12 February 2015: 2015 CHEVROLET CORVETTE STINGRAY Badge (Insignia): Chevrolet has updated the Corvette coupe and convertible for 2015 with a host of subtle changes. Both models continue as top headliners at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show. Big news is an available eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission replaces previous six-speed. More carbon fiber components are available as trim and ground effects, including a carbon fiber tonneau insets for droptop models. Adding to the 2015 color palette is Shark Gray metallic and Daytona Sunrise Orange metallic. As the seventh-generation of “America’s Sport Car,” the C7 Stingray goes farther than ever, thanks to today’s advancements in design, technology and engineering. Matching the boldly sculptured exterior is a new 6.2 liter (376 cubic inch) LT1 V-8 engine that pumps out 450 horsepower and 450 lb.-ft. of torque to the rear wheels. Consumers have their choice of a six-speed paddle-shift automatic or seven-speed manual gearbox with “Active Rev Match” that anticipates gear selections and matches engine speed for perfect shifts every time. Either way, we’re talking 0-to-60 mph in less than four seconds. For 2015, the Corvette shares only two parts with the previous generation model. Underneath is an all-new frame structure and chassis that helped shift weight rearward for an optimal 50/50 weight balance. Lightweight features include a carbon fiber hood and removable roof panel; composite fenders, doors and rear quarter panels. Slide into the cockpit composed of premium materials, smaller-diameter steering wheel, standard dual, eight-inch configurable driver/infotainment screens and available color head-up display. This year, OnStar with 4G LTE and built-in Wi-Fi hotspot is offered with a 3GB/three-month trial. There are two new seat choices – each featuring a lightweight magnesium frame.
