Hard to believe there's only two months left in the year. Last week Ford released their sales figures for the month of October. The company reported they'd sold 7.9 percent fewer Mustangs this October than October of 2010. In all, Ford sold 4,898 Mustangs in October. In October of 2010 they sold 5,317.
How's it looking for the year as a whole? Well, for a while it looked like the Mustang might just beat out last year's sales figures. At the end of October it was still pretty close, with sales this year trailing last by only 4.1 percent. This year Ford has sold 61,516. Last year at this time they'd sold 64,171.
As for the competition, Camaro sales continue to shine. In October, the company sold 6,119 Camaros. That's a 22 percent increase compared to last October. In all, Chevrolet has sold 76,368 Camaros this year.
