2015 Chevrolet Corvette
2015 Chevrolet Corvette

New for 2015

The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette enters its second year, and a host of changes come with it: the six-speed automatic is replaced by an eight-speed; the Atlantic convertible and Pacific coupe Design packages are introduced; a Performance Data Recorder is available; various appearance add-ons are now available; and, last but not least, the Z06 coupe and convertible are introduced.

Vehicle Overview

The Corvette is Chevrolet’s flagship sports car, now in its seventh generation. By combining handling, power, reasonable fuel economy, and a world-class interior the Corvette remains a performance bargain, fitting above the capable Camaro in Chevrolet’s lineup.

Summary

The 2015 Corvette Stingray enters the second year of the C7, which debuted last year. Joining the lineup is the range-topping Z06, which has two firsts for the model: an optional eight-speed automatic and a convertible*. Power on the standard Stingray coupe and convertible is provided by a 6.2-liter V-8 that makes 455 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque or 460 hp and 465 lb-ft with an available performance exhaust. Pairing the LT1 with the seven-speed manual nets an EPA-estimated 17/29 mpg city/highway; the eight-speed automatic gets 16/29 mpg, improving over the replaced six-speed auto by one-mpg on the highway.
A modified version of the LT1 gets fitted with a supercharger and gets renamed the LT4, which boosts power from the 6.2-liter V-8 to 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. EPA-estimated fuel economy is a “you-didn’t-buy-it-to-save-gas” 13/23 mpg that is nonetheless impressive considering its high-power rivals, with potential for more savings as the LT4 retains the LT1’s cylinder deactivation technology.
The Atlantic convertible and Pacific coupe Design Packages are now available on Z51 equipped cars, which serve to show what the 2015 Corvette Stingray can be if taken to either extreme: Atlantic is the nicely appointed touring car, and the Pacific is the high-performance track edition. The Performance Data Recorder is a system that records and allows owners/drivers to play back lap video with times, speed, audio, brake input, steering input, and throttle. It’s a neat system that also allows you to record the valet who parks it, or anyone who drives it while you’re away.
The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has not been crash tested by the NHTSA or the IIHS.

What We Think

The eight-speed automatic in the Corvette is quite good, and the near instantaneous shifts are something we typically associate with Porsches. On the track, the shift logic is also excellent, but we noted some hesitation as the computers and sensors calculated how much power to put down.
Your interaction with the C7 is as straightforward as a handshake. The ergonomics feel right; the switchgear is clear and functional; you can see out of the cabin; and the seats hold you comfortably in place … The materials look and feel good, and the interfaces manage to be modern yet not gimmicky, a concept that more and more carmakers are finding elusive these days.
From what we’ve experienced with the 2014 Corvette, and the latest revision of the automatic, which added two gears, we can’t wait to drive the ZO6 in all of its forms.

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Bowling Green Assembly Plant
GM will invest $439 million into its Bowling Green, Ky., assembly plant that produces the Chevrolet Corvette. The investment will cover a new paint shop, among other upgrades, and comes in addition to the roughly $135 million the automaker has invested over the past four years in preparation for C7 Corvette Stingray production and upgrades to the Performance Build Center.

Vice President Joe Biden is known for speaking his mind, so it's no surprise he did just that at a commencement speech to Yale students this past weekend. This time he sounded off on Corvettes, saying that they are "better than Porsches."
Corvette Z06 Vs McLaren 650S Spider 21
My, oh my, what spoiled little brats we have become. Seems it was only yesterday when I was shaking my head in reverence and amazement at the 1984 Porsche 930 Turbo, a whale-tailed thoroughbred cranking out a mind-bending 330 horsepower and capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in—brace for hyperspace!—under 5 seconds! I remember the collective awe. “Well, pardner,” we’d say, “a man cain’t go no faster’n that.”
2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Vs. 2015 Nissan GT R Nismo On Head 2 Head
On the newest episode of Head2Head from our friends at Motor Trend, two performance giants butt heads, resulting in one of the best automotive showdowns in quite a while. Presenter Carlos Lago gets some quality seat time behind the wheel of the indomitable 2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo and the mind-bending 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, resulting in a comparison many enthusiasts have been clamoring for.
2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Engine
Beginning in 2010, General Motors offered buyers of 2011 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and Corvette ZR1 models a unique opportunity. For an added fee, the owners could take a trip to the GM Performance Build Center and have the chance to build their own engine for their upcoming Z06 or ZR1. Unfortunately, the program was discontinued with the introduction of the 2014 C7 Corvette, and the end of production for the C6 Z06 and ZR1.
