2014 Chevrolet Corvette

It's always big news when there's a new 'Vette in town, and here it is: the all-new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette, also known as the C7. Six illustrious Corvette generations have come before it, and No. 7 is about to blow their doors off. With more quality, technology and scintillating speed than ever before, the latest Corvette is primed to challenge the world's best sports cars. Here are five reasons why the redesigned Corvette is the best yet.

Revolutionary Styling

Recent Corvettes haven't really pushed the envelope aesthetically, but the new C7 gets back to the 'Vette's radical roots. From the exotic headlights to the squared-off taillights, the C7 pushes the boundaries of what a Corvette can be. And don't forget those four exhaust cannons out back -- how cool is that? The C7 is still unmistakably a 'Vette, but it also has a transcendent style that makes it an alluring alternative to 6-figure imports.

Reinvented Interior

Remember how everyone used to complain about the Corvette's cheesy interior? Those days are officially over. Chevy sweated the details this time, and the result is high-quality materials, an awesome cockpit-style dashboard with high-tech displays, and supportive seats that would make a Porsche owner proud. Yeah, we said it: The Corvette finally has seats that are worthy of its performance. With upgrades like this, the C7 'Vette takes a back seat to no one.

More Power and MPG

Although the Corvette's base engine remains a 6.2-liter V8, this is a new motor that pumps out up to 460 horsepower, and you'll feel every last horse when you step on it. The C7 hits 60 miles per hour in just 3.8 seconds -- that's supercar territory. Amazingly, it also gives you 29 miles per gallon on the highway. What's not to like? You can still get a manual transmission, too, this time with seven forward gears, while the optional 6-speed conventional automatic serves up satisfyingly firm shifts.

All-World Handling

Whether you're turning hot laps at the track or just having fun on your favorite road, the C7 is easily the best-handling Corvette we've ever driven. It's more predictable now, and in case you run out of talent, one of the world's best stability control systems is there to save your hide. Plus, it features one of the longest wheelbases of any sports car, which makes it extra solid through the bends.

Astoundingly Affordable

Would you believe that this thing starts under $55,000? To get style and performance like this anywhere else, you're looking at six figures, easy. And with the 'Vette's new-and-improved interior, there are no compromises. It's just a world-class sports car, through and through.

AutoTrader Says

The 'Vette has always been a dream car, but now it has the credentials to crush almost any car on the planet. If you're looking for the ultimate all-around sports car, you gotta try the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette.
