When it comes to knowing what makes a powertrain great, there are few who know it better than WardsAuto World magazine. Every year, WardsAuto comes out with a list of the best powertrains in the car industry. This year, the Ward’s 10 Best Engine list named the LT1 Small Block 6.2-liter V8 engine which powers the Corvette Stingray, making it the second consecutive time this engine has shown up on the list.
“This recognition is another step in earning customers for life,” said Dan Nicholson, vice president of GM Global Powertrain. “Having the WardsAuto experts choose the LT1 as one of the best in the industry two years in a row is proof of what this Powertrain team can deliver—uncompromised performance, durability, and efficiency that helps make the Stingray one of the best sports cars in the world today.”
With the LT1 Small Block technology under its hood, the Stingray has managed to be the quickest, most powerful, and most fuel-efficient Corvette ever. The engine receives 460 horsepower, pushing the car from zero-to-60 mph in 3.8 seconds, while offering an EPA-estimated 29 mpg highway.
