Camaro beats the Mustang, Challenger and 370 in August 2011

The Chevrolet Camaro once again lead the segment in sales, with the Chevy muscle besting the Ford Mustang, Dodge Challenger and Nissan 370Z through August 2011 – the 7th time Chevy has lead the segment out of the 8 months of 2011.

In August 2011, the Chevrolet Camaro moved 6,823 coupe and convertibles for an improvement of 7.9% over the same month in 2010, although that total presented a decline from the month before when GM moved 7,671 muscle cars. For the year, General Motors has delivered 63,255 Camaros so not only has it led 7 or the 8 months of 2011 but it also holds a very comfortable lead of almost 11,000 units over the Mustang. Based on the current sales figures, GM could stop selling the Camaro for November and December and they would still have a great chance of beating the Mustang in annual sales for the second year in a row. Before 2010, the Camaro hadn’t outsold the Mustang since 1985.

The Ford Mustang moved 5,718 units in August 2011 – an increase of 2.7% over the same month in 2010 but compared to July, the Mustang saw a decline of roughly 1,100 units. The Ford Mustang offers less power than the Camaro but thanks to Ford’s efforts in suspension and chassis technology, the Mustang is just as fast (if not faster) than its cross town rival sporting the bowtie. Even with that and the lower price in mind, the Mustang continues to trail the Camaro from month to month.
