And by making it affordable did they make it not profitable?I don't. Would be unfortunate but not surprising. They waited too long to make the car affordable.
Quite possibly, which is why it's unfortunate they waited too long because affordability wasn't built into it from the start. It was the only of the three that didn't require any special packages or handling options to drive like a bat out of hell from the start, also potentially adding to its high initial cost along with all the feature advantage it had over a base Mustang or Challenger. It wasn't an unjustified extra cost because when you added those packages and options to the Challenger and Mustang they spec'd out pretty evenly, just a bummer you couldn't get an affordable V-8 from the start. Half of all Mustang GT's in our national inventory are base models, not Premium package cars. And the Mustang is the only non-SUV that Ford is keeping aroundAnd by making it affordable did they make it not profitable?
Everyone loves to say the Camaro is the best out of the 3 pony cars. But maybe that doesn't translate to sales or profit that is acceptable. It sucks if it happens as it is one less competitor in that class.
You mean the one that trounced every competitor in its price class? Yeah, I remember that one.Good riddance! Fuckers charged too much for too long and alot of people bailed to the Mustang.
Remember the 75k 5th gen Z28 :hahano: :gtfoslap:
Im did so myself too in 2016 I couldnt find a base V8 8 speed Auto Camaro for under 45k.
Went to Ford got a Premium package 5.0 A6 car for 36,800 OTD.
Z28 was a badass car but sure in the fuck not for 75KYou mean the one that trounced every competitor in its price class? Yeah, I remember that one.
This is an interesting factHalf of all Mustang GT's in our national inventory are base models, not Premium package cars.
Dodge is still selling the fuck out of a 10+ year old chassis...if the sales aren't there for the camaro it's because of poor marketing and configurations (which can be addressed by GM), not lack of demand for affordable sports carsBut yea, it's not so much learning a lesson. If the sales aren't there, why keep something running...
This is the source that /Drive is usingOutlets are now publishing this all over FB. But that doesnt always mean its true.
The source above says THEIR source says it COULD happen but its not a done deal yet.
It seems most people I know or talk to don't own a Premium car. Some with the track package are still base cars. I think base cars with the Recaro seat option seems popular.Half of all Mustang GT's in our national inventory are base models, not Premium package cars.
