2014 Chevrolet C7 Corvette Concept Release Date
2014 Chevrolet C7 Corvette You may think that southeast Michigan, home to General Motors’ proving ground in Milford, gets plenty cold enough in winter. Yet for true cold-weather testing, GM engineers subjected the next-generation 2014 Chevrolet C7 Corvette to the extreme chill of northern Canada. That gave our spy photographers a chance to snap photos of this prototype version of the 2014 Chevrolet C7 Corvette as it is readied for production.
The C7 will likely come equipped with GM’s new 5.5L small block V8, featuring a number of technical advancements, including direct-injection and a new combustion system. Power for the new engine will likely total 440 horsepower, which would be a slight improvement over the 436 horsepower currently available in the C6 Corvette. However, thanks to the 5.5L’s smaller size and its advanced features, expect a noticeable jump in overall fuel economy – improving on the C6’s already impressive 26 mpg highway rating.
With an on-sale date projected somewhere in mid-2013, the C7 is almost certain to make its official debut during the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. Pricing is expected to remain close to the $50,500 base price of the current model.
