Chevy to go convertible with Camaro, Camaro coupe in 2009


The Camaro is here, well almost. After the concept Camaro sports coupe which debuted during 2006’s auto show, Chevrolet is aiming high with a convertible.

The Detroit Auto Show is now looking at the Camaro Convertible Concept.The automaker has said that the Camaro convertible will go on sale shortly after the coupe arrives in 2009. Camaro is expected to be affordable and this is sen as giving Chevy a chance to sell a lot of Camaros.



According to technical analysts, the concept coupe and convertible will be powered by a V-8 engine. It is also being rumoured that Chevy might offer V-6s in a bid to the price down. This may be seen as copying from what Ford does with its Mustang. Analyst predict that a V-6 will start in the low $20,000 range. Mustang starts at around $20,000 for the V-6.

Camaro in fact will be the final member of a trio of new cars on which Chevy is banking heavily. First up is the redesigned 2008 Malibu due out this fall. It's built off the same platform as the Saturn Aura sedan that bowed for 2007. Malibu will be followed by a redesigned Impala and then Camaro.

While it is being forecast that Malibu could sell 200,000 units annually, the Aura might see 300,000 units. Meanwhile 100,000 Camaros are what industry experts expect.

The convertible Camaro is expected to feature a traditional softtop rather than a retractable metal hardtop. This according to the company is being done to reduce cost and retain trunk space . The convertible concept is done in the traditional orange pearl with twin gunmetal gray sport stripes.
