We'd be hard-pressed to find anyone who doesn't agree that pound for pound and dollar for dollar, the Corvette Stingray offers the most performance bang for your buck. Chevrolet completely redesigned it for 2014, and it's a knockout. No matter the system or feature, Chevrolet improved it. More aggressive acceleration? Check. Better handling? Check. Better braking? Check. More refined cabin? Check. Improved fuel economy? Check. And on and on it goes. Thrust comes from a 455-horsepower, 6.2-liter V-8, passed through a six-speed, driver-shiftable automatic transmission turning the rear wheels. Chevrolet inserted a lot of aluminum among the suspension bits to add strength and reduce weight. Supportive big seats and scads of legroom make its cabin welcoming even for larger drivers. Lots of technology, too.
