    Whoops! 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible Makes A Early Debut

      The 6th-Generation Camaro Convertible Makes A Surprise Entrance

    Chevrolet has an interesting week. Tomorrow, the automaker will be revealing the next-generation Cruze. Then a day after, the 6th generation Camaro Convertible will be shown for the first time.

     

    Unfortunately for Chevrolet, someone posted the images of the new Camaro Convertible on Chevy's site. The company has pulled them down, but the folks at Camaro6.com got the images. Not surprisingly, the convertible looks much the same as the coupe.

     

    We'll have more details on the drop-top Camaro later this week.

    Likely before the Cascada, put it that way. Is that thing still a go?

     

    Yes. The media drives are late summer / early fall.  More than likely, William or I will get to test one out to give you our opinion.

     Because the best time for convertibles is when the sun is hottest or winter is approaching???  :banghead:

     

    I love GM but sometimes they really do drag $h! out to times that are simply insane.

     

    In fact.. I still remain confused as to how and why a Camaro.. which isn't even out yet is on the same platform as an ATS that has been on the market since 2013.. is getting a convertible and the Caddy isn't

    It has more to do with when the car goes on sale.  Early to Mid-September is perfect convertible weather in my view.

    I understand this to a degree, but for me.. top comes off in April.. My larger point remains that the ATS .. and CTS should have convertibles along with coupes (CTS) now.

    If it's a case of limited dollars for new product launches then I'd say go with your hot hand. The Camaro droptop is a surefire seller, and likely in large quantities. As much as I'd like to see an ATS droptop, I'll grit my teeth and say that GM made the right call here.

    I'm not normally a fan of convertables, but there's just something about this that I like. It's like it's convertable guise suites it really well.

     

    Very nice looking car.

    It's just a test drive.  We don't get to keep it for months and months

     

    Although, It would be cool to do a long-term test.

     

     

    You live in Michigan. You'd get to put the top down for about 15 minutes sometime in mid-August.  :sneeze:

    I read during the unveiling of the ATS Coupe that one of the major benefits of the less dramatic design was that it can pull double duty for a convertible. It was shelved during tight financial times, but I have a feeling we'll see an ATS vert with the Camaro's hardware.

    GM no longer has "limited dollars." The investment in a chopping of an existing top would be minimal.. and the premium they could charge on a Cadillac, even if they made it exclusive to a "Special Edition" VSport ATS with 75 less Ponies

    There's always a budget, meng. As much as Barra and Reuss would like to play with Mad Money they can't slip back into old habits. If it's any comfort I used the same argument on the ATS droptop you used on my dreamed-for Cruze (and Sonic, indirectly) SS a year or so ago :(

    • in two days, THREE year VANIVERSARY! New cars, buy or lease, are pretty unobtainable nowadays.  Sales wanted me to reup the lease for 300 more bucks /mo.  MSRP's through the roof, for the same thing. And weirdly, there is not much for color availability for a replacement, in other than black and white these days.  No can do.  Took advantage of the really cheap buyout price and now are owners. Sitting about 29,000 miles.  Using as a daily driver 2 days a week now, and the Regal 3 days a week. Still enjoying this ride and its been knock on wood, no issues. Last fall I bought OEM wheels for cheap for winter rubber... but never did get the tires this year as winter has been so mild and without snow.  But next winter I'll be able to get some X-Ice or Blizzaks. Love the comfortable seats.  And the higher ride height is a nice welcome contrast vs the Regal.  The Harmon Kardon sound is really good.  Far better than the junk Bose (redundant term, I know) in the Regal. Pacifica sales were really good last year, and this vehicle will remain in the Chrysler lineup for the foreseeable future.  In fact, there is a major refresh now coming out in 2025 or 2026.  I can't wait to see what it may be.  Some rumor renderings look good, some others don't.   Part of the reason for the buyout was GM hasn't gotten their new Acadia and Traverse out yet.  Painfully slow getting them to market!  And the Enclave too!  3 times now and technically this is the 4th time we could have looked to get into the GM three row products.  The Pacific is just easy to drive and own.  Rides great, quiet.  May look to replace the TourX one of these days when GM finally gets those new 3 rows to the market. Our last three vacations, we've rented Pacificas also.  The front drivers pull amazing highway mpg when your doing interstate driving. Have still had interest in the plug in version.....I think they still have teething issues with them, but also..they are heavy due to the battery and you lose stow n Go as well as all wheel drive.  I was interested in test driving a Sienna hybrid, but you can never find one on a lot.  Plus, the Sienna interior is ghastly.  
    • Recent oil change again. Sitting at about 43,000 miles now. The dealership has a great car wash!  
    • Interesting another one bites the dust.
