The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray was unveiled at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, and since then Corvette enthusiasts have been waiting and anticipating the day they can get their hands on the steering wheel of this newly designed model.
Though the new model mocks the body shape of its predecessors, the exterior is set apart with defined creases, a new fierce front fascia and headlamps, as well as several large vents.
Constructed of carbon fiber, the hood and the roof allow for a larger rear quarter window. And breaking Corvette tradition are the fresh taillights, shaped to say “new corvette.” Every model now comes with an aluminum frame made of five sections for strength. And although it weighs less than older models, it is said to stand a stiffer ground.
Under the hood, the 2014 Chevy Corvette boasts a Gen V small-block 6.2-liter purshrod V-8. GM estimates the engine in base form to make 450 horsepower and 450 lb-ft. These numbers make it the most powerful standard Corvette ever, with a stronger steering system to match. And in the rare chance you may need to stop, the brakes are also improved with larger pads and 35 percent more swept area.
On the standard model, active valves quiet noise during cruising, though a dual-mode system open a wider path for airflow, which increases performance and noise. Transmission options come as a six-speed automatic or seven-speed manual with four shift gates.
This is possibly the most modern and beautiful sports cars on the market. You can go fast and feel out of control, but be in control. The 2014 Corvette Stingray can go 0 to 60 in just 3.9 seconds, and will look amazing while doing it. Not only will you drive fast, you’ll also save more money doing it, with an estimated fuel economy of 26 mpg highway.
The 2014 Chevy Corvette features a Drive Mode Selector on the console allowing you to drive in different types of weather, an eco-mode, a track mode, and a sport mode. The seats and interior were upgraded to be made more functional and supportive, as well as they can now be heated or cooled.
