More details about the all-new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray have been revealed in a recent Wide Open Throttle (WOT) video. On the Motor Trend (MT) YouTube channel, General Motors North America President, Mark Reuss, was interviewed by a group of MT staff members and HOT ROD Editor-in-chief Dave Freiburger about the C7 and the recently announced 2014 Camaro Z/28.
The above video is certainly worth a watch if you’re a die-hard Chevy fan, it goes in depth about the following tidbits:
- Paddle shifting in a C7 vs. a standard manual transmission
- Impressive fuel economy for a Corvette
- The price-point for a Corvette, and how the price determines the features that are included
- The demand for a Corvette that can be reliably driven, daily
- The reason behind not having AWD in a Corvette
- The demand to have lots of quality inspection before the Corvette is released
- What it takes to make a Camaros a proper Z/28
- Why the all-new Z/28 is not a ZL1 and vise versa
- What makes the Z/28 stand out from the competition
- Whether the Cadillac ATS’s Alpha platform can squeeze a V-8 between the fenders
- The future naming of Cadillac models
- In-depth opinions of the Cadillac logo
- What will be in store for the Cadillac portfolio moving forward
We strongly suggest giving this video a watch. Not every question is answered, but what would you expext? ..a potential C7-based ZR1 to be revealed on YouTube? Reuss did give a great behind the scenes perspective of the Chevrolet mind sight, and more importantly the GM future with Cadillac. Take a half hour and check it out, it’s sure to entertain.
