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.

Z06 = $78,995

Including destination/shipping, the 2015 Z06 will start at $78,995! Officially released GM's pricing announcement...

“The 2015 Corvette Z06’s performance and technical capabilities place it in the elite fraternity of supercars,” said Harlan Charles, Corvette product and marketing manager. “Very few cars in the world deliver 650 horsepower, true aerodynamic downforce, carbon fiber and performance technologies such as Magnetic Ride Control, Performance Traction Management and an electronic limited slip differential – and none gives the driver a transmission choice or the choice of a coupe with a removable roof panel or a full-power-top convertible.”

Leveraging learnings from the Corvette Racing program, the $2,995 Carbon Fiber Ground Effects package enables the Corvette Z06 to produce true aerodynamic downforce for increased stability at high speeds. The package adds a functional carbon fiber front splitter, carbon fiber rocker panels and a larger rear spoiler.

For the ultimate performance, the Z07 Performance Package is available for $7,995, adding Brembo carbon ceramic-matrix brake rotors that improve braking performance and contribute to better handling through reduced unsprung weight. The Z07 package adds adjustable front and rear aerodynamic components to the Carbon Fiber Ground Effects package for unprecedented aerodynamic downforce and Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup tires for enhanced grip.

“The Z07 performance package enhances overall performance to make the Corvette Z06 one of the most track-capable cars you can buy off the

LT4: Compact Powerhouse!

Aug 20, 2014 - 11:53 PM - by elegant
GM has just released a little bit more information about the LT4, mainly providing more information about its compactness compared to it amazing power (4th highest TQ of any production 2015 sports car, with the three that are more powerful belonging in three hypercars, a Porsche, a McLaran and a Ferrari costing an average of $1,105,000).

The all-new 2015 Corvette Z06 is the most powerful production car ever from General Motors, with its all-new LT4 supercharged 6.2L V-8 engine SAE-certified at 650 horsepower (485 kW) at 6,400 rpm and 650 lb-ft of torque (881 Nm) at 3,600 rpm.

More than raw power, the LT4 delivers exceptional capability in a more efficient package, making it one of the most compact 650-horsepower automotive engines in the world.

“The LT4 Small Block delivers the ultimate horsepower and torque for the most capable Corvette ever,” said Jordan Lee, chief engineer and program manager, GM Small Block Engines. “Its tremendous low-end torque, enabled by a more efficient supercharger, maximizes responsiveness for a driving experience that is on par with the world’s most exotic supercars – with impeccable manners that make it suitable for daily driving.”

To achieve its world-class balance of performance and efficiency, the LT4 leverages the technologies introduced on the 2014 Corvette Stingray’s LT1 Gen 5 Small Block, including direct injection, Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation) and continuously variable valve timing, while advancing the supercharging technologies established with the previous-generation Corvette ZR1’s LS9 engine. That includes a new, more compact and higher output supercharger/intercooler assembly that helps maintain a low

2015 Stingray w/A8 Driven

Aug 20, 2014 - 7:29 AM - by BOBSZO6

Thanks to MotorTrend, we have learned:

"Wide open throttle second-to-third upshifts are 0.08 seconds quicker than those of its benchmark, Porsche’s seven-speed PDK, says Kaveh (0.45 vs. 0.53). Downshifts from WOT at 60 mph in Sport mode are just as quick (0.95 seconds) too. The PDK also nips at the Hydra-Matic’s heels during WOT first-to-second upshifts (0.49 vs. 0.52)."

"To experience the gearbox’s character, Chevrolet set us loose on its 2.9-mile twisty, undulating, blind-corner-filled track at the Milford Proving Grounds. Nil-to-wee sprints in Track mode, automatic shifts, were quite telling: The gearbox knocked off gears at its indicated 6500 rpm abruptly, spectacularly, with an accompanying violent explosion that only a 6.2-liter V-8 with quad pipes could produce. As corners neared, downshifts were again crisp. Deep inside corners, gears held with no moments of confusion or hesitation — it was as if the CPU was more intuitive than reactive; more organic than robotic — which ballooned my confidence and allowed me to pinpoint the longish nose."

"While Chevy’s numbers beg to differ, the 8L90 in Track mode simply didn't feel as quick as the PDK when operated via its plastic paddles. Don’t get me wrong, clicking off a WOT upshift is a glorious, stupidly fast affair. It is much the same for downshifts. Yet, Porsche, with its well-honed cohesion of an extra clutch and different structural packaging, still has the upper hand in smoothness and feel while on track. Even still, the 8L90 was impressive, especially when off the track. We drove more than 40 miles in highway and city settings around Milford. Smoothness was the name of its game. Intuitiveness was too. Multi-step highway passes in automatic mode required no pauses on its part. The ‘Vette just flew. Then it calmly upshifted into a gear best suited for casual cruising."
