Add yet another win for the popular 2014 Corvette Stingray.
This time, it was the readers of Autoguide.com who voted the seventh-generation Corvette as the Reader’s Choice Car of the Year for 2014.
AutoGuide.com combines thorough tests of every car on the market, with up-to-the-minute information on its news blog, to cover the auto industry from all angles.
“Congratulations to everyone involved with the new Corvette and to the entire Chevrolet team,” said AutoGuide.com Editorial Director Colum Wood. “I’m not the least bit surprised by the results. Whether it’s the new look, improved interior, the iconic name or its 455 hp 6.2-liter V8, the Stingray launched hard in the polls and just continued to race away from the competition.”
Wood said he was “excited at the response this year, from AutoGuide readers and from our vast forum community,” noting that social media played a bigger role than ever “in encouraging interaction, resulting in three times as many responses for this year’s awards poll.”
The win for the Stingray came as no shock to the editors of AutoGuide, who referred to the Corvette as “the ultimate performance bargain and a whole lot more” after testing the car earlier this year.
AutoGuide readers chose the Stingray as Car of the Year from a field of 13 finalists, including top sellers, European luxury sedans, and serious performance machines like the new Porsche Cayman and the Jaguar F-Type.
General Motors dominated the results across the board. The seven different vehicle categories voted on by readers of AutoGuide saw GM take home wins in five of them – including the Stingray also in the Sports Car class, the Chevy Silverado in the Truck of the Year, the Cadillac CTS in the Luxury Car of the Year, and the Cadillac ELR in Green Car of the Year.
