General Motors unveiled its newest muscle car -- and a classic one at that -- Sunday at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit: the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.
The Stingray is the first new version of the popular sports car in nine years, but this version stands out from its predecessors in one category: gas mileage.
Due to stricter government regulations, as well as more budget-conscious consumers when it comes to gas mileage, General Motors revamped the new Corvette’s looks as well as its fuel economy.
And let's all admit it -- this car does look good.
Though GM says there is still testing to be done before they know the exact mileage, they did explain that it will be better than the current models’ 16 miles per gallon in the city and 26 miles per gallon on the highway.
The car’s usual consumers will be happy to note that the V-8 engine can go zero to 60 in under four seconds, which is a small improvement from the current model.
The price for the Stingray has not been released, but Corvette prices are often tens of thousands of dollars less than its competitors.
But this could be a game changer.
The current model sells at just under $50,000 right now, and eager consumers will be able to purchase the 2014 Stingray this fall.
