The Camaro and Mustang sales for the year are about as close as it gets! :w00t:

Now if Dodge would bring their Challenger pricing back down into this orbit, they would be getting a larger market share.

I really believe price is what's holding that car back. You can get a GT500 or a ZL1 for what Dodge wants for the Yellow Jacket SRT-8, and that's ridiculous. :thumbdown:

Anyway, glad to see the competition is still there! :drinking:

I'm with you there. The V6 seems competitively priced, but the 5.7 is not good enough. IMO the 6.4 hemi should be what the R/T gets and a SC 6.4 should be in the SRT.

Thanks again for the info , as always bright and simple to read .

I like this analysis!

The Camaro seems to hit the "market mark" better than the Ford or Dodge.

I would not own a Challenger; the build time is 24 hours, and it looks like it.

Mustangs are OK; more "pretty" to me than muscle.

Every time I see these stats I feel like I am patting myself on the back & I have nothing to do with Camaro sales, Chevrolet or the auto industry at all LOL

It's nice rooting for the winning team.

lol...I guess if Camaro falls to second or third place, we'll just have to all go buy a second one to help things out...lol

And you think the price of a ZL1 is not rediculous! ???

It's spelled 'ridiculous'...

And no, not at all. It's excellent value for the performance.

Yes, the ZL1 price is ridiculous.

However, supercharged 580HP >>>>> 470HP N/A that's in a boat IMO.

Competition like this is going to keep them all striving to be better than ever...which is great news for us. :chevy:

I hear you on that! I bought my Camaro at the end of November 2011.... Since then I've influenced two others (my parents, and another family I know) to buy a 2012 Camaro. It makes me happy to see the Camaro sales figures are back above the Mustang again. Admittedly, I do like what they've done with the 2013 Mustang compared to previous models so I understand their uptick in sales... but I still want the Camaro on top. :D :chevy:

Are you kidding me? I know I'll upset some but the ZL1 is the Camaro super car... the most powerful factory street-legal Camaro ever... for the price, I think it's an AMAZING deal.
