At the end of 2019, sales figures for the top three American muscle cars are down, but the Chevy Camaro has suffered the most, behind the Dodge Challenger by more than 12,000 units. The Ford Mustang led this race, of course, with Dodge and Chevy fighting for space on its rear view mirror.
While we can only hope for the best for the Camaro, the results are not encouraging because GM authority discovered. In the United States, residents bought less Camaro in the second quarter of 2020 than in the second quarter of 2019, with a tank of 46.31%, as the publication reports.
This is not a surprise at all, given the negative effects of the coronavirus pandemic on production and deliveries. However, given that all other U.S.-based automakers suffered the same fate during the health crisis, it’s safe to say that the Camaro just didn’t sell well compared to the Challenger and Mustang.
It should be noted that the Mustang recorded a 27.32% drop in sales in Q2 2020, while the Challenger sold 35.16% less during the same period – both compared to their figures Q2 2019 sales.
At this rate, the Camaro could follow behind the Challenger again by the end of 2020, making it the third year in which the muscle car Dodge has surpassed the Golden Bow Tie in this segment.
Last year there was a report on the disappearance of the Camaro after the end of production of its current generation in 2023. GM refused to confirm these reports in an official statement and was rather optimistic for the future of the muscle car.

But with the Camaro continuing its dismal sales performance, it wouldn’t be too far to assume that, yes, it will likely hit the ax. We hope for the best, but then again, if that happens, we won’t be surprised at all.
