2014 Corvette Stingray: Strongest Corvette Yet
With the record-setting horsepower and lighter curbweight, the 2014 Corvette Stingray is expected to run 0-60 in less than four seconds.
The high output and high efficiency is due to numerous innovative technologies that have been used in the 2014 Corvette, including direct injection, active fuel management, and continuously variable valve timing.
Active fuel management, also known as cylinder deactivation, is a system that saves fuel by deactivating parts of the engine when demands are low, for example, while cruising the highway or sitting at a stoplight. This marks the first time this type of technology has been used in a Corvette.
