Chevrolet has released new official details on the 2014 Corvette Stingray, which is getting ready to its future customers.
According to the North American based automaker, the new generation of the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is powered, as we already knew, by the LT1 6.2 liter V8 engine, which is producing a total output of 455 HP (339 kW), at 6,000 rpm, and it has a peak torque of 460 lb-ft (624 Nm), available at 4,600 rpm. With the performance exhaust system, the figures stand at 460 HP (343 kW) and 465 lb-ft of torque (630 Nm). These power levels are identical on the Corvette Stingray Convertible too.
The base 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in less than 4 seconds, but the company isn’t saying if the estimate corresponds to the 455 or to the 460 HP version. The average fuel economy is expected to stand at approximately 26 mpg US, which is translated into 9 liters per 100 km. Chevy says that 316 lb-ft of torque (428 Nm) are available from as low as 1,000 rpm, with 90 percent being available between 3,000 rpm and 5,500 rpm. Additional details on the model will be announced close to its launch.
