What sells the best is not an indicator of the quality of the product, it only tells you the popularity.

As far as how did it happen, Dodge does make a nice car. Everyone picks their own favorites, and their users prefer the Dodge, thus why it won their choice award. The Challenger, Camaro, and Mustang are all great cars in their own way.

..and to answer the question "Why not" that is simple, the Camaro isn't going to win EVERY award.

It was a stupid ass poll that probably was a fix. If not then mopar owners voted and Camaro owners didn't. Did we on this board even know about this poll? If we did and we voted Camaro would've won for sure.

Challenger drivers are on Facebook the whole day voting for these stuff!!

Camaro owners are on the road where the real fun is at.

I really can't get too excited about what the average traffic at an online shopping site thinks or what the facebook stats might be. At best, it's a pre-purchase research trend.

I'd feel exactly the same way if cars.com gave the nod to either the Mustang or the Camaro. Or any of whatever else they tracked.

The bad thing is there are alot of people (my boss included) who buy this car because it has a HEMI in it but have no clue what HEMI stands for. Just makes me laugh a little. Sheep!!! That is my answer to "How dafuq did this happen?"

im a realtivley new camaro owner,and wasnt really looking for one when i bought mine. One day after work i was bored, so i stopped by a chevy dealership, they had a 2012 challenger, 2011 mustang, and a 2011 ss2. I drove all 3 back to back, and hands down the camaro performed better. i did like the interior in the challenger, but didnt want to sacrafice performance for that. Plus i love the looks of the camaro!

I like the Challenger also, I can see why it was picked. A lot of people I talk to like the Camaro, but think the Challenger looks closet to the original. Most like it because of the looks, they don't know anything about the performance. If not for the price difference, I might have bought the Challenger. I'm still looking to get a used one.

Who cares. I hope everyone and their grandmother snatches up the rest. I don't see many Camaro's let alone any SS's or even ZL1's where i live and the less i see the better.

I actually found the article on the Motor Trend forums. Most people said the same thing.

I bought my 2012 because it had 470hp/470tq (under-rated), it could and did run the 1/4 in 12:40s times, bone stock. It would easily show it's tailights to my past 04 Cobra, 10-SS, and my present 5.0. It has the power to run 184 mph top end. It looked great, turned heads wherever it was, and was the most comfortable car I have ever driven.
