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.
Like, THIS ?

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!
