The North American based automaker Chevrolet has recently announced the official fuel economy figures of the brand new Corvette Stingray.
The new generation of the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray manages to end up in our news once again, after it was officially unveiled in its two body styles, coupe and convertible, over these past few months, this time with the help of the fuel economy figures. According to the car manufacturer, the new sports car generation can return 17 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway with the seven-speed manual transmission, 28 mpg in Tour mode and even 30 mpg when in Eco mode with the cylinder deactivation system.
“The Corvette Stingray establishes the benchmark for modern performance cars by using technologies to deliver more performance and more miles per gallon. We expect more and more performance cars will follow Corvette’s example”, said the executive chief engineer for Corvette, Tadge Juechter.
As a quick reminder, the new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is powered, in its two body styles, by the same 6.2 liter LT1 V8 engine, which is good for 455 HP (335 kW), at 6,000 rpm, and 623 Nm (460 lb-ft), available at 4,600 rpm. The Convertible is getting 450 HP (331 kW) at 6,000 rpm and 609 Nm of torque (450 lb-ft), at 4,600 rpm. The unit is mated to a seven-speed manual transmission with Active Rev Match, sending power to the rear-wheel drive.
