Its not that easy to find more pleasing vehicle than the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible. This model will deliver combination of huge amounts of power, torque, speed, performances with great looks, modern design and open top driving pleasure.
Since this is a iconic car and part of the muscle car segment most important is the engine and power it brings to driver. Under the hood of new Vette is the powerful 6.2 liter V8 unit that pumps out 460 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque which are transferred to the rear wheels making it one of the most interesting cars to drive. To achieve quite good performances we are getting seven speed manual transmission, it is a stick shift which can take a while before drivers get used to it but certainly will be rewarding.
With total weight of 3362 lbs or slightly above 1550 kg it offers decent power to weight ratio. As a result it is possible to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in about 3.9 seconds. Both coupe and convertible are almost identical, later one weights about 64 pounds or 30 kg more than coupe. Most things are identical and we are getting same suspension and brake rotors while the differences can be seen in safety belt mounting points repositioned so that it is possible to hide roof folding mechanism.
Review Of 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible
Many previous models of Corvette were delivered in convertible version also but this one comes with the fully electric roof. This roof can be operated under the speeds of less than 30 miles per hour or you can raise it or drop it using the key fob even when you are not in your car. Entire operation is done in slightly more than 20 seconds after which the roof is stored out of the sight. Special materials were used and the sound absorbing material will keep everything on the decent level when it comes to the noise in cabin.
One of the things that has been significantly improved on the C7 model is the interior. All new 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible comes with many improvements in this segment and finally we are getting all the features we need in a modern vehicle. Materials of higher quality and premium accents are all over the cabin and even it can’t compete against many cars from European companies it still comes with a great features.
2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible Price
All interested buyers need to know that the base price of the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible is set to $56,000 which is $3,000 more than the coupe version. Price increase was expected as it usually happens when the convertible is delivered. Amount of money you will need to give depends on the number of optional features that are chosen and it can easily go above $60,000.
Since there will be no major changes for this model compared to 2014th version there will be no huge presentation and we do expect it to be launched in the next few months. Deliveries should start before the end of this year and the competitive segment will be a good test area for this model.
