Muscle-car sales fight: Camaro outsells Mustang for second straight month, but Camaro fares worse in crash ratings!

While July was a pretty-hot month, its sales report on the new-born muscle-cars is even hotter!Back in 2009 June sales, the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro outsold the 2010 Ford Mustang and 2009 Dodge Challenger, for the first time since 1993. Well the trend goes on even in July sales.

Despite its 1rst and 2nd recalls on the new Camaro, customers still want to get all-around the Camaro. So for 2009 July sales, the Camaro outsells the new Mustang, for the second straight month in-a-row, at 7,113 Camaros sold while Ford sold 6,686 Mustangs, and of course, the Challenger falls behind. However, as some auto-analysist say, we should expect some changes in next month's sales!

Here's the deal, the all-new Camaro just got its NHTSA crash test rating; and guess what? The engineers at Chevrolet didn't put the Camaro through their safety routines, and therefore the new Camaro passed 4-stars of frontal-crash rating, while the Mustang and Challenger got the full 5-star mark. Now that is a big deal, since the Camaro is a very powerful car, and the visibilty is somewhat limited. So unless there's a talented driver behind the wheel, expect many people to crash the Camaro around.

So for next month, stay tuned for more reports on the latest Amercian muscle-car news.
