Previously a base engine, the V-6 will be promoted as a mid-range offering in the upcoming convertible. Although it displaces the same 3.6 liters as its predecessor, the V-6 is actually new, having also received cylinder deactivation technology on top of many upgraded internals. Output now sits at 335 horsepower and 284 pound-feet, up 12 horses and six pound-feet over the previous model. These figures make it the most powerful naturally aspirated V-6 in this segment, putting it above the Mustang by a whopping 35 horsepower. It should make the Camaro faster too, at around 5.7 seconds from 0 to 60 mph.
In the transmission department, the coupe’s six-speed manual and eight-speed automatic will find their way into the convertible model as well.
There’s reason to believe the ZL1, not yet confirmed, but definitely in the pipeline, will continue as a convertible too. Moreover, with Chevy having already released the first-ever drop-top version of the Corvette Z06, there’s a possibility the track-prepped Z/28 will come with a soft-top as well.
The electro-hydraulic power roof system is also new, featuring a multilayer construction for a more comfortable and quiet driving experience.
Like the coupe, the convertible benefits from a stiffer, lighter structure that helps reduce weight by around 200 pounds compared to the model it replaces. As a result, Chevy claims the drop-top maintains the coupe’s performance-oriented chassis tuning and nimble ride.
Based on GM’s preliminary photos, the Camaro Convertible is one sexy summer ride. And I must confess that although I generally prefer coupes to drop-tops, the sixth-gen Camaro might just be the first pony I’d rather have with a canvas top.
