Not so ugly now is it?
For more about this story, 2015 Mustang Outsells Camaro in November please visit AutoGuide.com.Sales of the new Mustang are off to a good start.
Not surprisingly, the 2015 Ford Mustang has increased its sales by 62 percent compared to the same month last year, moving 8,728 units in November 2014. That means that Ford sold about double the amount of 2015 Mustangs as Chevy sold 2015 Camaros last month.
Ford also revealed people’s buying decisions when it comes to the new car. The American brand says that 52 percent of buyers are choosing the 435-hp 5.0-liter V8 in the Mustang GT. The other buyers are split right down the middle with 24 percent of customers choosing the 3.7-liter V6 and 24 percent taking the new turbocharged I-4 EcoBoost engine.
So far, 20,000 new Mustang fastback have been built and shipped around the U.S. and Canada and preparations to begin shipping overseas are now underway.
Anyone who thought the new Mustang wouldn't fly off the lots was crazy to begin with.
True.Anyone who thought the new Mustang wouldn't fly off the lots was crazy to begin with.
However, nothing unexpected here. Brand new Mustang versus old Camaro. We'll see how these two battle it out over the life cycle.
That part didn't surprise me at all. Camaro has always had a very loyal following, so there's always been a pent up demand for a pony car that wasn't a Mustang. So you bring a "new" car in to reignite the pony car wars and people jump all over it. It didn't hurt that the car was heavily advertised years before it came out, and was featured in the Transformers movie(s). I honestly would have been shocked if the Camaro didn't outsell the Mustang at least in its first year back. Beyond year 1, I can admit that I've been pleasantly surprised. The Mustang has outsold the Camaro/Firebird (combined) almost every year since day 1, so to see the 5th Gen, at this age, continue to outsell the Mustang is awesome.True.
What stands out to me in the "Pony Car Wars" historically is that the Camaro, a model that was discontinued for something like 7 or 8 years, came back and within a few months was outselling the Mustang. Even with a couple of "Refreshes" to the Mustang until this new one came out.
It's heavier and has the same drivetrain sans live rear.Over half are GT models. Impressive. But maybe because of pent up demand from enthsusiasts waiting for the car to come out.
Never thought it was ugly, that's too strong a word. But it doesn't look very good.
Thanks for the laughs and your right...Who is really surprised at this? The first major redo of the Mustang in ten years. It SHOULD sell.
There are still some '14s mixed in with that number though. Buddy just got a screaming deal on a GT Vert.
Agreed, the Hellcat phenomenon is amazing. Love that car!I think the hellcat halo casts all over the dodge lineup...
Best job as a halo launch I've ever seen....well done dodge....
Even better halo car than the viper.....strangely enough...
