Chevrolet is working on a serious machine for 2015. The 2015 Corvette Z06 is still in its initial stages of development. As of Jan. 2014, it has been out on the track once – and it broke the track record set by the ZR1. As of this time, Chevrolet has not released any specifications including weight, performance and price, though the auto manufacturer says it has a minimum of 625 horsepower, so you’ll have to keep your eye out on our blog or visit Classic Chevrolet to learn more as the information becomes available.
The suspension is the only thing that is not new for this vehicle. The 2015 Z06 has bigger brakes, wheels, tires and steel rotors. It also features an electronic differential and an expanded performance envelope.
It also has a different look including a new grille texture that allows more air to help cool the engine with the grille in place and ductwork on the sides to help cool the front brakes. The Z06 also has a new custom hood for more airflow to the engine.
Because the downforce in the front has to be counteracted, the rear features large spoilers that are manually adjustable so that the driver can adjust them for the driving experience he or she likes best.
The engine is a supercharged LT4. The supercharger is smaller but has more force. The engine also has variable valve timing, direct injection and cylinder deactivation. This is the first time that a supercharger has been paired with cylinder deactivation.
Something has to get all that power to the rear wheels – Chevrolet will give you a choice of a seven-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed automatic transmission specifically designed for the 2015 Z06.
The Z06 debuted at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show and it was there that Tadge Juechter, Corvette’s chief engineer, stated that the Z06 had “at least” 625 horsepower. Autoblog also got some great pictures of the new Z06 and it looks fast just sitting there.
Keep your eye on this space or visit Classic Chevrolet for more information about the 2015 Corvette Z06 as it becomes available. If you feel the need for speed and don’t want to wait until the 2015 is available, stop by the dealership to test drive the Stingray.

If you are in the market for a convertible, you might want to hold off until this spring – Corvette is releasing its new Stingray convertible, which will be available at Classic Chevrolet. The hardtop, which was released earlier this year, comes with a removable roof, but there is nothing better than driving with the top down.
When Chevrolet created the new Stingray, it designed the body as a convertible. Thus, unlike previous convertible models, there won’t be any retrofitting. The Stingray – hardtop or convertible – has an extra stiff frame and won’t need a lot of back bracing added. According to Tadge Juechter, Corvette’s chief engineer, the new Stingray and Stingray convertible models are 60 percent stiffer than last generation’s models.
You don’t even have to stop to put the top down – though you do have to slow down to at least 35 mph. Just press a button – there are no roof latches to mess with. Because the Stingray was originally designed to be a convertible, there are no compromises from the coupe. The frame is lightweight aluminum; carbon-fiber and carbon-nano-composite is also used, thus significantly lightening the convertible.
The Stingray features the LT1 engine backed by a seven-speed transmission with Active Rev Matching plus five different driver modes. The combination puts out 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. It reaches 1.03 g in corners if you are going fast enough. The Stingray goes from 0 to 60 in 3.8 seconds. Speed lovers just have to have this year’s Stingray!
The Stingray gets 29 mpg* on the highway. Good fuel economy and fast cars don’t usually go hand in hand, but Chevrolet outdid itself with the new model.
Keep your eye on this space for more information about the Stingray convertible or stop by Classic Chevrolet for more information, including release dates, security and safety features, entertainment features, convenience features and upgrade options.
If you haven’t been down to Classic Chevrolet to get your new Silverado, now is the time to do it! The truck wars have started and Chevrolet is stepping up to the plate with tons of new upgrades to the 2014 Silverado model. This is the first time in seven years that Chevrolet brought out a new truck. And what better way to get the new year started than with a new Chevrolet Silverado?
First off, you’ll see differences as you are walking up to the truck. The exterior features a taller aluminum hood, and that shaved 17 pounds of the total weight of the truck. You’ll also see the new grille, corner rear bumper steps, flush-fit door and squared-off wheel wells. Chevrolet also added sharper styling edges, giving the Silverado a new look.
The extended cab models – now called double cab models – have front-hinged doors instead of rear-hinged doors. This makes getting in and out of the rear easier. Plus, Chevrolet moved the B pillar forward so the rear entry is 4 inches wider. The rear seat also has an additional 2 inches of legroom.
The new bed is a roll-formed steel bed, and according to Chevy, it is lighter and stronger and the stamped steel beds. The tailgate has a locking EZ Lift/Lower system so it opens slowly when you open it. The bed also comes with a spray-in liner and lights for night loading.
The 2014 Silverado 1500 has lots of new features this year.
The engine upgrade features a 5.3-liter Ecotec engine that puts out 345 horsepower and features Active Fuel Management. When the truck is fitted with a 3.08 gear it gets 16 mpg* in the city and 22 mpg* on the highway. It is backed by a six-speed automatic transmission. This combination nets 383 pound-feet of torque and can tow up to 11,200 pounds if the truck is fitted with the maximum trailering package. Without the package, it will tow 9,600 pounds.
The Z71 has many standard features including off-road suspension, hill descent control, a trailering package, an auto-locking rear differential, power and heated outside mirrors, a power sliding rear window and stability control with trailer sway control among other standard features.
