Performance and technology lead the list of upgrades

Since it roared onto the street in 1967 Camaro has been a force to be reckoned with — the epitome of what a performance car should be.

With the introduction of the Fifth Generation in 2010 Camaro continued the cross breading of jaw-dropping design, raw power and the latest technology. Nothing represented that more than the ZL1 — inspired by the legendary 1969 Camaro with its all-aluminum racing engine, made available to the public for the first time in 2012.

Now Camaro is ready to make history again with the introduction of the ZL1 Convertible. It has all the power, performance and fighter plane sophistication that has wowed enthusiasts — minus the top. Also new in 2013 is the Camaro SS 1LE Performance Package — a heart and mind meld of the SS with unique ZL1 features. There’s also the connectivity and entertainment of Chevrolet MyLink — now available on every 2013 Camaro that tears out of the dealership parking lot.

For 46 years Camaro drivers — and those who long to join the club — have pushed us to deliver power, performance and technology. It’s what they’ve come to expect. And it’s exactly what we’re delivering again in 2013.

Camaro ZL1 Convertible

It’s the most technologically advanced Camaro ever. And now you have the option to drop the top in about 18 seconds flat. Introducing the Camaro ZL1 Convertible.

Feel the thrust produced by an all-aluminum 6.2L supercharged engine that packs 580 horsepower and 556 lb.-ft. of torque. Experience the excitement the performance that comes with the third generation of Magnetic Ride Control, world-class braking and four-wheel independent suspension that you can’t get on a Mustang.

Inside you’ll find a cockpit packed with more technology than ever before, including the Heads-Up Display that projects performance data right to the windshield and a 7-inch diagonal radio touch-screen. You’ll also enjoy the latest in connectivity, information and entertainment of Chevrolet MyLink.

There’s no doubt that getting behind the wheel, dropping the top and hitting the gas is the best way to experience this beast.

The 2013 Camaro Coupe SS 1LE Performance Package

For more than two decades, owners and enthusiasts have coveted the competition-ready third- and fourth-generation Camaro Coupe 1LE Package. Now the 1LE is back —combining white-knuckle performance elements of the ZL1 and SS with a decidedly aggressive attitude of its own.

Advanced technology has always driven Camaro. But that technology isn’t just reserved for what goes under the hood — it’s also in the cockpit.

Starting in 2013 every Camaro LT, SS and ZL1 will come standard with Chevrolet MyLink1 — a 21st century upgrade on how you can enjoy your music and connect with the world outside your vehicle.

MyLink uses your Bluetooth® 3-paired smartphone to stream Pandora® Stitcher SmartRadio™ through the system with Gracenote®, which organizes your music library by populating song information and album art.

The system fully integrates your Bluetooth®-paired smartphone, including contacts for advanced hands-free calling and phone control. And so you can easily enjoy all of these features without interrupting your active lifestyle, the convenient 7-inch diagonal touch-screen allows you to control those apps right through the radio unit or steering wheel-mounted controls.

Even more, you can use advanced voice recognition for true hands-free calling and the entire system — from the apps on your phone to your music-loaded USB drive. Just say the word.

The system is also available with built-in navigation, to keep you headed in the right direction. The navigation radio includes a 3-month subscription to SiriusXM Nav Traffic, for real-time updates.
