2016 Chevy Camaro convertible revealed, comes with hard tonneau cover that deploys over the folded roof

Chevrolet introduced the new redesigned 2016 Camaro a few weeks back in Detroit and the automaker has now finally pulled the cover off its highly anticipated convertible version. The sixth-generation 2016 Camaro Convertible features a soft top that can be operated at speeds up to 30 miles per hour and a hard tonneau that deploys when the roof is stowed. The roof can also be operated remotely using the wireless key fob. Like the coupe, the convertible benefits from a stiffer, lighter structure that helps reduce its weight by at least 200 pounds compared to the model it replaces.

“The 2016 Camaro coupe will set the benchmark for the segment in terms of technology, performance and design,” said Todd Christensen, Camaro marketing manager. Like the hardtop version, the convertible will make use of the same powertrain lineup, with a turbocharged four-cylinder, a 3.6-liter V6, and a 6.2-liter V8 with six-speed manuals or eight-speed automatic transmissions spanning the lineup. There is no word on the pricing as of yet.
