Dear ArabsGT followers, in this article, we will reveal the car who won first place as the best-selling American muscle car on the market during 2019, which ended a few days ago.
But before revealing this important information, we would like to remind you of our latest test-drive of this class of cars, which was presented to you by our colleague, Suhaib Shashaa, who test-drove 2020 Mustang Shelby GT 500, the most powerful and fastest Ford production car in history so far.
The car is powered by a supercharged 5.2-liter V8 engine that generates 760 hp and 847 Nm of torque so the that the new car can accelerate from 0 to 96 km / h in 3.3 seconds before reaching its top speed of 289 km / h.
Now let’s return to our topic, dear ArabGT followers, and talk about the ranking of American muscle car sales during the year 2019 from the highest to the lowest…
First place: Ford Mustang
Mustang cars maintained the lead, being the most selling car in this category, selling 72,489 copies last year, which represent a decrease of 4.4% compared to sales of this model in 2018 when Ford sold 75,842 Mustangs
The second place goes to the Dodge Challenger
For the second year in a row, Challenger cars occupied this position and captured it from the Camaro in the American muscle car category. In 2019, 60,997 copies of the Challenger were sold, recording a decrease of 9% compared to 66,716 cars sold in 2018.
The third and last place went to Chevrolet Camaro
Although the year 2018 witnessed a significant decrease in Camaro sales by 25% compared to 2017, the decline was less severe in 2019, as Chevrolet Camaro sales decreased by 5.3%, with 48,265 cars sold in 2019 compared to 50,963 in 2018.
It should be noted that the decrease in sales of American muscle cars comes along with a decrease in the sales of sports cars in general, as more consumers are buying crossovers, SUVs, and pickups.
