Mustang Gallops Ahead of Competition in 2015 Sales Race

Mustang Gallops Ahead of Competition in 2015 Sales Race

WESTLAND, Mich.– The Chevrolet Camaro has held the top-sales position in its segment for the last six years, but that hasn’t deterred pony car enthusiasts from purchasing the 2015 Ford Mustang.

After a sales increase of 55 percent this year the Mustang galloped ahead of competition in the 2015 sales race, pulling ahead of the Chevy Camaro and the Dodge Challenger.

Ford sold 56,571 Mustangs through May 2015, compared to 33,938 Camaro sales and 30,166 Challenger sales, according to Autodata Corp. The 2015 Mustang’s high sales can be attributed to its 50th-anniversary redesign and the 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine that equips it with 310 horsepower and helps it achieve 32 miles per gallon on the highway.

What might surprise you is who the big buyers are who helped the Mustang gallop ahead of competition in the 2015 sales race. According to Ford, 35 percent of Mustang buyers this year were millennials, many of whom reside in Southern California where Mustang sales are up 117 percent.

Ford expects the Mustang to have a 40 percent sales increase for June, based on the overall increase in sales this year, which would bring the pony car even closer to being its segment’s best seller for the first time in six years.

While the Mustang may have the lead in sales, some speculate the 2016 Camaro and its convertible counterpart, set to debut in spring 2016, could make for rocky competition. However, we think you should stay confident that Ford’s pony will keep its lead in this race– they didn’t name it the Mustang for nothing!
