    Haven't seen the numbers here yet, so here they are (% = compared to Q1 2018):

    Mustang 16,917 (-11.7%)
    Challenger 13,431 (-24%)
    Camaro 12,083 (+2.5%)


    The numbers are copied from "the other forum" :angel:

    Using Ace's numbers and data from: http://carsalesbase.com/us-car-sales-data/ford/ford-mustang/
    for Mustang and Challenger monthly numbers.
    I built this monthly chart for the quarter.

    __________________JAN_________FEB______MAR______Total
    Camaro_________4027_______4028_____4028______12083 (All I could do is divide Camaro Q1 total by 3)
    Challenger_____3230_______3639______6562 _____13431
    Mustang________5420_______4025_____7472______16917

    So what does it say? It says the polar vortex in Jan/Feb suppressed muscle car sales.
    It says Mustang 1, Challenger 2, Camaro 3. It says that March madness stimulated cars sales.
    That's about it.
    There is a forum the mods closed about the V6 Mustang. Some like it, some don't,
    but if there was that third engine option I think Mustang would be over 20,000 units sold.

    Not having a N/A V-6 option does hurt sales.

    Seeing Camaro sales go up from last year is interesting - a pretty good showing compared to previous years, even for still being in 3rd place.

    For me March Madness was the 0% / 72 month financing. Could not pass the "free" money.

    Good observation. I think the 2019 Camaro front end refresh has something to do with that.
    The more it looks like a Mustang the better it sells

    Did my part for March, had to go to MO from MN and that dealer had to get it from Wichita, KS to get it. Velocity Blue, Auto, 401A and PP1 being a rare bird I guess.

    I’ve actually seen quite a few v6 Camaros lately. I’m not sure if sales to rental companies are within those numbers or not but I’m guessing that’s a big part of the camaros sales especially with the v6 looking better than the ss. As for challengers I don’t know how many of those I see a day. They’re selling like crazy.

    Agree! There is a negative stigma that goes along with turbo charged engines. I personally don't have problems with the current turbo's but because of many poor designs back in the day a legit stereotype on dependability was developed.

    I'm on my 3rd vehicle with a Ecoboost engine I've had no problems and plenty of power. I still have my Mustang and just traded my 96k miles Escape on a new Ranger Supercrew 4X4

    Sorry, I should of been more specific. By "back in the day" I ment 80's/early 90's and all makes not just ford. I personally would not hesitate to buy a FORD EcoBoost engine!

    Man, what's with all the Camaro hate. They are awesome cars, and I'm digging the 19 redesign.

    You are probably the only one... lol
    Did you forget what forum you're on?

    I think power train wise the Camaro is bad ass and I did like the front of the 16-18s, but they F'd them up now.
