MotorWeek names the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray as its "Best of the Year" 2014 Drivers' Choice Award winner for delivering an exotic performance, for far less than an exotic price. The Drivers' Choice Awards, among the auto industry's most coveted honor, announces the awards annually at the Chicago Auto Show. The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray stood out amongst competition for its eye catching exterior design, high tech substances, honest quality and lofty performance.
"With MotorWeek's longstanding reputation for representing the pulse of the consumer and best market choices, Chevrolet is honored and delighted to be the recipient of the Drivers' Choice, Best of the Year, 2014 with the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray," said Tim Mahoney, chief arketing officer, Global Chevrolet. "This is a fabulous award and one that we are exceptionally proud to call our own."
"The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is an amazing effort at an amazingly affordable price," said MotorWeek host John Davis. "It looks great from every angle, and is a total high performance package that is truly world class. Nothing is left out - from track-ready features, to impressive driver comfort, to the kind of fuel economy that is the envy of the sports car world."
Recognized as the best overall among winners in 13 lifestyle categories, the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray also won as "Best Sport Performance Car." All Drivers' Choice winners are featured on Motorweek.org, as well as on a special episode (#3323) of MotorWeek airing on public television stations beginning February 8, 2014, and on cable's Velocity beginning Feb. 18, 2014.
