A teaser video of the upcoming 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible has just been released before the car debut’s on Wednesday. Set to debut just six weeks after the hardtop, the new Camaro Convertible will aim to rival the latest Ford Mustang Convertible.
The video’s description says “Objects in motion should stay in motion, especially when dropping the top. There’s only one button between you and the sky. The most innovative Camaro Convertible ever will soon reveal all its secrets. Stay tuned. It all goes down 6/24/15.”
It remains to be seen if the new Chevrolet Camaro Convertible will feature a traditional fabric folding roof or a retractable hardtop. However, it seems most likely that a soft top will be featured.
Engines for the coupe include a new 2.0 litre turbocharged unit producing at 275 hp and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm). The new engine delivers more than 30 mpg on the highway (GM-estimated), and 0-60 mph acceleration under 6 seconds. Chevrolet also offer a new 3.6 litre V6 with 335 hp and 284 lb-ft of torque (385 Nm) – the highest specific output of any naturally aspirated V6 in the segment. The range topping Camaro SS gets a new 6.2 litre LT1 direct-injected Small Block V8 rated at 455 hp and 455 lb-ft of torque (617 Nm).
The suspension setup includes Magnetic Ride Control with active suspension. An all-new Drive Mode Selector tailors up to eight vehicle attributes for four modes: Snow/Ice, Tour, Sport and – exclusively for SS models – Track settings.
All of these engines and systems are expected in the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible.
