Report: Dodge Challenger outsells Ford Mustang last month
The dream has come true to Dodge. According to Febuary's sales report, the Dodge Challenger outsold the Ford's iconic Mustang, which is the fastest selling car in history yet, by 293 units. So with a good advertising campaign, the Dodge coupe racked up 3,283 sales during a very challenging month. So it's now officially recognized, the Dodge Challenger beat the Ford Mustang for this month.
Sadly however, Dodge won't be having a happy ending dream. Because, the Chevrolet Camaro is going into regular production on this March the 16th, and already has over 10,000 pre-orders on the books. The Mustang won't be left over too. Sales for the 'Stang have been low since everyone is waiting for the all-new 2010 Mustang.
Since the whole motoring and media press are falling in-love with the heavily-advertised Camaro, and the Americans favoring the legendary Mustang as the flag-ship muscle car, it seems the Challenger doesn't have a chance in out selling both its rivals in the future. But, it's always to the Challenger as the more special muscle car.
