The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray gets the North American Car and Truck of the Year awards

Chevy-Corvette

The Chevrolet Corvette (C7) is a sports car being produced by the Chevrolet division of General Motors introduced for the 2014 model year. It is the seventh generation Chevrolet Corvette and the first to bear the Corvette Stingray name since the 1976 third generation model. It is expected to start delivery in the 3rd quarter of 2013. This new version will be available with right-hand drive in the UK market for the first time since Corvette was introduced in 1953.

According to Motor Trend, GM executives have been planning the next-generation (C7) Corvette since 2007, and officially revealed it in Detroit at 7pm EST on January 13, 2013. The car was originally planned for the 2011 model year, but was delayed, and currently expected to arrive in fall 2013 in the 2014 model year. Mid-engine and rear-engine layouts had been considered, but the front-engine, rear-wheel drive (RWD) platform was chosen to keep costs lower. The C7’s all-new LT1 6.2L Small Block V-8 engine is expected to increase the overall speed, while also increasing the overall fuel economy from the previous 2013’s 26 MPG highway rating. This engine develops 455 horsepower (339 kW) and 460 lb.-ft. of torque (624 Nm), which gives it a 0-60 time of 3.8 seconds.

Car and Driver said in April 2011, “We anticipate change in the C7 will be apparent at a glance, even to casual observers … it seems certain the coupe will feature a split rear window – a la the Sting Ray coupe of 1963. In this case it will be an optional feature.” An interior makeover is also expected with upgraded materials with seats comparing favorably with the buckets found in Porsches and BMWs. The front-engine Y platform will be essentially unchanged from the C6 with an improvement expected in steering linearity and feel. The Z06 and ZR1 will continue, while the Grand Sport may become the base model. The C7 should hit dealerships in fall of 2013.

On October 18, 2012, GM made an official news announcement and confirmed that the seventh-generation Chevrolet Corvette will debut on Sunday evening, January 13, 2013, in Detroit. Chevrolet also showed the new Crossed Flags logo for the new 2014 Corvette.

On December 4, 2013, Chevrolet announced that it would be debuting the C7-model Chevrolet Corvette Z06 at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit
