2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Priced at $78,995

Elizabeth City NC – The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 – the most powerful and technologically advanced model in the iconic car’s 62-year history – will be offered at Performance Chevrolet at a suggested retail price of $78,995 while the convertible model will start at $83,995.
“The 2015 Corvette Z06’s performance and technical capabilities place it in the elite fraternity of supercars,” said Harlan Charles, Corvette product and marketing manager. “Very few cars in the world deliver 650 horsepower, true aerodynamic downforce, carbon fiber and performance technologies such as Magnetic Ride Control, Performance Traction Management and an electronic limited slip differential – and none gives the driver a transmission choice or the choice of a coupe with a removable roof panel or a full-power-top convertible.”
Leveraging learnings from the Corvette Racing program, the $2,995 Carbon Fiber Ground Effects package enables the Corvette Z06 to produce true aerodynamic downforce for increased stability at high speeds. The package adds a functional carbon fiber front splitter, carbon fiber rocker panels and a larger rear spoiler.
For the ultimate performance, the Z07 Performance Package is available for $7,995, adding Brembo carbon ceramic-matrix brake rotors that improve braking performance and contribute to better handling through reduced unsprung weight. The Z07 package adds adjustable front and rear aerodynamic components to the Carbon Fiber Ground Effects package for unprecedented aerodynamic downforce and Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup tires for enhanced grip.
“The Z07 performance package enhances overall performance to make the Corvette Z06 one of the most track-capable cars you can buy off the dealership floor and still drive it to work every day,” said Charles.
Z06 models are offered in 1LZ, 2LZ and 3LZ trims. A range of available features enables customers to tailor the look and feel of their Z06, including:
  • Premium Package with leather-wrapped interior
  • Aero-enhancing carbon fiber ground effects package
  • Performance Data Recorder and navigation
  • Competition sport seats offered in leather or sueded microfiber
  • Carbon fiber interior trim and carbon fiber convertible tonneau cover inserts
  • Visible carbon fiber roof panel (Coupe)
  • Tintcoat exterior colors, several available wheel finishes and several available brake caliper colors.
“The Z06 is a world-class supercar taking power and performance to new levels,” says Chris Perry of Perry Auto Group. “With 650 horsepower on tap, the Z06 promises to deliver the sort of performance few cars – including some rather exotic competitors – can match.”
Most powerful, technologically advanced Corvette ever
The Z06 rejoins the Corvette lineup for 2015 with a stronger aluminum frame than previous models, an aero package designed to produce performance-enhancing downforce and an all-new, supercharged 6.2L V-8 engine rated at an SAE-certified at 650 horsepower (485 kW) and 650 lb-ft of torque (881 Nm). That makes it the most powerful production car ever from General Motors and one of the most powerful production cars available in the United States.
To balance performance and efficiency, the LT4 leverages the same trio of advanced technologies introduced on the Corvette Stingray – direct injection, Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation) and continuously variable valve timing – and leverages them with a new, more efficient supercharger. Combined with the fuel-efficient multi-speed transmissions, aerodynamic design and lightweight construction, they help make the new Z06 surprisingly efficient.
The Corvette Z06 also leverages other technologies introduced on the Corvette Stingray, including the strategic use of lightweight materials and advanced driver technologies, with calibrations tailored for its capabilities. The aluminum frame structure, for example, is 20 percent stiffer than the previous, fixed-roof Z06.
Additional technologies support the car’s tremendous performance capabilities and enhance the driving experience, including:
  • Third-generation Magnetic Selective Ride Control dampers are standard and can be adjusted for touring comfort or maximum track performance via the standard Driver Mode Selector
  • Performance Traction Management is available in the Track mode of the Drive Mode Selector and offers five settings of torque reduction and brake intervention for track driving
  • Launch control is available in Track mode for manual and automatic transmissions, providing maximum off-the-line acceleration
An electronic limited-slip differential, also standard equipment on Z06, adjusts the rate at which the limited slip engages, to balance between steering response and stability in different driving conditions with more aggressive performance in Sport and Track modes.
The Z06 offers three increasing levels of aerodynamic downforce:
  • The standard Z06 features a front splitter, spats around the front wheel openings, a unique carbon-fiber hood with a larger vent, and an aggressive rear spoiler.
  • The available carbon-fiber aero package – in either carbon flash paint or a visible carbon-fiber finish – adds a carbon-fiber front splitter with aviation-style winglets, carbon fiber rocker panels, and a larger rear spoiler with a fixed wickerbill, which combine to create true aerodynamic downforce
  • The available Z07 package adds larger winglets to the front splitter, along with an adjustable, see-through center section on the rear spoiler for track use. With this package, the Corvette Z06 delivers the most aerodynamic downforce of any production car GM has tested.
Drivers can monitor the Z06’s performance without taking their eyes off the road via a standard color head-up display that, among the range of performance readouts, displays a g-meter in Track mode.
The Z06 also offers the award-winning, industry-first Performance Data Recorder – or PDR – which enables users to record high-definition video, with telemetry overlays, of their driving experiences on and off the track. The racing-derived system is included with the available navigation system.

