2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Eight-Speed Automatic Review



Quote:
The Vette Gains Gears, Speed and Efficiency
by Mike Schlee

A favorite of the vehicles I drove last year, the Chevy Corvette Stingray is easily one of the best performance bargains on the market. And Iím not alone in thinking so.

Even after winning the 2014 North American Car of the Year, the folks at Chevrolet werenít about to pat themselves on the back and spend a few years resting on their laurels. No, for 2015, significant improvements are being made to the Stingray in only its second year on the market. New are enhancements to the rev matching precision of the seven-speed manual transmission, the addition of an optional performance data recorder and an all-new eight-speed automatic.

Dubbed the Hydra-Matic 8L90, the eight-speed is an in-house GM design that replaces the old six-speed in the Stingray and will even find its way into the upcoming Corvette Z06, which means the 8L90 needs to be able to handle upwards of 650 lb-ft of torque. More than that, the new eight-speed also needs to be flexible enough for use in pick-up trucks and SUVs as well as sports cars and must be able to fit into the same physical space as the old six-gear transmission.
