Expert Quotes:

Manual: 17 mpg city, 29 mpg highway, 21 mpg combined.
EPA

Automatic: 16 mpg city, 28 mpg highway, 20 mpg combined.

The new manual uses the same gear ratios as the previous car, with the 7th gear acting as a tall cruising gear to incrementally improve fuel economy.
Edmunds



For the time being, there are only two available versions of the Corvette Stingray for EPA gas mileage purposes: the seven-speed manual and the six-speed automatic.

If you're familiar with the last-generation Corvette, you know it can get surprisingly good fuel economy thanks to plenty of available torque and tall gearing. The new LT1-powered manual-transmission Corvette Stingray does even better, scoring 17 mpg city and 29 mpg highway (30 mpg with the built-in "Eco" mode) for 21 mpg combined; the automatic scores 16/28 mpg for 20 mpg combined.

While those figures won't win any Prius-loving hearts, they are shockingly good in light of the 455-horsepower output of the standard Stingray. In fact, it's likely the most efficient car on the market in terms of mpg-per-horsepower.

Conclusion

It's no hybrid, but considering its performance, the 2014 Corvette Stingray is one of the greenest cars available.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
