We’ve looked at the standard features, colors, and interior colors of Chevy’s next-generation 2020 Corvette. Now, it’s time to take a look at the seats. The mid-engine Corvette will initially offer a total of three seating options, comprised of one standard seat and two available seats. We’ve compiled a detailed overview of 2020 Corvette seats, complete with pictures, availability info, and other details for your browsing and shopping pleasure.
All 2020 Corvette seats are equipped with 8-way power controls, and the up-level seats add more adjustment features. Additionally, the seats are covered either in performance textile Napa or Mulan leather. The Napa leather seats are available either with perforated only or perforated and sueded microfiber inserts, whereas the Mulan leather seats are only available with non-sueded perforated inserts.
Seat availability varies across the three different 2020 Corvette Stingray trim levels. For instance, GT2 seats can only be equipped on 2LT or 3LT models. Since GT2 seats are the only seats available in two-tone color options, this also means that two-tone seats can only be had in 2LT or 3LT models.
GT1 Bucket Seats
The GT1 bucket seats are the standard chairs on the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. They’re standard on 1LT and 2LT trims. Chevrolet says that the GT1 seats are designed to support drivers and passengers over long distances of travel.
The GT1 chairs are available exclusively in Mulan leather with perforated inserts. They’re available only in Jet Black, Sky Cool Gray, and Adrenaline Red. Unlike GT2 and Competition seats, the GT1 seats do not feature carbon fiber accents. On top of that, GT1 seats are not available with heating or ventilation features, and do not have adjustable lumbar or bolster.
GT2 Bucket Seats
The GT2 bucket seats are available on 2LT and standard on 3LT. Like the GT1 seats, the GT2 seats support drivers and passengers over long distances of travel, while providing more adjustment options: besides the 8-way adjustment of the GT1 chairs, the GT2 also add power lumbar and bolster control.
The GT2 chairs also feature carbon-fiber trim with a seatback halo. They are only available in genuine Napa Leather and offer sueded or non-sueded, perforated inserts.
Competition Bucket Seats
The Competition bucket seats feature support for high-performance and track driving, with performance textile in high-wear areas, which is a similar material to thick mesh. Like the GT2 seats, the Competition bucket seats feature carbon-fiber trim.
The Competition seats are wrapped in Napa with available suede. They are available in any of the seven interior colors and are optional on any 2020 Corvette trim level.
The table below lists all three sets 2020 Corvette seats, along with the corresponding RPO Codes, available colors, and trim level availability.

Chevrolet gives buyers a great amount of choice when it comes to personalizing the 2020 Corvette straight from the factory. This applies to the exterior as much as it does to the interior, including the seats.
