What's New With Slingshot

With 2020 comes the best Slingshot yet! The all-new 2020 comes with 70% new content versus previous generations, including AutoDrive transmission, a new Prostar 2.0L Engine, brand new interior and exterior styling, all new drive modes, and much more.

What Else Is New for 2020

AutoDrive Transmission

Taking center stage of the 2020 lineup is Slingshot’s AutoDrive, a hydraulically actuated automated manual five-speed synchromesh transmission. With no clutch or manual shifting necessary, drivers can operate the 2020 Slingshot lineup as easily and quickly as any other vehicle with a standard automatic transmission.  For those who prefer to handle their own shifting, the Slingshot R is available with AutoDrive or manual transmission.

Slingshot's New Heart: ProStar 2.0L DOHC 4 Cylinder Engine

Tuned to perfection and put through an exhaustive track and on-road testing program to ensure quality and reliability, the ProStar 2.0L Engine was designed to enhance an already incredible on-road experience. This ingeniuosly engineered engine has low rotational inertia making it hungry to rev up to its 8500 RPM redline and give you the instant thrill of 203HP (R model).

Redesigned Cockpit

A new premium leather-wrapped, flat-bottom steering wheel with multi-function controls and integrated cruise control immediately redefines the personal connection between the driver and the vehicle. New adjustable ambient airflow vents improve airflow and increase comfort for drivers and passengers during weekend trips or daily adventures. All 2020 Slingshots come standard with a new infotainment system with a seven-inch display and Ride Command®  technology that offers an improved viewing angle, standard back up camera, and even brighter display screen for easy viewing in broad daylight. Listen to your favorite music with crystal-clear audio thanks to the 100-watt Rockford Fosgate® audio system.

Distinctive Exterior

Whether you're going 10 mph or 60 mph, the new Rockford Fosgate audio system will keep your tunes playing loud and clear. The newly designed speaker pods provide extra comfort and leg room, in dash tweeters provide clear audio at any speed, and easy to install, plug-and-play amplifiers help you turn up the volume. Also new this year to help you stay focused on the road is Apple CarPlay®. Connect your iPhone to CarPlay® to get turn-by-turn directions, make calls, send and receive messages, listen to music, and more.

Drive Modes

Whether you’re cruising around the city, or out on the open road, there’s a drive mode for you. The option to choose between two drive modes, Comfort and Slingshot mode.
