Camaro squashed Mustang in August 2010 sales

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 3, 2010

As you may know already, the Ford Mustang outsold rival Chevrolet Camaro in July by only the units, but it appears that August was a bad month for FoMoCo as the Camaro squashed the Mustang: 6,321 units compared to 5,570.

And this is not all, as more significant is calendar year to date, with 60,000 Camaro sales compared to 53,000 Mustang sales. "Car shoppers continue to be excited about the Camaro, which has now been on the market over a year.

As a result, Camaro has taken the lead in the segment with virtually no incentives," said spokesman Monte Doran. The bad news for Ford is that the Camaro currently has no convertible versions, as this will be introduced next year, which means that the sales are set to increase significantly when the new version will be introduced.

Still, Ford’s Mustang received two new engines for the 2011 model year, and analysts are expecting to help it gain some customers. "Camaro is currently only available as a coupe. We expect sales to grow when the convertible is introduced early next year," Doran says.

The 2010 Chevrolet Camaro, according to Chevrolet General Manager and General Motors (GM) Company Vice President Ed Peper, is built with strong performance, exceptional technology, and premium comfort, making it a modern vehicle perfect for all generations.

It is reminiscent of the Chevrolet Camaro's legacy through the years paired with modern styling. The vehicle, made with the new rear-wheel-drive passenger car platform, upholds GM's global vehicle development and process.

Australian and American production teams of GM were responsible for the original concept of the new Chevrolet Camaro. The car validation was held in different parts of the world. Meanwhile, assembly took place in the company's trusted plant in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada.

2010 Chevrolet Camaro bears a design reminiscent of the original concept as it honors the pilot models produced around the late 1960s. The 190.40-inch or 4,836-mm long, 75.50-in or 1,918-mm wide, and 54.20-inch or 1,376-mm high two-door vehicle is incorporated with a 112.30-inch or 2,852-mm wheelbase.
