The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 comes with a long list of features specifically designed to maximize enjoyment behind the wheel. This includes a variety of digital modes that tailor the sports car to a variety of conditions. Now, details on all of the 2020 Corvette driver modes can be found in the following Corvette Academy video.
The video is relatively short, clocking in at two minutes, 43 seconds. However, it comes packed with info on what each of the 2020 Corvette driver modes is designed to do, and how to use them.
As the video outlines, the new C8 comes standard with a driver mode selector, which allows users to choose between several presets that configure the vehicle to handle specific conditions, including Weather, Tour, Sport, and Track. There are also several customizable modes, including MyMode and Z-Mode. The current mode selected is displayed in the gauge cluster.
Weather mode is intended for slippery conditions, while Tour mode is the default setting for normal driving and is intended for a more comfortable driving experience. Sport mode is intended for spirited driving, such as on a winding, curvy road. Finally, Track mode provides maximum vehicle performance for track day experiences. Check out our previous coverage of the prep needed before taking the new C8 out for race day.
For those drivers that want a little more customization from their 2020 Corvette driver modes, Z-Mode and MyMode provide exactly that. Z-Mode is intended to provide custom settings for spirited driving “with more of a single use application,” whereas MyMode is for setting personal preferences with regard to everyday driving. Both modes allow the user to configure a variety of different settings, including those for the suspension, steering response, engine sound, and more. The configurable settings offered will vary on the trim level and equipment.
