FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CHICAGO (February 6, 2014) – MotorWeek named Chevrolet’s Corvette Stingray as the 2014 Drivers’ Choice Award during the Media Preview of the 2014 Chicago Auto Show. The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray was recognized for its exotic car performance and realistic price. Host, Executive Producer, and Creator of MotorWeek John Davis said this award represents the pinnacle of automobiles.

“On behalf of Chevrolet and Corvette, we are honored to accept the Drivers’ Choice Award,” said Jose Gonzalez, lead designer of the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. “It is amazing to see the fruit of our labor come to fruition and to see General Motors come together through engineering, design and marketing.”

The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is the seventh generation Corvette and boasts a generation-four LT1 V8 engine, magnetic ride suspension and a seven-speed manual transmission. This is the second year that a General Motors vehicle has won the Drivers’ Choice Award. 

The MotorWeek Drivers’ Choice Awards represent the best automotive picks for a range of lifestyles. The editorial staff selects the best vehicle in every segment, including cars, trucks and utility vehicles, based on evaluations of performance, technology, practicality, fuel efficiency and dollar value.
