Starting today the jurors will get to have even more fun whittling down the competition.

According to NACTOY, “The next step in the awards process is an annual comparison drive that will take place from October 8 to 10, in Ann Arbor. Jurors will gather for a three-day-long event where they will have another chance to evaluate the semifinalists while driving some of Michigan’s finest roads.”

The Chevy Corvette Stingray offers drivers a choice of three stunning, powerful trims — 1LT, 2LT, and 3LT. The pairing of a standard seven-speed manual transmission with Active Rev matching and a 6.2-liter direct-injection V8 engine provides ratings of 455 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque.  An eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission can also be paired to the V8. The Corvette Stingray earns an EPA-estimated fuel rating of 25 mpg on the highway.

The stylish sports car is well-equipped with luxurious materials and features such as available heated and ventilated driver and passenger seats, available carbon-fiber and sueded microfiber-wrapped steering wheel, and available perforated Napa leather seating surfaces. The available Chevrolet Infotainment System with Navigation boasts an 8-inch color touch screen.

Safety isn’t sacrificed for performance as the Corvette Stingray offers a rear vision camera, active handling stability control with traction control, all-speed traction control, and the OnStar Basic Plan as standard features.
