Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

From the 2014 North American International Auto Show, Cars.com's Kelsey Mays takes a look at the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06.

What Is the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette?

The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is a rear-wheel-drive sports car available in coupe and convertible body styles. The convertible competes with the Nissan 370Z roadster, Audi S5 cabriolet, Ford Shelby GT500 Mustang and Porsche 911 cabriolet, while the coupe competes with the Nissan GT-R and Porsche 911 Carrera 4S. Both the Corvette coupe and convertible are available in three trims: the base Stingray, the Stingray Z51 and the high-powered Z06.

What's New on the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette?

For 2015, the Corvette adds an available eight-speed automatic transmission, a Wi-Fi hot spot with 4G LTE internet connectivity (subscription required) and two new design packages. The Corvette coupe can be equipped with a Pacific Design Package that includes black and red wheels, red brake calipers, black racing stripes, carbon-style exterior accents, sport seats and a car cover. The Corvette convertible is offered with an Atlantic Design Package that has gray exterior accents, a Z06-style splitter, custom luggage and unique wheels. In addition, a Performance Data Recorder overlays telemetry info over high-definition video.

How Does the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Compare to Other Sports Cars?

The Corvette Stingray and Porsche 911 are similar in many ways, but the 911 costs significantly more, and while the Audi S5 Cabriolet has more practical features, it's a lesser performance vehicle overall. Upgraded Porsche models like the 911 Carrera 4S offer a better balance of performance and comfort than the Corvette Z51, but you'll pay close to double for them.

What Features in the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Are Most Important?

The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette comes standard with a 455-horsepower, 6.2-liter V-8, and its power output increases to 460 hp with an available performance exhaust. A Magnetic Selective Ride Control adaptive suspension system is available, while the Z51 Performance Package adds a dry-sump oil system, unique suspension tuning, an electronic limited-slip differential, transmission and differential heat exchangers, performance brakes and more air deflectors. The Corvette Z06 has a 6.2-liter V-8 engine with 650 hp and 650 pounds-feet of torque, a unique grille, available Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes and adjustable aerodynamic elements. Throughout the model line, a seven-speed manual transmission is standard and an eight-speed automatic is optional.

Standard Corvette Stingray features include a carbon fiber hood with a functional hood vent, LED taillights, Xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights with LED accents, 18-inch front wheels, 19-inch rear wheels, leather seating for two, magnesium seat frames, comfortable GT seats or Competition sport seats, 8-inch screens in the instrument panel and the middle of the dashboard, and a smaller-diameter steering wheel. Available features include 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels with the Z51 Performance Package, a premium stereo with two subwoofers, and a color head-up display.

The Chevrolet Corvette coupe has a carbon-fiber removable roof panel, while the convertible swaps that out for a power-folding soft-top with sound-absorbing padding and a glass rear window. The top can be activated via key fob and operates up to 30 mph.

Should I Buy the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette?

The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette coupe and convertible both benefit from dual-mode exhaust, a comfortable base suspension, up-to-date style and extensive options. If you're considering the Z51 Package, note that it offers solid, responsive handling but sacrifices ride quality. The touch-pad buttons used to open the doors are unintuitive, and the configurable gauges can easily become overloaded with information.

Great performance bargain

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
