<hgroup>2014 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible

As sure as the sun will rise tomorrow, the refreshed Camaro yields a topless variant.

When Chevrolet debuted the refreshed-for-2014 Camaro coupe at the New York auto show earlier this year, the updated convertible version was nowhere to be found. Chevy, of course, was just waiting to reveal that model at a different auto show. Interestingly, that venue is the 2013 Frankfurt show, a move that has to do with the timing of the car’s launch both in Europe and here in the States—not to mention being just about the last opportunity for the car to get some press before the new Mustang breaks cover.
The 2014 Camaro convertible wears the same updated sheetmetal as the latest coupe, with squintier headlights and a slimmer grille and taillights. As on the coupe, the styling tweaks help reduce some of the Camaro’s visual chunkiness. The droptop’s three trim levels—LT, SS, and ZL1—carry over, and the spec sheet mirrors the coupe’s, with a standard 323-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 and choice of six-speed manual or automatic transmissions. Buyers can step up to a 426-hp—400 horsepower when shifting duties are handled by the automatic transmission—6.2-liter V-8 in the SS model, or to a 580-hp, supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 in the burly ZL1. (The ZL1 does not get the same front fascia as the rest of the 2014 Camaro lineup due to the high level of effort required to adapt it for the car’s aerodynamic and cooling needs.)

</td></tr></tbody></table>Besides inheriting the coupe’s cosmetic upgrades, the convertible only gets one of that model’s two new optional extras: a color head-up display and Recaro sport seats. Unfortunately, the Recaro sport seats—which are optional on SS coupes—didn’t make the convertible’s options sheet, likely because the seatbelts in the topless Camaro are seat-mounted. A new seven-inch MyLink touch-screen infotainment system is now available, and a backup camera mercifully remains standard. The SS coupe’s available high-performance 1LE package is still unavailable on the convertible, and we’ve been told not to hold our breath for a roofless Z/28.
The 2014 Chevrolet Camaro convertible is headed for dealerships as you read this, and pricing edges upward slightly relative to the 2013 model. A base 1LT increases by $390 to $31,950, the $39,950 SS starts $365 higher than last year, and the ZL1’s price swells by a modest $705 to $62,450. View Photo Gallery
