Chevrolet Camaro Poised to Claim 4th Straight Muscle Car Sales Title over Ford Mustang

Although the Ford Mustang was able to claim its second straight monthly sales title in November, the Chevrolet Camaro appears to be well on its way to claiming a 4th straight annual sales title in the segment with the Mustang some 4,000+ units behind heading into the last month of the year.

The Chevrolet Camaro posted its second worst month of 2013 in November but thanks to winning the monthly sales race in January, February, March, April, July, August and September, these low numbers in November didn’t have a huge impact on the Camaro’s lead in 2013 sales over the Ford Mustang. There have been 75,552 Camaros sold throughout 2013 and while that is a drop of almost 4% from the first 11 months one year earlier, GM has still sold enough of their muscle cars to hold a commanding lead over the Ford Mustang.

After the Ford Mustang claimed just two of the monthly muscle car sales titles over the course of the first nine months of 2013, the mighty Mustang has battled back in October and November – posting consecutive months where it outsold the Chevrolet Camaro. In November, the Mustang beat the Camaro by a margin of 5,376 units to just 5,068 units after besting the Camaro in October by nearly 1,300 units. This has allowed the Mustang to close the gap in annual sales numbers considerably but with a difference of 4,093 vehicles as we head into December, Ford would have to post an incredible month to catch the Camaro. Considering that December and January have historically been two of the worst months for muscle car sales, there is a very good chance that Ford won’t be able to sell 4,100 more units than GM sells Camaros in December.
