Before the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible’s official debut tomorrow, four official but low-resolution images of the car have leaked online. The pictures were initially published on the Chevrolet website and before they were quickly removed, the Camaro6 forums saved them.
Prior to the publication of these images, it was quite easy to guess how the Camaro Convertible would look and these pictures show just what we were expecting. The front-end of the Camaro Convertible remains identical to the coupe as do the sides. Alongside the inclusion of a thoroughly redesigned decklid, the Chevrolet Camaro Convertible incorporates a folding soft-top ending suggestions that it could have instead been installed with a removable hardtop.
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.
