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 !
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 ...

Camaro selling pretty solid and above the Mustang pretty strong for the last three months.

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.
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.

I am glad to see the figures and being a recent camaro owner, I must confess to being surprised. Until the gen-5, I can't recall a time when camaros out sold mustangs. (Maybe during the mustang II days...those were awful cars)

I'm seeing more and more camaros around my area. Although most are v6s. Very few SS models. And even more challengers.

I got a good deal on my SS back in July, but, that is the thing with yellow cars...people either really want them (it was my only color choice) or the really don't.
The dealer to dealer inventory trade was for an equinox. (Which seemed odd to me)

As for the numbers, with the soon to be arriving '14 with the new body tweaks, it doesn't surprise me that sales were down. I hope that I see even more camaros on the road. That means GM is selling them, they will continue development, modding parts will be cheaper (with the larger potential customer base), and eventually more jobs back here in the states. That would be a win-win-win (GM, the country, & me).
