 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible

The premiere of the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible at the Los Angeles International Auto Show opens a new chapter in the brand's history, due to its enhanced body structure, that helps prevent cowl or steering wheel shape, and a well-developed top mechanism, thus offering precise quality and a sports coupe-like driving fun. It will be available in similar model configurations as the Camaro coupe with the standard model comprising a V6 direct injection engine, delivering 312 HP and 29 mpg highway,while the SS model will be powered by a 6.2-liter V8 engine which produces 426 HP through increased efficiency. All Camaro models can be equipped with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. A tower-to-tower brace under the hood, a transmission support reinforcement brace, front and rear underbody "V" braces and an underbody tunnel brace represent the four major reinforcements that enhanced toe body structure of the convertible. The suspension received a bolstering structure, thus preserving all the acceleration, road-holding and performance capabilities of the Camaro coupe. A hydrofromed tube in the A-pillars, an inner reinforcement bracket in the windshield header, a reinforced front hinge pillar and reinforcements inside the rockers were designed to improve noise and vibration characteristics. Built in partnership with the same manufacturer as the Corvette convertible top, the power-folding top retracts in about 20 seconds and it also incorporates a glass rear window and rear window defogger.
