The top features multilayer construction and includes acoustic and thermal barriers for a comfortable and quiet ride. The top also folds down completely beneath the belt line. The hard tonneau cover automatically covers the top giving the convertible a clean, finished look.
“The 2016 Camaro coupe will set the benchmark for the segment in terms of technology, performance and design,” said Todd Christensen, Camaro marketing manager. “Adding the most sophisticated top in the segment brings another level of refinement – and driving enjoyment – to the Camaro convertible.”
According to Al Oppenheiser, Camaro chief engineer, drivers will appreciate the lack of quivers, cowl shake, or an under-damped chassis commonly found in a four-seat convertible. He also states the new Camaro’s architecture was developed to incorporate a convertible with uncompromising driving dynamics.
“With many convertibles, you have to affix a tonneau cover manually – if it’s done at all,” said Tom Peters, design director. “The Camaro convertible’s automatically deploying hard tonneau not only makes it easier to enjoy convertible driving when the inspiration hits, it ensures the car always looks its best.”
Look for the sixth generation Camaro convertible to arrive at dealers in early 2016.
