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 Engine Build Information

Jul 21, 2014 - 9:17 AM - by elegant
Here is some more info on the upcoming Z06 engine build experience, but alas, just like other Z06 info, it is far from detailed, far from precise.

BOWLING GREEN, Kentucky — Some buyers of the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z06, those enthusiasts who want to assist with the hand-built assembly of the new LT4 supercharged V8 that will sit under the hood of their new 'Vette, may be disappointed, Edmunds has learned. Not all Z06 buyers will be able to participate in Corvette's build-your-own engine experience when it kicks off next year.

Unlike the previous build-your-own engine program, which dedicated one engine facility to General Motors' performance engines and was open to all Z06 buyers, the 650-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 will be assembled in two new locations: the Corvette assembly plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky and GM's engine-assembly plant in Tonawanda, New York.

However, only the Bowling Green plant will offer some Z06 buyers the opportunity to get their hands dirty and help build their engine.

"This is where it gets tricky," Monte Doran, a Chevrolet spokesman, told Edmunds. "It depends on if your engine is going to be built in Bowling Green or Tonawanda."

GM has not determined what percentage of LT4 V8 production will be sourced in Kentucky.

Doran added: "We plan on doing that program for the seventh-generation cars. (But) we have not quite worked out all the details. How will the process work? How much does it cost? How do the functions of that experience work for the customer?"

The built-your-own engine experience had been a $5,800 option on the previous-generation Corvette Z06 and ZR1 that buyers checked off when they ordered a car.

A GM technician helped the buyer hand-build their engine during an eight-hour process at GM's Performance Build Center

MLB All Star MVP Takes Home a Corvette Stingray, 2nd C7 Auctioned for Charity

After being named the Most Valuable Player for the 2014 Major League Baseball All Star Game, Angels’ slugger Mike Trout took home a brand new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible – picking the sleek sports car over a brand new Chevrolet Silverado pickup while also signing the hood of a second Corvette to be auctioned off.

This story is written by Patrick Rall of TorqueNews.com and originally published under Chevrolet News.

General Motors sponsored the Most Valuable Player award at the 2014 Major League Baseball game in Minneapolis Minnesota, giving the winner the option of a Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible or a Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Mike Trout, Outfielder for the Los Angeles Angels, was named the MVP for the big game after leading his team to a big win, securing home field advantage in the world series for the American League representative. After doing so, Trout had his choice of the full sized Chevy truck or the C7 Stingray and – not surprisingly – the 22 year old baller went with the sexy sports car.

“Tonight, we honor the achievements of Mike Trout, the 2014 All-Star Game Most Valuable Player, while we showcase our own MVPs, the Corvette Stingray and Chevrolet Silverado,” said Paul Edwards, U.S. vice president, Chevrolet Marketing. “We hope many of our fellow baseball fans join us to help raise funds for a worthy cause.”

Mike Trout’s MVP Performance and an AL Win
Mike Trout was the starting left fielder for the American League in this week’s MLB All Star Game and the young gun made three plate appearances while in the game. Trout went 2 for 3 with a double and a triple, driving in two runs and scoring one of his own. The American League went on to win the by a score of 5 to 2 and in doing so, the American League team that plays in the World Series will have home field advantage regardless of their overall records.

General Motors didn’t go into much detail about Mike Trout’s new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray convertible, but I would expect that it is fitted with... [Read More]

C7's Ultimate Award: Sales Vs. Competitors

Jul 17, 2014 - 12:00 PM - by elegant
Corvette sales are now accounting for over 40% of the new sports car purchaser market, even though that included cars, such as the Mazda Miata, that cost a lot less.

The Corvette Stingray has been a great story for Chevrolet, winning an unprecedented number of awards including being named the 2014 North American Car of the Year. But the Stingray is also beating its rivals where it counts – the dealership sales floors.

Corvette sales have been on roll since production began last August. In the calendar year of 2014, Chevrolet has sold 17,744 Corvette Stingray coupes and convertibles, far outpacing the annual calendar year sales of the C6 Corvette during its final years of production.

GM Authority noted a report by the National Automobile Dealers Association showing the Stingray has far and away exceeded the sales of several rivals.

Where the Corvette Stingray had 17,744 deliveries through June, Porsche sold 5,169 911s and sales of the SRT Viper have tanked to a meager 354. Nissan’s 370Z which is far less expensive (MRSP $29,990) than the Stingray managed sales of 4,114.

The Stingray vs Viper comparison isn’t quite fair with the cross-town rival from Dodge boasting an 8.4L V10 engine and an MSRP greater than $100,000. The Porsche 911 seems to be a more natural competitor to the Stingray, but the cost to play in one starts at $84,300 compared to the Stingray’s starting MSRP of $53,995.

The NADA also notes that the situation for Corvette’s rivals won’t be getting better anytime soon. Chevrolet will start production of the the 2015 Corvette Stingray with a new 8-speed automatic transmission in August and in early 2015, the 650-hp 2015 Corvette Z06 will hit the streets and is guaranteed to keep the spotlight focused on America’s favorite sports car.
