The 2014 Stingray packs a powerful wallop for a reasonable price, compared to imported competitors. It is even a big step forward from last year’s Vette. It feels livelier and more athletic. The 6.2-liter V-8 puts out 455 horsepower and is smooth and silky at modest rpm, fierce and powerful when you hammer the throttle. The interior is vastly improved, handling is racetrack sharp, and amazingly, the car is capable of returning 29 miles per gallon on the highway.
