The last remaining piece of the puzzle that is the 2014 Corvette Stingray appears to be now be in place, fuel economy. According to the EPA's website the 2014 Corvette Stingray will wear fuel economy ratings of 17 mpg city and an impressive 29 mpg highway when equipped with the car's Tremec seven-speed manual transmission.
At 17/29 mpg, the Stingray is seeing a sizable increase from today's Corvette, which is rated at 16/26 mpg when equipped with a six-speed manual transmission. The EPA has not yet published ratings for the Stingray with an automatic transmission.
The Corvette Stingray is powered by an all-new Generation V Small Block V-8. The 6.2-liter LT1 engine generates an estimated 455 horsepower and 450 foot-pounds of torque.
Chevrolet has not confirmed the ratings found on the EPA website.
