The Dodge Challenger has managed to outsell both the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro for the first time in at least seven years.
In June 2017, Dodge managed to sell a total of 6,605 Challengers, over 1,000 more than the number it sold in the same month 12 months ago. By comparison, 6,186 Ford Mustangs were sold last month while 4,691 Chevrolet Camaros found owners in June.
In terms of year-to-date sales, it isn’t surprising to learn that the Ford Mustang continues to lead the way with 44,608 units sold in the first half of the year. In a rather distant second sits the Chevrolet Camaro with 36,567 units, while nipping at its heels is the Dodge Challenger where 35,910 examples have been sold, Torque News reports.
Perhaps the most remarkable thing about current sales figures for the Challenger is that the car hasn’t been significantly updated since 2008. By comparison, the sixth-generation Ford Mustang hit the market for the 2015 model year, while the sixth-gen Camaro arrived for the 2016 model year.
