The 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302

Ford Mustang wins muscle car sales battle in June 2012

For the third time in 2012 and the second month in a row, the Ford Mustang was the top dog in terms of muscle car sales in the US market in June - posting the second best month of the year and beating the Chevrolet Camaro and the Dodge Challenger.

The Chevrolet Camaro started the 2012 year the same way that it ended 2011, leading the muscle car segment three times in the first four months but the Ford Mustang has battled back, leading the segment in both May and June. More importantly, the Mustang’s strong back to back months has allowed the Ford pony car to climb back within reach of the Camaro in terms of annual sales as FoMoCo tries to prevent GM from claiming the top sales in the muscle car segment for a third year in a row.
