How would the Corvette Stingray affect you?

Chevrolet doesn’t only want to know what the Corvette Stingray can handle from drivers; they want to know what drivers can handle from the Stingray. Chevrolet brought together five drivers from across the world with different backgrounds to test drive the Stingray in a closed road setting.

The drivers were hooked up to sensors that recorded their biometric data. Chevrolet tested their heart rate, brain activity and respiration before and during their test drive of the all-new Corvette. A couple of the drivers were fearful before driving the Stingray, but once they were actually in the car their fear turned to confidence.

It’s no doubt that the Stingray will get your heart pumping due to either its beautifully sculpted exterior or its state of the art performance (or both!), but the Stingray can also comfort you with its hand crafted interior comfort and precise handling. The Stingray truly is one of a kind.

How would the Corvette Stingray affect you? Would you feel completely comfortable with all of the horsepower? Or would you feel nervous? Let us know in the comment section below. Also be sure to check out the video from Chevrolet’s YouTube Channel. To see all five drivers’ Biometric Screening videos, check out Autoblog’s article.

2014 Chevrolet Malibu

The 2014 model year marks the 50th Anniversary of the Chevy Malibu. The 2014 Chevrolet Malibu packs lots of new features for the new year. This new model will be available and ready for test drives at local dealerships within the next few months. So, what’s new for the 2014 model year?

First is the impressive Stop/Start technology. This futuristic technology will stop the engine when the car makes a complete stop and then start itself back up when the driver releases the brake pedal. This will help with fuel economy and emissions by not wasting gasoline while waiting for the light to change from red to green.

Next is the MyLink System which will actually allow drivers to send and receive text messages via audio system. This new technology will read received text messages through the speakers of the Chevy Malibu and then allow for drivers to reply by speaking. This will help keep drivers focused on the road instead of on their phones. The goal of this technology is to help lower the amount of texting-while-driving accidents which have been on the rise over the past few years.

Other features available on the various trim levels of the Chevrolet Malibu include: touchscreen display, leather upholstery, optional 2.0-liter turbo charged engine, 18” alloy wheels, and SiriusXM Radio capabilities.
