2006 Corvette Overview

2006 was a big year for Corvette with the arrival of the C6 Z06 Corvette. The model had a new engine, a LS7 7.0L V-8 that blew the LS2 away. This was the "racecar" that Corvette needed. Along with the Z06, many other features were removed and added. Some of the features they removed include the Millennium Yellow exterior color as well as the Magnetic Red Metallic exterior color. As for interior colors, Steel Gray was no longer an option. Also, Corvette stopped using the 2.73 and 3.15 axle ratio and 4-speed automatic transmissions that they had been using in the past.

With all the removal of colors in 2006, there had to be additions made. The two new exterior colors of the series were Velocity Yellow Tintcoat and Monterey Red Metallic Tintcoat. Corvette also added options for a Titanium Gray interior color and a Storm Gray convertible top. Along with the colors came three-spoke steering wheels and XM Satellite Radio.

One of the more important new features of the 2006 series was the 6-speed paddle shift automatic transmission. This was an option on the coupe and the convertible. Unfortunately, the Z06 came standard with a 6-speed manual transmission with no option of the 6-speed paddle shift. As for engines, the coupe and convertible stuck with the LS2 6.0L V-8 and the Z06 came soaring in LS7 7.0L V-8.
