2015 StingRay Pricing

Jul 17, 2014 - 11:31 PM - by elegant
2015 StingRay pricing leaked, and it is a pleasant surprise for some -- though not all. It will depend in which options one wants.

Some examples:

Base pricing for all four models UNCHANGED!

The 2LT mid-level interior trim package went down $ -50.

The 3LT interior trim package went up $1,445, however, now includes previous, separate Upper Interior Suede package (IWE), which was a $995 2014 option, AND includes the Performance Data Recorder as standard equipment.

8-speed auto (compared to outgoing 6-speed auto) = $ +375.

Carbon fiber aero package (CFZ) = $2,995

Nav/PDR (for 1LT & 2LT) = $1,795. This compares to 2014 navigation system being $795, i.e., adding the 2015 PDR required component resulted in a $1,000 price increase.

Whereas the end of 2014 Z-51 pricing was a $4,000 option, if you added for 2014 the NPP Performance Exhaust, your post March 3rd Z-51 pricing for the two was $5,200; however, the 2015 pricing for the Z-51 option -- which now mandatorily includes the NPP system, now totals $5,000.

As previously shared, the ZF1 appearance package is $1,995.

If one chooses the Appearance Package for the coupe (5KW), that will cost $995, whereas the same package for the convertible (option 5KX) will cost $800.

The five piece luggage package (S2L) dropped $75, to $920.

Daytona Sunrise Orange Metallic (G1H) will be a $495 option.

Clear Protective Film Package (WA8) = $1,300.

Body colored exterior package (grills and vents monochromatic, option EFY) = $995.

More examples to follow in subsequent posts, but some folks are finding positive surprises compared to expectations, some finding negative surprises.

Dealers Given 1st Cycle Z06 Allocations

Sep 15, 2014 - 9:01 AM - by elegant
Dealers were given, this morning, their Z06 allocation total for the first ordering cycle. The cycle will consist of the first Dealer Submission Ordering Process (DSOP) this Thursday, nothing the following week, and the second DSOP process starting on October 2nd. This particular top dealership was given, total, for this one cycle, 9+ % of his total 2015 allocation, and, as I was cautioned, the amount may not be evenly split between September 18th and October 2nd.

Specific constraint information remains on track to be distributed this Thursday.

UPDATE: Just talked to a second top dealership, and his allocation was the same really good percentage.

'15 C7 Recalls/Stop Sales

Sep 11, 2014 - 10:41 PM - by elegant
GM issued two recalls today on some 2015 Corvettes, even going further by requiring dealers to stop sales/deliveries of affected models. The two issues are that for some cars, are that the air bag could become detected from the steering wheel in a crash event and, second, regarding parking brakes not working properly because one of the parking brake cables was not installed properly. GM noted that very few of the Corvettes have been delivered to customers, with most still at the Bowling Green Assembly Plant lots

General Motors is issuing two more recalls, both on the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette, according to stop-delivery orders sent to dealers today.

The recalls, GM’s first in more than a month, bring its total number for the year to 67. They cover problems with airbag and parking brake cables on a total of nearly 2,800 cars, though very few have been sold to customers, a GM spokesman said.

Neither recall has been announced publicly yet, and parts are not available for the airbag repair. They come amid strong sales of the redesigned Corvette Stingray, forcing dealers to turn down potential buyers until the problems are resolved. GM sold 2,679 Corvettes in August vs. 655 during the same month last year.

The airbag recall covers about 2,000 Corvettes, many of which are still at the plant in Bowling Green, Ky. According to the stop-delivery order, the driver’s side airbag in those cars could separate from the steering wheel in a crash, increasing the potential for injuries. Dealers will be instructed to replace the airbag module with a revised version.

The second recall covers about 800 Corvettes, 700 of which are on dealer lots. GM said the cars were “built without one of the rear parking brake cables fully seated and engaged. That means the parking brake will

Z06's LT4 "Crushing"

Sep 09, 2014 - 9:46 AM - by elegant
The new LT4, while being supercharged like the ZR1's LS9, is "crushing the LS9's benchmarks." And, catch this, 29 MPG highway!!!

[Quote=Wards Auto]LT4 Puts ‘Brutal’ Power Behind Corvette Z06: Supercharger Key Component!

Jordan Lee, Chief Engineer for the small-block V-8 at GM, says the LT4 crushes the performance benchmark set by the LS9. “The LT4 makes the ZR1 feel sluggish,” he says.

With several months of engineering work remaining on the ’15 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, the sports car already owns the fastest lap at the General Motors Proving Ground. In the coming weeks, more records are expected to fall when it travels to Germany’s fabled Nurburgring for testing.

The supercharged, 638-hp Corvette ZR1 owns GM’s quickest turn of “The ’Ring,” posting a 7:19.63 in 2012. That’s about 3.5 seconds ahead of the previous-generation Z06, which still commands a top-15 time at the track from 2011.

But the redesigned ’15 Z06 boasts an all-new 650-hp 6.2L LT4 V-8, which like the ZR1 with its 6.2L LS9 V-8 uses an Eaton Roots-type blower for added power over base-model Corvettes.

Jordan Lee, chief engineer and program manager for the small-block V-8 at GM, says the LT4 crushes the performance benchmark set by the LS9.

“The LT4 makes the ZR1 feel sluggish,” Lee says during a recent backgrounder on the engine here. “It’s brutal in a raw sense, but a thrill.”

The LT4’s calling card is maximum power almost instantly. The engine, based on the fifth-generation small-block LT1 6.2L V-8 architecture powering the ’14 Corvette Stingray, makes 457 lb.-ft. (619 Nm) of torque just off idle, Lee says, and 625 lb.-ft. (847 Nm) at a scant 2,800 rpm.

The LT4 also maintains 90% of its peak torque, or 592 lb.-ft. (802 Nm), from 2,500 to 5,400 rpm. The full brunt of the LT4’s 650 lb.-ft. (881 Nm) of thrust comes at 3,600 rpm and gives it nearly 8% greater peak grunt than the ZR1.

GM has not published a top speed for the Z06, but given the power output it would almost certainly exceed the 205 mph (330 km/h) of... [Read More]

Stingray saves the 'automotive souls' of today's youth

Sep 08, 2014 - 6:44 PM - by jsvette
In this months Automobile (October 2014) mag editor Mike Floyd reports in his one page editor's letter the extremely positive reactions, especially from kids, he got driving around Detroit in a Stingray. He stated "During my 15 years or so driving press cars, there have been a few I've driven that have elicited something similar to this sort of reactions." "It's about the battle for the automotive souls of today's youth." Yup, our Stingrays will save our youth as well as serving as a blast for those of us at the other end of the age spectrum
