2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Named North American Car of the Year

For 2014, the Chevy Corvette is all new and available at Freeway Chevy. There are performance upgrades, a nicer interior and an exotic exterior design that heralds in the seventh generation of the Chevrolet Corvette. All of the hard work from the men and women at General Motors has earned the Corvette the coveted North American Car of the Year award.

Raking in 211 points from the 49-member jury, the Corvette virtually swept the competition—and for good reason. While the other two competitors are spectacular cars, they just couldn’t amass the votes to win.

Packing up to 460 horsepower and offering a sub four-second 0-to-60 sprint, the 2014 Corvette is a performance beast. For a mere $52,000, which isn’t chump change, but still cheap, you can have a car that performs against competitors twice its price.

With a seven-speed manual shifting the gears, the Corvette has a top speed of about 190 mph—plenty of speed to have a license or two revoked.

The interior of the 2014 Corvette is where the engineers and designers really excelled.

In the previous-generation Corvette, the interior was a hard sell for many people. When compared to its competitors, the Corvette had the interior of a car 10 years older than it actually was. Cheap plastic pieces were everywhere. The seats were lackluster, and many had a hard time justifying spending money on a car that felt cheap on the inside, regardless of performance.

For 2014, all that has changed. The Corvette has an interior that exudes opulence and functionality. It finally feels like the interior of a true, modern sports car. Soft leather wraps the dash. The seats hold a driver firmly in place and in comfort. The instrument cluster is modern and technologically advanced for the segment.

The exterior is still unmistakably Corvette. While the lines have gotten sharper and the signature, round taillights are now gone, the Corvette looks like a modern sports car all around. It’s a car no longer fit for the retirement community parking lot. Corvette has had a problem with its customers being more from the AARP market, but now they have a car that everyone wants in their driveway.
