The Ford Mustang started the pony car revolution 50 years ago, but the Chevrolet Camaro is currently the king of the segment. For the month of May 2014, the Camaro sold 10,340, compared with 9,761 for the Mustang.
This is an outstanding showing considering the Camaro has averaged about 7000 sold units a month since it debuted in 2009. In fact, the Camaro’s monthly sales for this model year have outpaced previous sales for the current iteration of the F-body.
And before you say, “But . . . but the Mustang is about to be reintroduced for 2015, so it stands to reason that sales of the ‘America’s Original Pony Car’ could be outpaced by the Camaro!” you might want to look at past trends: Since 2009, the Camaro has always sold more than the Mustang.
Seems to be that America’s pony car is solidly Camaro. Bow Tie fans, click up your heels and dance a jig—no one’s watching.
