The honors continue to roll in for the seventh generation Corvette Stingray.
The latest came last week during the Chicago Auto Show, and Tim Mahoney, Chief Marketing Officer, Global Chevrolet, called it “a fabulous award and one that we are exceptionally proud to call our own.”
Mahoney was referring to the Stingray’s choice this week as MotorWeek’s “Best of the Year” 2014 Drivers’ Choice Award winner for delivering exotic performance at far less than an exotic price.
“The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is an amazing effort at an amazingly affordable price,” MotorWeek host John Davis said. “It looks great from every angle, and is a total high performance package that is truly world class. Nothing is left out – from track-ready features, to impressive driver comfort, to the kind of fuel economy that is the envy of the sports car world.”
The awards rank among the auto industry’s most coveted honor.
“With MotorWeek’s longstanding reputation for representing the pulse of the consumer and best market choices, Chevrolet is honored and delighted to be the recipient of the Drivers’ Choice, Best of the Year, 2014 with the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray,” Mahoney said.
MotorWeek ranks vehicles each year in 13 lifestyle categories, with the Stingray also earning “Best Sports Performance Car” honors, in addition to being judged the best overall among all the winners, which included other impressive names like the Porsche 911, Jaguar F-Type, BMW 4-Series, and Cadillac CTS.
Motorweek.org will feature all Drivers’ Choice winners, which will also be on a special episode (No. 3323) of MotorWeek on public television stations beginning Feb. 8 and on the Velocity network beginning Feb. 18.
MotorWeek and the 2014 Driver’s Choice Awards are nationally sponsored by RockAuto, Tire Rack, and DieHard.
