The latest version of the Chevy Corvette hit the market as a 2014 model year vehicle, and the 2015 is already getting some upgrades.

Mechanical changes are limited to a new eight-speed automatic transmission that was announced back in April, but now we know that the transmission will be paired with a 2.41 limited-slip differential.

The biggest styling change is the addition of the new ZF1 appearance package which tacks on the body-color spoiler and five-spoke silver alloys found on the Z51 package, without bringing along the performance-enhancing goodies. Other new options include black or silver valve stems, carbon-fiber badges and a carbon fiber ground effects package that adds a front splitter, rocker panels and rear spoiler made from the lightweight material.

Color choices are also revised for 2015, with both Shark Gray Metallic and Daytona Sunrise Orange Metallic being added to the options list, while Lime Rock Green Metallic and Cyber Gray Metallic have been dumped.

On the interior, a new suede-quilted headliner is available for the coupe, while the convertible can now be had with a carbon-fiber tonneau cover. For technology, the 2015 Corvette can be had with in-car WiFi along with the performance data recorder, but only if you equip navigation.

Photos of the 2015 car have yet to be released.
