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 for the sixth-generation ZR1, which only had 630. Considering the ZR1 cost north of $110k, a sub-$80,000 Z06 sounds like a bargain.

Here's some quick details on Z06 pricing and packaging:

  • Standard magnetic ride control, performance traction control, and electronic limited slip differential
  • Optional Performance Data Recorder (PDR)
  • Standard heads-up display
  • Aluminum frame is 20% stiffer than previous Z06
  • Carbon Fiber Ground Effects Package [$2,995] Adds carbon fiber front splitter, carbon fiber rocker panels, and a larger rear spoiler
  • Z07 Performance Package [$7,995] Adds an adjustable version of the carbon fiber ground effects package, Brembo carbon ceramic-matrix brake rotors, and Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup tires
  • Available in 1LZ, 2LZ, and 3LZ trim packages
  • Optional leather wrapped interior, competition sports seats, carbon fiber interior trim, and a visible carbon fiber roof for the Coupe
  • Several exterior color options and brake caliper color options
  • Two transmission options - 7-speed manual or 8-speed automatic

The 2015 Corvette Z06 amounts to a more powerful but a-la-carte version of the previous ZR1. Enthusiasts rejoice!

Thats really not too much of a premium over the last gen z06. I have been vocal about the price increases from GM on their vehicles but this doesn't seem to bad to me, but maybe thats because I expected a bigger price hike.

Now give the ZL 1 around 850-900hp/tq and we'll call it a day ☺

      Last night I found my passenger side carpet saturated with water in my 2015 Silverado 1500. I lifted the carpet up and found the underlay soaked and a pool of water in the floor pan. After searching the internet I found this is a common problem with many potential sources. The shark fin antenna, leaking seams behind the front fender, through the firewall, and from under the cowl by the windshield wipers. I don’t think mine is coming from the radio antenna or from behind the fender as it is running straight down the firewall from behind the glove compartments. It is raining steady here today and my truck has not moved and it is a steady stream running from behind the glove box. Does anyone have pictures or a better description of where I should be looking on the firewall or under the wiper cowl?

      My Suburban's sound system has recently gotten blown out. Does anybody know the size for the front and rear door speakers? I'm considering on putting an aftermarket sound system into the SUV.

      Hello all,
       
      This is my first post on this forum.  Last year I bought a 2009 Chevy Silverado 1500 Ext cab LT with a 5.3l V8 that is Flexfuel capable.  Well, I never intended to use flex fuel, but last week, I did so on the spur of the moment.  We drove about 3/4 of the tank gone.  Then as I was pulling up to the gas station to refill before going out of town for work, my truck's idle began dropping and feeling like it is about to stall out at idle.  This happens whether park is engaged or not.  I filled up, put some seafoam in my tank and drove about 1.5 hours to work.  It continued to idle like this all throughout the trip and even later when I went out and sat at idle while on my break.  What could be the problem? I can't imagine that an engine that is meant for flex fuel could get that messed up by it.  A side note: we had the transmission rebuilt in January, just in case that makes a different.  It has only been a few weeks since last oil change.  All fluids were checked and filled up at that time and have been checked a couple of times since.

      Just wanted to post on here, as I have seen no less than a thousand posts with questions about the 6L80E, specifically about the power threshold of a stock unit. I have a 2014 GMC Sierra SLT Crew Cab Standard Bed stock 3.42 gears stock drive shaft stock 20" rims/tires 6.2L fully forged top/bottom end "Armageddon Twin Nagasaki's" (GT3582R's) e-boost 2 gauge Z06/LT4 fuel system 365lph in-tank Armageddon fuel pump QTP exhaust cut-outs and laid down 965rwhp/850 rwtq on a mustang dyno with 18psi on 116 race fuel (cut-outs open). I say all of this because the stock transmission detonated the 4-5-6 shaft (intermediate hub) near the splines. I took it to a "race shop" that said they would upgrade as much as they could; and was told at the time, there were limited aftermarket parts available for the 6L80E. This was mid 2018 with less than 10K miles on the truck and about 500 miles on the engine/turbo build and I discovered that was not entirely true. I drove the truck after their work,  with "spirited road driving" while the roads were wet no less. Long story short; they f'd me and I detonated the 4-5-6 stock intermediate shaft again within 100 miles and no traction at all. They apparently replaced all parts that were broken with stock parts! Moving on, I took my truck to a different shop and researched my a** off and found PATC Transmissions. I had a warm and fuzzy after speaking with them and ordered the Phoenix Level 4 Master Rebuild kit among a few other minor accoutrements and re-tuning of my TCM by Mike from Century Automotive. It is now APR 2019 and I am about 1 1/2 weeks away from having the my billet planetary gear mailed to me; for the new, more reputable shop in my area to install all of this PATC bada**ery. If anyone is truly interested, I will post new info once I put the new Phoenix Master Rebuild kit through the ringer with the full weight/horsepower/torque of my particular application...I hope this helps if there are some lost souls out there that may be headed down the same long. hard. road. of a "full send" like myself! Please post if you have questions/comments/concerns; as I have "been there done that and forgot the t-shirt" with the L86/6L80E so far.
