Last month, we pulled 2020 Corvette orders from Kerbeck Chevrolet, the largest Corvette dealership in the United States, to determine which colors were the most popular on the new mid-engine sports car. Kerbeck’s numbers indicated Torch Red was the most popular color for the 2020 Corvette, followed by Arctic White and Elkhart Lake Blue Metallic in second and third, respectively.
Now General Motors has published its own numbers for 2020 Corvette exterior colors, however, giving us a clearer picture as to which are the most common colors for the new sports car. Not surprisingly, Torch Red remains the most popular 2020 Corvette exterior color, followed by Arctic White with 15% of orders and Black with 12%. Rounding out the top five most popular colors are Sebring Orange Tintcoat Metallic and Elkhart Lake Blue Metallic, both of which have 7% of the order ratio.
But while the most popular colors ordered from Kerbeck Chevrolet may differ slightly from Chevrolet’s total numbers, the least popular colors were identical. The least popular colors for the 2020 Corvette are Zeus Bronze Metallic and Accelerate Yellow Metallic, both of which account for just 3% of 2020 Corvette orders.
GM also provided some figures for the popularity of the 2020 Corvette interior colors. The most popular interior color on the sports car is Jet Black at 85%, while Adrenaline Red is close behind with 25%. Jet Black with Red accents was third, accounting for 12% of all orders, and was tied with Natural, also at 12%. The least popular interior color was Morello Red at 1%, followed by Jet Black with Yellow accents at 3%.
Additionally, GM has also provided some figures on the most popular options for the 2020 Corvette. The vast majority (89%) of customers opted for the Performance Exhaust while many customers (61%) also wanted the more comfortable GT2 bucket seats as opposed to the Competition seats. The front axle lift system is also popular, with 58% of customers ticking the box for this convenient and practical option.
The 2021 Corvette will add two new paint options to its pallette, which include Red Mist Tintcoat Metallic and Silver Flare Metallic.
