The official EPA fuel economy ratings for the new generation of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray have been officially announced.
The new generation of the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is truly an impressive vehicle and it has managed to make everyone forget about the new SRT Viper, but when it comes to fuel efficiency, in the official EPA figures, will the sports car still be appreciated? Well, in short, yes, because the automatic Corvette C7 Stingray is now rated at 16 / 28 mpg in city / highway. This is a significant improvement compared to the previous 15 / 25 mpg of the 2013 model year.
Future owners of the manual transmission equipped version of the new Chevrolet Corvette C7 Stingray will get to enjoy their rides more with a tank of fuel because the official fuel economy ratings for this version have been set at 17 / 29 mpg in city / highway. The figures transform the new Corvette Stingray into a desirable car when we think that the monster powering it is a 6.2 liter V8, which is good for 450 HP and 450 lb-ft of torque. The automatic transmission has 8 gears while the manual has 7 speeds.
