An all-new model for 2010, the Chevrolet Camaro adds a second model to the lineup with the introduction of a new convertible. Changes to the coupe include an eight-horsepower bump on its base 3.6-litre V6, the addition of the Directions and Connections navigation plan to OnStar, and a Head-Up Display added to specific trim lines.

The Camaro coupe and convertible share engines, starting with a 3.6-litre V6, with six-speed manual transmission or optional six-speed automatic with manual shift mode. Two 6.2-litre V8 engines are available in the Camaro SS, both of them derived from the Corvette’s LS3 engine: a 400-horsepower L99 with a six-speed automatic, and a 426-horsepower LS3 with a six-speed manual. The L99 engine includes Active Fuel Management, which shuts off half the cylinders under light load for improved fuel economy.

The V6 is available in LS, 1LT and 2LT trim lines, while the SS comes in 1SS or 2SS. The convertible comes in 1LT, 2LT and the SS trim lines.
