When the mid-engine Corvette debuted stunningly in a California airline hangar, it changed the auto world overnight and received rave reviews from experts and world-class drivers who had waited years for its arrival. One of its most valuable qualities is something that many would have not thought was on the list of strengths: it gets surprisingly good gas mileage!
The 2022 C8 Corvette is working with a 6.2-liter V8, and its gas mileage is a few notches above decent. According to the most recent EPA findings, the 2022 Corvette gets 16 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. The Car and Driver team’s 495-horsepower C8 Z51 recently recorded 26 mpg on the highway!
The all-American and always iconic 2022 Corvette definitely delivers better mileage than quite a few of its naturally aspirated V8 rivals. The 2022 Ford Mustang GT sits around 15 miles per gallon city and 24 miles per gallon highway, and that’s with a V8 that has slightly less power than what the Corvette is currently brandishing. The C8 Corvette has been billed even faster than the 2022 Dodge Challenger TA 392 as well as the supercharged Challenger Hellcat.
Corvette models even earlier than 2022 without the Z51 Package had slightly better mileage stats, with the Z51’s track-focused addition including a shorter axle ratio. Even though it drastically improves the 0-60 and quarter-mile times and increases rear-wheel torque, it also leaves the V8 spinning at higher rpm on the highway, ultimately burning a bit more fuel. If you opt for skipping the Z51, you’ll be able to save a few dollars at the pump.
The 2023 C8 Corvette currently under development is estimating about 16 mpg city and 24 mpg highway with the potent pleasures of the Z51 Package. We hope you visit us here soon to check out its raw power and cutting-edge advantage at the pump!
