OK—it’s only one month. But it was a good first month for the new Ford Mustang.
After the first full month of sales, the 2015 Ford Mustang has reclaimed the title of America’s top-selling pony car. According to Autoblog and TheDetroitBureau.com, Ford Motor Co. moved 8,728 Mustangs in November, up 62 percent from November 2013. Last month was the best November for Mustang sales since 2006, Ford reported. Chevrolet shipped 4,385 Camaros in November, down 13.5 percent from last year.
Ford is pleased with the new Mustang’s sales so far. Autoblog reported that Ford’s product development director Raj Nair hinted to TheDetroitBureau that Ford might unveil a new performance version of the Mustang at January’s North American Auto Show, and that the car is rumored to be more powerful than the previously announced Shelby Mustang GT350R.
Overall, the Chevy Camaro has outsold the Ford Mustang for the entirety of 2014, but Ford will try to overtake it this month.
Chevy has already announced plans to introduce the sixth-generation Camaro. Production could begin as early as late 2015, the Autoblog story said.
