inlets

– Performance exhaust system

Chevrolet’s Magnetic Ride Control is a further option when opting for the Z51 Performance Package.
