Transformers: Age of Extinction Stars Chevy Once More

Fans of Michael Bay’s Transformers are no strangers to Chevy-turned-Autobots, and the legend will live on in the fourth installment of the saga, Transformers: Age of Extinction, which hits theaters on June 27. The star Autobot, Bumblebee, will of course be back in its Camaro flesh, but we’ll also be seeing some other exciting Chevys join the cast.

A custom Chevrolet Corvette Stingray will be featured in Transformers: Age of Extinction this summer.

For starters, the multiple award-winning Corvette Stingray will be making an appearance, converting to Crosshairs. Along with the iconic Stingray, a Chevy Trax and a Sonic Rally Car will take to the big screen.

Chevy has been involved with the Transformers franchise since the beginning. The Camaro form of Bumblebee was featured in Transformers (2007), Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009), and Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011). This next chapter features a modified vintage ’67 Camaro SS, as well as a futuristic imagining of the Camaro.

“The Transformers movies have been a great partnership for Chevrolet by allowing us to introduce our vehicles to new fans, young and old, around the world,” said Tim Mahoney, chief marketing officer, Global Chevrolet. “Now for the fourth time, you’ll see a Camaro as a heroic Autobot, a fitting role for one of the stars of Chevrolet’s lineup.”

LeeAnne Stables, executive vice president of Worldwide Marketing Partnerships for Paramount Pictures, added, “The Chevrolet partnership with this iconic Michael Bay movie franchise has become one of the longest-running and most innovative movie-brand relationships in film history. This new Chevy campaign will definitely bring new and exciting elements to a global audience of Transformers movie fans around the world.”

In addition to providing the vehicles, General Motors also provided several filming locations, including the Lansing Grand River Assembly plant, the Milford Proving Ground, and the Warren Technical Center.

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.”
