2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Named Best Car in Detroit, Silverado Named Best Truck

The Detroit Free Press has announced that they have chosen the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray as their Car of the Year while the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado took the top honors for the truck and SUV segment from the Motor City newspaper.

While high price, high performance and relatively low volume sports cars are usually looked over during award balloting, the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has proven to have such a tremendous impact on the automotive world that makes it hard to ignore. The 2014 Corvette Stingray is the most powerful and most efficient “base” Corvette of all time and considering that it will crush cars that cost a great deal more – the C7 is a car worthy of taking major honors around the auto industry. Considering that 2014 marks just the 6th time in over a half century that the Corvette has been fully refreshed, it was a big deal around the Motor City and with the C7 Stingray making such a big splash, it doesn’t come as any surprise to me that the Detroit Free Press picked the new Corvette as their Car of the Year. To win the 2014 Detroit Free Press Car of the Year, the Corvette Stingray beat the 2014 Cadillac CTS and the new Mazda 6.
