If you've been watching all the Corvette Stingray news, it's pretty obvious that we at Motor1 are huge fans. Sure, it must be the most hyped Chevrolet, let alone the mid-engined sports car, since it probably ever is, but with everything we know so far, the wait has definitely paid off. Those in Atlantic City on the east coast have had the pleasure of seeing Stingray in the metal during the unveiling, and those who were left lying at the end of the day had the chance to witness the car being stowed away for storage. This also gave Stingray a chance to showcase his latest party tricks.
2020 The Corvette Stingray has a beautiful lift system that can lift the car by 2 inches in just 2.8 seconds and up to speeds of 24 miles per hour. This ensures that the precious bumper and the front splitter are protected from bumps, jet pans and steep driveways. Now that does not mean that terrain excursions are now possible, or that this type of system is new. No, what makes Corvette the highlight is that it is integrated into the car's GPS system. This means the driver can set and store up to 1,000 places that require extra ground clearance.
As the driver pulls up to his usual parking space, driveway or turn up, as long as the coordinates have been programmed, Stingray automatically increases ground clearance. Of course, if owners prefer not to use this handy feature, the suspension can still be lifted manually via a button on the center console, just like how Stingray in the video makes it to the tent platform without sweat. A simple but brilliant feature that makes us think, why is this not a common thing with all high performance cars?
