The completely redesigned 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe is now available at Red River Chevrolet, and this SUV is amazing!  The full-size Tahoe SUV remains V8 powered to handle everything from the trails, to the highway, to towing and everything in between.

Just by looking at the new Chevy Tahoe, differences from the previous body style are apparent.  The exterior lines on the body are sculpted for a contemporary design with uniquely shaped headlamps, chrome grille, and an aerodynamic spoiler.  The interior has some of the most drastic changes however.  Technology is in no short supply with this SUV.  A full-color Driver Information Screen is located in the middle of the instrument cluster offering the driver several difference pieces of information and control metrics for things such as the entertainment, phone, and navigation.  Connecting your phone has never been easier thanks to the latest generation MyLink infotainment system.  The Tahoe offers up to Six USB ports and up to twelve charging locations for those portable devices.

 

More technology resides in the safety features in this Luxury SUV.  Some of these technologies include Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning, Cross-Traffic Alert, Vibration alerts in the seat, and of course – OnStar technology!

Supercharged 2015 C7 Corvette Z06

2015-chevrolet-corvette-z06-designed-downforce-cnt-well-1-1480x551-01

Chevrolet has announced the most track-capable Corvette in the history of the car. The 2015 C7 Corvette Z06 is offering new performance for this year. The power behind the Vette is coming from the LT4 engine which is just an inch taller than the LT1. The LT4 is a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 producing “at least” 625 horsepower and 635 pound-feet of torque. The engine is fitted with an integrated 1.7-liter Eaton supercharger and intercooler with the blower spinning beyond that of the ZR1 of 15,000 with this one going up to 20,000 rpm. It also utilizes shorter rotors to get up to speed more quickly. Some other features include the Active Fuel Management to help keep gas mileage on par as well as with a dry-sump oil system that has a larger capacity than that of the Stingray’s Z51 package.

New for the Z06 this year is the choice of transmissions. A choice between a seven-speed manual or the all-new 8L90 eight-speed automatic transmission. This conventional automatic with a torque converter with four gearsets and five clutches, and it’s lighter than the six-speed in the Stingray within the same space. Chevrolet states that the “wide-open-throttle upshifts executed up to eight-hundredths of a second quicker than the dual-clutch in the Porsche 911.” The ones that still want the “track” feel, the seven-speed manual will be fitted with a new dual-mas flywheel and dual-disc clutch.

Using the aluminum frame from the Corvette Raicing C7.R, the C7 Corvette Z06 will have some differences than the standard C7 Corvette Stingray. Cooling dictates flared fender, larger vents and wider wheels and tires. The tires are actually 1.5-inches wider in the front and 2.0-inches wider in the back than those on the Stingray. The car itself will be 2.2-inches wider in front and 3.15 inches wider in the back. These dimensions actually make the taillights have actually been pushed three inches further apart.

A Z07 package will also be available which will get you Pilot Sport Cup tires for enhanced gripping, Brembo’s carbon ceramic-matrix brake rotors that will help improve braking performance and contribute to greater handling and to reduce weight. This package also adds unique components for true aerodynamic downforce. The Z07 equipped car has already recorded faster track times than even the ZR1.
