Should you find yourself scouring the sports car class for your next vehicular purchase, your chums here at Chase Chevrolet feel you'd likely be well-served by ours, the 2016 Chevy Corvette.
What makes us so sure? The clip below -- a video review of the Corvette from The Fast Lane Car critic Nathan Adlen -- should help spell it out. Have a look and listen right here:
It's at the outset of the Corvette's engine array that you'll find its outstanding entry-level offering, a 6.2-liter V8. Served up standard on the Stingray and Stingray Z51 trims, this eight-banger emits an extraordinary 455 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. A seven-speed manual transmission is this drivetrain's default, while an eight-speed automatic is available as an option.
And yet, for all the power it packs, the base V8 still somehow manages to remain remarkably fuel-efficient, with EPA estimates checking in at 21 mpg combined (17 city/29 highway) when had with the manual gearbox.
