New Chevy Corvette Z06 — Coolest Performance Features

2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 | Garland, TX

The long-awaited moment has arrived at last. The mid-engine Corvette Z06 has finally been revealed and we can’t wait to share with you some of its best qualities. These are the Chevy Corvette Z06 performance features we’re most excited about.

Unique front and rear fascia

It’s the first time the Corvette Z06 has a different front and rear end compared to the Stingray. Designed to optimize the car’s higher cooling needs, it also means that Z06 owners will stand out from other ‘Vette drivers.

Carbon fiber wheels

The more carbon fiber, the better. These 20- or 21-inch wheels help save 41 pounds in unsprung mass (mass not held by the suspension). Expect the Z06 to deliver some truly impressive performance gains in part thanks to these ultra-lightweight wheels.

All-new engine

A new naturally-aspirated V8 engine revs up to an 8,600-rpm redline and features facing-style dry-sump oiling. It’s a version of the same engine that has powered the GT3-spec Corvette endurance racing car since 2019. In other words, its performance and durability are assured.

Z07 performance package

Chevrolet says this new package helps the Corvette generate 734 pounds of downforce at 186 mph, more than any Corvette in the past. There’s a lot more to the package, and to the Z06 in general, so make sure to call us at Jupiter Chevrolet in Garland, Texas, for all the details!

Top Fluids to Monitor for Optimal Car Performance

Oil Change | Garland, TX

Every vehicle needs regular maintenance — and keeping your car’s fluids topped off is an essential part of car care. Here’s a look at a few of the car fluids you should monitor to ensure proper vehicle performance.

Coolant

Also called antifreeze, coolant is a fluid that regulates your vehicle’s temperature. To check its levels, wait until your car is completely cooled off, then pop the radiator cap. If the coolant isn’t up to the line, top it off. Check coolant at least every six months, or more frequently in high temperatures.

Transmission fluid

Low transmission fluid may be the cause of rough shifting. Check it monthly to ensure that it’s still bright red and sufficiently full. As for how often you should replace it, consult your owner’s manual — it varies greatly between transmission types.

Oil

Oil should be checked monthly. Check to make sure it isn’t gritty or dark, and that your vehicle has enough oil to lubricate its engine. It should typically be changed every 3,000-5,000 miles, depending on your owner’s manual recommendations.

Brake fluid

Brake fluid keeps your car’s brakes responsive and working properly. If you notice a braking issue, check the fluid levels by peeking into the reservoir, located on the driver’s side. Brake fluid should be checked at every oil change, and changed every two years or sooner, if it looks dark.

Power steering fluid

If you hear cracking, popping, or other odd noises when you steer, check to see if the power steering fluid is low. It’s a good idea to check this fluid monthly, and replace it every 50,000 miles.

In order to keep your vehicle healthy, it’s a good idea to have its fluids flushed and changed regularly. Consult your vehicle owner’s manual for more details, and bring your car to the Jupiter Chevrolet service center in Garland, Texas for expert care.
