2021 Mustang and 2021 Challenger both outsold the 2021 Camaro by 2-to-1 in Q1
Ford and Dodge are absolutely dominating the muscle car market right now, leaving GM in their rear-view mirrors.
There's nothing quite like American muscle cars, because they effectively compete in a league of their own. The Big Three have been fine tuning their purebred, quarter-mile at a time, street machines for decades, and the latest crop are some of the latest technology thrown at them, all in the name of burning rubber and being THAT much better than the other two. When Chevy unveiled the Camaro for the 1967 model year, the proclaimed that a Camaro was a vicious animal that eats Mustangs. Fast forward to the present, and the current Camaro resembles Thor in Avengers: Endgame, it really let itself go.
The current Camaro sold a measly 7,089 units in the first quarter of 2021. For reference, the C8 Corvette has sold 6,611 units, which probably explains where a few of the top-dollar Camaro buyers ended up. Still, that number is completely trounced by GM's cross-town rivals. Starting with Ford, the Mustang sold 17,274 units, and no those don't count the Mach-E. Ford retains the best-selling crown out of the three, but Dodge isn't too far behind. Even though the Challenger has not been redesigned since 2016, it has enjoyed a long list of special editions and upgrades that keep buyers in the dealership, and it shows because Dodge managed to sell 15,096 units for in the first quarter of 2021.
So to recap, the Camaro, which starts $2,000 cheaper than the Mustang and $3,000 cheaper than the Challenger, offers four different engines, and manual transmissions on all of its trims, has managed to be outsold by both of its rivals. Outsold is an understatement, it's gotten destroyed by its rivals, with both the Mustang and Challenger outselling the more than Camaro 2:1. There's no opinion in that either, that's the data talking.
