Chevrolet Camaro Gets Revenge for June - Crushes Ford Mustang in July
The Chevrolet Camaro has had a fairly tough year with regular year over year declines in sales volume but after the Ford Mustang posted big numbers in June, the Camaro posted its own impressive figures in July. GM sold 7,969 copies of the Chevrolet Camaro last month which accounts for an increase of 15% over the number of Camaros sold in the same month in 2012. This strong July combined with the fact that the Mustang saw a huge sales slump last month allowed Chevrolet to claim its 5th monthly muscle car sales title for the year but more importantly – the Camaro has pulled back into the top spot in annual muscle car sales. With 50,281 Camaro coupes and convertibles sold through the 1st seven months of 2013, the bowtie clad muscle car is 1,402 units ahead of the Mustang in annual sales. The bad news for GM is that the Camaro is still 11% behind 2012 in sales through the 1st seven months of the year but with the 2014 Camaro set to hit dealerships soon with a slightly refreshed look – the Camaro may be facing a sales spike.
