Chevrolet Wont Reveal Mid-Engined C8 at NAIAS
Only new GM product that will be unveiled is the 2020 Cadillac XT6
If youve been eagerly awaiting the reveal of the mid-engined C8 Corvette, weve got bad news for ya. Much to our surprise, General Motors doesn’t have any plans to debut it at the 2019 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, which kicks off its media-only days Jan. 14.
While Detroit seems like the obvious place to launch the new Corvette, Chevrolet might have a trick or two up its sleeve. After all, the C1 1953 Corvette, the granddaddy of them all, was originally revealed in New York City at GM’s Motorama. If the American automaker decides to go that route, it would mean that the Corvette faithful would have to wait until the very end of April 2019 to see the new creation.
The Drive reached out to Chevrolet for an official word on the Corvette’s debut, but as expected, the answer was standard.
"We have nothing to announce in terms of timing for reveal of any additional future product," a Chevrolet spokesperson told The Drive via email.
