General Motors has announced Brembo brake packages for Chevy, Cadillac, and GMC trucks and SUVs with 20-22 inch OEM wheels. These brake packages are sold directly from GM's dealer and parts network and feature the logo of the brand embossed on the calipers. Russ O’Blenes, GM's Director, Performance Parts, Variants and Motorsports Engineering, commented on the development of the brake packages adopted by GM, saying, “Testing for this product has included brake dyno testing, full GM noise/vibration/harness testing, and on-vehicle testing with over thousands of test miles. These tests are the same stringent validation requirements that a production brake system would go through.”

 

General Motors says the Brembo packages offer the following Features and Benefits:

· Don't void your factory new car warrenty

· Red Brembo® six-piston, fixed aluminum calipers with Chevrolet Performance, GMC or Cadillac logo

· 410 x 32mm (16.1-inch x 1.3-inch) Duralife™ rotors

· 84% increase in brake pad area and 42% increase in rotor area for increased system thermal capacity.

· Duralife™ rotors feature a hardened surface to reduce corrosion and provide quieter braking with less vibration.

· 31% reduction in pedal force and 12% reduction in pedal travel at max deceleration during GM Testing, providing improved pedal feel.

 

GM will offer the new Brembo six-pot calipers and upgraded Brembo Duralife rotors as a dealer-installed option on new vehicles, and as after-purchase upgrades at dealerships. Current owners can also order the parts kits directly at: Chevrolet.com/accessories, GMC.com/accessories, and Cadillac.com/accessories.

 

The kits are given the following part numbers:

o Chevrolet – PN #84263234: 2014+ Silverado and 2015+ Tahoe/Suburban

o GMC – PN #84263235: 2014+ Sierra 1500 and 2015+ Yukon/Yukon XL

o Cadillac – PN #84263236: 2015+ Escalade/Escalade ESV

 

“These big 6-piston Brembo brakes just look amazing. They fill 20-inch or 22-inch wheel with a high tech braking statement that only Chevrolet Performance can make.”
-Roger McCormack, Director, Accessories and Performance Parts Planning & Marketing
“Testing for this product has included brake dyno testing, full GM noise/vibration/harness testing, and on-vehicle testing with over thousands of test miles. These tests are the same stringent validation requirements that a production brake would go through.”
-Russ O’Blenes, Director, Performance Parts, Variants and Motorsports Engineering

 

GM says the MSRP of these brake kits is $2795. If you opt for these brakes, please send GM-Trucks.com your images and impressions.

      I'm about to install the Chevy Performance Brembo Brake Upgrade on our Silverado. Has anyone else installed this kit? Anyone thinking about it?
       
      At first glance, it seems pretty straightforward. After reading the manual, however, I'm realizing I need to take the front wheel bearings off to access the dust shield. Other than that, it seems to be a easy  rotor/caliper replacement.  Big thanks to @RyanbabZ71 for recommending a great brake bleeding tool!
       
      The front set is a true six-piston caliper. The rear calipers are stock calipers painted red to match the fronts. The size increase on the front rotors is significant. 
       
      I'm gathering the tools I'll need right now. Hopefully I can tear into it next week. I expect the entire process to take me at least a whole day and maybe two days depending on how it goes. Why so long? I'll be photographing and taking video of the entire process. Can't wait to share that with you all. 
       
      Check back in this thread for progress updates.

      Does anyone have the Brembo 6-piston brake calipers installed before or after the fact?
       
      My previous vehicle had factory Brembo brakes and it was awesome. It had great bite with no fuss. Anytime i get in a vehicle without Brembo brakes, I notice the difference. The default brakes on this truck sometimes feel inadequate to me. If the Brembo package wasn't so expensive, i would probably go for it.

      Did a search for this on the forum but saw only mentions of them.... Looking for some insight on the BBKs for my '16 Silverado... Wanting to here from current members/owners of BBKS what Pros, Cons, Comparisons, and experiences they've encountered with installing a BBK... Looking at some of the major brands like Brembo, Wilwood, Baer, StopTech, PowerStop, Rolloface, AP Racing, etc... Do you have just the front or rear installed? Drilled, Dimpled, Slotted, Combo rotors?

      The new 2015 Z06 will be among the fastest vehicles on the road, ever. Today Chevrolet announced the new 650-horsepower Corvette flagship equipped with an 8-speed automatic will accelerate from zero to 60-MPH in only 2.95 seconds.
       
      If purchased with a 7-speed manual, the car will be slightly slower, making the dash to 60 in 3.2-seconds.
       
      Quarter mile times are quick; just 10.95 seconds for the automatic and 11.2 seconds with the manual.
       
      Braking performance is also exceptional. 60-MPH to zero only takes 99.6-feet. Lateral acceleration tops out at 1.2G.
       
      These figures were achieved with the optional Z07 performance package, Brembo carbon ceramic brake rotors, and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.
       
      The 2015 Corvette Z06 starts at a bargain of $78,995 and goes on sale in early 2015.
       
       
      “The Corvette has long been known as America’s sports car,” said Mark Reuss, General Motors’ executive vice president, Global Product Development. “With the capability of the new Z06 rivaling the best performance cars in the world, we will also be America’s Supercar.”
