General Motors sold 5,569 examples of the Chevrolet Camaro convertible and coupe in September 2013, marking the third straight month the GM pony car has led its segment in sales. Although the Camaro experienced a decline in sales of 0.2% in September in comparison to last September, it still managed to sell more units than the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger.
Ford sold 4,420 copies of the Mustang in September, a loss of 0.4% compared to September 2012. The Mustang experienced strong sales in May, June and July, however it is still lagging behind the Camaro in yearly sales, selling 59,165 units to date in comparison to the Camaros 64,815. The Challenger has proven to be the weakest selling product of the three, selling 3,932 units last month and 42,577 units so far this year.
The Camaro would have to post poor sales numbers in the final months of 2013 for the Mustang to surpass its yearly sales. This may prove to be difficult for Ford, with updated 2014 Camaro models already arriving on dealer lots. Though next year, the tables may turn with the launch of the all-new 2015 Mustang.
