2022 Corvette Stingray Makes Car And Driver 10Best List13
The 2022 Corvette Stingray has been included on Car And Driver’s latest iteration of its coveted 10Best List.
The Car And Driver 10Best is recognized in the industry as one of the top awards an automaker can receive, serving as concrete recognition that its products are among the most impressive on sale today. The 2022 Corvette Stingray’s inclusion on the list is likely not very surprising to Chevy, however, as the mid-engine sports car also received a 10Best award for both 2020 and 2021.
Car And Driver says its love for the Corvette Stingray mainly stems from the vehicle’s overall value – especially when compared to competing offerings from rivals like Porsche, Audi and McLaren. The publication says the Corvette “delivers a supercar experience at a sports-car $62,195 starting price,” and also impresses with its build quality, comfort and quiet cabin.
“Whether you’re using it for a dull commute or a weekend away and with or without the truly excellent optional adaptive dampers, the ride isolation and interior noise levels are almost mid-size-sedan pleasant,” the publication says of the latest Corvette.
The Corvette Stingray was one of three sports cars included on the 2022 Car And Driver 10Best List – the other two being the Porsche 718 Boxster/Cayman and the Toyota 86. Like the Chevy Corvette, both of these vehicles offer good value for money to performance enthusiasts and require little compromise when it comes to ownership costs, reliability and practicality.
Pricing for the 2022 Corvette Stingray starts at $62,195. The sports car is powered by a naturally aspirated 6.2 LT2 V8 engine producing 495 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque when equipped with the optional Performance Exhaust, which links up to an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. This setup enables the mid-engine Chevy to hustle from zero to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 184 mph.

Well deserved !!!
Sure looks good in all the photos but, mine will look much better when it gets built and in my garage LOL Tomg
10k miles on my 2021 Z51 and loving it. So far so great.
With a little luck, I’ll be pickup up my 2022 in March. Most likely will make December Allocation. My build is done and in OrderWORKBENCH, just not submitted yet.
I only have 6000 miles on my 2021 Z51. Drove it 75 miles to work today on my daily commute from about 3,000 foot elevation where I live down to sea level where I work. It was 40 degrees F most of the way. The car goes into V4 mode for economy for long stretches, which increases my miles per gallon. I really do love this car. No complaints. It is smooth, quiet, and also pretty fast when you need it.
I will be doing my own oil change soon, and will change the transmission filter myself when it needs it. I had to purchase the trans filter, motor oil (Mobil1 ESP DeXos2 0w-40) online as no retailers carry these. I hope eventually we can buy oil at the store.
You can get it in autozone I bought a couple of quarts when I got my C8 just in case I need it so far no problem
Although Car and Driver and likely many of the other car oriented magazines rate the new C8 highly and one of the best, you can be assured that Consumer Reports will down grade it severely in almost all of their assigned categories and list it as “Least Reliable”. That’s if they even list it in their Category “Sports Cars”
What no mention of two Blackwings also on the list?
Cant wait for my 2122 Torch red, my original car came in while on duty in North Dakota, and could not get back to Vegas and get it. But Finley Cheve. took care of me and it will be here before Christmas.
I’ve worked 42 years for Santa Fe railroad and now it’s time to spend the money 💰 so I ordered my 2022 C8 Red mist tint Vett
should be here by June 2022 I feel GREAT With one foot in the hole spend the money can’t take it with you.
I hear you Mike. I come across a lot of us hard working Americans that feel the same way. I too worked 40 plus years saving and trying to do the right things in life so we could really enjoy all the dreams within reach. My 2021 Z51 seabring orange is living the dream for us. Like you said you can’t take it with you and God doesn’t want any of it anyways . Enjoy the ride that you made for yourself in life. 👍
Tom and Mike, I’m with you guys as well. My 2021 Sebring Orange 3LT Z51 has given 40 plus years of long hours and saving a little more purpose. Love It !
