Why is the Challenger coming on so strong this year?

Decent reviews the past couple years, a bit more 'practical' for a small family, and people are realizing that you can't turn your head without seeing another Mustang or Camaro.

I'm one of those 5,659. The sales guy said GM has been pushing Camaro sales and is offering some type of double bonus for each sale.

I suspect a few reasons:

>Substantially higher incentives over the past year than Mustang or Camaro

>More cars into fleets -primarily Daily Rental

>A stronger focus - Dodge doesn't have the number of cars and trucks that Ford and Chevrolet do..........

Someone also mentioned that it's larger and has a bit more room in the back for children......that may or may not be true.

also we can see how many people have traded a Camaro for a Camaro... extra $$ for dealers.. push the Camaros now, and you can be damn sure many will trade for 2016's

both points play into brand loyalty as well.. you like your Camaro and it's been a good experience.. when another vehicle is needed... "guess ill pick up an impala, or an equinox.. or a Silverado"

old models need to be pushed out of the lot.. longer they stay on, more $$ dealers likely will lose when they do sell them.

They are substantially cheaper is why. Poorer quality, less options.. but cheaper.

If the 2015 Mustang was due out in a couple months instead of 7 months I could see sales suffering because of it, I would think Ford would be pushing Mustang sales more now to keep from building up a large amount of leftover 14's when the 15's do come out in April.
Although Camaro sales were off from last month they are still about the same as they were for September 2012 and still higher than the Mustang. I don't think it's time to panic yet.

Once the 14's get out there good and people get a good look.....the sales will go upward again.

I've really gotten used to the 14's now and like them a LOT !

It may not seem like much has changed inside the 14's until you sit in the drivers seat and see the color DIC and the color HUD.....and coming from my 2012....the NAV radio....those 3 things you look at constantly driving so it makes the new ones feel fresh and new !

Not true ! I see way more challengers than camaros on a daily basis. The Challenger incentives a to good. to pass up and they are trying their hardest to sell them. Look at how many different commercials Dodge has for the challenger. So, they should because. they advertises the heck out of those things because they need to get ppl to buy them. Plus, they have a unbelievable deal going where you can take the car back if you don't want it. after your 7 day trial. Shoot ! you would be crazy not to just give one of the best cars (the Challenger) a try. Man, even I was thinking abput doing it just because I knew I could take it right back. I know when I went to Dodge dealer they kept telling me it would be a classic because it wasn't gonna be any more made challengers made. So. they're trying there hardest to sell them nice looking challengers. I can't remember the last time Chevy made a commercial for the camaro in the united states. Just think how many more sales the camaro would have with as much commercials as the Challenger and mustang.

Yea, I agree about the mylink screen. I want a 2010 or 11 camaro just because of the Retro gauge numbers. But now every time I test drive one, it just seem like it's missing something. But I really want and love the 2010 and 11 retro speedometers

I came so close to buying a 2010, but I would have kicked myself when I missed out on the HUD...I love that feature !

One thing about it, they are constantly changing and adding features every year.....A lot different than my 2007 Silverado that basically didn't change from 2007 to 2013.

yea, HUD and Retro speedometers is why the 11 is my perfect car.So , I will get a 11 but just said a 10 to because I might find one way cheaper than a 11 2ss / rs. Plus you can add HUD to the 10 but to much work . We'll see though ...

Good point, but I think another thing is Dodge dealers are more willing to go down on price too and keep incentives active. I got a great offer of 27,995 on a R/T and 24,500 on a v6 at another dealer. Camaro's always been my heart though. That's the only reason I'm not in a Dodge and the Camaro is sexier.

agree! 100% A dealer was telling me they could beat the price of a 12 1ss / rs which was 42,000 and the retail price for the dealer was 52,000for a SRT8 392 Challenger fully loaded.

I didn't trust myself to drive a v8, but I seriously got tempted to see what a 392 would go down to. Not in the cards just yet. BTW isn't this what got GM in trouble though? Selling cars way under invoice and cash back?

I've owned all three, and like them all. The Mustang has a cheap plastic feel. The Challenger has the old school look, and I got the most attention in it. The Camaro is the future. They are all fun to drive. Also if everyone drove the same car, then it wouldn't be as special.

Another factor is your local dealer. The Ford dealer here sucks, the Chevy dealer is average, and the Dodge dealer is top notch.

Either way, I'm buying a Camaro in the spring.
