Last month it was 65% v6. Total for 2011 though
My dealer has 75% v6 on the lot since January or so if that tells you anything. In 2010 it was the other way around, about 60/40 v8

Wink Gung Ho over the Five-0 but ZL1 will set High Water Mark in PONYCAR History!

Well, it seems obvious that die-hard Ford fans are gung-ho over the 5.0. It truly is a great engine and for it's size, very very respectable. I respect it.

However, this respect I have for the 5.0 and the recent articles on the new GT and Boss does nothing to diminish my Highest Admiration and #1 spot in my heart for what the designers, engineers, and production folks are planning for Camaro ZL1. The ZL1 is truly going to be THE high water mark in Ponycar History!

Can wait to get mine on order!

No, 48,761 were sold in (calender year) 2011. A lot of the 2011's were sold in 2010 - remember that 2011 production started in June 2010.

The sales data is new, untitled sales. Doesn't matter whether they are leftover 2010s, 2011s or 2012s. If it was new and sold in the month of June it is counted.
Mustang won June 2010 and won June 2011. Don't worry it will go back to the Camaro being ahead in July.

Not to surprised the Mustang came out a little ahead for the month. Large incentives on the Mustang and an updated 2012 Camaro on the way probably helped. Still great numbers all around.

If there were demand for it, Ford would add another shift for Mustnags. There isn't, so they haven't. Last I checked, the 'stang had over 100 days of inventory on the average lot, vs the 'ideal' 60 day supply

Besides sheet metal, there is very little that is different between the Challenger & the Charger or 300. That added volume is what allows them to keep building Challengers. Plus, the platform is borrowed from the previous generation Mercedez ... E-class, I think, so it doesn't cost them too much to build

Probably not going to lower the actual MSRP, but it may cause Chevy to throw in some incentives. Low interest or cash back, which would make it cheaper in the long run and probably bring some sales in. To my knowledge there hasn't ever been an incentive of any kind on this car because it sells so well without them. Excluding incentives meant for the whole line-up of Chevy cars, I got $1000 back on mine because my sister has a Saturn Thanks sis!

In this case I am going to go with the simplest answer, this same time last year the Mustang had a spike in sales.

The reason this happened during the same time last year was because the 2011s were hitting the streets so they had massive discounts on the 2010s. I am willing to bet that its the $3,000+ cash on the hoods of the 2011s that gave them a boost.

The idea that consumers are just discovering the Mustang which is possible, maybe more people have driven them. Maybe they enjoyed it enough to go out and buy them however the data that we have currently doesn't support that. So until I see data that supports that I am just going to stick with the data that I do have which says bigger discounts on 2011 model to make room for the 2012.
