2011 Chevy Camaro Convertible Price Announced

September 30th, 2010 2 comments

The 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible is official and the price has been announced! Chevy says the Camaro Convertible will go on sale soon and say the price will start at $30,000 (which is what we were expecting). If you want to see the car in person before it goes on sale, you can see it at the LA International Auto Show on November 17th, but you’ll have to wait until February 2011 until you can get your hands on one.

The Chevy Camaro Convertible SS comes with the availability of a 6.2L V8 which makes 426 horsepower, and a V6 which makes 312 horsepower. I’m sure there is going to be plenty of Chevy Camaro Parts available for the Convertible very quick!

The 21st century rebirth of the Chevrolet Camaro opens a new chapter when the 2011 Camaro Convertible premieres at the Los Angeles International Auto Show on Nov. 17.

The Camaro Convertible will arrive in Chevrolet showrooms in February 2011. Starting price will be $30,000, including $850 destination. (Full details will be released later this year.)

“The Convertible will make the all-new Camaro, already a smash-hit, even more desirable to a greater range of drivers,” says Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet Marketing.

The Convertible model will be available in the same basic model offering as the Camaro Coupe. The standard model will have a 312-hp Direct Injection V6 engine featuring 29 miles per gallon on the highway. The SS model will feature the 6.2-liter V8 engine producing 426 hp. A six-speed manual transmission will be standard, with an optional six-speed automatic.

Camaro is America’s most popular sports car, seizing leadership in U.S. sales with the coupe model that launched in spring of 2009 as a 2010 model. The right to purchase one of the first Convertibles was recently sold at the Barrett-Jackson auction for $205,000, with all proceeds donated to charity.

2011 Chevrolet Cruze

November 29th, 2009 1 comment

2011 Chevrolet Cruze

The 2011 Chevy Cruze is Chevy’s latest car to help battle against the Ford Focus and Honda Civic for the fiercely competitive small car market. This 2011 Chevy Cruze is slated for the North American market, and will feature a few different engines, one of which is our particular favorite which is a turbo Chevy Cruze that is expected to get 40 mpg. It will be interesting to us to see how modifiable this engine will be, and how much power it can make with mods such as a bigger turbo, boost controller, intake and exhaust, while maintaining its high fuel economy.

2011 Chevrolet Cruze

We are very impressed with the interior of the 2011 Chevy Cruze and love the two tone approach that Chevy has used which gives it a very European luxury look and feel. The colors here remind us of a BMW or Mercedes interior color, and we simply love it.

The rear end of the 2011 Chevy Cruze looks very clean and quality. We hope that Chevy puts in the investment to offer these cars with the wheels shown here, as opposed to cheap and flimsy wheel covers that make the car look cheap. We’re excited about the new cars from Detroit, and hope that unlike the Chevy Camaro which is built in Canada, this car will actually be built right here in the USA.
