Chevrolet has officially revealed the all-new 2014 Corvette Stingray on its premiere debut earlier this year at the 2013 Detroit International Auto Show in January.
The C7 Stingray coupe brings an all-new 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine that is expected to develop up to 450 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque, quite impressive. While the EPA-estimated fuel economy exceeds the current model, around 26 mpg.
GM says that the new V8 engine is powered by some advanced technology, including continuously variable valve timing, direct injection, active fuel management and advanced combustion system. This allows the seventh-generation Corvette to sprint from 0-60 mph in less than 4.0 seconds (under).
Speaking of design, the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette has a good enough design than the previous generation, with some evolution applied to the car as you can see it on the front end. More handsome, stronger and bolder, maybe that’s what we can say about the latest Stingray design.
No doubt, GM has been using an all-new lightweight materials for the Corvette C7, including a removable roof panel and carbon fiber hood. One example of design changes on the front end is a long ventilated hood featuring carbon fiber. Anyway, the exterior has been getting a lot of changes.
Let’s go to the interior! The seventh-generation Stingray benefit from significant changes in its interior. One example is the use of high-quality materials inside the cabin such as aluminum & hand-wrapped leather materials, real carbon fiber and lightweight magnesium frame.
Speaking about release date, GM has officially announced that the 2014 Corvette Stingray will go on sale across the U.S. dealers in the third quarter of this year. While sales for the global market will begin later this year, especially for both models – coupe and convertible. The official pricing information will be announced closer to the release date.
