2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray’s chief engineer Tadge Juechter on Driving the Nation

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray’s chief engineer Tadge Juechter talked to Lou Ann Hammond, CEO, about the very sexy, very fun to drive 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.

What did Chevy change? I drove the manual and loved it, but what is the break down between the people that used to buy manual and automatic and what is the breakdown Chevy is expecting? Chevy has a new 7-speed manual transmission that they are using.

Does the V-8 have cylinder deactivation? There is an ecomode, does it apply whether you are in touring Sport or Track?

The entire cockpit is easy to use, very intuitive. There are buttons instead of a touch screen. The doors are light with a push button, the odometer pirouettes instead of just turning.
