Open All Year

The Camaro Convertible has everything you need to enjoy top-down driving year-round.

It’s easy to think a convertible is only a toy for the warmest, sunniest days of summer. But the truth is that, with modern drop-tops, there’s no need for the fun to stop when vacation season ends and the leaves start falling. You can enjoy open-air driving even when the weather turns chilly. And when you absolutely need the roof up, the Camaro Convertible still stares down winter weather without fear. In other words, now you have more excuses than ever to buy a convertible—whether you live in the Sunbelt or the Snowbelt. Start by checking your car’s tires: Camaro LT and LT1 convertibles have all-season tires, whereas SS and ZL1 convertibles have summer-only tires. Then follow this guide to taking advantage of available features that make the Camaro Convertible ideally suited to year-round motoring.

Raise the roof

No matter how many times you check the forecast, the weather can still surprise you. React to unexpected storms quickly with Camaro Convertible’s power top, which you can raise while driving at up to 30 miles per hour.

No More Freezing Your Fingertips

With an available heated steering wheel, the Camaro Convertible can also keep your hands warm, even when the air temperature is less than tropical. No more using “I forgot my gloves” as an excuse for driving with the roof up.

In the Hot Seat

Available heated seats can make any top-down drive more pleasant by keeping your back and legs warmer on brisk days. Combined with the standard automatic climate control, they’ll make fall feel more like summer.

Winter Driving at the Touch of a Button

In serious winter conditions, switch the Camaro’s Driver Mode Selector to Snow/Ice for some extra assistance. It adjusts the throttle and transmission responses, helping you power through winter’s worst.

Traction Technologies

Colder seasons bring unpredictable weather and road conditions, but electronic stability control and ABS can help you handle them. Focus less on the forecast and more on picking your next destination.

Let the Sunshine In

Explore your spontaneous side: Don’t miss any opportunity to soak up some rays. When the sun pokes through on a cloudy day, just push a button on the Camaro’s key fob to lower the roof before you get in the car.

Remote Control
Don’t sit shivering in a freezing cold car: Use the Camaro’s available remote start to warm up the cabin before you open the door. Heat things up ahead of time by using the key fob or the myChevrolet Mobile App.

Skeptical about going top-down on cooler days?

When driving at speed, outside air is directed up over the windshield and passenger compartment and toward the tonneau cover and trunk, rather than directly at your head. Warm air from the heater, meanwhile, envelopes you in a cozy bubble inside the car’s cabin.
