Chevrolet Corvette Z06
15 mpg city/ 22 mpg hwy/ 18 mpg combined
Corvette has been the flagship sports car of the Chevrolet lineup since its introduction in 1953, so to say that this Corvette Z06 is the most capable production ‘Vette ever is pretty significant. The Z06 has performance stats and specs that put it in leagues with some of the most exotic sports cars on the planet. Power comes from a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine producing 650 horsepower. Sixty mph comes up in less than 3 seconds, the quarter mile is dispatched in less than 11 seconds and the Z06 can stop from 60 mph in less than 100 feet. Add to that a highway fuel economy rating of 22 mpg and it becomes a very impressive package. With the automatic transmission, highway rating jumps to 23 mpg, but city drops to 13 mpg and combined to 16 mpg.
