The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray will enter its second model year with some minor changes, according to a leaked order guide.

The guide--via Autoblog--shows that the 2015 Corvette Stingray's biggest mechanical update will be the addition of an eight-speed automatic transmission option, which replaces last year's six-speed automatic. The paddle-shifted transmission was confirmed for non-Z06 2015 Corvettes back in April.

Another significant new option is the ZF1 Appearance Package, which features the body-color spoiler and five-spoke alloy wheels from the Z51 Performance Package without the latter's mechanical upgrades.The previously-revealed Atlantic Design Package and Pacific Design Package will also join the lineup for 2015.

Other new aesthetic options include black and silver valve stems, carbon-fiber badges, and a new Carbon Fiber Ground Effects Package that includes a new front splitter, rocker panels, and a rear spoiler, all made from the lightweight material.

There are also two new exterior colors: Shark Gray Metallic and Daytona Sunrise Orange Metallic. The 2014 model's Cyber Gray Metallic and Lime Rock Green Metallic will not be available on 2015 models. A clear decal kit and rear-fascia protector will help to preserve that new paint.

On the inside, the 2015 Stingray coupe will be available with a suede-quilted headliner, while the convertible will get an optional carbon-fiber tonneau cover. The 2015 Stingray will also be available with GM's OnStar 4G LTE service, which includes a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot. Meanwhile, the new Performance Data Recorder will be bundled with navigation.

Notably absent from this order guide are any details on the 2015 Corvette Z06, which admittedly won't arrive in dealerships until calendar-year 2015.
