Floor Liners

Floor MatsAll-weather floor liners are the perfect gift for Midwest drivers. These removable liners keep the salt and snow off a vehicle’s carpeting and make clean-up a breeze!

Floor liners offer coverage around interior trim, driver pedals, seat tracks, and door sills — much more than a typical fabric floor mat.

2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Makes Its Global Debut in Dubai

The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 made its global debut Sunday at the Dubai Motor Show!

This supercar has the highest power, greatest track performance, and most advanced technology in the Corvette’s production history.

ZR1 2“I’ve never driven a Corvette like this before, and nobody else has either, because there has never been one like this before,” said Mark Reuss, executive vice president of Global Product Development, Purchasing, and Supply Chain, in a press release. “Its unprecedented performance puts all other global supercars on notice that the ZR1 is back.”

Under the hood, the ZR1 has an LT5 6.2L V8 engine. It delivers 755 horsepower and 715 lb.-ft. of torque, with over 600 lb.-ft. of torque available from 2200 rpm to redline. The top speed of the ZR1 is over 210 mph!

Seven-speed manual and eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmissions are availableZR1 3 with the LT5. It is the first time an automatic transmission has been offered in a ZR1.

The vehicle’s all-new front fascia is designed to channel air for propulsion-system and drivetrain cooling, with four new radiators bringing the heat-exchanger total to 13. A carbon-fiber “halo” hood is open in the middle to clear the LT5 engine’s supercharger/intercooler assembly.

“As the highest-performing Corvette ever, the ZR1’s design supports its capability in every way,” said Kirk Bennion, Exterior Design manager, in a press release. “The new wings, for example, help generate more downforce without adding drag, enhancing road holding and top speed.”

ZR1 FrontThe ZR1 offers two aero packages:

  • A standard rear Low Wing, which delivers the highest top speed and helps generate up to 70 percent more downforce than the Z06’s base aero package
  • Two-way adjustable High Wing that offers maximum downforce on the track for the quickest lap times.  The adjustable High Wing is part of the new ZTK Performance Package, which also includes a front splitter with carbon-fiber end caps, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 summer-only tires, and specific chassis and Magnetic Ride Control tuning for greater cornering grip.

The new ZR1 also is available with a Sebring Orange Design Package. Along with the Sebring Orange Tintcoat exterior color, the package also includes orange brake calipers, orange rocker and splitter accent stripes, orange seat belts, orange interior stitching, and unique, bronze aluminum interior trim.

The 2019 Corvette ZR1 will be available next spring.
