Starting with the most important part the motor....
The C7 will boast a 450 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque; which will propell this beast 0-60 in less than four seconds. The transmission is a seven-speed will make this vehicle faster and more efficient.
Besides the obvious, the new Stingray will be composed with some of the most expensive matterials. The roof and the hood will be carbon fiber, which will reduce the weight off the top of the vehicle and keep the weight lower. This will create a low enter of gravity and increase handeling. LED lighting will be no stranger to this Corvette. The headlights and tail lights will use LEDs.

ADVANCED SUSPENSION TECHNOLOGY
3.6L V6 ENGINE
ADAPTIVE FORWARD LIGHTING
Friday, April 20, 2012
General Motors has officially unveiled the 2014 Chevrolet Impala at this year's New York Auto Show. Riding on the same bones as the 2013 Malibu, the next-generation Impala boasts a considerably more attractive exterior with plenty of personality. Borrowing the best elements of design from the GM stable, we see more than a little Camaro and Lacrosse in the sedan's front fascia and stylized hips. Buyers can look forward to either standard 18-inch wheels or a slew of larger options, including massive 20-inch rollers. Under the hood, GM has graced the 2014 Impala with a range efficient direct-injection engines, including a 2.4-liter four-cylinder paired with the automaker's eAssist hybrid system. With 182 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque, the drivetrain falls well short of the 288 horsepower offered up by the Ford Taurus, though it does so while returning significantly better fuel economy. GM Says the four-cylinder Impala will return 35 mpg highway, six mpg better than the full-size Ford. Those who need a little extra grunt can step up to the company's tried-and-true 3.6-liter V6 with 303 horsepower and 234 lb-ft of torque, and there's also a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter four-cylinder available that produces 195 horsepower, while all three engines are mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox.

ff by the time the Corsica/Beretta replaced it in the '80s.
The Malibu's return for '97 was not pretty, but that prosaic model couldn't prepare Chevrolet loyalists for what followed: the 2004 Malibu/Maxx. Right now, GM designers, engineers, and execs are shrieking in horror over its mention in a story about their handsome new model. Please calm down. There's a method behind this history lesson.
The shift from Malibu/Maxx to its '08 successor represents the greatest design turnaround in GM's history, and one of Bob Lutz's biggest successes during his second tenure at the company. What do you do for an encore?
The outgoing Malibu recalled Chevrolet's glory days, when the brand offered elegance and features that transcended its status at the bottom of GM's price/purpose ladder. With its tailored appearance and formal roofline, the Malibu looked like it could fetch far more than its low-$20s pric
Its successor eschews elegant, formal sheetmetal for a sporty look. The Malibu evolves to the Opel Insignia/Buick Regal's Epsilon II architecture to lose 4.5 inches in wheelbase. Chevy worries buyers will think it has shrunk. After all, Buick markets the Regal as a "sport sedan," explaining its tight rear-seat space, so Chevrolet is quick to note that overall interior space is increased more than 3 cubic feet relative to the current Malibu, putting it in the ballpark of the Toyota Camry and Ford Fusion, and just slightly smaller than Honda Accord and Hyundai Sonata. That's because the new Malibu has grown 2.7 inches wider, so big increases in shoulder and hip room compensate for slight losses in legroom and front headroom relative to the 2012 Malibu. Mark Moussa, Malibu's global chief engineer explains that relative to the Regal, his packaging engineers have greatly increased shoulder room, tightened the clearance between the headliner and the exterior roof panel, and lowered the H-point.
Perhaps its most striking feature, after styling, is that it will be offered only with four-cylinder engines. There's no V-6 in the works. That's pretty forward thinking for Chevy, even if Buick, Hyundai, and Kia got ther
To take advantag
About half a year later, Chevy will add an all-new 2.5-liter four-cylinder option. The only transmission offered for either engine is GM's six-speed automatic. Chevy will offer a turbodiesel and a smaller four in other markets.
The new Malibu has been designed to be a global sedan, sold in China -- it was unveiled at the Shanghai show, a day ahead of the New York International Auto Show -- and throughout Asia, Europe, and the quickly growing markets in South America. In Australia, it will be the Holden Malibu.
It's a big piece of the strategy puzzle that has Chevrolet becoming GM's true global brand. In western Europe, the Chevy strategy pushes Opel/Vauxhall back to where it was in the '60s and '70s: an upper-middle, semi-premium brand like Buick.
