The Chevrolet Camaro SS

Camaro outsells the Mustang, Challenger, 370Z in September

Sales numbers are in for September 2011 and for the 8th month this year, the Chevrolet Camaro has outsold the Ford Mustang, the Dodge Challenger and the Nissan 370Z – continuing the Chevy muscle car’s dominance of the rear wheel drive segment that has gone nearly unchallenged in 2011.

September 2011 was a good month for the Chevrolet Camaro, as 6,994 new bowtie-clad muscle cars left the dealership with a happy new owner behind the wheel. That number accounts for a 10.6% improvement over September 2010 while also providing a 2.5% increase over August of this year. With the win in September, the Camaro has now lead the American rear wheel drive muscle car segment in every month but June when the Ford Mustang managed to break Chevy’s shutout through 2011. General Motors has sold 70,249 Camaro coupes and convertibles in 2011 while Ford has moved just 56,618 units over the same period of time. This difference of nearly 14,000 units may prove to be an insurmountable lead for the Camaro unless Ford pulls out some sort of miracle to massively improve Mustang sales by the end of the year.
