Presented for the first time to the European public at the 2013 IAA, Camaro has unveiled the facelifted 2014 Camaro Convertible.
Just like the beautiful coupe, the revised 2014 Camaro Convertible can be distinguished by its modified bumpers, a revised grille and the new head- and taillights. The changes made to the exterior design are rather limited, but have a good impact on the retro style of the Camaro – and, according to the engineers, also affect the aerodynamics, providing more efficient cooling and stability at high speeds.
There are also interior revisions, as the model has a new MyLink infotainment system with a seven-inch touchscreen display and Bluetooth/ USB/AUX connectivity.
“Camaro has always been associated with iconic design, high performance and driving fun, and we are particularly proud of the new coupe and convertible models,” said Dr. Thomas Sedran, President and Managing Director, Chevrolet Europe. “They incorporate new high-tech features that add extra convenience and give customers even more value for their money,” Sedran added.
For Europe, power is supplied by the unchanged 6.2L V8 engine, which is mated to a six-speed manual or an automatic transmission. The automatic transmission model includes active fuel management and cam phasing (VVT). The manual transmission version churns out 432 hp (318 kW) at 5,900 rpm and delivers a torque of 569 Nm at 4,600 rpm. Zero to 100 km/h acceleration is 5.2 seconds for the manual coupe and 5.4 seconds for the manual convertible.
