This week Ford released their sales figures for the month of January. Looks like the company sold slightly fewer Mustangs this January than they did in January 2012. Last month the company sold 3,608 Mustangs. The same time last year Ford sold 3,736 units. That's a decline of about 3.4 percent, year-over-year.
In all, Ford Motor Company's overall January U.S. sales of 166,501 total vehicles grew 22 percent year-over-year - with retail sales up 24 percent. Gains were made across the product lineup, with cars up 34 percent, utilities up 23 percent, and trucks up 11 percent for the month.
Meanwhile, Chevrolet sold 4,925 Camaros in January. In spite of remaining top dog in Pony Car Sales this January, the company sold fewer Camaros than last year. About 14 percent fewer, in January, to be exact.
And the Dodge Challenger, get this. The company actually sold 3,497 of the cars in January! Talk about a comeback out of left field! It's getting interesting out there!
