The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray gets 30mpg!

As the release date for the new Corvette Stingray comes closer more interesting news is released about the vehicle. The first announcement was that the C7 would be priced at an enticing $51,995, later Chevrolet went on to say that the LT1 V8 will generate 455-horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque; however the most perplexing piece of the new Corvette puzzle is the fuel economy

When you go in to buy a Corvette you understand that it is not a Prius, it will not give the same mileage. Recently though the last few models have offered extremely good economy considering their racing pedigree. The new Stingray will really set the benchmark for fuel economy in performance cars, giving figures of up to 30mpg while being driven in Eco Mode according to sources from AutoBlog. That's an 11% increase then over the previous Corvette C6. EPA window sticker ratings will be 17 miles per gallon in the city and 29 mpg highway when equipped with the standard seven-speed manual gearbox, with the latter figure representing something of an average between the 28 mpg when the car is in Tour mode and the 30 mpg when it is in Eco mode using cylinder deactivation. 

This proves to be a big win for the Corvette due to its competitors having such poor ratings with cars in the same category. This shows that sports cars will not only be driven by the rich and famous but the common man will be able to drive such cars due to their feasible fuel costs.
