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.

Video: 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Runs The Quarter Mile in 10.8 Seconds

Jul 11 2014 10:00am CDT | Source: Top Speed

Ladies and gentlemen, the 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat SRT, the most powerful muscle car ever built, has just been certified as the fastest, factory-built muscle car ever created. In a test conducted by Dodge and supervised by the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA), the Challenger Hellcat ran the quarter-mile in 11.2 seconds at 125 mph. That makes the 707-horsepower Mopar exactly one second quicker than a stock 2014 Corvette Stingray with an automatic and enables its full on bragging rights ...

1963 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Appreciation

Jun 18 2014 8:55pm CDT | Source: autoMedia.com

When one hears the name Corvette, the first assumption would be to think of the 1963 Corvette Stingray, which embodies the decades long history of the American sports car.

With a front engine, rear-wheel drive layout and fiberglass body, the Corvette had all of the basic components to make it a sports car. The only thing left would be an engine, which would of course ha ...

It’s no mystery that the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor is the most powerful and skillful factory-built pickup truck you can buy nowadays. Its 6.2-liter, V-8 mill churns 411 horsepower and 434 pound-feet, while its hardcore underpinnings enable it to take on just about any terrain. It’s the perfect machine, right?Well, not quite. Not as long as tuning shops like Hennessey Performance and Roush are turning them into more powerful and more capable vehicles. We can’ ...
