EPA Offers Official Fuel Efficiency Ratings for Automatic Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

Manual Stingray is more fuel efficient than the automatic

The EPA recently unveiled the economy estimates for the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray featuring the six-speed automatic transmission. The vehicle was reportedly tested with the required premium fuel. The EPA estimates that the vehicle will be able to get 16 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on highway.

new ratings are a slight bump from the ratings given to the 2013 model at 15 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on highway. The numbers for the automatic 2014 Stingray are a bit lower than the numbers for the manual transmission version. The seven-speed manual Stingray has EPA ratings of 17 mpg in the city and 29 MPG on the highway.

Rumors continue to persist that the aging six-speed automatic will be replaced by eight-speed automatic transmission in the future. No matter which transmission the new Stingray is equipped with, the car features a 455 hp 6.2-liter V8 with 460 pound-foot of torque.

Filed under: Coupe, Performance, Chevrolet There are two kinds of supercars: those made by niche manufacturers and those made by mainstream ones. The niche supercars tend to be a rarer and more exotic sight, but some buyers opt for more mainstream supercars because, for one reason at least, they'll be more reliable. Right? That's not always the case, as Car and Driver recently found out. The public ...
