In addition to naming the 2014 GMC Sierra its “Best New Pickup”, the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada has recognized the 2014 Corvette Stingray as the “Best New Sports/Performance Car” in Canada.
This is an unsurprising result, as the 2014 Corvette has been heralded by almost every major automotive publication in the U.S, it was only a matter of time before our friendly neighbors to the north recognized the C7’s capabilities. A day of testing on the road and track was all it took for the ‘Vette to take the win over second and third place winners, the BMW 4-Series and Porsche Cayman.
“We thank AJAC for bestowing this prestigious award on the Corvette Stingray, demonstrating that Chevrolet can compete with the very best in the world on and off the track in technology, design and performance,” said general director of marketing and communications for Chevrolet Canada, Rob Assimakopoulos. Will the Corvette repeat this accolade next year with the 2015 C7 Z06? We wouldn’t bet against it.
