Seventh Generation: 2014 Corvette Stingray
The latest generation Corvette Stingray debuted as a 2014 model with the return of the Stingray name, once again pushing the design and performance windows to create the top performance Corvette to date. Built on an all-new lightweight aluminum frame, the 2014 Corvette Stingray is powered by a new LT1 6.2-liter small block V8 engine that produces 455 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque combined with a new 7-speed manual transmission with Active Rev Matching or a 6-speed automatic with paddle shifters. Offered in both coupe and convertible versions, a carbon fiber hood is standard, and a removable carbon fiber roof panel is standard for coupes with composite fenders, doors and rear quarter panels. A 5-mode drive selector adjusts 12 vehicle attributes to the driver’s preferences, and an available Z51 Performance package includes an electronic limited-slip differential, dry-sump oil system, brake cooling, differential cooling, transmission cooling, upgraded wheels, performance tires, upgraded brakes and an aero package to improve high-speed stability.
