GM has officially unveiled the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible, and besides its incredible good looks and spacious leg room, the new drop-top offers unprecedented functionality. Move over Ford Mustang, there’s a new convertible in town.
The 2016 Camaro Convertible features a fully automatic top, meaning that not a single latch or lever needs to be manually operated for the top to be lowered. This allows for owners to open and close the convertible top outside the car using the key fob , or inside the car while on the go. In fact, the top can be lowered and raised at a whopping 30 mph – that’s faster than most competitors. Additionally, the Camaro Convertible features a rigid, body-color cover that automatically covers up the folded top when lowered.
For reference, the Ford Mustang convertible requires a person to twist a handle inside the cabin in order to lower the top, which can only be lowered and raised at a measly 3 mph. Also of note, the Mustang’s top does not fully fold into the rear, leaving the front of the roof exposed when lowered. Enough about the other guy, though.
The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro has been reengineered, shedding 200 pounds both in the coupe and ragtop convertible, and is available with six powerful powertrain options.
“The 2016 Camaro coupe will set the benchmark for the segment in terms of technology, performance, and design,” said Todd Christensen, Camaro marketing manager in a statement. “Adding the most sophisticated top in the segment brings another level of refinement.”
Look for the 2016 Chevy Camaro to be available at Dahl Chevrolet Buick GMC early next year. What model are you looking forward to most in 2016?
