Dodge Challenger beats Ford Mustang for sales

Dodge Challenger beats Ford Mustang for sales

Over in the states the iconic Ford Mustang has been a driving force in the sales department for a long time. That changed last month when Ford’s iconic pony car has been outsold by the Dodge Challenger by 293 units in February, as the Dodge coupe racked up 3,283 sales during the month. The Challenger’s February victory could be a sign of things to come for the Mustang, as the Blue Oval’s most recognisable vehicle is set to get bombarded with more competition coming from the 2010 Camaro. The Camaro, which goes into regular production on March 16, already has over 10,000 pre-orders waiting.

Don’t rule out the Mustang yet, as the pony car is getting a major makeover shortly. In fact, one reason the Challenger defeated the Mustang in February might be that many potential buyers are waiting for the 2010 model. Automakers also slow production before retooling for a new model, meaning there are fewer 2009 Mustangs from which to choose. The pony car wars are set to continue.
