Camaro stays top dog over Ford Mustang again
In the 2012 muscle car sales race, the Chevrolet Camaro has come out on top again beating the Ford Mustang for the third straight year. Even though GM’s 2012 Camaro sales were down 4.4 percent year-over-year, it was still enough to gain the edge over the Mustang for 2012. Data from both automakers confirm that the Camaro sold 84,391 units and edged the Ford Mustang, which sold 82,995 units during the same time period last year.
Last year the Camaro blew away its competitor Ford Mustang by selling over 18,000 units more in 2011. But the Ford Mustang is gaining ground and it was a much closer race in 2012. But this marks the third straight year where the Camaro has come out on top in the pony car sales race since 2010 when Chevrolet introduced the fifth-generation retro-looking Camaro. But that could change for the 2013 model sales race.
