The 2014 Corvette Stingray’s fuel efficiency numbers were revealed this week, showing that it gets better gas mileage than the 2013 Corvette Stingray.

The 2014 Chevrolet model improved its EPA fuel rating relative to the 2013 C6 model, according to reports.

With a clutch pedal, the Stingray gets 29 miles per gallon on the highway, said GTSpirit. The 2013 model gets 25 miles per gallon. Without manual transmission, the car gets 28 miles per gallon.

The Corvette C7 Stingray gets 16 miles in the city, which is a slight improvement over the 15 miles per gallon in the city.

Ahead of the car’s release, it was reported there has already been 485 pre-ordered vehicles that have been shipped to dealerships around the U.S.

“As the first orders get out of the system and it starts settling down, what you’ll see is that the take rates on the performance options will go down and stabilize,” Chevy spokesman Monte Doran told the blog.
