- 2020 Corvette C8 has a special button on the steering wheel that activates something called "Z mode".
- This button provides a shortcut to personal settings for station mode, which can be configured via the center screen.  Chevy called the Z mode after the letter its significant history with the car, including Corvette Z06 and Corvette ZR1.
Now that the mid-term Chevy Corvette has been officially revealed to the world, we can start focusing on some of its great new features. It includes a button marked with the letter Z mounted on the left speaking of the car's squared-off wheel, which was plagued by the Chevy before the C8's official debut. That picture showed a strange silver button that we guessed it could be a kind of dedicated driving mode selector. As it turns out, we were right.
The previous generation of Corvette C7 had selectable driving modes, including Tour, Weather, Eco, Sport and Track, and the middle C8 provides even more customization. The mode allows drivers to mix and match the settings of the engine, transmission and control beyond these presets. Models equipped with the available MagneRide Adaptive attenuator will also offer adjustable suspension settings.
BMW M cars like the 10 best winning M2 and even the Hyundai Veloster N have similar switches on the steering wheels, while these buttons are dotted with a letter directly. tea extracted from their respective model name, it carries on a C8 Corvette helmet a "Z" for historical reasons. Chevy says the letter pays homage to prominent Corvette models and packages over the years. These include the Z51 performance package, the Z06 model, and the all-powerful ZR1 everything we expect will eventually return to the middle C8 corvette.
