2014 Corvette Stingray Officially Rated at 29 MPG
The new figures represent an improvement of 11 percent in fuel economy over the sixth-generation Corvette, which offers 26 mpg highway and 16 mpg city. In fact, Chevy claims the 2014 Corvette can do 30 miles per gallon when used in Eco mode, with highway mpg down to 28 when in Tour mode. Even though few customers really think about fuel economy when buying a Corvette, Chevrolet claims the C7 Stingray is the most fuel efficient sportscar on the market, surpassing the Porsche Carrera S, the Jaguar F-Type S or the Audi R8 V10.
EPA estimates for the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray with a six-speed automatic transmission have yet to be revealed, but Chevrolet says they will be finalized soon.
"The Corvette Stingray establishes the benchmark for modern performance cars by using technologies to deliver more performance and more miles per gallon," said Tadge Juechter, executive chief engineer for the Corvette. "We expect more and more performance cars will follow Corvette's example."
