    It’s nice to be noticed! It’s even better when knowledgable experts proclaim you’re #1!

    With summer here, many Americans have plans to use some of their stored-up vacation time for a road trip. After all, motoring around the country is practically one the top American pastimes, so why not do it in a great American car like the Chevrolet Corvette!

    That’s according to the editors over at Kelley Blue Book who have named the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette to the top of their list of Best Road Trip Cars of 2019.

    Here is KBB’s take on why the Corvette makes a great road trip vehicle:

    There are few, if any, more iconic road trip cars than the Chevrolet Corvette. And the 2019 model will have the distinction of being the last of the traditional front-engine models, since the all-new C8 mid-engine model will be revealed this summer. Whether you choose the coupe (which has a lift-out roof panel) or convertible, it is one of the last of its breed and still an inspired choice for the open road.

    KBB came up with a variety of vehicles that are suitable for a Summer Road Trip. Here’s their ranking for 2019:
    • 10. 2019 Buick Regal TourX
    • 9. 2019 Ford Expedition
    • 8. 2019 Volkswagen Atlas
    • 7. 2019 Mazda MX-G Miata RF
    • 6. 2019 Kia Stinger
    • 5. 2019 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid
    • 4. 2019 Porsche Macan
    • 3. 2019 Ram 1500
    • 2. 2019 Honda Clarity Plug-in Hybrid
    • 1. 2019 Chevrolet Corvette
    In choosing the Chevrolet Corvette as their top road trip vehicle for 2019, the editors shared a photo showing the mighty 755-hp Corvette ZR1. We call that a double-win if you have the opportunity to road trip the country in a ZR1. However, all four Corvette models are equally suited for such a trip so get out there and don’t forget to share your vacation photos with us as well. But only of your Corvette. We don’t need to see photos of your Uncle Bob being an idiot this 4th of July.

    FYI, a reader named Phil sent us this article. (Thanks Phil!) If you see some Corvette-related news out there, feel free to share it with us.

    Wow. I've always had great road trips in my Vettes, but didn't think it would be named #1 by any media outlets.

      Sorry, I do not get this list as The Best Road Trip Cars. There are so many cars other than the ones listed that are much more comfortable on the road. It is nice that the Corvette is listed. I just never considered my 2019 Corvette as a great Road Trip Car. Nor, is it the car I would use for a road trip. The Corvette is a great car for so many reasons but, I do not understand the reasoning.

        It is the ear-to-ear grin I have when in my Corvette on a road trip that flys it to the # 1positiion.

          SORRY, can’t disagree more! We have traveled border to border North,South,East and West in our 2014 and 2017 Corvettes and are looking forward to another great trip through the mountains out West this Fall. No car of the many of every description we’ve owned would have been as fun , comfortable, safe, great handling and did I mention FUN !!!! The only surprise is why Corvette wasn’t NO. 1 way before this as it has been with many of us.

            You can disagree all you want. I am glad you had FUN with your Corvette. But, the Corvette is definitely not the no. 1 safest car on the road, certainly not the most comfortable car on the road. That is what the article was about. The article was not about your opinion about how much FUN your Corvette was.

              Glad that corvette is #1.

              I question the Ram at #3 and the Atlas even being on the list. I bought my oldest an Atlas and it was a peace of ****.
