Corvette executive chief engineer Tadge Juechter accepted the award at the TCF Center in Detroit. This is the third time the Corvette has received this award.
“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 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.”
Look for the 2020 Corvette and first-ever Corvette hardtop convertible to be available soon. Production starts next month in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
