Mustang beats Camaro and Challenger in July sales

17shelbyGT350R_3645ss

The 2017 Ford Mustang has been arriving at dealers now for some time, and in July has again outsold its competitors from Dodge and Chevrolet.

Moving 9,565 copies of the Ford Mustang and Shelby GT350 out the door of the Flat Rock, MI assembly plant, the pony car has sustained a solid sales pace into the third model year of the sixth-generation.

The fact it has outsold the competition again this month is good, but what’s happening with the all-new 2017 Chevrolet Camaro is quite interesting.

Since the arrival of the all-new design of the Chevrolet Camaro, it has been selling less than the previous generation, this month at only 5,520 units.

Even the Dodge Challenger that’s the oldest design in the marketplace has again outsold the all-new Chevrolet Camaro in July, with 5,619 copies out the door.

While Mustang fans will easily say it’s simply because their car is the best, the fact that the Chevrolet Camaro is performing so badly is actually somewhat curious.

We have test driven the new Camaro and honestly found it to be the best of the brand yet, and in-fact recently out shined the Mustang in a recent Face Off video we put together.

Facts are facts however, and even Chevrolet fans seem to be turning their backs on their own Camaro for whatever reasons be its higher pricing or the new styling that’s hardly new.

Dodge Challenger on the other hand hasn’t changed much since it was introduced, but has benefited from heavy marketing this summer with television advertising and online marketing that pushes its performance image.

Ford on the other hand, spends little on their Mustang for advertising and marketing – yet it’s winning the horse race by well more than a photo finish.
