This Tampa Chevy dealer is excited that Chevrolet is adding two big wins to its award list.

    TAMPA, FL, May 09, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- This year at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, 48 automotive journalists reviewed 11 cars and 12 trucks and utility vehicles. After narrowing down the selection to six finalists, Chevrolet brought home two big awards. (1) Chevy Tampa is pleased to announce that the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado were named the 2014 North American Car and Truck of the Year. (2)

With Chevrolet in the midst of the "most aggressive product transformation in the brand's more than 100-year history," according to Alan Batey, General Motors senior vice president, Global Chevrolet, it is no wonder the automaker swept home both awards. Batey also said the Corvette and Silverado "truly embody the passion, commitment, and focus" that pushes the company to deliver these extraordinary vehicles. (2)

The all-new Corvette Stingray has already won a pile of awards and recommendations. As for the Chevrolet Silverado, it was recognized for its distinguished features. (2) To be eligible for the title, these vehicles had to have experienced a noteworthy change or redesign. They also had to have been introduced during the 2013 year. (1)

The 2014 Chevrolet Stingray is the automaker's most powerful standard model made to date. This North American Car of the Year is equipped with a 6.2-liter V-8 engine. It generates a mighty 455 horsepower and 460 foot-pounds of torque. With the available Z51 Performance Package, this supercar can sprint from zero to 60 in 3.8 seconds. (2)

The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado, winner of the North American Truck of the Year, has its strength placed elsewhere. This pickup is equipped with a 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V-8 engine, strong enough to do almost any job. It produces 355 horsepower for all that towing and hauling. The 2014 Silverado also offers the best consumption in the V-8 pickup range. (2)
