Z06_pricing

The high-performance Corvette Z06 is back for 2015 with an entry-level price not horribly inflated compared to the previous-generation Z06, and that's a welcome surprise for those waiting to buy one. The new 650-horsepower Z06 is the most-powerful production car GM has ever produced; it starts at $78,995 with destination for a coupe and $83,995 for the newly available convertible Z06.

The entry price seems like a bargain at just $2,400 more than the outgoing 2013 Z06 considering there's 145 more hp, a 20 percent stiffer aluminum chassis plus technology and quality strides made inside the car.

2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Gets New Eight-Speed Transmission; We Drive It

2015 Chevrolet Corvette 8-spd 006

Chevrolet has been enjoying amazing success with the redesigned Corvette Stingray, delivering 37,000 of the 2014 model to buyers, nearly tripling sales of the iconic two-seat sports car overnight. Now 2014 model production has ended, and the company is ready to begin shipping 2015 models out the door of the Bowling Green, Ky., manufacturing plant. The new model is largely the same as the 2014, with one notable exception: The 2015 Stingray receives a new General Motors-designed eight-speed automatic transmission, joining the seven-speed manual and replacing the old six-speed automatic.

Why upgrade to a new transmission so soon after launching the popular Stingray? The reason is simple: The upcoming Corvette Z06 and its 650-horsepower, supercharged LT4 engine make more power than the current six-speed can handle without fragging itself. No suitable transmission could be found from a supplier to both handle the Z06's power and fit in the Corvette's unusual packaging, so GM made its own, and buyers of any Corvette variety will now get the eight-speed when they opt for an automatic.

Recall Alert: 2005-2007 Chevrolet Corvette

2007-chevy-corvette

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 111,889 model-year 2005-07 Chevrolet Corvette sports cars; GM says that Corvettes from the 2008-13 model years are also covered under a Customer Satisfaction Program.

The Problem: Over time, the under-hood electrical center housing could expand due to engine heat, causing the headlamp control circuit to bend. This could cause the wire to break and the low-beam headlamps to malfunction, increasing the risk of a crash.

According to GM, this issue does not affect the high-beam headlamps, marker lamps, turn signals, daytime running lamps or fog lamps. The automaker has reported "several hundred" complaints related to this issue, but no accidents.

The Fix: Dealers will inspect and replace the affected parts for free.

What Owners Should Do: GM has not yet provided an owner notification schedule. Concerned owners can contact Chevrolet at 800-222-1020 for more information.
