The Camaro Wasn't The Best-Selling Muscle Car In America Last Month

Muscle Car

So that narrows the contenders down to two.

March 2016 was a very, very good sales month for one particular American muscle car. According to data first gathered by Torque News, it was the Ford Mustang that sold a total of 12,563 units. By comparison, Chevy sold 6,879 Camaros, a combination of both 2015 fifth-gen and 2016 sixth-gen models during the same period. The Dodge Challenger continued at its regular third-place, with 5,369 examples sold. But do the quick and easy math and you’ll notice that the Mustang outsold the Camaro and Challenger combined.

The Camaro, as you might recall, was the top-selling muscle car in the US for five years straight. Not so for 2015. Now, will those sales figures change in the coming months with more and more 2016 Camaros arriving in showrooms? Very likely. Will the new Camaro once again become the number one muscle car sold in the US? Not necessarily. Reason being is that in its second year of production, Mustang sales have continued to climb. Often times, sales drop once the initial hype subsides over new product, but that hasn’t been the case with the Mustang. Will the new Camaro sell better as time goes on as well? We’ll just have to wait and see.
