2014 Corvette Stingray debuts with rev-matching 7-speed

Lighter, more powerful, and featuring higher tech, Chevrolet’s newest ‘Vette may just be the best ever.

CNET – DETROIT–Chevrolet has pulled the covers back on what is easily the most hotly anticipated (and worst-kept secret) of the 2013 Detroit auto show: the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.

Only three Corvette models have ever borne the name Stingray: the mid-’60s second-generation model, the third-generation car produced through the ’70s and into the ’80s (arguably the most iconic), and now the seventh-generation (C7) 2014 model. Chevrolet states that it’s reviving the name for the 2014 model year because it is the best ‘Vette ever. Well, it’s not like Chevy would claim anything less of its newest halo car, but the automaker does seem to have the numbers to back it up.

The new 6.2-liter, direct-injected V-8 will make an estimated 450 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque. The automaker is estimating a 0-60 time under 4 seconds and over 1G of cornering grip.

Making use of cylinder deactivation technology, Chevrolet is also claiming better fuel economy than any generation of Corvette before it.

Power flows through a seven-speed manual transmission that uses an Active Rev Matching technology similar to that of the Nissan 370Z’s. As the driver moves the shift lever into a gear, the ‘Vette’s computer blips the throttle to match the wheel speed for a smooth ratio change when the clutch pedal is released.
