That poor SS. What a debacle.

Now, trying to use those three months to predict the entire year then yes, it would be a problem. But I don't see anyone projecting Camaro sales based solely on January, February, and March sales. In fact, I don't see any specific pedictions be made at all. Only general ones, and even those are based on the new generation coming not on winter.
Yeah weather should affect them all the same.

Not really, selling according to GM's expectations.

The new Mustang does look cool.

The current Camaro has been around for a while, and personally, I feel that the Camaro's restyling took away instead of adding attractiveness.

Remember when the 5th gen first came out with its totally badass design and dominated sales for years?

It's good to see that there is a healthy competition and that Ford can pull it off too.

Live by the sword, die by the sword. The performance of these cars aren't very drastically apart. The design on the other hand...

Kudos to Chrysler as well, Challenger looked real good in the movie Nightcrawler.

I feel somewhat guilty in thinking that the regular Camaros(not ZL1 or Z28) have lost its appeal and I would actually prefer the new Mustang.

I get what you're saying. I see the new Mustangs everyday and it doesn't excite me nor wow me. I have often confused them with the Fusion from the front. They have no cajones! Maybe when the GT350 hit the road then it may turn my head.

I don't think that Dodge at this point actually sees the Challenger as a direct competitor to either the Mustang or the Camaro.

Looks like the Mustang who some people on here hate so much was the right car for this market and this time as they moved over 12,000 units last month.

Also much of Chevys car line up is pretty old, at the end of this year we will have a new Malibu, a new Camaro, a new Spark, a new Sonic, and a new Cruze.

The current Malibu isn't that old, however was just never well recieved and the new Impala isn't selling 70% fleet like the old one was. Not to say that everything is perfect with their line up however they have old cars which will be replaced in the coming months.

It changed so little, I doubt there was any positive sales impact in the 1st place. I kinda don't think they intended for one, but hoped to hold sales as the 6th gen was readied.

Sour? You're a true fan. Most people aren't. Don't get me wrong. I think it's a beautiful car. Fact is though, most people simply aren't very attracted to this kind of car in a "I'm going to buy one" sense.

Hopefully GM doesn't turn them into something like Ford accomplished in turning the Mustang into the Mazda muscle mobile. I guess if you are a Ford fan you don't notice.
I'm positive you're in the very small minority there... after all, Mustang just sold nearly 13,000 units for the month. I'm not terribly enthralled w/ it and like the last version better insofar as looks. Still, it clearly appeals to many.

As far as a Challenger not impressed by anything Dodge ever made.
I'm not much of a Dodge fan, but the Challenger, I think is the best looking of the 3 and it's not even a remotely close contest. I also think most people in "our world" feel the same. Rarely does anyone say anything negative about the looks of the Challenger. I don't want one much, but it isn't about looks for me. It's practicality vs price

I'm pretty sure European and Chinese sales aren't included.

Doesn't look like pointing out the truth w/o arguing in the least ... is defending, let alone at all costs. Maybe I missed something, but you're just unnecessarily rude. Not liking the Mustang may be normal on this site, but does hatred toward other people have to be included. i think not, how about you?

Like I said in an earlier thread, Mustang has taken this fight to a new level, they are not fooling around this time. The 2016 Camaro have to really be awesome.
