The drop top Camaro has never looked sleeker.
True to its word, Chevy has popped the top off the all-new sixth-gen Camaro and as you can see the new Convertible sports a conventional folding soft-top. But unlike other drop tops in this segment, the Camaro Convertible boasts a fully-automated roof – including the latches that lock and release it – and can be activated at speeds of up to 30 mph. It can also be controlled via a button on the key fob for when drivers are away from the car.
The modern soft top also features multilayer constriction with thermal and acoustic barriers to ensure a comfortable, quiet ride. When up, the roof maintains the stylish silhouette of the coupe, and when down, a hard tonneau cover automatically deploys to cover it for a sleek finish. Engines on offer include a 275-hp 2.0-liter turbo-four, a 335-hp 3.6-liter V6 and the range-topping 6.2-liter V8 borrowed from the Stingray rated at 455 hp in the SS variant. The interior maintains rear seats, although don’t expect much in the way of leg room, and the driver-focused cabin comes with a configurable instrument cluster and cutting-edge control technologies including a new Driver Mode Selector.
From the beginning, the Camaro's architecture was developed to incorporate a convertible with uncompromised driving dynamics," said Camaro chief engineer Al Oppenheiser. "Customers will appreciate what they don't feel: quivers, cowl shake or an under-damped chassis typically found in a four-seat convertible." The Camaro Convertible will arrive in showrooms early 2016, following the coupe that will land this fall.
