Chevrolet Sweeps! Car and Truck of the Year!

February 4, 2014

The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and the Chevrolet Silverado have been named the 2014 North American Car and Truck of the Year at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS). This is only the third time in the awards twenty-one year history that Chevrolet has swept both awards.

The 2014 models of the Corvette and Silverado truly embody the passion, commitment and attention drivers in the Coachella Valley have come to expect from their Chevrolet. Dramatic designs, inventive technologies, and superior performance make Chevrolet ideal for anyone in Southern California.

North American Car and Truck of the Year are awarded annually at the start of media week at the NAIAS. Forty-nine automotive journalists from the United States and Canada vote to recognize the most outstanding vehicles of the year based on factors including innovation, design, safety, handling, driver satisfaction and value for the dollar.

“North American Car of the Year” is just the latest of more than twenty awards and recommendations the 2014 Corvette Stingray has received since its introduction last fall, making it the industry’s most awarded car of the year. Stingray is the most powerful standard Corvette model ever with 455 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque from a 6.2L V8 engine. It packs an even more impressive 460 horsepower and 465 lb.-ft. of torque with the available performance exhaust system, enabling models with the available Z51 Performance Package to sprint from 0 to 60 in 3.8 seconds. The Stingray engine features advanced technologies including Direct Injection, Variable Valve Timing and Active Fuel Management to balance performance with the greatest efficiency of any sports car on the market — an EPA-estimated 29 MPG highway when equipped with the 7-speed manual transmission. Showing off around Palm Springs in the North American Car of the Year is sure to turn heads.

The all-new 2014 Silverado completes the sweep, winning the award for North American Truck of the Year. Silverado is recognized for features such as its available 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 engine, which generates 355 horsepower for confident towing and hauling in any jobsite throughout Southern California, yet seamlessly switches to four cylinders to save fuel during light-load driving. With an EPA-estimated 23 MPG highway, Silverado offers the best fuel economy of any V8 pickup. Silverado 1500 also received the highest possible 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score for Safety as part of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s New Car Assessment Program.

Whether drivers in Palm Springs are looking for the ultimate sports car or the most dependable truck on the market, the 2014 North American Car and Truck of the year are available and waiting at Jessup Auto Plaza.
