The 2014 Corvette has finally been revealed – love it or hate it the car has undergone quite a change! This C7 Corvette is built to go faster and use less fuel, be more comfortable and more dangerous on the track, run with the exotics and spend thousands less. What is even more interesting is the famed “Stingray” name has been brought back to the Corvette! The Stingray name has not seen a Corvette since 1976.
The new Corvette C7 has some pretty dramatic changes to it. The car features many more pronounced creases, a much more aggressive front fascia along with numerous functioning vents all over the car. The headlamps are also much more detailed than ever before, featuring HID lights along with a LED lights running down the side of the headlamps.
The 2014 Corvette Stingray will also feature the new generation 6.2L small block V8 with the direct fuel injection and active fuel management technology. This motor will crank out 450hp and 450 lb-ft of torque. This is expected to move the new Corvette from 0 to 60 in less than 4 seconds while still providing up to 30 mpg on the highway when cruising.
The interior of the new Corvette was not forgotten either. It has been completely redesigned with premium materials, including carbon fiber, leather, and aluminum. The seats are heated and cooled with side bolsters to hold the driver and passenger firmly in! The car features two 8-inch video displays. One of them behind the steering when in the gauge cluster, and then another on the center stack.
One question that a bunch of people will be asking is – how much? We do not actually have that information yet. Chevrolet is being hush about that, but they are saying that if you can afford the current model C6 Corvette, then you can afford a new C7.
