Frankfurt LIVE: 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible

Chevrolet\'s updated 2014 Camaro Convertible has made its world debut in Frankfurt.

Chevrolet has lifted the veil off of the refreshed 2014 Camaro Convertible at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Essentially identical to the facelifted Camaro hardtop that bowed earlier this year, the ragtop will hit showrooms in the not-too-distant future.

Visually, the convertible features a new front fascia with smaller headlights, a narrower grille and a revised bumper. Out back, the double-style tail lamps that defined the outgoing car have been swapped for chunkier single units with LED bulbs.

Chevrolet is not making any significant changes to the interior, but 2014 Camaro Convertibles will gain the automaker's MyLink infotainment system. Controlled by a seven-inch color touch screen mounted on the center stack, MyLink groups the car's connectivity, entertainment and navigation (if equipped) functions into a single easy-to-use unit.

The powertrain lineup remains the same. The base Camaro soldiers on with a 323-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 engine, the SS retains a 6.2-liter V8 rated at 426 horsepower and the range-topping ZL1 features a 6.2-liter V8 that churns out 580 ponies. The convertible body style will not gain a track-ready Z/28 model.

Following its debut in Frankfurt, the revised 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible will go on sale in the United States before the end of the year. The car will retail for €44,990 (roughly $60,000) in Germany, where it enjoys a monopoly on the pony car market because its Ford- and Dodge-badged rivals are not officially imported.
