2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Unveiled — 2013 Detroit Auto Show
The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette is already showing itself to be one of the stars of the 2013 Detroit International Auto Show. Chevy has unveiled their fist all new design of the Corvette in 9 years. And with their latest model comes a new area of performance that demands the attention of Chevy’s design team. Fuel economy.
Muscle car enthusiasts having nothing to fear about fuel economy being such a priority in the 2014’s design. The Corvette’s trademarks of a sleek design, a powerful engine, and race car style performance still hold true. The Government’s Increasing standards in both fuel economy and emissions led the car’s chief engineer, Tadge Juechter, to make this statement “There won’t be a Corvette if we don’t care about fuel economy.”
The 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray has a 6.2-liter small-block V-8 with 450 horsepower. That gives the car a 0 – 60 mph time of just under four seconds, making it slightly faster than the current 2013 model.
The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Singray will hit showroom floors this fall. The price of the new Corvette has not yet been announced, but it is expected to be similarly priced to the current Corvette at $49,600.
