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

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.

Anyway, glad to see the competition is still there!

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.

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.

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.
