C8 Corvette Stingray Fuel Economy Revealed

C8 Corvette Fuel Economy

Last Updated on

After what seems like an eternity, Chevrolet has finally released the fuel economy figures for the C8 Corvette Stingray. Equipped with a new powertrain, the C8 Stingray is capable of delivering 15 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. While the city mileage decreases a bit from the C7 version, its highway economy has increased.

Fuel-Efficient

The C8 Corvette Stingray manages these numbers in spite of having a powerful LT2 V8 engine underneath. Given the fact that this monster puts out 495 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque, it is quite an achievement. According to GM Authority, the Stingray will be able to provide a range of 500 miles from an 18.6-gallon fuel tank.

The C8 has been completely redesigned from the ground up. This gave the engineers a lot of room to improve the fuel economy. They made the car lighter and mounted the engine in the middle of the car, resulting in excellent weight distribution. The C8 Corvette will be the first to receive an 8-speed DCT gearbox that will make the power delivery more efficient. Finally, when taking the car slow, you can deactivate cylinders that you don’t need, making the engine consume less gas.

Tip of the iceberg

The C8 Stingray is just the first in a new generation of Chevrolet Corvette that is going to make its way to US showrooms by February. Aside from the Stingray, Chevrolet has also announced the Z06 and E-Ray trims, the latter being a plug-in hybrid that is a first for the series. Although there are no numbers related to its range, it is safe to say it will have a much better fuel economy than the Stingray.

More powerful versions of the LT2 drivetrain will inhabit the lineup. A twin-turbocharged ZR1 trim is assumed to put out as much as 800 hp. Another limited-edition variant, code-named Project Zora, is also said to be in the works. This one will cross the 1,000 hp-mark and be the first hypercar built by Chevrolet.
