Chevrolet Teases Upcoming Camaro Convertible: Video
After releasing the redesigned sixth-generation Camaro recently, it will only be a matter of time before Chevrolet starts rolling out all of the various special-edition and performance-tuned variants. That won’t be until after the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible is unveiled. In a quick teaser video, Chevrolet says that the new drop-top will be the “most innovative Camaro Convertible ever,” and it will debut on June 24.
For now, the details are slim, but Chevrolet promises that the new Camaro Convertible will have just a single button to raise and lower the retractable soft top. On the current fifth-gen 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible, there is a latch that first must be disengaged (by pushing a button, pulling down and then rotation the latch) before the top can be lowered electrically using a button located above the rearview mirror. This latch is a severely outdated feature, but it looks like Chevy is ditching this feature for 2016.
Another practical feature that seems to be making its way to the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible is the ability to operate the roof when the vehicle is in motion (at low speeds, of course). Anyone who has ever driven a fifth-gen Camaro knows that to raise or lower the top, the car must be at a complete stop (in either Park or Neutral with the parking brake engaged), which will not only make it more convenient to operate the roof but will also come in handy for drivers who might get caught in an unexpected rain storm.
We’ll find out much more in just a couple days, but until then, check out the video for a sneak peek at the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible.
