6.2L OHV V-8 (Chevrolet Corvette Stingray)
Who doesn’t love the Chevrolet Corvette and its impressive 6.2-liter V8? There’s no doubt that GM’s new LT1 engine found in the ‘vette is an impressive piece of hardware. It features standard cylinder de-activation allowing for better fuel economy when driven sedately. But of course, this is a Corvette we’re talking about and it has to be driven hard. Direct injection is added to help improve output to 455-hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. The LT1 also shares most of its technology and components with GM’s trucks. The 6.2-liter V8 found in the Silverado and Sierra both have a hint of Corvette in them.
