For the second consecutive year, the Chevrolet Corvette has made Edmunds.com most popular list which based on searches during the first 10 months of 2014. Joining the Corvette in the honor are six other Chevrolets including the Impala, Camaro, Traverse, Tahoe, Colorado and the Silverado 1500.
The new Corvette Stingray has captured a lot of awards since Chevrolet introduced it in 2013.
But here comes a first. The 2015 Stingray has just captured an award that no other Corvette – well, no other car ever, for that matter – has won because it’s the first time Business Insider has named a Car of the Year.
As if the exotic styling, powerhouse performance, and impressive interior weren’t enough to convince you to buy a new Corvette Stingray, here’s another more practical reason.
The 2014 Corvette Stingray Coupe 1LT Automatic finished No. 1 for retaining the most value among all-new or heavily revised 2014 Model Year mainstream vehicles.
That’s the word from NADA Used Car Guide analysts in their final vehicle retention value report for 2014.
And it wasn’t even close.
Well that didn’t take long.
The National Corvette Museum’s Motorsports Park has only officially been open for about four months in 2014, but that was long enough for the racing industry to take notice of the new race track in Bowling Green, KY.
At the Performance Racing Industry’s trade show in Indianapolis, the NCM Motorsports Park was recognized with the “Outstanding Facility of the Year” award which was presented by the the National Speedway Directory and Track Guide.
For the second year in a row, a Corvette has taken a TopSpeed Car of the Year award.
A year ago, it was the 2014 Corvette Stingray that was named the TopSpeed Car of the Year.
This time around, TopSpeed broke its awards down into three categories, and the 2015 Corvette Z06 was named Performance Car of the Year.
We think Top Gear made the right call in calling the Corvette Z06 their ‘Muscle Car of the Year’ (even though it’s a sports car, not a muscle car). Check out this beautiful test drive of the Z06 which includes a ride through the Tail of the Dragon at Deals Gap.
Top Gear selected the 2015 Corvette as the magazine’s 2015 “Muscle Car of the Year”. The editors said “Go to the outer edge of your personal comfort zone, and the Z06 will meet you there. It’ll trade blows with the best that AMG, BMW, Ferrari or Porsche has to offer, on the trickiest tracks in the world. It’ll make you feel like a million dollars, but costs a fraction of that. America has a new hero.”

Jeremy Clarkson, one of the co-hosts of the BBC’s Top Gear auto show, has turned in his choice for the 2014 Car of the Year and it’s none other than the 2014 Corvette Stingray. We’ve come along way from the days when America’s Sports Car was nothing but a punching bag (or a literal target) for the British auto critic. The choice for the 2014 Car of the Year was announced in the magazine version of Top Gear in their annual awards issue which is out now.
The new Corvette Stingray has been racking up award after award in the past couple of years.
Now the city where the seventh-generation Chevrolet sports car is assembled is finally getting some much-deserved recognition, too.
National Geographic has named Bowling Green, Ky., a Top 10 All-American City in its new book World’s Best Cities: Celebrating 220 Great Destinations because of the Corvette-related attractions there, including the Corvette Assembly Plant, National Corvette Museum, and NCM Motorsports Park.
