Official C8 Corvette Fuel Economy Is Pretty Good for a 495-HP V-8

Motortrend Magazine News - Fri, 01/24/2020 - 8:36pm

Not a single C8 Corvette will be sold for its fuel economy, but as it turns out, the mpg numbers it returns aren’t actually all that bad. As we just learned from Corvette Chief Engineer Ed Piatek at the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona, the C8 has been EPA certified at 15/27 mpg city/highway.

The Corvette is powered by an LT2 6.2-liter V-8 engine producing 495 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. Given that, 15 mpg in urban driving is good for such a burly block, but the 27-mpg highway figure is more impressive. Keeping revs low at speed is handled by the Corvette’s eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, but a cylinder deactivation system is largely responsible for reducing the LT2’s fuel consumption.

Additionally, the C8 will be a good road-trip cruiser thanks to its 18.6-gallon fuel tank. Filled to the brim and with judicious throttle application by the driver (a tailwind wouldn’t hurt, either), the Corvette will be able to cover just over 500 miles between refills.

Piatek says to look at the Corvette’s competitors to get perspective on how impressive its fuel efficiency is. So let’s compare mpg figures for the road-going versions of some of the sports cars the race-spec Corvette C8.R will face at Daytona this weekend.

The Porsche 911 Carrera S is rated at 18/24 mpg, not exceptional considering its flat-six engine has less than half the LT2’s displacement. BMW’s M850i uses a V-8, albeit a smaller one that’s twin-turbocharged, and returns 18/25 mpg. The Ferrari 488 GTB also uses a smaller-displacement twin-turbo V-8, but sucks down a gallon of premium every 16 miles in the city, and every 22 miles on the highway. Efficiency is even worse for the V-10-powered Lamborghini Huracan, which is rated at just 13/18 mpg.

C8 Corvette buyers will be drawn much more to the car’s radical styling and stupendous performance than its fuel economy figures. But no one likes putting gas in their car, and the C8’s good efficiency and large gas tank will keep visits to the pump relatively few and far between—assuming those buyers can resist frequently testing their car’s 2.8-second 0-60 acceleration time.

And it’s possible an even more fuel-efficient Corvette is on the way. We have it on good authority that the forthcoming C8 Corvette ZR1 will rely on hybrid power to achieve its near-900-hp output. Take that, Prius!

There’s a Statistically Low Chance Volvo Will Give Away $1M in Cars During the Super Bowl

Motortrend Magazine News - Fri, 01/24/2020 - 8:30pm

Volvo is synonymous with safety. Thus it’s no surprise that the brand is taking the statistically safe choice of giving away $1 million worth of cars should a safety occur during Super Bowl LIV.

As defined by the National Football League, a safety occurs “if the offense commits a foul in its own end zone or when an impetus by a team sends the ball behind its own goal line, and the ball is dead in the end zone in its possession or the ball is out of bounds behind the goal line.” If those conditions are met, then the defensive team receives two points.

Yes, we know that’s pretty jargon-y and difficult to decipher, which is why we’ll break it down even more simply: a safety is a rare scoring event. In fact, less than 0.5 percent of the more than 10,000 points scored by every NFL team throughout the 2019 regular season were the result of a safety.

Still, that doesn’t mean one won’t happen during the Super Bowl. As such, there’s no reason not to head over to VolvoSafetySunday.com to design your own Volvo between now and the day of the big game. Should either the San Francisco 49ers or Kansas City Chiefs benefit or suffer from a safety, then Volvo will randomly select entrants to award $1 million worth of cars to.

Sure, the chances of a safety occurring in the Super Bowl are low, but there’s an even higher chance that you’ll regret not signing up to win a Volvo if one or both teams happen to record a safety.
