5. Chevrolet Corvette
Assembly Location: Bowling Green, Kentucky
After years of rumors about a mid-engine Corvette, Chevrolet introduced the eighth generation of this legendary sports car in 2019 and it is indeed the first mid-engine Corvette in history. This revolutionary design for America’s sports car offers more performance, technology and luxury than any previous generation. The new car features better weight distribution with a rear weight bias to improve both straightline and on-track performance, as well as better responsiveness and sense of control with the driver positioned closer to the front axle. Although Chevy pundits say there will likely be other power options in its future, the new C8 Corvette currently sports the all-new LT2 6.2-liter V8 engine producing 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. No manual transmission is offered — instead, the engine gets teamed with a quick-shifting dual-clutch 8-speed automatic gearbox.
