    CHEVROLET CORVETTE VOTED 2020 NORTH AMERICAN CAR OF THE YEAR

    2020 Stingray impresses independent group of prestigious journalists


    The all-new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has been selected as the 2020 North American Car of the Year by a 50-member jury of independent journalists. The Stingray was selected not only for its revolutionary mid-engine design, but for its level of refinement and impressive performance.

    The Corvette was previously honored with this award in 1998 for the introduction of the fifth generation and again in 2014 for the introduction of the seventh generation. Corvette executive chief engineer Tadge Juechter received the award this morning at a public ceremony held at the TCF Center in Detroit.

    “It’s humbling to be selected for this award by such an impressive jury of automotive journalists,” said Juechter. “Our team poured our hearts and souls into this vehicle, and to see such an overwhelmingly positive reception makes it all worthwhile. We are sure our customers will love the new Corvette as much as these jurors and we can’t wait to get them behind the wheel."

    The North American Car, Utility and Truck of the Year Awards honor excellence in innovation, design, safety, performance, technology, driver satisfaction and value. Founded in 1994 by Christopher Jensen, who also formed the first committee, the NACTOY awards are judged by approximately 50 professional automotive journalists from the United States and Canada who work for independent magazines, television, radio, newspapers and industry websites. After evaluating the field of competitors, jurors vote individually by way of Deloitte to determine finalists and winners in each category.

    “The 2020 Corvette represents a new era for the iconic brand,” said Lauren Fix, North American Car, Utility and Truck of the Year president. “The excitement from consumers has been overwhelming. From a journalist's perspective, this is one of the best-built GM products that exemplifies what it means to be the North American Car of the Year.”

    Corvette production will begin in February 2020 at General Motors’ Bowling Green Assembly in Kentucky, with customer deliveries taking place shortly thereafter.

    Given the changes made to the Corvette and results it should win every major car award this year, who knows, maybe even 4x4 of the year.

                    The Corvette team has to be thrilled the car has won I think every major award in North America now. Our reward for being patient is we will get to take delivery in maybe 2 months or less. LUCKY US!

                            What an exciting time for GM and the Entire Corvette Team and all of Us who have secured our positions to acquire one of these fantastic pieces of Automotive History. The wait will be well worth it. And to be able to add the technological components which will make the car even more special. A HUGE THANKS to all who have had a part in whatever capacity.

                              I think you made the same picks so back at ya. As with all successful magnates, the lottery is the foundation of my financial well-being.
