Impressive Numbers for the Corvette

The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray gets 15 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway, according to a recent report from the EPA. Car and Driver noted that when it tested the Corvette, it got 26 mpg on a 75-mile journey, so it’s safe to say the EPA numbers are pretty much right on the mark.

That’s better than the C7 Corvette which was rated at 15 mpg city and 25 mpg highway. It’s also better than many competitors, including the 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S. We know most folks don’t buy high-powered sports cars for their fuel efficiency, but it’s still good to see Chevy pushing for better numbers in this regard. 

With that kind of gas mileage, the car is capable of 490 miles on a single tank of gas if you do highway-only miles. That’s very good, indeed. It’s impressive that Chevrolet can get so much out of a 6.2-liter V8 engine, especially one that’s tuned for performance first and efficiency second.

We don’t see many folks trying to hyper mile their new C8 Corvette, but respectable fuel economy is still something to consider, especially if you’re looking at the Corvette and then also considering some of the competition. The C8 Corvette beats the competition in many respects, fuel economy being only one thing.
