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.

2014 Nissan Pathfinder 4WD Platinum Test Drive

Oct 1 2014 8:45pm CDT | Source: autoMedia.com

You don’t bring a 2014 Nissan Pathfinder to Manhattan Beach with any notion of snapping necks as people stroll down the sleepy, but loaded SoCal community. Members of both the Los Angeles Lakers and Kings are notorious for making their homes here, and the Pathfinder that I’m driving passes more than a few cars with winged “B” insignias on their hood. But when I pull up to a friend’s house just steps away from the famous pier, and he hop ...

Road Test: In The Age of the C7 Corvette, Is There A Future For The Dodge Viper?

Sep 25 2014 8:47pm CDT | Source: autoMedia.com

Not even two years since it began production, the biggest news we’ve heard about the latest version of the venerable Dodge Viper (or, formerly, SRT Viper) is that Chrysler decided to slash its price by $15,000 due to low sales; certainly not the splash they hoped to make after resurrecting the serpent after a three-year hiatus. A lower price, now starting at $86,880, should help, but sales will still be an uphill battle ...

Chevrolet Corvette C7 Stingray By GeigerCars

Sep 22 2014 4:00am CDT | Source: Top Speed

It’s no secret the Corvette C7 Stingray is a hot performer. With its 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque, the C7 launches itself to 60 mph in a very respectable 3.9 seconds. Its handling is spectacular too, thanks in part to the Magnetic Ride Control shocks and other Z51-specific parts. However, improvements can always be made.That’s where one tuner company based in Germany steps in. GeigerCars has develo ...

GM to issue stop-sale, two recalls for 2015 Corvette Stingray

Sep 12 2014 8:50am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

GM is on the cusp of issuing two separate recalls for the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. After a month without recalls, the two hiccups are centred over problems with the Corvette’s airbags and parking brake cables. According to a GM spokesman via Automotive News, roughly 2,800 cars are affected and “very few” customers have taken delivery of the cars. The airbag recall covers 2,000 cars, most of which are still at the fact ...

Car and Driver uncovers trouble with Corvette Stingray's LT1 V8

Sep 8 2014 12:40pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

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 publication's Corvette Stingray long-term tester blew out its LT1 ...
