Lancaster, NY (May 22, 2013) – There have been fewer cars more hotly anticipated in recent years than the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. Besides resurrecting the famous fish moniker, the all-new Corvette ushers in the seventh generation platform design. Underneath that angular, razor sharp-looking exterior is the very best in performance engineering that GM could imagine.
Backing the all-new direct-injection 6.2-liter LT1 small-block V8 — producing 450hp and 450 lb-ft — is your choice of a new seven-speed Tremec TR6070 manual or a stellar paddle-shifted six-speed Hydra-Matic 6L80 automatic transmission. The all-new Hydra-Matic uses a small torque converter for less inertia, allowing for significantly faster and smoother shifting. Controlled via the Corvette’s software, the transmission features improved shift speed, rev matching, and gear prediction, that is, if you’re not manually shifting via the steering wheel paddles.
Paramount to making this new six-speed automatic operate at peak levels — but also for decades to come — are Jiffy-tite fluid fittings. Providing 21 different components exclusively for the 2013 Corvette Stingray, Jiffy-tite was simply the best choice. Having provided high performance, high durability fittings for Chevrolet, Ford, Cadillac, Chrysler, Mercedes-Benz, Harley Davidson, Caterpillar and more, there are over 300 million Jiffy-tite devices used on vehicles worldwide.
The 2014 Corvette recently made its public debut at the Indy 500 as the official pace car – driven by San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh.
Jiffy-tite manufactures quick-connect fluid couplers, oil thermostats, compact filters, turbocharger cooling and lubricating couplers as well as fittings for hybrid and electric vehicles. For more information, please contact Jamie Evans @ 1-888-605-7788, or visit www.jiffy-tite.com.
