The Chevy Corvette Stingray has always been well-known for its incredible performance. That’s why for the second year in a row the LT1 Small Block 6.2-liter V8, which powers the Stingray, was named to the Ward’s 10 Best Engines List of 2015.
After an intense set of tests, WardsAuto was able to name the Stingray engine one of the best in the world among 37 other engines from 12 competing manufacturers. According to Chevy, the judges based their decisions on power, fuel efficiency, new technology, and refinement.
“Having the WardsAuto experts choose the LT1 as one of the best in the industry two years in a row is proof of what this Powertrain team can deliver–uncompromised performance, durability and efficiency that helps make the Stingray one of the best sports cars in the world today,” said Dan Nicholson, vice president of GM Global Powertrain.
The 2015 Chevy Corvette Stingray engine boasts an astonishing 460 hp, and when paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission gets 29 mpg highway. With a 3.8 second zero-to-60 rate and efficiency that’s easy on the wallet, it’s easy to see why the LT1 was one of the favorites.
