Challenger outsells Mustang

Challenger outsells Mustang last month and year-to-date so far. One thing I have to say as far as all three muscle cars go (Camaro, Mustang, and Challenger)...

IT'S OOOOON NOW!

http://www.autoblog.com/2009/03/13/d...month-and-ytd/

God knows once the new Stang comes out, that number will jump right back up. Oh well, at least Big Bertha got some moment in the spotlight.

That's because everyone who wants a Mustang already owns one.

actually, i've been reading a couple of threads on mustang forums, and they don't seem very impressed with the 2010. I quite like it though.

The 2010 Mustang is growing on me. I actually considered it for a moment, but after building one online the price came to within $3k to my 2SS. For me to even consider anything else besides the Camaro it would have to be much cheaper...not just a few thousand.

Only because Dodge has been throwing every discount possible at the Challenger, plus the fact that it's brand new. When the 'stang was brand new, it was moving 5 times as many vehicles.

it was also being produced in wayyyy higher volume.......


the fact that a limited 2 door muscle car is beating the mass produced mustang is amazing and there is no excuse you can use to deny it.




edit: and all this in a recession....which wasnt the case in 05 when the current mustang came out.

Well why would anyone but a new mustang with all the talk about the 5.0 coming out. I would be waiting it out for that.

Good for the Challenger.

The '09 Mustang is a lame duck,of course the Dodge would sell better. The '10 has been shown off since last November and the '09 Mustang has a ultra-short production rule of about 45K,they're just not on the lots.
Regardless,i love that the Challenger is selling,discounts or not. I want this car to be around for awhile. Good for Dodge.

Because it was selling more. Dodge is producing the Challenger in limited quantities and they're still on lots.
