Chevrolet will price the 2015 Corvette Z06 Coupe at $78,995 and the convertible at $83,995. Laying claim as the fastest and most powerful Corvette ever built, the Z06 has a supercharged 6.2L LT4 engine producing 650-horsepower. That's more horsepower than was spec'd the sixth-generation ZR1, which only had 630. Considering the ZR1 cost north of $110k, a sub-$80,000 Z06 sounds like a bargain.

General Motors has confirmed that every 2015 full-size truck and suv equipped with the 6.2L EcoTec3 engine will be offered with a brand new GM developed 8-speed transmission.

The new Hydra-Matic 8L90 eight-speed is similar in size to the outgoing 6-speed and will allow lower rear axle ratios for improved fuel economy. 
 
Fuel economy and additional specifications for 8-speed equipped vehicles will be announced later this year.

15 Silverado/Sierra 1500 towing capacity lower...

Jun 19 2014 08:48 AM | Zane in News

General Motors has announced that starting with the 2015 model year it will report towing capacity determined using SAE J2807 recommended testing practices. The more rigorous testing procedure has been held at arms length by the big three for years. Pickup producers have long overstated the capacity of their trucks using internal test procedures. The new J2807 standard brings everyone up to the same playing field. This means every pickup is finally being rated for towing capacity in the exact same manner from the 2015 model year forward. 
 
That's great news for consumers but the much more rigorous test lowers the "official" capacity numbers that many automakers love to throw around in ads.The Silverado and Sierra 1500 will see their towing capacity adjusted slightly down for the 2015 model year due to the new testing requirements. Only one Silverado and Sierra configuration, a 2-wheel-drive double cab with the optional 6.2L engine and the Max-Trailering package, will retain the prior year's rating of 12,000lbs.

No further information on the optional 2016 2.8L Duramax diesel engine was released at this time.

JOTD: Ah, to be Six again...

Off-Topic Today, 03:17 PM
A man was sitting on the edge of the bed, watching his wife, who was looking at herself in the mirror. Since her birthday was not far off he asked what she'd like to have for her birthday. "I'd like to be six again", she replied, still looking in the mirror. On the morning of her birthday he got up early, made her a nice big bowl of Lucky Charms, and then took her to Six Flags theme park. What a day! He put her on every ride in the park; the Death Slide, the Wall of Fear, the Screaming Roller Coaster, everything there was. Five hours later they staggered out of the theme park. Her head was reeling and her stomach felt upside down. He then took her to a McDonald's where he ordered her a Happy Meal with extra fries and a chocolate shake. Then it was off to a movie, popcorn, a soda pop, and her favorite candy, M&M's. What a fabulous adventure! Finally she wobbled home with her husband and collapsed into bed exhausted. He leaned over his wife with a big smile and lovingly asked, "Well Dear, what was it like being six again?" Her eyes slowly opened and her expression suddenly changed. "I meant my dress size, you retard !!!!"   The moral of the story: Even when a man is listening, he is gonna get it wrong ...

'14 GMC Sierra-Transmission Slips

New Member Introductions Today, 01:59 PM
Hey guys!  I just bought a 2014 Sierra back in July and so far, love it, most of the time; however, there a few qualms I have with interior design as well as drive.   Does anyone else feel a pretty heavy lag when you give it gas (such as when you pass someone)?   Also, when I am driving, lots of time downshifting, I feel the transmission really kick  (normally between 2nd & 3rd gear).  I'm assuming it's a slip, and probably related to the computer- as my dad had this problem in his 07 Suburban- but has anyone else had this problem?   I'm pretty ticked that this a new truck and I'm already feeling the "tell-tale" signs of Chevy/GMC's transmission woes, and plan to take it into my dealership this week, but wanted to hear if anyone else has experienced this.

4x4 engine lag on beach

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service Bulletins Today, 12:38 PM
I went to the Outer Banks and drove on the beach in Corolla with my brand new 4x4 CC SLT 3.42 and it wasn't pretty.  I did not get stuck, but I came very close to it a few times.  I do have stock 20" rims and tires and did not deflate the tires.   On the harder slightly compacted sand near the surf, I was fine and had no problems.  But once I got onto the dry sandy stuff, in 4x4 auto mode the engine lag was crazy,  I was not able to go faster no mater how much I floored it.  It slipped my mind to lock it into 4x4 high, it's been a while since I've owned a pickup.  Even my previous Honda pilot handled better.   I think it was on 4x4 auto....maybe that was the problem, but I've never experienced the lag like I did with this truck.   My truck has less than 3500 miles and has been babied the entire time.  No issues so far.  Is this normal?

no cab voltage

2000-2006 & 2007-2014 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 2500HD/3500HD Today, 11:11 AM
I recently tried to start my truck, got nothing when I turned the key. I noticed that I had no dome lights, no electric door locks, no headlights, no hazards. Checked voltage at the battery and alternator - 13.4 volts. Checked voltage at the terminal block on the firewall - all read 12.2 volts. Checked the link on that red wire behind the glovebox - its good. Where do I go from here?

