The second body style of the new Camaro generation, the convertible, has been officially unveiled by the North American based automaker.
The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible has put a stop to all rumors and renderings as the car manufacturer has officially pulled the wraps off its body. The model in question has a design identical to its solid roof brother, just like it was expected, but it has received the electro-hydraulic power roof, with the multi-layer construction. This has acoustic and thermal barriers and when it is on, Chevy says that the car looks just like the coupe.
Speaking of its roof, you should know that this can be operated using the key fob, when stationary, and it can also be opened and closed at speeds up to 30 mph (48 km/h). The new Camaro Convertible is getting a stiffer and lighter structure and this is translated into a total weight loss of 200 lbs compared to its predecessor. As far as the engine lineup goes, the model is adopting the same units as the coupe. This basically means that the 275 HP (205 kW) & 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque 2.0l four-cylinder will be added, along with the larger 335 HP (250 kW) & 385 Nm (284 lb-ft) of torque 3.6 liter V6. There will also be a range-topping version of the model, the SS, which will be making use of the 6.2l V8, producing 455 HP (339 kW) & 617 Nm (455 lb-ft). No pricing details have been disclosed so far.
