Nice! How would I go about finding how many Camaros were produced with the options I ordered? Just curious... Thanks.

OR, they dropped because people are waiting for the 14's? :noidea:

Could be though, you know? I might be able to live with that new rear, but it's definitely given me pause about "upgrading". Wife hates it too, said it looks like her Honda. Makes you wonder if GM intentionally designed it this way with hoping for sales to pick up in a different segment than the 2010-2013 owners.

This Pony race is far from over. I think once the 2014's hit the road peoples feelings about them will change. If the sales difference was due to people NOT liking the refresh then I would imagine there would be more of a bump NOW while 2013's are still available. Also I'm sure it doesn't hurt that on the Mustang you can get up to $3000 off with incentives right now.

Cam#7 06-03-2013 03:13 PM

I wouldn't be surprised of a little HP bump to stimulate the current Gen5 owners to trade-in. It's a little lame that the SS engine has changed in 4 years.

Can you explain this please? I've only seen $1,500. What zip code are you in? Thanks.

Demon 1LE 06-03-2013 09:03 PM

Hopefully the ugly 14s can save us.

closs2sx 06-04-2013 01:06 PM

02908. Seen $2000 across the board and an extra $1000 on top of that if you opt to lease.

That's what I did:clap2:

Demon 1LE 06-04-2013 02:24 PM

exactly ! thats what explains that downward descent when 13's are stacked on dealers lots and 14 information (and hatred) has been out for more then a month.

doc7000 06-04-2013 04:45 PM

This is a segment in which many people were inaccurately predicting its demise, and it has gone in the opposite direction. Year over year this segment has only grown from an average of 15,078 per month in 2009 to this year being at 18,765. That is an increase of more then 3,000 units a month average and with no sign slowing down so far. 3,000 units a month is 36,000 more units a year, makes one optimistic about what is in store for everyone down the road.

LAWMAN 06-04-2013 05:09 PM

well,thats just one month that the mustang has outsold the camaro,that i can recall,?
im really not impressed that much with the 14's,however,im sure thay will look alot different in person,just like my 10'did,...i have one more year to pay on my 10'..i may go ahead and pay it off,as it stands there are only about three vehicles i would trade mine for,a)CTS-V COUPE,B)ZL1 and c)14' VETTE,i will have my 10' for four years to the day next year,and i still love it,still can't take my eye's off of her after she has had a bath,

With 2014 model year Camaros coming online I would expect production to be reduced as they switch over.

Though I wouldn't be shocked with the changes that they have made to the Mustang every year to see the Mustang edge out the Camaro this year.

Personal opinion aside, I think the opposite will actually happen. Being the first biggie update, coupled with the fact that the vast majority of Camaro buyers are just normal car shoppers and not enthusist, I think sales will grow. The 1/2LS might be the biggest benefactor of the refresh as it doesnt look as stripped out as the 10-13 models. With the current 1/2LS, it looks like you bought the base base car, in the lower price ranges I think that might of scared a few away. Guess we shall see in couple months.

Z/28orSs 06-05-2013 07:41 PM

The real question is why is the challenger up all of a sudden?? It sure us ugly as sin...

THUMPER20X 06-05-2013 11:51 PM

I dont think its the Camaro going down hill, it's just stagnating. And the new vette will steal alot of sales, remember Chev is the only one that has to share its performance cars between two models in a somewhat comparable price range. The Mustang is getting better and better IMO and it's only going to gain more.

Mustang Sully 06-06-2013 03:14 AM

The Camaro & Challenger are big! bigger than mustang. They ride nicer because they are sedan based sub frames with IRS and more wb. The stang numbers surprise me. Stangs are still 107" wb and solid rear axle. I thought old school would fade. I prefer the feel of a solid rear axle. I know it will not win Laguna, but I drive on a street not a track. Mustangs have hotrod feel about them. I am surprised that in todays market they still sell.
The Challenger bashing comment is unfair, Challenger is a very nice ride. It feels big and is, but, if you like MOPAR I think it is their best passenger/perfomance car ever.

Mustang Sully 06-06-2013 04:25 AM

What is cool?
 
The jury is out on the 2014 Camaro face lift. I think it is a draw. If someone is set on Camaro they will buy. I thought for sure they would rework the dash.
I think Camaro resonates with Chevyphiles and is a great vehicle, I never liked the dash. It would keep me from buying the car. You see the dash a lot during your ownership. Mustang refreshed their dash after five years. Considered how cool Camaro would be with a 1980 Firebird looking dash, and a Chevy 10 bolt solid rear axle with the 426 HP LS3, Tremec 6061, and a 3.90:1 helical ring gear. Now that is an awesome muscle car. Sorry I was in highschool in the sixties pony wars and those cars will always define what is cool to me.
