Ford Mustang sales suffered a hard drop of 35.4 percent from May last year, while the Chevrolet Camaro topped all others in muscle car sales this May. Third in sales was the Dodge Challenger, seeing a lesser decrease of 10.7 percent from last year.
Chevy moved 520 more units this May from last, while the Mustang sold 3,618 less this May. The Dodge Challenger saw a decrease of 410 units.
Ford Mustang sales last month may have seen the most drastic change in sales, but Octavio Navarro, a Ford Spokesman, says “…calendar year-to-date sales were only down 2.8 percent,… our focus, in combinations with our other cars, is to continue to grow our car market share.”. There has been no indication at this point whether the company plans on ramping up marketing efforts for the Mustang.

Overall for May, the highest selling were the gas-friendly cars like the Chevy Cruze and Ford Focus, Edmunds.com reports “High gas prices and production issues following the March earthquakes in Japan combined to create a ripe environment for domestic small cars to thrive,”.
