The 2020 Corvette Has Been Delayed, Here’s Why

It almost seems like it’s been since the dawn of time that we have been speculating about a mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette. For the next generation Vette, though, it seems like we have the most solid evidence to substantiate claims of the engine being shifted from the front of the car to the middle of the car. However, at this point in the timeline, it’s starting to seem a little bit like everything is a giant tease as we still have yet to get any breaking, solid news from Chevrolet admitting that they’re planning to do this. Based on what we’ve been getting in spy photos, it does pretty much look like it’s going to happen rather quickly but some recent news might just be a shock to the heart if you are heavily anticipating the mid-engined version of America’s sweetheart.

Recently, via GM Authority, breaking news would come down that the brand is reconsidering the way that the car is physically wired, all because, in layman’s terms, it seems like the current wiring set up in place has not been designed to handle all that they want the car to do. This is a very important aspect of many of today’s cars as manufacturers need to make sure that all electronics are as consistent and reliable as possible and there are certainly a lot of them functioning at once. Essentially, I guess that you might even be able to argue that the wiring components are the foundational building blocks of the whole ordeal with today’s vehicles

If you follow along with the video below, you’ll get a little bit of commentary on exactly what news broke from GM Authority and how exactly you can interpret this news. With the anticipated release of the car coming around 2020 or potentially 2021, this is definitely an untimely announcement and leads you to wonder if they’re going to be making small changes or are going to be going from the ground up. However, it’s hard to deny that it’s better safe than sorry with the matter like this.
