New 2015 Corvette Z06 detailed in Detroit

Supercharged V8 under the hood of a track day missile

Jalopnik has offered up some details and a nice picture of the 2015 Chevrolet Z06. After months of speculating, it’s nice to see the actual car. The Z06 has a LT4 V8 engine that is supercharged and produces around 625hp and 635 pound-feet of torque. GM has offered no performance numbers on the car.

GM did say that the new Z06 was faster around its test track than the old ZR1. The car is tipper to come in three trim levels with the top of the line called the Z07. Each version has different aero bits apparently including an adjustable portion of the rear wing to improve aerodynamics.

The car has a removable roof panel and has carbon ceramic brakes. The new Z06 is said to be 60% stiffer than the last version. The 2015 Z06 will come with an 8-speed auto or manual transmission. The auto isn’t a dual clutch unit like you might expect. Pricing and other details are unknown.

2015 Chevrolet Suburban

Sep 23 2014 12:26am CDT | Source: The Car Connection

Tracing its roots back to the 1930s, the Chevrolet Suburban is the original SUV, and the oldest nameplate currently on sale today. While the 2015 Chevy Suburban shares very little with its original progenitor, it does much to push the name and the SUV into new territory. For this year's new 2015 Suburban, Chevy has turne ...

2015 Chevrolet Tahoe

Sep 23 2014 12:21am CDT | Source: The Car Connection

While the full-size SUV may never be as popular again as it was two decades ago, there remains a niche for the truck-based vehicles. Even as larger crossovers take up more of the people-moving slack, full-size true SUVs remain essential for those looking to tow and haul heavy loads. The 20 ...

1955 Chevy drag racer rolls his car, walks away after going through windshield

Sep 22 2014 7:10pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Motorsports, Coupe, Performance, Safety, Videos, Chevrolet, Racing A classic '55 Chevrolet and a second-gen Camaro line up for a drag race on what looks to be a beautiful day, but by the end of the run, it's pure carnage with the '55 rolling down the track and its driver's legs sticking out of the windshield. Thankfully, the guy is still alive; in fact he even walks away before safety crews could get to his destroyed car. Still, this is still one hor ...

RI man makes bid for World's Worst Driver title by getting 4 DUIs in 30 hours

Sep 22 2014 4:58pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Government/Legal How? That is the dominant question on the minds of the Autoblog staff after reading this astonishing tale out of Rhode Island. How did a man get arrested four times for driving under the influence in just 30 hours? How could he afford to have four vehicles impounded? And how could police let it get to the point that he'd have four arrests in such a short period? ...

GMC Sierra Elevation Edition

Sep 22 2014 1:00pm CDT | Source: Top Speed

GMC announced its reentry back into the sport truck game. However, its submission to the competition is decidedly drab. Now before you run for the pitchforks, let me explain. GMC has some history in the sport truck market, namely the 1991 Syclone and 1992 through 1993 Typhoon. Both the Sonoma-based Syclone and Jimmy-based Typhoon used a turbocharged and highly modified version of the 4.3-liter V-6, sported lowered suspensions, bigger brakes, and an all-wheel-dri ...

Filed under: Videos, Acura, Chevrolet, GM, Honda, Misc. Auto Shows, Translogic A few years ago, the hot term in car connectivity was V2V, or vehicle-to-vehicle communication. Now, another techy abbreviation has taken hold: V2X, or vehicle-to-anything-you-can-imagine. We head to the ITS World Congress in Detroit Michigan to see how the cars of the future will communicate with each other, and the world around them, with demonstrations from Honda, GM and NXP.Continue reading Translog ...

Hybrid Highway: BMW goes Electric

Sep 22 2014 11:43am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

This week, we’re taking an off-ramp from the Hybrid Highway for a look at BMW’s charge into the electric vehicle segment. Not a full detour mind you, as one of the two EV offerings from the German luxury automaker is a true hybrid, while the other can be outfitted with a gasoline engine to charge the on-board lithium battery pack. But as the gas engine does not directly turn the wheels, it is considered a range-extender rather than a hybrid. That latter vehicle is the BMW i3, which is ...

2015 Toyota Camry

Sep 22 2014 10:58am CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Sedan, Toyota, First Drives Every car has its definitive year. Whether it be the Chevrolet Corvette, the Ford Mustang, or yes, even the ubiquitous Toyota Camry, 10.2 million of which have been sold since 1983, every car has its year. For the Camry, that year was 1992. With son-of-Lexus styling, a clear sense of purpose and a parent company that had hit its stride as the purveyor of faultlessly reliable family transportation devices, the Camry got its legs in 1992. It' ...
