Thumbs up Chevy Camaro interest at all time high. Top viewed car on AutoTrader.

As reported on homepage.

Quote:
Have you driven a Ford lately? Maybe not in person, but it appears a lot of people are online. According to a news release, a record 16.12 million unique monthly visitors in June pushed Ford vehicles to claim four of the top 5 slots on the AutoTrader .com's list of top 20 most-viewed new cars in June of this year. But it appears most of you really want a Chevrolet.

So, what car is in the top spot? It’s the Chevy Camaro. According to AutoTrader, “For a second consecutive month, the Chevrolet Camaro took the top spot on AutoTrader.com's list of most-viewed new vehicles in June. The redesigned Camaro continues to benefit from enormous buzz and, with the first models now hitting the streets, should continue to enjoy interest from car shoppers for some time.”

I haven’t driven one yet but hope to soon. It’s been selling like hot cakes and Chevrolet can’t build them fast enough. It’s been outselling the new Ford Mustang, according to published reports.

There’s no way to break down what the hot sellers are locally, but I just haven’t seen ANY of the new Camaros in or around Hartford. I have seen the new Mustang on a couple of occasions.

Here is the list of the top 20 searches in June:

* Chevy Camaro
* Ford F-150
* Ford Mustang
* Ford Focus
* Ford Escape
* Chevy Silverado 1500
* Jeep Wrangler
* Ford Fusion
* Honda Accord
* Toyota Camry
* Volkswagen Jetta
* Dodge Challenger
* BMW 3-Series
* Dodge Ram 1500
* Ford F-250
* Nissan Altima
* Chevy Corvette
* Honda Civic
* Toyota Tacoma
* Chevy Malibu

It's because wrangers are either really nice or trashed so probably more research required to find one. Where as Camry has more customers that are just gonna go back to same toyota dealer bypassing Autotrader.

There is a dealer listing a used LS for 33 grand and it looks like a 2LT to me in the pic.. (darwin award). The ad has been sitting there for a month.

Pretty cool! GO Camaro! But, it goes to show you how much GM has to catch up now. Ford is kicking ass in sales compared to everyone else...

At least it's a good starting place after leaving bankrupcy court. GM vehicles are still the best American built cars and trucks. However,........Heres why the F150 is the 2nd top search. I think anyways.

I certainly contributed to this an will continue to do so... I typically check daily to see who has what in the area and check a few VINs to see what options the cars have. I bet the searches are mostly Camaro5 members.

I've said it before I'll say it again:

Build a car people want, they will buy it! This new Camaro is high quality, competitive or a winner in every category of sporty coupe, and just looks awesome and modern.

Also, GM turned their engineers loose. They told them to just do it, with very little interference from the bean counters. Perhaps this is a lesson for Fritz Henderson - give your engineers and designers complete freedom.

I think you will see this now that Bob Lutz is sticking around with the new GM for a reported 3 more years!
