With an all-new Z06 supercar version joining the Stingray, there’s a coupe or convertible version of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette to suit a wide range of performance and styling appetites. Whichever flavor you choose, you’ll find the Corvette range to offer some of the very best bang for the buck in the industry.
Styling takes the Corvette in new directions, even if around familiar themes, both inside and out. Sharp lines, crisp angles, and vents aplenty give a definite supercar air to the design that matches the car’s performance. It’s wide, low, and looks fast even at a dead stop. Inside, the Stingray’s design is much improved over the previous generation of the Corvette, and while nothing changes in the standard model for the 2014 model year, it retains its refreshing and surprisingly luxurious look. The Z06 adds to the Stingray’s exterior and interior design with wider fenders, an array of aerodynamic add-ons, and a performance-themed cabin treatment.
Under the hood of the Chevy Corvette Stingray is the same 6.2-liter LT1 V-8 engine introduced last year, still generating the same 455 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. A 7-speed manual transmission is also available, offering an enhanced version of its automatic rev-matching downshift feature for 2014. The new addition to the powertrain is an all-new, in-house designed and built 8-speed automatic transmission with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. The Z06, on the other hand, gets a supercharged LT4 V-8 that’s rated at 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque.
