2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Reviews, Prices and Pictures – Welcome to Neocarsuv.com, we will provide the latest information about the Chevrolet Corvette Concept. 2015 Chevrolet Corvette changes is one brand new car from Chevrolet that was released in 2015. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Release Date.
All-new for the 2015 model year, the Corvette Stingray enters the 2015 model year with a small but significant handful of updates, including an all-new 8-speed automatic transmission. Visually, however, it’s still the edgy new design that is at once instantly recognizable as a Corvette, but also completely new and fresh.
The Corvette hit showrooms in 1953 with a 150-cubic-inch six-pot under its hood and a 10-plus-second 0-to-60-mph time. It was no speed demon, but it was the foundation that the greatness that is the Corvette was build upon. The C1 Corvette was also the last time we saw a production model without pop-up headlights before the C6 generation debuted in 2005. In 2014, the C7 and its wild, European styling hit the market, giving Ferrari and other premium brands a reason to check out what’s going on in America. Following that up was the Z06 in 2015 that made all the Euro supercars stand up and take notice.
Styling takes the Corvette in new directions, even if around familiar themes, both inside and out. Sharp lines, crisp angles, and vents aplenty give a definite supercar air to the design that matches the car’s performance. It’s wide, low, and looks fast even at a dead stop. Inside, the Stingray’s design is much improved over the previous generation of the Corvette, and while nothing changes here for the 2015 model year, it retains its refreshing and surprisingly luxurious look.

That whiff of smoked Michelin you smell and the bawl of tortured rear tires you hear confirm that we’ve popped the clutch on the Corvette’s seventh generation. We uncorked it at GM’s Milford, Michigan, proving grounds, where we strapped our testing gear to the thing and came away feeling sorry for almost any car that meets it at a stoplight, the track, or a winding road.

With the new 2015 Corvette Stingray already in showrooms, we all knew that we were going to soon see a more powerful version. And now that has become a reality, as Chevrolet revealed the potent 2015 Corvette Z06 at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show.
2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Interior
The interior of the 2015 Corvette Stingray carries forward the substantial upgrades from the C6 launched last year. Improved materials, more modern design, and significant upgrades to technology such as the Drive Mode Selector and latest-generation Chevy MyLink infotainment help bring the Corvette on par with European and Japanese offerings in the highly competitive, but relatively low-volume super sports car segment.
The Z06 ushers in a host of new technologies for GM’s flagship sports car: An eight-speed automatic gearbox, a trick Performance Data Recorder system, a new 6.2-liter supercharged engine and Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup tires developed specifically for the highest-performance seventh-generation Corvette announced yet.
The aggressive look continues on the interior where Chevrolet also worked on differentiate it from the Stingray. Customers can choose between two different seat versions GT or Competition Sport seats depending on the driver’s needs. Unlike the Stingray, on the new Z06, the frame structure for both seats are made of magnesium, for greater strength and lower weight.
All Corvette trims get a fully-wrapped interior, where every surface is covered with premium, soft-touch materials. Available materials, depending on the trim level, include Napa leather, aluminum, carbon fiber and micro-suede. Customers also have two seating choices: a regular GT seat and a Competition Sport seat with more aggressive side bolstering for greater support on the track.
2015 Chevrolet Corvette Exterior
The 2015 Corvette Stingray is also more fuel efficient than the previous model, scoring 17 mpg city, 29 mpg highway, and 21 mpg combined with the seven-speed manual transmission; the paddle-shift eight-speed automatic is actually nearly as efficient, rating 16 mpg city and 29 mpg highway according to GM. The new seven-speed manual transmission adds a taller cruising gear for greater highway mileage, and cylinder-deactivation technology also helps both transmissions extract the most from each gallon.
Chevrolet replaced the standard tires and wheels with a new set that better suits the performance requirements of the Z06’s. After installing the wider wheels and tires. the design team then had to widen both the front and the rear fenders, which also gave the Z06 a more powerful stance. The rear look was also updated, with the taillights being pushed approximately three inches farther apart.
Triggering the clutch at 3700 rpm drops a torque bomb on the rear tires. It produces beneficial wheelspin as the clairvoyant e-differential balances left- and right-side thrust. Without exploiting launch control, which is handy but beatable, we clocked a best sprint to 60 mph of 3.9 seconds and 12.2 seconds at 117 mph in the quarter-mile. In case you’ve fallen behind on your stat-keeping, this is elite territory: about the same as the outgoing Corvette 427 convertible, a few tenths quicker than the Grand Sport, and faster than any Porsche Boxster or Cayman we’ve tested. The foes to avoid at stoplights are the new Jag F-type packing a supercharged V-8 and the Porsche 911S, both of which smoke the Stingray to 60 and through the quarter-mile by 0.2 to 0.3 second.
2015 Chevrolet Corvette Engine
Under the hood of the 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray is the same 6.2-liter LT1 V-8 engine introduced last year, still generating the same 455 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. A 7-speed manual transmission is also available, offering an enhanced version of its automatic rev-matching downshift feature for 2015. The new addition to the powertrain is an all-new, in-house designed and built 8-speed automatic transmission with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.
Making all this possible are several enhancements made to the standard LT1 engine block, with the most obvious being the supercharger. The all-new unit displaces 1.7-liters and features a 20,000-rpm redline 5,000 rpm more than the Corvette ZR1. The supercharger is smaller but spins faster, allowing for instantaneous power and is attributed to the LT4’s low rpm torque-production. Specially designed discharge ports increase airflow from the supercharger to the all-new aluminum cylinder heads.
And the 2015 Stingray is a very fast car, indeed. That 455-horsepower V-8 engine offers plenty of push to accelerate the car, hitting 0-60 mph in just 3.8 seconds or even faster at 3.7 seconds with the new 8-speed automatic. Quarter mile times are a mere 11.9 seconds with the automatic, or 12.0 with the seven-speed manual. Whether tackling the straights or the curves, the Stingray offers ample performance, with surprising grip, nimble reflexes, and a great deal of communication through the seat, pedals, and steering wheel, all of which inspires driver confidence. A Z51 package is available to further enhance the Stingray’s performance.
Updates for 2015 include an improved rev-matching algorithm for the manual gearbox, and an all-new eight-speed automatic with shift paddles that Chevy says beats Porsche’s PDK shift times by 80 milliseconds a relative eternity in the land of performance transmissions. In our time driving the car on the street and the track, the new eight-speed does a remarkable job whether clicking the paddles manually or letting the computer figure out which gear is best and it doesn’t feel in any way slower than the manual. In fact, it’s quicker to accelerate thanks to a wider gear spread, shaving a tenth of a second off the 60 mph and quarter-mile times, down to 3.7 seconds and 11.9 seconds respectively for the automatic.
