Subscribe today for all the latest reviews!
America's sports car finally gets the redesign it deserves... seductive
style, updated technology, and [finally] a high-quality interior elevate
the C7 Corvette into this time period. Combined with the orgasmic rumble
from the performance Exhaust and
you've got the makings of a true track toy you can use for that Sunday
morning joy ride. Just be sure to go for the 7-speed manual until the new
8-speed automatic becomes available.
► 2014 Chevrolet Corvette PRODUCTION
owling Green Assembly has produced approximately 1,000 Corvette Stingrays
for customer deliveries. Most of these vehicles are expected to be
delivered to dealers within the next few weeks. To expedite delivery,
vehicles may be shipped out of build sequence, which is a normal part of
any new vehicle launch.
The Bowling Green facility underwent a $131-million upgrade to support
production of the Corvette Stingray, including approximately $52 million
for a new body shop to manufacture the car's all-new aluminum frame
in-house for the first time.
The lightweight aluminum frame is the foundation for the most powerful
standard Corvette ever, with an SAE-certified 455 horsepower (339 kW) and 460
lb-ft of torque (624 Nm) -- and 460 horsepower (343 kW) and 465
lb-ft (630 Nm) with the available performance Exhaust system. It is also the most capable
standard Corvette ever, with Z51-equipped models able to sprint from 0 to
60 in 3.8 seconds, run the quarter-mile in 12 seconds at 119 mph, achieve
1.03g in cornering grip and stop from 60 mph in 107 feet.
Complementing its performance capability with efficiency, the Corvette
Stingray delivers the best fuel economy of any sports car on the market --
an EPA-estimated 17 mpg in city driving and 29 mpg on the highway. No other
car offers more than 455 horsepower and greater than
29 mpg on the highway.
The 2014 Corvette Stingray is the seventh generation of the sports car,
which has been built exclusively at the Bowling Green plant since June
Pricing for the 2014 Corvette Stingray Coupe starts at $51,995 including
destination. The Convertible is priced at $56,995 including destination.
Production of the Stingray Convertible will begin by the end of this year.
