question about 14 ZL1

Just curious since my 2012 SS is paid off I was thinking about moving up to a ZL1.

Question is:
Is there a ZL-1 in 2014 or is that the same as the Z/28?
seems to be confusing statements made
Any help would be appreciated.
Also is it worth going up to the ZL-1?

Thanks

This site has plenty of information regarding the 2014 Z/28 and 2014 ZL1. Each car was designed for 2 different types of drivers in mind, by reading you'll find out very quickly which one is geared towards you.

The addition of the recaro seats won't be available until the late model year 2014, FYI.

Yes, 2 different models in 14. ZL1 has all the comfort items and bells and whistles, the Z28 is lighter, has the 427 non SC and things like AC are an option. Like was said above, this site has some threads listing the differences.

Yes. The Z/28, ZL1 and SS models will have Recaros. On the ZL1 and the SS they will be options. On the Z/28 it will be standard.

Fbodfather has already stated that the Recaros will fit the 12/13 ZL1s but he said it would be pricey.

Probably when the 2014s start hitting the showrooms and GM has time to stock up spare parts.

I'm sorry but I think I got it wrong... The first 14's will not have the Recaro seats option? I hope I got it wrong, I really want those seats in my options list, and I don't think I can wait much longer!

Everything I've seen and heard has said the Recaros will be an option on the ZL1 and SS models and will be STANDARD on the Z/28.

This is the first I'm hearing of a possible delay on recaros for the ZL1s. But it makes sense, the bulk of the first orders will be for the Z/28s and the rest will come later. Either way it gives me time to save.

The early production 2014s will not have the Recaros. The late production models will.

Well when available, I'm definitely sticking the Recaros in mine, even if it's a year plus from now

Last ordering guide info I saw did not mention any "late availability" on the Recaros as an option. GM should have more info on these.

Yeah it was in a thread regarding why the Recaro's aren't on the build sheet. I believe BeckyD mentioned the reason being is because they are not available for the early models but will be available in the late production models. Similiar to the mylink with NAV option that wasn't released at the beginning of the 2013 models. The thread is around, I just can't find it. Hope that helps...
