Corvette Of The Day: 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
Never one to rest on their laurels, Chevrolet knew that the 2015 Corvette Stingray would have to be even better. After all, earlier generations of the Corvette – going back to the second-generation Corvette Stingray – had special edition variants, and higher performance production models that could provide consumers with blistering speed and track-ready performance.
The most notable improvement available to the 2015 Corvette was the introduction of an all-new eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission. This transmission, which replaced the six-speed automatic featured in the 2014 model, was offered on both the Corvette Stingray as well as the 2015 Z06 coupes and convertibles. The transmission, dubbed the Hydra-Matic 8L90, was developed and built by General Motors, and delivers world-class shift times that rival the best dual-clutch designs anywhere in the world.
