Reasons Why 2017 Chevrolet Camaro Loses Once Again To Challenger

By  | 

No one likes to come in second place and more so when the first place goes to what was considered to be a dark horse. However this is exactly what the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro has had to deal with when it went up against the Dodge Challenger for the second month running in 2016.

The sales of the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro are in fact still ahead of those of the Dodge Challenger when you go on the yearly sales to date. The Camaro has sold 36, 834 units while the Challenger 34, 607 units.

On saying this if the GM does continue to lose its foothold in sales and the Challenger continues in its uphill climb, things might turn out differently.

Neither the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro nor the Challenger are going to stand a chance of beating the sales of another more popular pony, the Ford Mustang. At the end of June it had sold 62, 925 units.

The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro enjoyed June sales of 4, 969 and the Challenger 5, 479, both having declining sales compared to the same month last year.

People haven’t been too happy with the visibility and room in the cabin of the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro, despite it being more capable on the tracks than the Mustang. It just doesn’t offer a daily drive that is comfortable and this could be one of its biggest let-downs.

    I think the poor sales of the 2016 Camaro are a small-scale American tragedy that demonstrates why we can’t have nice things. The Mustang is a nice car, it has a roomier interior, and it’s fun to drive, but it gets kicked to the curb by the 2016 Camaro in any sort of performance test.

    The Challenger OTOH is the meandering motorized lounge seat of muscle cars. It felt and handled like a slightly peppier version of my Mom’s old mid-90s Buick Riviera. I guess if I had a problem keeping it in my pants and a huge monthly child support bill, I might see this as the right compromise between plodding sedan and high-stakes muscle car. But then why not go all the way this American dream and buy the Charger instead?

    If I had to park my car daily in the compact spots of some dreary EvilCorp tower, I might prefer the mustang. It’s cheaper too.

    But when I want to have fun, my 2016 Camaro 2SS is the place to go and it remains so. Without blind spot indicators, I might have passed on it, but they’re there and they make all the difference. As for the interior, my 99 Z28 had no room in the backseat either. I wonder why they don’t sell a conversion kit to just convert the whole area to storage.
