The 2011 Chevrolet Camaro convertible leaves you saying one word: whoa. The muscle car has finally arrived forever changed, and for the better. The Camaro convertible is a sign that American muscle is back with a vengeance. The Camaro convertible is one of the most fun cars I have had the opportunity of sitting behind the wheel of, and it is quite the attention grabber.

The revamped car encompasses everything a muscle car has to offer as well the sleek look of a convertible. This Camaro roars like none other and can overpower anything.

Chevrolet looked to pick up where Ford and Chrysler left off with the modified Mustang series and Dodge’s launch of the Charger and Challenger. With the success of the newly revamped muscle cars, GM, the godfather of muscle decided to shock the car world with the revamping the Camaro in 2009. With its debut in the Transformers movie, everyone wanted the Camaro and thought that the muscle car could not get any cooler. Then Chevrolet decided to remove the top and make the Camaro a convertible.

I can honestly say I have never been stopped so many times in the streets and asked questions.

Exterior: The convertible commands the road with its muscle sports car body that reflects Camaros of the ’60s. It engulfs the styling with a modern touch that gives it a mysterious but intriguing look along with ultra cool 20-inch flangeless painted aluminum tires. The racing wheels provide a quick, agile ride. Dual-tip chrome exhaust pipes give a roar that intimidates many cars on the road.

Interior: The convertible’s one weakness is a basic, commonplace interior. I am assuming that Chevrolet wanted to make the Camaro all muscle and didn’t spend any time creating a futuristic interior that stands apart from cars on the road. Yet, the Camaro was voted best interior in the 2010 sports car category – due to the deep, bolstered seats, which are extremely comfortable, teamed with the latest technology.

The Camaro convertible keeps you informed and entertained. New for 2011 is the Head-Up Display (HUD), standard on 2LT and 2SS. The HUD displays your speed, rpm and more – even your radio station – on the windshield. You can customize the display height and intensity. Best of all, with OnStar turn-by-turn navigation, your directions also appear on the HUD.

The interior isn’t anything special, but it does have 10-inch Boston Acoustics subwoofer speakers accompanied with Connect Voice Command with Bluetooth, Bluetooth streaming audio with Remote USB port, automatic headlights, Bluetooth hands-free calling, heated seats, dual-zone automatic climate control and USB iPod integration. The package, however, does not have navigation or a rearview camera available; you’ll have to just rely on the rear-parking assist.

Performance: As well as Camaro convertible having a quick one-two punch, it can handle with the best of them. It has both manual and automatic transmission available. Painstakingly engineered to have coupe-like dynamics, its 312 horsepower Direct Injection V6 offers an impressive 29-MPG highway.

Chevy has managed to create a quick muscle driving machine that is relatively fuel efficient with the RallyE model having a surprising 18 city/29 Highway fuel economy which is shocking to a person obsessed with the muscle car.

Safety & Security: The Camaro has the unmatched lifesaving technology of OnStar to help keep you safe. Standard for the first six months, it includes Automatic Crash Response, a four-wheel anti lock braking system, electronic brake force distribution with brake assist (EBD), all-speed traction control and electronic stability control.
