The Ford Mustang continued to dominate pony car sales charts in April, with nearly as many cars sold as its two competitors combined.
For the month, Ford sold 13,144 Mustangs, an increase of 81.5 percent over April 2014. Year-to-date sales hit 42,955, a 60 percent increase.
The Chevrolet Camaro kept its hold on second place despite a nearly 24 percent drop over April 2014. 6,909 Camaros were sold for the month, with 24,229 sold for the year, a 15 percent decrease.
Dodge’s Challenger saw its sales jump 32 percent in April to 6,771 and 41 percent for the year to 22,728.
Ford announced updates and new models of the new-for-2015 Mustang for the upcoming model year, including the Shelby GT350 and GT350R and special packages like the California Special Package, the Black Accent Package and the Pony Package for the turbo four-cylinder car. Also, all 2016 Mustangs will have hood mounted turn signals as an homage to the 1967 Mustang.
For the Challenger, Dodge has brought back the “shaker” hoods on the R/T, R/T Plus, and Scat Pack models, which are all available in Shaker versions.
The Chevrolet Camaro is due for a replacement in 2016. The new Chevy pony car will be unveiled at a special event at 4 pm Eastern time on May 16 in Detroit. TFLcar will be there to provide full coverage of the event.
