Just the other day, Chevrolet unveiled a video showing the new Corvette Stingray getting some work at its Test Center in Dudenhofen, Germany, and today it’s Consumer Report’s turn to test the new American sports car. So, was Consumer Reports impressed by the all-new `Vette, or was it a big flop?
Well, of course it was thoroughly impressed by the new `Vette!
According to Consumer Reports, "the seventh-generation Chevy Corvette Stingray pushes the iconic sports car to new levels of technology, agility, and refinement."
As a reminder, the new Stingray is powered by an all-new direct-injected, 6.2-liter, V-8 engine that delivers a total of 460 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 465 pound-feet of torque at 4,600 rpm. This output helps sprint the Stingray from 0 to 60 mph in less than four seconds — 3.8 seconds with the Z51 package — and up to an anticipated top speed of 180 to 190 mph.