2015 Chrysler 200 Earns Top Safety Rating From IIHS

2015 Chrysler 200 Earns Top Safety Rating From IIHS

Elizabeth City, NC - Chrysler is making great strides in styling, image and features and that is why the 2015 Chrysler 200 earns top safety rating from IIHS and with crash-test results now released from one of the major U.S. agencies, it's becoming clear that safety is much-improved.

The tough Insurance Institute for Highway Safety crash test was no match for the 2015 Chysler 200 as it aced the overlap frontal crash test and it earned a top 'good' score in the other four categories of testing, representing moderate overlap frontal, side impact, seat (rear impact), and roof strength areas. With an available Full-speed Forward Collision Plus system, offered with the Safety Tech Package, the IIHS gives the Chrysler 200 its Top Safety Pick+ award.

The 2015 Chrysler 200, which is built on a different platform than the previous model, hasn't yet been tested by the federal government, as part of New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) testing, but we're expecting that to be improved.

To check out all that the Chrysler brand has to offer, come see us at our Columbia Area Chrysler Dealer or our Hertford Area Chrysler Dealer. Perry Auto Group has two dealership locations at 1005 W. Ehringhaus St, Elizabeth City, NC, 27909 or 1001 Halstead Blvd Elizabeth City, NC 27909.

2015 Chevrolet Colorado Starts at $20,995

 
Elizabeth City, NC – The 2015 Chevrolet Colorado will provide Elizabeth City-area drivers with accessible capability when it goes on sale at Performance Chevrolet later this fall. Chevrolet announced today that the 2015 Colorado will be priced from $20,995, including $895 in dealer freight charges.
“The Colorado excels at packaging great strength and capability into a nimble footprint,” says Trey Colbert of Performance Chevrolet. “But it also offers consumers an incredibly approachable and affordable price tag.”
Standard features on the 2015 Colorado extended-cab pickup include a 200-horsepower, 2.5L four-cylinder with direct fuel injection and continuously variable valve timing for strong midrange torque; a 6-speed manual transmission; power windows with express up for the driver; a rear-vision camera with dynamic guide lines; and a locking tailgate.
Available options for the 2015 Colorado will include a 305-horsepower, 3.6L V-6 with direct fuel injection and variable valve timing; a 6-speed automatic transmission; OnStar with 4G LTE connectivity and a built-in WiFi hotspot, Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning; and the GearOn accessory system, a comprehensive solution for organizing and carrying cargo.
Other Colorado models will also offer great value. For example, the 2015 Colorado LT crew cab with 2WD and the 5-foot box has a starting price of $27,985, including dealer freight. The 2015 Colorado Z71 crew cab 4x4 with a 5-foot box starts at $34,990.
Colorado customers can order either an extended cab or crew cab configuration. Crew-cab Colorado models will offer a choice of 5- or 6-foot boxes; extended-cab models use the 6-foot box. In any configuration, the 2015 Colorado is an easy fit in many parking spots and garages. The short-bed crew cab model is 212.7 inches long, over a foot shorter than a comparable Silverado 1500. Its overall width of 74.3 inches is five inches narrower than Silverado, providing easier maneuverability around town.
The 2015 Colorado will arrive at Performance Chevrolet in the fall of 2014. Detailed pricing and fuel economy estimates will be available closer to launch.
You will be able to enjoy all the features that the all new Chevy Colorado has to offer when it goes on sale in the fall of 2014.
