Red Cars for the Post-Holiday: Corvette
If you’re thinking about getting yourself something with the Christmas cash you’ve accumulated or which you’ll get by selling all that stuff you weren’t particularly interested in having on eBay, consider the 2014 Corvette Stingray.
After all, not only is it a car that provides 455 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque standard, but for the environmental side of you, who is interested in fuel efficiency, know that if you opt for the seven-speed manual transmission, the Corvette will provide 17 mpg city and 29 mpg highway.
According to Tadge Juechter, Corvette chief engineer, “The 2014 Corvette delivers the fastest acceleration, the most cornering grip, the most track capability, the best braking performance and what we expect to be the best fuel economy ever for a standard Corvette.”
The engineers at Munro & Associates have taken a perfectly sound BMW i3 and taken it apart. Completely apart. And they are impressed with what they’ve discovered about how the EV is engineered.
GM gives its mid-size pickup customers what they’ve been clamoring for, a clean and quiet, high-torque, fuel-efficient diesel.
The 2016 model is all-new. As in platform and everything else. And the platform—which will have global use—was developed in North America.
