Damn Ford be killing it:headbang:

Even more of a reason to mod the car in order to make it unique
Ha ha, so true! Selling like crazy, down approx. 400 from the same month last year.

Charger is in at 6412, a healthy number for them but ~350 below the same month last year.

Still no number from Chevrolet, maybe they are hiding the numbers behind a cabinet somewhere, hoping that no-one will notice. :ford:

Camaro still lagging at 7,457 units, up 7.5% from last April. At the same time last year, the April 2015 Mustang sales (S550) were up 81% over April 2014 (S197).

Interesting statistics.

I imagine that Camaro's sales will start approaching Mustang's, just don't know when.

I thought for sure all those turbo-4 Camaro buyers would have made up all the difference now that all the trims are available from GM. I guess those April fleet sales for Ford once again account for the margin.

here is a chart of the sales by the month, for the ~10m prior to Gen6 release and months following Gen6 release. The vertical red line marks the first month that volumes start showing up on the lot. Clearly the Mustang showed a much larger jump in sales, where the Camaro is slowly ramping up.

Soon we will hear about all the people waiting for the ZL1 to come in 2017 and yada yada yada.

Then GM had the balls to raise the price for 2017 lol raise the roof to see out of GM not your prices.

The 6G Camaro is such a flop.

Don't worry, they've got a primed list of excuses, they've been revised already.

Now that the turbo 4 is on the lots, the excuse will be that not ENOUGH of them are on the lots.

They'll say "there is just not enough advertising out there"

"The convertibles are just now getting out there"

They keep setting the goal post further and further out as to when a comparison will be "valid". First it was "The turbo 4 isn't on the lots yet, you can't compare them", then "the convertibles aren't on the lots yet"...etc etc. I'm sure the next will be "you can't compare the sales since the Ford has the GT350 and the Camaro doesn't have the ZXX cars, when they're out then we'll see"

The diehards just cannot accept the Camaro isn't selling as well. HotlapZL1 actually tried to claim that the "real" sales numbers were less than 7,000 because "40% of Ford sales are fleet numbers" because apparently they don't teach logic and critical thinking in his area, he applied a flat 40% of Mustang sales to fleet.

If the canaro highest month sale equal to the mustang lowest month sale that still be good enough to keep camaro around. Camaro share almost every parts in gm part bin. So the cost of R&D for camaro are very low. GM making a killing on camaro.

Maybe, but with every new trim that is introduced, they speak to how much content has been changed from the base and/or SS. Creating the ZL1 was more than dropping a LT4 into the existing chassis. R&D is still required on the Camaro.

Is the profit to GM per car greater on the Camaro than it is for Ford on the Mustang? Maybe, no, probably, but there is no doubt in my mind GM is still concerned with market share in the segment. You're naive if you think otherwise.
