The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Is Better Than Ever, Here's Why

The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray was the most awarded vehicle on the planet last year– including being named the 2014 North American Car of the Year. For 2015, the Corvette Stingray packs even more punch with a host of new features, colours and options, making it easier than ever for customers to customize Stingray how they’d like.

Naturally, the top-of-the-line Corvette Z06 has returned for 2015 and it’s 6.2L LT4 V8 packs a mighty 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. Elsewhere, customers can now order the Stingray with a Performance Data Recorder
, OnStar with 4G LTE, and two new design packages.

Stingray drivers can now order their vehicles with either the Atlantic or Pacific Design Packages, both of which feature a unique combination of colours, parts, and accessories.

The Atlantic Design Package is inspired by the luxury and performance of private jets seen at European vacation destinations. It is offered exclusively on Z51-equipped convertibles in either 2LT or 3LT trim levels and features:
