M/T - First Look: 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

Seventh Heaven: Chevy's New 'Vette Has It Where It Counts

From the March 2013 issue of Motor Trend...


Read any review of the Corvette
and you'll see the same list of compliments and complaints:
great performance, terrible interior, or some variation thereof.

The Corvette team has an answer to that,
and it's called the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
making its star turn at the 2013 Detroit auto show.



It starts at the core of the car. Every 2014 Corvette now features an aluminum frame, not just the higher-performance models. Instead of two uniformly thick, hydroformed rails, the chassis is now made up of five sections using hydroformed aluminum, cast aluminum, and extruded aluminum, with each section tailored to its purpose in strength and stiffness. The result is a 99-pound weight reduction with a 57 percent increase in stiffness. That's 60 percent stiffer than today's Z06 with the C7's removable roof in place, and 20 percent stiffer with the roof out. Curb weight should be about the same after accounting for other changes.
