While other muscle cars have tried and failed with convertibles the Camaro gets it right. General Motors engineers worked tirelessly to ensure the fifth generation Camaro would function well as a coupe or a convertible. Their efforts have resulted in one of the most stable convertible platforms available.
With iconic Camaro styling the convertible is almost a mirror of the coupe. Designers worked diligently to ensure the convertible matched the coupe’s presence. This resulted in the same body from the windows down with a sleek convertible top to match the roof line on the coupe.
Make no mistake-this car was meant to be driven with the top down.
Chevrolet engineered the convertible for precise ride dynamics. In addition to the Camaro's stronger chassis the convertible has additional bracing for a more rigid feel. An aluminum strut tower brace, transmission support reinforcement brace, underbody tunnel brace and front and rear underbody V braces make up the added support. The extra support reduces torsional flex giving the Camaro Convertible the same stiffness as BMW 3 series convertible.
This is why Chevrolet refers to the Camaro Convertible as the “ultimate open-air driving experience”.
