Chevrolet Camaro sales grew 21 percent to 5,303 units in November 2015, giving it the fastest growth rate among the American pony cars while also placing it squarely in second place between the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger in the November sales volume race.
Speaking of, Dodge Challenger sales grew 2.5 percent to 4,263 units and Ford Mustang sales dropped 16 percent to 7,286 units, meaning that the Camaro lost by 1,983 units to the Mustang but outsold the Challenger by 1,040 vehicles.

For the first 11 months of the year, Camaro sales are down 9 percent to 72,136 units, but Challenger sales are up 32 percent to 61,621 units and Mustang sales are up 55 percent to 113,607 units.
The GM Authority Take
To put the figures into perspective: that’s 5,303 sales of the fifth-generation, 2015 Camaro — a vehicle that’s five years old, ended production last month, and that is now being replaced by the all-new, 2016 Camaro — a vehicle that’s newer, better, more capable, and more fun to drive in pretty much every way possible compared to the fifth-gen Camaro, and compared to the Mustang. So, 5,303 units and a second-place month-end standing is pretty good, if not better than that.
We should also note that the Camaro’s 20 percent sales gain in October is not the result of some sky-high, inventory-clearing sell-out incentives, either. As we write this, the 2015 Camaro has the following manufacturer incentives:
All 2015 Camaro models excluding Z/28:
- $1,500 consumer cash
- 0% APR for 72 months
2015 Camaro Z/28:
- $1,500 consumer cash + $1,000 purchase bonus cash = $2,500 total cash allowance
- 0% APR for 72 months + $1,000 purchase bonus cash
That’s pretty light, for an outgoing model. We’ll leave it at this: let’s see where we are when the all-new 2016 Camaro begins hitting dealer lots on a full-scale basis.
