2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Fuel Economy Ratings Announced
If the driver chooses to operate the new Corvette Stingray in a special Eco driving mode, which activates the engine's fuel-saving Active Fuel Management system, the car will get 30 mpg on the highway. Active Fuel Management allows the engine to operate on just 4 of its 8 cylinders under low driving load conditions, such as when cruising on the highway, in order to conserve gas.
Official mileage ratings for the 2014 Corvette's optional 6-speed automatic transmission are yet to be finalized. However, Chevrolet notes that with this transmission the Active Fuel Management system is engaged until the driver operates the shift paddles to execute manual gear changes.
Among sports cars, the 2014 Corvette Stingray is one of the most fuel-efficient models driving enthusiasts can buy. Other sports cars that get more than 30 mpg on the highway are significantly less powerful, and the new Corvette is more fuel efficient on the open road than a Mazda MX-5 Miata.
