Overview Information

Through five generations, the Chevrolet Camaro has been General Motor's answer to the successful Ford Mustang. In 2003, Chevrolet dropped the Camaro due to sagging sales, but six years later, the Camaro returned as an answer to strong sales from the Mustang. In 2011, the Camaro added a convertible model. The Camaro convertible is a four-passenger soft-top convertible that can retract in about 20 seconds. Convertible models are offered in LT and SS trim levels. The base LT model equips a 304-bhp, 3.6L V6 engine, but it is the 6.2L V8-powered SS that will have people reliving the muscle car era. With prices ranging from the high twenties, the Camaro convertible offers outstanding performance value.

What Changed:

The Camaro adds a four-passenger convertible to the lineup. The convertible top is a power operated fabric top that retracts in about 20 seconds. Powertrain choices for the convertible mirror those of the coupe: a 3.6l V6 in LT models and a 6.2l V8 in SS models. Both offer a choice of a six-speed manual or automatic transmission.
