With the standard exhaust, the Stingray is SAE-certified at 455 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. Fuel efficiency is expected to exceed 26 mpg on the highway.
“The 2014 Corvette Stingray’s LT1 engine is a triumph of advanced technology, delivering more power and torque than ever before with greater efficiency,” said Jordan Lee, Small Block chief engineer.
No official performance specs were released, but Chevrolet estimates the Corvette will run from 0 to 60 mph in less than four seconds.
The new LT1 engine’s high output, and high power density and efficiency are due to several advanced technologies, including direct injection, Active Fuel Management and continuously variable valve timing, which support an advanced combustion system.
