Read on for our analysis of the 2015 Chevy Corvette 1LT and the 2015 Infiniti Q60 Journey.

Powertrain

2015 Chevy Corvette Z51 topThe 2015 Chevy Corvette features a standard 6.2L V8 engine with 455 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. This greatly outperforms the Infiniti’s 3.7L DOHC V6 with only 330 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. The Corvette offers a seven-speed manual and optional eight-speed automatic transmission, while the Q60 only offers six-speed manual and seven-speed automatic. As you may expect, the Corvette’s V8 contributes to its impressive road performance that eclipses the Infiniti’s V6. The Corvette reaches zero to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds, while it takes the Infiniti 5.5 seconds to do the same. The Infiniti Q60 just can’t keep up with the powerful Chevy Corvette.

Handling

The Corvette has a number of additional stability mechanisms to handle its powerful V8 engine. Front and rear gas-charged shocks are standard in the Corvette and not offered on the Q60. The Corvette also has a perfectly even rear weight distribution, while the Q60 is slightly off-center and less stable as a result. Finally, the Corvette’s track is 2.2 inches wider than the Q60. The Chevy Corvette is not only more powerful, but more stable than its Infiniti rival.

Warranty
