The experts at Edmunds.com get to drive some of the world’s most exciting new vehicles, but when it comes down to which ones they’d actually pay to own themselves, the choices are limited to only the best of the best—like the 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray.
Chevrolet’s homegrown high-performer was named “Best Sports Car” in a recent Edmunds.com ranking of the “Best Vehicles You Can Buy” in America. The new study had a simple goal of finding “the vehicles we think are the best, period,” and led to some loud exclamations from the judges.
Among the loudest, of course, were for the 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray, which earned praise like:
- “The all-new C7 Corvette has been transformed into a 100-percent genuine, world-class sports car that looks great, goes like hell and is built to a standard that now warrants its price.”
- “It feels like a real car, and a damn good one.”
- “We were expecting the C7 to put down great instrumented numbers at a test track because the Corvette always has. Now, however, it’s just as brilliant away from the track.”
Fans of the 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray will be able to judge that brilliance for themselves in the near future, with the car on its way to dealerships now, with standard features like a 6.2-liter V-8 engine that makes 455 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque right out of the gate. That makes it the most powerful entry Corvette yet, but the Stingray also rings up EPA grades that can reach 29 mpg highway and boasts a handcrafted interior packed with cutting-edge technologies.
It’s an award-winning package that will be available from $51,000 at select Chevy dealerships across the country.
