New Corvette Stingray Offers Top Efficiency

The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray will offer drivers an EPA-estimated 17 city and 29 highway miles per gallon and 455 horsepower when equipped with an available 7-speed manual transmission. This rating makes the Stingray the most efficient sports car on the market for 2014.

Bradshaw Automotive of Greer, SCWith its 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine and a host of fuel-saving features like “Eco” mode, the all new Corvette Stingray boasts an 11 percent increase in highway fuel economy and a 6 percent increase in horsepower over the 2013 Corvette. The new Stingray is unique in providing both great fuel economy and top horsepower: cars with high power tend to guzzle gas, and those with great gas mileage usually don’t deliver great power. The new Stingray also maintains the classic Corvette design and style that has made it a top-performing sports car for over 60 years.

The car’s innovative technology is likely to inspire more cars in the sports car segment to improve their fuel economies.

“The Corvette Stingray establishes the benchmark for modern performance cars by using technologies to deliver more performance and more miles per gallon,” said Tadge Juechter, a Corvette spokesperson. “We expect more and more performance cars will follow Corvette’s example.”

John Legend Stars in Chevy Commercial

Grammy-winning R&B musician John Legend is featured in a new commercial for the 2014 Chevrolet Impala, along with Legend’s new song “Made to Love.”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jfAkpu3nuT0&feature=youtu.be

The commercial, which aired last week during Game 7 of the 2013 NBA Finals, shows Legend struggling for songwriting inspiration, only to find it behind the wheel of a 2014 Impala. The commercial draws in part from Legend’s own automobile history: his first car was a Chevy, and he is an active supporter of the United States automobile industry.

“I see a lot of parallels between the renaissance of a classic brand like the Impala and what I try to do as an artist,” Legend said. “I strive to make my music innovative while grounded in a classic style. The Impala is a true classic, yet its understated elegance appeals to me today.”

Initially putting their home and life’s savings on the line, the Bradshaws worked hard to develop the dealership, eventually adding a Buick store in 1987, with Chevrolet, Acura, Honda, GMC and more following soon after.

Today, Bradshaw Automotive has grown to employ over 300 people, quite an improvement over the mere 15 employees that worked at the dealership in 1979. Bradshaw Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac has earned numerous awards as one of the five dealerships that make up Bradshaw Automotive, including being named South Carolina Dealer of the Year by DealerRater for each of its four makes.
