The 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302 in Gotta Have It Green

Ford Mustang continues to roll, outsells Camaro and Challenger again in July 2012

Sales numbers for the muscle car segment in America were down a bit in July 2012 but that didn’t stop Ford Motor Company from being the top dog in the rear wheel drive performance car class for the third month in a row – beating the Chevrolet Camaro by a margin of just 445 units.

July 2012 wasn’t as good to the Ford Mustang as May or June but the entire segment was down by almost 5,500 units (compared to June) so the Ford Mustang was still able to outsell the Chevrolet Camaro and the Dodge Challenger for the third month in a row. On the year, the Mustang has led the Camaro and Challenger in sales four times (February, May, June, July) in the first seven months of 2012 while the Camaro claimed the other three months (January, March, April).

The Ford Mustang moved 7,371 units in July 2012 which, while a significant decline from the 10,427 in May and the 10,263 in June, was enough to be the bestselling muscle car in the US. This figure of 7,371 Mustangs sold in July 2012 accounts for an 8.3% improvement over the same month in 2011 while the Chevrolet Camaro saw its sale figures decrease from July 2011 to July 2012. On the year, Ford has sold 55,995 Mustang Coupes and Convertible – up 22% from the first seven months of 2011. The Mustang now trails the Camaro in 2012 annual sales by just 628 units.
