Base Powertrain

The introductory powertrain on the 2015 Corvette Stingray is a 6.2L LT1 crate engine with V8 power. This innovative design uses a special rear transaxle layout, which provides optimal weight balance for a high-performance engine. Designed to be compact and lightweight, this engine has a lower center of gravity and  hoodline for enhanced aerodynamics feel. What’s more, it’s rated at a whopping 460 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque, quite impressive figures for a base engine.

Transmission Options

The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette’s standard engine is paired to a seven-speed manual transmission with automatic rev-matching for increased fuel efficiency, getting you an EPA-estimate 29 mpg along the highway – noteworthy MPG ratings for a performance car of this caliber. You also can opt for an eight-speed automatic transmission with dual-clutch performance for similar mileage. Either one you select, your Corvette will be equipped with launch control to help you accelerate to 60 mph from a standing start in just three seconds.

Performance Package

Choose the Z51 Performance Package for the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette, and you’ll experience revolutionary performance. Your Corvette will come equipped with a dry-sump oil system for greater oil capacity, a lower center of gravity, and higher G-force cornering than ever before. If you want the best of the best in performance, tacking on this package is the way to go.

Advanced Engine

Purchase the Corvette Z06, and under the hood you’ll find a supercharged 6.2L V8 engine that produces a thundering 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. You’ll have your pick of either transmission listed above.
