Chevy Corvette Named One of the Best Roadsters of 2022

2022 Chevrolet Corvette | Fort Meade, FL

Regardless of its humble beginnings in 1953, the iconic Corvette now boasts itself as the longest-produced sports car. If you’ve seen or experienced the exhilarating drive that a Corvette offers, it shouldn’t surprise you that it was ranked a 9.1 overall on U.S. News and World Report’s list of 2022’s best roadsters.

U.S. News gave the Corvette a 9.4 performance score – and it’s no secret why. 2020 saw a complete redesign of the Corvette which turned it into a mid-engine sports car. The 6.2-liter V8 LT4 engine is now housed behind the passenger’s seats for increased aerodynamics and performance.

Pushing boundaries is light work for the LT4. A whopping 465 lb-ft of torque and 490 horsepower are routed to the rear wheels, allowing for 0-60 mph in under three exhilarating seconds. The Corvette also embraced an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission this year. Control of this is easily accessed on both the steering wheel and the center console.

The Z51 Performance Package enables even more track-ready capability. It includes handling aids such as stiffer suspension and an electronic limited-slip differential. Upgraded engine cooling and a performance exhaust allow the Corvette to reach its 194 mph track speed more efficiently.

Chevrolet Takes Home 4 Car and Driver Editors’ Choice Awards

2022 Chevrolet Tahoe | Ft Meade, FL

Each year the editors at Car and Driver select vehicles worthy of the Editors’ Choice awards. This year, four Chevrolet models won these accolades: Chevy Suburban, Chevy Tahoe, Chevy Camaro ZL1, and Chevy Corvette.

Fullsize SUV honors

Both the Chevy Suburban and the Tahoe earned recognition in the full-size SUV category. The judges called the Suburban sophisticated and an excellent trailering vehicle. They also praised it for its ample space for passengers and gear, offering more room than its award-winning sibling, the Tahoe. The Tahoe, though, had plenty of bragging rights, as it won for its still spacious cabin, towing capacity, and modern features.

Muscle car mention

The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 earned a top spot in the muscle car category and impressed the editors with its supercharged V8 engine. “Not only is the ZL1 the ultimate Camaro, but it’s also the king of the racetrack-ready muscle cars,” according to Car and Driver.

Sports car winner

Taking its rightful honor in the sports car category, the Chevrolet Corvette was lauded for its high-end materials, features and — of course — thrilling performance. C/D noted, “Ferrari moves and incandescent performance with a Chevrolet price tag makes the Corvette C8 a hugely desirable sports car, one with mass appeal.”

2020 Silverado 1500

For the first time since 1997, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is offering an available diesel engine. Paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission, the new 3.0-liter Duramax® Turbo-Diesel engine achieves 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque.

The powerful engine also has an EPA-estimated 23 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.* As such, the fuel-efficient truck can help you save money on fuel over time.

2020 Corvette Stingray

The 2020 Corvette Stingray is the very first Corvette to have an engine placed behind passengers. The engine itself is a 6.2-liter LT2 V8, which reaches 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. With the new placement, the profile is different, and it’s easier to get into the vehicle.

The Continuously Variable Valve Timing enhances the engine’s performance. Meanwhile, the standard dual-clutch transmission makes shifting smooth and quick.