Rattle in dash behind lower glove box

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service Bulletins Today, 09:24 AM
Has anyone else experienced the rattle in the dash that is either in the lower glove box or behind it?? I have had it into the dealership 2 times for this first time they tried tightning up the hindges that did not work. Second time they replaced the lower glove box now its worse.   I removed the upper and lower glove box and the rattle is still present early in the morning but then goes away after the truck is driven about 20 miles. Any thoughts??

Supersprings SSA8 install

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & Modifications Today, 09:23 AM
I installed the SSA8 with mounting kit this morning...took about an hour with hand tools.  Initially I was going to follow the compromise install whereby you place the front brackets on the lowest setting and rear on the highest.  That resulted in the rear being 40 1/2".  I lowered the rear shackles to their lowest preload position and this is the final:   Before F 36 1/2 R 38 3/8"   After R 39 7/8"     Rake is a little much.  Truck definitely rides like a truck.  Maybe the SSA5s were the best choice but... oh well.  Next mod is 5100s raised to middle ring.  I want to preserve fuel economy though..  Anyone know how to lower the front air dam without it looking real obvious?

Tire PSI & MPG's

2014/2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 29 Aug 2014
   Well I've had my truck for about 2 weeks now and am driving it a lot for work.  I drive 180 miles per day.  Tampa to Orlando.  I now have about 1,100 miles on the truck.    The MPG's on the truck overall are good.  I'm happy with them.  I have a 5.3L, 3.42 gear, 4x4, CC/SB config with SRA tires.   I set my tires pressure cold, as in early Saturday morning before the sun hits the truck and after it's been sitting all night, to 35psi on a known dial gauge that is very good.   My TPMS read-out shows 33 cold, and up to 37 when running during the day down the interstate.  I noticed in the mornings/at night pressures stay at 34-35 on the TPMS on the Hwy and mileage is not as good as it is in the afternoons when the sun is out and it's hotter and the PSI's are 36-37.  That's the only variable I can see.   Mileage at night/morning is 18-19mpg.  Same road, same speed, etc at 5pm and I'm gettings 20 solid.    1- How accurate is the TPMS system? 2- Does the TPMS system show actual PSI, or correct for temp any?  IE- I set them to 35 cold on my dial gauge, when I see 37 on the TPMS at 75mph, is that actual 37? 3- I notice the rea...

GMC/Borla vs Borla Cat Back

Gen V Small Block Engine, Drivetrain, & Exhaust 10 Apr 2014
I have a 2014 Sierra Denali 6.2.  So, I am actively researching the difference between a GMC/Borla sold by GM with GM Part # 19303345 and a Cat Back system sold by Borla with a Borla part #.    What I know:   GMC offers a Borla 6.2 system part # 19303345 dual side exit. (They also have dual split rear) Borla does not offer a system for the 6.2 yet.  I called them and they said it will be 7-14 days to get an answer.  (Also, said that 2 weeks ago and again yesterday, so who knows.) My GMC dealer doesn't know the difference between GM/Borla systems and regular Borla.  They told me that Borla makes them specifically for GMC trucks and they would not be exactly the same as  what you would get if you ordered from Borla direct. The Borla rep doesn't know the difference either, but mimicked the statement that a system from Borla would not be the same as what they build for GMC.  I was told to call the OE rep for Borla and find out what the difference is.  I will post my findings as they come.   In the mean time, does anyone know the difference between a Borla cat back system bought from GMC direct and one bought from Borla direct?

Bed Liner Discussion

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & Modifications 30 Aug 2013
I know these have all been mentioned, but I wanted to start a topic specifically to talk about bed liners for the 2014.   I cannot make up my mind about what I want to do with my truck bed.   I thought I wanted a color matched Line-X spray in liner.  Pics look nice from what I have seen, but I haven't seen one in my truck color yet to really know if I would like it color matched.   I also like the looks of the BedRug.  I believe someone posted a pic of it installed in their 2014 and it look very nice.  Please feel free to post it again in this thread.  :-)   While looking at the BedRug,  I see they also make something called the BedTred Pro.     It installs like a bedrug, but looks like a spray in liner.  Anyone gone this route, and if so what are your thoughts compared to the other 2 options I mentioned?   Thanks for any input.

Anyone have black tip Corsa?

Gen V Small Block Engine, Drivetrain, & Exhaust Yesterday, 06:34 PM
Can't find a single person online or video to see it. Autoanything was out of the regular stainless for the 6.2L CC SB so just ordered the black tips. $1066 out the door with $100 corsa rebate for $966. Couldn't pass it up, I am hoping they go great with my gray'd out look of the iridium/all terrain rims on the denali and plastidip gmc emblems. Added pics would be great just as a thanks! Not being shipped for another week.
