While 2012 was a tough race between the Chevrolet Camaro and the Ford Mustang, the Camaro ultimately came out on top taking overall sales for the whole year. The Dodge Challenger was included in the race but it didn’t quite compete with the other two cars. It seemed like every other month it was dominated by one or the other.
With the first month of 2013 wrapped up, it looks like the Camaro has a nice start to the year, taking out both the Mustang and Challenger. According to TorqueNews, it looks like the Camaro topped the competition with 1,300 more cars sold than the next competitor. While sales are still declining for the cars, the Camaro is still top dog in the category.
The Dodge Challenger managed to put on a race this January with just 111 units shy of the Ford Mustang sales. Normally the last place Dodge is falling way behind its two domestic rivals.
Hopefully more people opt for these cars in 2013 so the pony cars don’t die out. With decreasing percentages and bringing in less money, who knows what the fate of any of these cars will be. We’d like to see them stick around for awhile.We hope that the future holds big things for Detroit’s Big 3, with redesigns and other fun things to look forward to. We’ll have to see what the numbers say this year between the Challenger, Mustang, and Camaro. Anything can happen, especially with Dodge trying to put in a fight at the beginning of the year.
