Is there anything that’s more American then pony cars? First car in this authenticaly American class of cars was made by Ford, it was Ford Mustang. Soon GM made their own pony car, Chevrolet Camaro. First Chevrolet Camaro was launched in 1966 model year. It shared its platform and some parts with Pontiac Firebird. Chevrolet Camaro was made to compete with Ford Mustang and since then these two models are leading the way of American muscle car market. On 2006 Camaro production was discontinued, but only 3 years later, the production continued with its 5th generation 2009 model.
New generation model received completely new design and it is made in Canada in Oshawa, Ontario GM facility. If you want to amaze your friends especially female friends we advise you to choose the convertible version since nothing gives such pleasure as driving down the dessert road or the ocean’s coast in a convertible muscle car.
2014 Chevy Camaro review
2014 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible has updated exterior for the 2014 model year. It now has wider lower mouth, compressed upper grille which gives it much more aerodynamic look, new spoilers and exhaust tips which roar even when the key is not in the ignition. It also has a redesigned headlights. All that together with good old Chevrolet Camaro sleek lines, bulging hood and swollen wheel arches makes it one of the prettiest pony cars out there.
Chevrolet Camaro Convertible interior is very modern and stylish. It looks like retro touch of the earlier Camaro models almost disappeared and now everything is focused on comfort and style. Although there is maybe a little too much hard plastic, but at least it looks good. New Camaro interior doesn’t lack in hi tech features as well, wide touch screen displays with clean layout and number of connectivity options speak for itself. New Camaro only lacks in trunk space which is probably its only interior flaw.
Engine options depend on the trim you choose. With LT and LS Camaro Convertible you get 3.6-liter V6. This beast produces 323 horsepowers and 187 pound feet of torque. It comes with manual transmission and to be honest fuel efficiency is not as bad as we expected. It goes from 17 mpg in the city conditions to 23 on the highway (20 mpg combined), by EPA estimate. SS trim of Chevrolet Camaro Convertible comes with 6.2-liter V8. There is also ZL1 and ZL/28 with stronger engines. ZL1 goes from 0 to 60 mph in only 4,4 seconds and has much better fuel economy with 16 mpg in combined city and highway conditions.
