That's quite a jump for Ford, I'm guessing that bump in sales is due to the marketing of the '13 GT500

I see all kinds of ads for Mustangs on TV, online, and in print. I almost Never see any kind of ads for Camaros or Challengers.

It can't be, because prod.Nr of GT500 is 5,000 a year or 400 a month.

i was gonna say, but i think what he means is the commercials they've been running. that's a big spike, but ford has been playing the heck out of their mustang commercial on tv.
where as Chevrolet does next to no marketing for the Camaro.

Look at their incentives: $2500 + low int financing on the hood of most 2012's

No, it's likely due to the fact that the 12's have 0% interest for 60 months.

The 2013 Mustangs have started hitting the dealers...I've seen a few 2013 GTs on the streets here and Killeen, Texas isn't a big market so I am sure there are many more in the bigger markets already.

I still don't like the ass end of Mustangs but the 13's look better than the 11's and 12's at least.

I do not mind see oceans of Mustangs out there... there are so many of them, that they all just blend into the traffic. Camaros still retain a little exclusivity, because the freeway is not carpeted with them. They are still not common enough to simply blend in... Camaros still turn heads!

I did my part to try to boost 5th Gen sales in May.

BTW my area is crawling with Camaro's. It used to be Mustang city here in Alexandria, but I'm starting to see a 2 to 1 ratio of Camaros to Mustangs lately.

I wasn't saying from sales of the '13 GT500, from the fact that it's the most HP of any production engine, it's puttting down insane performance numbers, people eat that up and will buy a version of the Mustang they can afford to have something in the same family. If the ZL1 had been more of a beast Camaro sales would have probably increased more.

Yeah cause the '13 Mustangs are already at the dealers. When the '13 Camaros show up the '12's will be 0% so they can move them too.

Way past time for Camaro incentives. Dealers have loads of $40k and above units.

Well the Camaro's are so good they don't need advertising they advertise themselves.

How did the Mustang outsell the Camaro this month by that much??? I dont understand it because last month the Camaro outsold the Mustang by like 2,000 units or so. Are the incentives on the 12' Mustangs really that good?

I guess Chevrolet needs to put more commercials for the 13' Camaro once it arrives soon. The Camaro needs to continue to outsell the Mustang every month and we need to keep up our yearly sales over the Mustang.

GM needs to advertise.

But this is only the second month out of like the last year where Mustang has outsold Camaro.

Competition is good for everyone. Nobody needs to freak out, LOL.

Thanks for the numbers!

I dont know what you guys are talking about. I saw numerous ZL1 commercials when I watched Indy and on other channels. Granted its not to the same extent of the Mustang commercials but its still out there none the less. BTW over 9,000 in sales for the month is GOOD.

Buying Cycle

Mustang sales are a five year phase ahead of Camaro in gen5 rebirth of the muscle car buying. When Camaro began deliveries (Apr 09) S197 mustangs were bought out. That is the field of buyers who wanted one had one. The 09, 10, 11, mustangs were face lifted but not enough to to pull anyone out of a paid up S197. S197 did 160,000 units per year in 05-06. That is a lot of buying in a very complex car market. That forced GM & Dodge back to muscle car production. I have an 07 GT carefully modified to keep me interested, I still can't bear to give it up!

Does a buying cycle apply to Camaro? In year 4, 5, and 6, does the field of Camaro buyers saturate? The 13 Mustang is different enough from the 05 type to generate buying. This is my explanation (can be wrong depending on future sales) of the May 12 results. The 05 S197 boosted total mustang births to over 10 million. Perspective: Mustang sold 1.1 million units in 2 years. Corvette sold 1 million units in 40 years. This website for sales analysis assumes the world was born in June of 2009. May 2009, fifth full year production of S197s, 8812 mustangs were sold. Next May (13) will Camaro sell 8812 units? We will see.
