Kuwait, January, 2020: Today, at the Kuwait Motor Show 2020, Chevrolet Alghanim unveiled three new vehicles to car lovers in the country. Headlining the show was the 2020 Corvette Stingray, making its regional debut and bringing new levels of performance, technology, craftsmanship and luxury to Chevrolet’s 2020 line-up. Furthermore, the company introduced Captiva, a returning family favorite, and 2020 Tahoe Falcon, an exclusive edition for Kuwait’s market.
Held under the patronage of his Excellency Sheikh Mohamed Abdullah Al Mubarak Al Sabah, Deputy Minister of The Amiri Diwan of Kuwait, the Kuwait Motor Show 2020 is a perfect platform to regionally debut Chevrolet’s latest vehicles, as it brings the region’s biggest car enthusiasts under one roof to appreciate how the company is driving the future through innovation and cutting-edge automotive engineering.
Building on the boundary-pushing legacy of the nameplate, the 2020 Stingray is the first ever mid-engine Corvette, attaining the very pinnacle of innovation. Reaching the highest limits of performance with the traditional front-engine vehicle, Chevrolet engineers relocated the very heart of the Corvette: its engine. Now, sitting like a jewel in a showcase, the 2020 Stingray packs the fastest 0-60 time of any entry Corvette ever at under three seconds when equipped with Z51 performance package.
The 2020 Stingray is powered by Chevy’s next-generation 6.2L Small Block V-8 LT2 engine, the only naturally aspirated V-8 in its segment. It will produce 495 horsepower and 637 Nm of torque when equipped with performance exhaust — the most horsepower and torque for any entry Corvette.
Inspired by modern fighter jets, the 2020 Stingray cuts a striking silhouette: lean, muscular and unmistakably Corvette. Expressing power and a sense of motion from every angle, the new location of the engine is the focal point of the design, visible through the large rear hatch window.
The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray goes into production at GM’s Bowling Green Assembly in late 2019 and will be available in the Middle East from mid-2020.
The all-new 2020 Captiva is a complete reinvention of its nameplate, building on Chevrolet’s global SUV experience to mark a new era for Captiva in the Middle East. With its cutting-edge styling, life-sized interior space, high fuel efficiency and smart technologies, the all-new Chevrolet Captiva is a car for every family that is constantly on the move.
With sharp and modern styling, Captiva is lean and muscular. Available in both five and seven seats configurations, the Captiva encapsulates Chevrolet’s SUV philosophy: spacious, stylish and smart.
Delivering real driving satisfaction and maintaining an efficient fuel economy, Captiva is powered by a 1.5L turbo-charged engine and 255 Nm of torque. Beyond being a good-looking car, Captiva’s design is built to be safe and convenient as the car comes equipped with a host of active safety features and technologies to make the drivers’ daily commute easier and more enjoyable.
Captiva will be available from early 2020 in three trims and five color options.
Kuwait’s exclusive edition of the new 2020 Tahoe Falcon boasts an edgy and sleek design that complements its strong performance. With blacked out wheels, blacked out Chevrolet bowtie and other blackened accents, this exclusive edition is sure to make you stand out from the crowd.
Beneath the stylish design and refined interior of the Tahoe lies the heart of a true off-roader. A formidable 5.3L V8 engine delivers ample amounts of power to the available 4-Wheel Drive system, whilst Magnetic Ride Control works to keep your adventure on track. Add to this a host of available off-road enhancements and technology, and you’ve got a 4X4 that really is ready for anything.
In addition to the new vehicles’ launch, Chevrolet Alghanim showcased 2020 Chevrolet Malibu, the midsize sedan that has so much to offer, and the all-new Silverado combining hardworking functionalities with refined comfort. The company put on show as well the latest member of the Chevrolet crossover family, Blazer, and BOLT EV, the electric car that has a long list of impressive characteristics, including some of the most technologically-advanced features, a stand-out look and plenty of space.
