Mustang Outsells Muscle Car Competitors
2015 Mustang sales are set to hit six figures for the first time since 2007, leaving the Challenger and Camaro in Ford's wake.

As of June, 2015, 68,290 Mustangs have been sold, putting Ford on target for breaking six-figure sales in 2015 for the first time since 2007.
Ford officially responded to the sales surge, saying, “Year-to-date, Mustang sales are up 55%, with a 116% increase in southern California, America’s largest sports car market. The 2.3L EcoBoost engine is now that market’s best-selling Mustang engine.” The EcoBoost engine is brand new for the 2015 model year, giving drivers a fuel-efficient Mustang that doesn't compromise on power (it's rated at 310 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque yet earns 31 highway mpg).
Drivers seeking more classic, naturally aspirated engines can find a standard 3.7L V6 with 300 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque, earning 28 highway mpg as well as the Mustang GT's 5.0L V8 with 435 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque.
The key to the Mustang's success over the Camaro and the Challenger is a simple one: it appeals to all generations. The new turbocharged engine and modern styling makes the pony car a hit with the Millennials while Baby Boomers and Generation X can enjoy some of the old muscle car flair that comes with a traditional V6 or V8 engine and some of the design throwbacks to the Mustangs of old.
