Features and Specifications of the New 2016 Chevrolet Camaro, Convertible Variant to be Included in the Lineup, And More

The all new Chevrolet Camaro was revealed around a day after its images leaked online. This impressive vehicle joins the sixth-generation Camaro range and features a soft-top which can be opened and closed at a maximum speed of 30 miles per hour. Meanwhile, General Motors has officially previewed the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro and there is no surprise regarding its look and feel.

At the same time however, GM outlined a variety of structural and design upgrades that should give the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro a big leap forward, in terms of standard driving experience and refinement. Considering the overall look, the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro convertible is essentially quite similar to the coupe below the beltline.

The underlying structure which was specifically developed for the convertible so that it doesn’t quiver and cowl, is also a thing of the past. However, compared to the Camaro Couple, the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible is around 200 pounds lighter since it is built on a much lighter structure.

The Camaro’s kerb-weight has also been reduced by 90kilos in both platforms which makes it lighter compared to the fifth generation’s 1687kg. The new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro rivals the Ford Mustang in both its convertible and coupe forms. Compared to its fifth generation car, the latest Camaro is 20mm narrower, 57mm shorter and 28mm lower.

According to Chevrolet, this superior amount of weight saving was made possible by replacing the instrument panel frame with an aluminum unit while introducing a new five link rear suspension system. Along with that, a MacPhearson suspension setup is featured at the front. Chevy declared that the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro delivers better lap times than the fifth generation track-centric Camaro 1LE Package.

The latest Camaro is a four-seater vehicle but the back seats are really small which is quite common in a car belonging to this category. The top has a feature through which remote opening is possible using a key fob.

If you prefer four-season driving, the complete multi-layer construction, accompanied by thermal and acoustic barriers should prevent the cabin from getting too noisy or drafty. Also, the Camaro is comfortably placed in the realm of driving modes and adjustable instrument clusters.

The newest Camaro’s engine features a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged Petrol unit which is capable of producing 271bhp and 295lb.ft, with maximum torque located between 3000-4500rpm. Using this, the Camaro can be easily propelled to a speed of 60mph in 6 seconds.
