And while you won’t find deep discounts on the all-new-for-2020 mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette C8, our No. 2 story of the week makes a strong case for why you could do worse than hand over your federal diplomas for this American icon. In addition to its legitimately reasonable-for-what-you-get starting price under 60 stacks, the blue-collar supercar — as reviewer Aaron Bragman explains in his story — is shockingly livable as a daily driver, boasting formidable cabin comfort, a calm and quiet ride, and exceptional gas mileage.

Also popular this week was the unveiling of the subtly redesigned 2021 Ford F-150 pickup truck. You’ll have to squint hard to detect physical changes to the exterior design, but the big news lies in the much-needed interior upgrade, all-new hybrid variant and available onboard power generator. Our coverage of the overhauled F-150 ranks at both No. 3 and No. 10 among the week’s most popular headlines, but for a comprehensive preview on America’s best-selling truck (and vehicle overall), be sure to pop over to sister site
