Few are surprised that the 2014 Corvette Stingray is AutoGuide's 2014 Reader's Choice Car of the Year. The honor is the result of a poll of readers along with 30 million AutoGuide forum members. The publication's editors agree, giving the 2014 Corvette high marks in nearly every category, ranging from performance to appearance.
With the return of the Stingray moniker, the 2014 Corvette reminds many of why they fell in love with the model in the first place. In fact, many enthusiasts herald the debut of the model as the return of Americana in automobile form. A newly refined interior, generous cargo space, and the latest technical and electronic features mated to plenty of power and performance only serve to augment the car's appeal. With a choice of automatic or six-speed manual transmissions, the 2014 Corvette handles exceptionally well according to those invited to test drive it. An all-aluminum frame is standard on all versions of the car. The chassis is composed of five sections of hydrofoam aluminum, extruded aluminum and cast aluminum, and each section is formed for a particular purpose. The car's exterior bodywork is race-tested, and every vent and scoop serves a particular function, enabling the Corvette to reach unprecedented speeds.
From the perspective of heritage and styling, the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is unique among vehicles on the market. It trumps other cars in its class, including the Porsche 911 Carrera and SRT Viper, in nearly every category according to auto reviewers. Reviews of the vehicle indicate driving one incites a sense of euphoria.
