2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible
- March 8, 2013 - BRADENTON, Fla. --
One of the features of the 83rd annual Geneva Auto Show in Switzerland was the General Motors Co. unveiling of the new 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible. Expected to arrive at Cox Chevrolet in Bradenton, FL (http://www.coxchevy.com/
fl/) sometime around August or September of 2013, the 2014 Stingray Convertible features a newly redesigned electronic soft top that can be lowered remotely using the car’s key fob. On the road, the new top can be opened and closed at speeds of up to 50 mph.
The Corvette Stingray’s signature speed is back and faster than ever, as the 2014 model looks to feature an all-new small-block LT1 6.2L V8 engine that produces an exhilarating 450 hp and can move from 0-60 mph in less than 4 seconds.
The new Corvette Stingray Convertible (http://www.coxchevy.com/
stingray/) also features a completely redesigned exterior that pays homage to the Corvette’s long and distinguished past as the flagship of American sports cars. However, there are also several innovative new design features that distinguish the new model from its predecessors, including flashy new taillights that give the 2014 Stingray a more assertive and aggressive look than ever before.
The Stingray moniker has a distinctive history going back to a 1959 racecar. It was subsequently used for the second generation of Corvette models from 1963-1967. This is the first time in over forty years that GM and Chevy have decided to label the Corvette with this landmark title, which was last used for the third generation of Corvettes, which ran from 1968-1982. The resurrection of the coveted Stingray nameplate demanded an innovative design for this seventh generation, and the Geneva crowd agreed that Chevy had succeeded.
The 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible is expected to arrive at Cox Chevy in Bradenton some time between the end of the third quarter and beginning of the fourth quarter of 2013. Cox Chevy has the entire current 2013 Chevy lineup (http://www.coxchevy.com/new-vehicles/
) in stock today, along with an extensive pre-owned inventory, available financing offers, and a state-of-the-
art service center. Cox Chevy is located at 2900 Cortez Road West in Bradenton, Florida.Photo:
