Tonight, the 2014 Chevrolet Stingray made its Canadian debut at an exclusive premiere event on the eve of the Canadian International Auto Show. The seventh generation Corvette is redefining modern performance and only a Corvette with the perfect balance of technology, design and performance can wear the iconic Stingray designation.
"The Corvette is a vehicle that evokes a truly passionate response from customers," said Kevin Williams, president and managing director, General Motors of Canada. "For 60 years Corvette has represented the state-of-the-art in performance cars. Everything it stands for has captured the imagination of hundreds of thousands of car lovers and enthusiasts around the globe."
The new Corvette couldn't be a Stingray unless the new car truly lived up to the legacy. The result is a new Corvette Stingray that breaks from tradition, while remaining instantly recognizable as a Corvette the world over.
The 2014 Corvette Stingray is the most powerful standard model ever, with an estimated 450 horsepower (335 kW) and 450 lb.-ft. of torque (610 Nm). It is also the most capable standard model ever, able to accelerate from 0-60 in less than four seconds and achieve more than 1g in cornering grip. It is expected to be the most fuel-efficient Corvette, exceeding the EPA-estimated 26 mpg of the current model.
The 2014 Corvette delivers the fastest acceleration, the most cornering grip, the most track capability, the best braking performance and what we expect to be the best fuel efficiency ever for a standard Corvette. It incorporates an all-new frame structure and chassis, a new powertrain and supporting technologies, as well as completely new exterior and interior designs. The result is better performance by every measure.
The 2014 Corvette Stingray coupe goes on sale in the third quarter of 2013.
