I'm a little confused about the ZF1 package. I have seen the following description of it online:

NEW! “ZF1 code” Appearance Package,
includes (Q7S) 5-split spoke, Silver-painted aluminum, 19″ front and 20″ rear wheels or (Q7T) Black aluminum, 19″ front and 20″ rear wheels, (XFJ) P245/35ZR19 front and P285/30ZR20 rear, performance tires and (TTV) carbon flash-painted rear spoiler and outside mirrors


But when looking at the online ordering guide (Model Information - Online Ordering Guide) I am seeing the following description:

NEW! ZF1 Appearance Package, includes (Q7S) 5-split spoke, Silver-painted aluminum, 19" front and 20" rear wheels, (XFJ) P245/35ZR19 front and P285/30ZR20 rear, performance summer-only tires and body-color Z51-style spoiler

So which is correct? I'm not a fan of carbon flash accents so I would prefer the online ordering guide description to be the correct one. My hunch is that it is the correct one but does anyone definitively know?

Looks like this is for those who want to get the silver Z51 wheels and color matched spoiler on base models.

Thank you but what I am wondering is which description is accurate. One source indicates that the mirrors and spoiler will be carbon flash colored and you will have a choice of silver painted or black aluminum Z51 style wheels. The other source mentions nothing about the mirrors but says the spoiler is body colored and the wheels are only silver painted aluminum.

I'm trying to figure out which is correct.

Very good question, "docprego!". In the rush to meet GM's self-imposed annual deadline for release of the ordering guide, it is not unusual to see a small amount of incomplete information (just as we saw last year for the 2014 StingRay in the first "Order Guide" release). Unfortunately, we are going to have to wait for further revisions/updates, but the latest info from GM is usually the best, so would go with the Order Guide unless changed later, especially since in the Order Guides's "New Features" section it states, for the ZF1, "body-color Z51-style rear spoiler."

As another example, at the Bash last month, were told that there would be an option for "yellow striped" wheels, but do not see that now in the Order Guide, so guessing that idea also has come and gone.

One more example of incomplete info, is that if you go in the section, "Equipment Groups: Mechanical," for Z-51, it does not include the Z-51's "mandatory for 2015" NPP dual-mode performance exhaust -- even though that combination is mentioned elsewhere in the guide, and been verbally repeated publicly, etc.

Thank you. The next logical question is, can I find pricing for this package yet?

Pricing on the 2015 StingRay and all the options is now estimated to become known in July (yes, that is after the orders go in for the first consensus -- June 26th). However, you can changed your order without a fee or time penalty all the way until BEFORE status code 3000, so my best recommendation is to guess what the price will be for an option, select what you want in your initial order, and change things in or out once pricing is known. As long as we are guessing, my best estimate is $1,795 for option ZF1. Sorry, not much help.

Actually I beg to differ. That was very much a great help. Thank you.

Does anything else thing the "F" in "ZF1" stands for "fifty?"
Most definitely. You get the Z51 look without actually purchasing the Z51 package. So ZF1 is almost Z51 in code name and actual package contents. Very clever Chevy.

Yeah, but why isn't the ZF1 available with chrome wheels?

Rodney, I'm pretty sure they will have that option. Especially since chrome rims are more expensive. More money = more profit

I think the order guide shows either silver or black as being available (if I understood it correctly).

I did a "ZF1 option" search on Chevy's 2014 Stingray website. The results:

Your search - what is ZF1 option on 2014 Stingray. - did not match any documents.
No pages were found containing "what is ZF1 option on 2014 Stingray.".

I'm puzzled..............

It's in the ordering guide for 2015.

Thanks. I know the Z51 option for 2014 did not clearly list everything included. I, and my salesman, were surprised, and pleased, when my car was delivered on May 1 that a body-colored blade spoiler was factory-installed.

I wonder how much of a price difference this option is compared to the Z51 package? I think if the difference is very small, why would someone get the ZF1 package instead of the Z51?

What if the price difference were huge?

I believe that there are a lot of folks just plain like the appearance of the Z-51 package, but do not need nor want it's capabilities. Since for 2015, GM has mandatorily added the $1,200 NPP dual-mode exhaust to the '15 Z-51 package, making its total price at least $5,200, and as I estimate that is the ZF1 packages will cost about $1,750, think a lot of folks who might wish to save $3,450, yet still get the same exterior appearance.

It is frustrating for all of us that we are going to have to wait about six to eight weeks for pricing!

That's a good point. Forgot they made NPP standard on the 2015 Z51s.
