The Chevy Camaro has been outsold by the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger almost two-to-one in recent years. However, in regards to the Chevy Camaro convertible, there is a small ray of sunshine (pun intended) for the Bow Tie brand’s muscle car, as GM Authority has learned that the Camaro was on par with the Blue Oval’s Mustang convertible offering in regards to sales.
Over the 2022 calendar year, GM sold 24,652 units of the Camaro. This figure drastically undercuts Mustang and Challenger sales numbers, which saw 47,566 and 54,314 units sold, respectively. In comparison, the Camaro convertible actually outsold the Mustang convertible.
|2018CY||2019CY||2020CY||2021CY||2022CY January Through November|
|Chevy Camaro Convertible||4,871||3,041||3,085||2,509||3,896|
|Ford Mustang Convertible||5,744||4,335||4,963||4,206||3,557|
As seen in the table above, GM sold 3,896 units of the Chevy Camaro convertible from January 2022 to November 2022. This puts Camaro convertible sales above that of the Mustang convertible, which saw 3,557 units sold in the same timeframe.
It’s worth noting that these figures only include retail sales, and not fleet or rental agency sales.
A poor sales performance likely isn’t helping the Camaro’s business case, as the iconic Bow Tie muscle car is expected to sunset following the 2024 model year. It’s worth noting that there is a possibility of the Camaro nameplate making a return as an all-electric performance sedan. This would make sense from a business perspective, as GM plans to transition to a full EV powertrain lineup across its passenger vehicle portfolio by 2035.
For now, the current 2023 Camaro offers four powerplant choices. These engine options include the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LTG, the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX, the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT1, and the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4.
