Under 1,500 Miles, 2014 Corvette Stingray Packs a Wallop

The Chevrolet Corvette has such a long history that it has become a polarizing car. Some people love it no matter what, like voting down the party line. Other drivers deride the car the same way, dismissing with a wave even the most impressive performance numbers.


But the 2014 Corvette Stingray is different. Some traditional Corvette aficionados will not like the new external styling cues, but Chevy is seeking to expand the Corvette demographic. For those who would never consider a Corvette, the structural changes, power delivery, and interior experience make a compelling case for a closer look.


As the first of the C7 Corvettes, this is the first year of radical departure from rounded taillights. Makes you look twice, doesn't it? The interior is also improved, with seats that offer real support and comfort, and a high-tech cockpit that mixes a multi-adjustable Head-Up Display with LCD gauges. The frame is an entirely new design of aluminum and the same for coupes and convertibles. Five drive modes, each with twelve customizable performance parameters will make you think you should get paid to drive.


The 2014 Stingray comes with two transmissions, a seven speed manual that most reviewers found confusing in the top gears--many shifts from fourth to seventh then third instead of fifth. This Corvette, however, comes with a perfectly capable six speed automatic transmission and paddles for manual shifting, if you insist.


The list of features goes on, which you can see below. Read on, of course, but the best way to proceed is to seat yourself behind the wheel, listen to the exhaust or the Bose audio system, and feel the force when you mash the pedal. By the way, you're going to attract some attention. Are you ready for that? If so, give us a call: (901) 850-0507.
