Return of the Stingray: The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette

Chevrolet is redefining modern performance with the all-new Corvette Stingray. And only a Corvette with the perfect balance of technology, design and performance can wear the iconic Stingray designation.

The 2014 Corvette Stingray is the most powerful standard Corvette model ever, with an estimated 450 horsepower (335 kW) and 450 lb.-ft. of torque (610 Nm). It is also the most capable standard Corvette model ever, able to accelerate from 0-60 in less than four seconds and achieve more than 1g in cornering grip.

The new Corvette Stingray is expected to improve upon the current model’s fuel economy of EPA highway fuel economy estimate of 26 mpg (13.6L/100km).

“Like the ’63 Sting Ray, the best Corvettes embodied performance leadership, delivering cutting-edge technologies, breathtaking design and awe-inspiring driving experiences,” said General Motors North America President Mark Reuss. “The all-new Corvette goes farther than ever, thanks to today’s advancements in design, technology and engineering.”

The all-new Corvette Stingray shares only two parts with the previous-generation Corvette. It incorporates an all-new frame structure and chassis, a new powertrain and supporting technologies, and a completely new exterior and interior designs.

The Stingray Coupe and Convertible share identical chassis tuning and performance technologies. They also share nearly-identical curb weights, as the only structural changes for the convertible model are limited to accommodations for the folding top and repositioned safety belt mounts.  Via GM
