General Motors recently revealed the official details of the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible. This model was unveiled today at the 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show! The new convertible model, like the coupe, will be offered with a standard 3.6-liter direct injection V6 engine, which delivers 312 horsepower (232 kW) and 278 lb.-ft. of torque (370 Nm).

On the highway, the engine will return 29 miles per gallon. Production of the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible will start in January 2011 and deliveries are set to begin in February.

This car will be offered in nine exterior colors, with tops offered in tan or black. Price starts at $30,000 MSRP (including $850 destination) for the models offered in 1SS/2SS (V-8) and 1LT/2LT (V-6) trim packages.

The mode potent Camaro SS Convertible will have a 6.2-liter V8 engine. The L99 engine, delivering 400 hp (298 kW) and torque of 410 lb.-ft. (556 Nm), will be offered on the model with an automatic transmission, while the model with a manual transmission will have the LS3 V8 engine delivering 426 horsepower (318 kW) and 420 lb.-ft.
