The convertible option was available
on the base (shown) or Z28 Camaro.
It was similar to the Series II 3.8-liter V-6s that could be found in several of GM's large front-drive models, here tuned to produce 200 horsepower. Whereas the 3.4 came standard with a five-speed manual and offered a four-speed automatic as an option, the 3.8 came only with the automatic.
Z28s returned with their 275-horsepower 5.7-liter V-8, available with the CAGS (Computer-Aided Gear Selection) six-speed manual or four-speed automatic. After being announced for 1994 but never offered, traction control finally made the options list in '95.
Available on Z28s only, it was the same Acceleration Slip Regulation (ASR) system that had been standard on Corvettes since '92, and could likewise be turned off by a dashboard switch should tire spin be desired.
Appearance-wise, Z28s and base coupes with optional T-tops got a black-painted roof, though body-colored roof and mirrors were now a no-charge option. Base models also gained optional chrome wheel covers late in the model year.
The base Camaro did not get the
traction control system available on the Z28.
