WardsAuto World Magazine Awards Corvette and Cruze Turbo Diesel for Outstanding Engine Efficiency

At Chevrolet, groundbreaking design is what drives our engineering. This dedication has landed the 2014 Corvette Stingray and the 2014 Cruze Turbo Diesel among Ward’s 10 Best Engines, as judged by WardsAuto World magazine.

“The fifth generation small block V8 in the new Stingray, is an iconic brand in itself, and our new 2.0 Turbo-Diesel engine in the Chevy Cruze is redefining the market with outstanding performance, strong low-end torque, low emissions and segment-leading highway fuel economy – a real winner,” said Steve Kiefer, GM Vice President, Global Powertrain.

The 6.2L LT1 V8 engine of the Corvette Stingray boasts 455 horsepower while delivering an EPA-estimated 29 MPG highway thanks to advanced technology that includes Direct Injection, Variable Valve Timing and Active Fuel Management.

The 2.0L turbo-diesel engine of Cruze Turbo Diesel delivers a best-in-class EPA-estimated 46 MPG highway with a range of 717 highway miles on a single tank of gas – better than any non-hybrid passenger car in America.

WardsAuto World reviewed 45 engines from 16 automakers. They then compared the engines by assessing power, fuel efficiency, new technology and refinement with Corvette and Cruze Turbo Diesel earning coveted spots on the magazine’s final list. With these awards, it just goes to show how Chevrolet is continuining to raise the bar on innovation.
