According to the vice president of the Engineering department of General Motors, Steve Kiefer, the LT4 has exceeded previously set standards with regards to torque and power. The engine featured in the car is superb, and has put the Corvette Z06 in competition with some of the most powerful cars in the country. As for performance, you can easily drive it through tow without any issues.
The Chief President of Small Block engines claimed that torque is what makes an engine pull a car. LT4 has this in abundance, which allows the Corvette Z06 to achieve acceleration quickly.
The LT4 engine of the 2015 Corvette is similar to the engines used in the previous models in terms of technologies. However, there are slight differences which translate into a performance beyond excellence.
The new engine has a similar to the LT1 engine, featured in Corvette Stingray, but some unique features have been incorporated so that the engine delivers a higher output and increased cylinder pressures.
The LT4 engine has a Rotocast A356T6 aluminum head for the cylinder, which is stronger than traditional heads. It also deals with heat in a better manner. The intake valves are made from lightweight titanium whereas the pistons are of forged aluminum. This maintains structural strength even when cylindrical pressures are high. The compressions ratio of 10:0.1 boosts performance and efficiency.
It will be in the fourth quarter of this year that the Corvette Z06 2015 is available at Courtesy Cherolet. Test drive the car, and you will be impressed by it so much that you will instantly want it for yourself.
