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).

I'm guessing the Challenger is coming up because you just don't see very many of them on the roads. I look left and right and I see another Camaro and sometimes it just gets annoying because you're like...aww man another person stealing my attention on the road! Then you start to notice just how ugly you car is because it might be a little dirty from you driving all day long or having to be on a country highway for almost an hour to get to class, and then you have all these types of bugs on your car that just makes someone else' car look better(sorry for the run-on).



ANYWAY, long story short. If you see someone on the road very often and you're a car enthusiast are you going to want to buy something you see every day or are you going to want to buy something you don't see too often?

For me, I'd go with something I don't see to often just because I like to have something not very many people have.

I'll admit to being shallow... and that was a very big reason why I swapped my Mustang for the Challenger. Problem is, once you get in the new one you notice every other one out there.

This is completely false. Dodge do not advertise the Challenger and the last specific Challenger commercials (two of them) was back in 2010.

The Challenger is the least advertised vehicle compare to the Camaro and Mustang.

Maybe in "Official" Dodge advertising but have you noticed there seems to be many more automotive related ads using Challengers than Camaros or Mustangs. It's called product placement and I bet part of Dodge's advertising budgets get paid to companies to get them to put the Challenger in their commercials.

If you notice in those automotive related ads that the Dodge moniker is missing, blurred out, or not visible at all? Dodge is not paying anyone to use the Challenger (or any of their products) when the moniker is blurred out or removed.
