Performance enthusiasts often wonder which American muscle car is “the best,” a subject about which everyone seems to have a different opinion. No matter what camp you fall in, the numbers don’t lie: in June 2015, the Ford Mustang was by far and away the best-selling American muscle car categorized as a muscle car.

In fact, compared to its biggest rival, the Chevy Camaro, Mustang has historically been the stronger nameplate. It wasn’t until after the blockbuster Transformers film that Camaro returned en force with the fifth generation, but Mustang quickly caught up, going just about even with it in terms of sales in 2012 and 2013. By 2014, it had once again overtaken Camaro, and so far this year it has been absolutely crushing the competition.

In June, Mustang sold 11,719 units to Camaro’s 8,611 (and Challenger’s 6,845), beating its longtime rival despite the latter’s 11.5 percent sales improvement. That’s because the Mustang’s new 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine—a favorite at Cambridge Classic Ford—helped sales leap by a whopping 53.6 percent! So far this year, the Mustang is up by nearly 28,000 models sold compared to Camaro.

So which car is the best? The numbers tell it all! Let’s face it: deep down, you already knew, didn’t you? Go to Cambridge Classic Ford to see our inventory.

Ford Teaches Safe Driving Tips at Six Free Camps

Ford is committed to making the roads safer for everyone, and sometimes that means more than just making cars that ace crashworthiness evaluations. Another way to make the roads safer is to teach drivers how to avoid getting into accidents in the first place. As part of Ford’s commitment, teens will be able to learn about safety hands-on at six camps this summer as part of the Ford Driving Skills for Life (DSFL) program.

Camps in North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Wyoming, and Iowa will teach kids important safe driving tips that aren’t always covered in regular driver’s education, such as how to handle a vehicle on slippery pavement or how to react to an animal crossing the road. They’ll be taught hands-on about hazard recognition, space and speed management, and even how it feels to drive drunk using a special suit and goggles that blurs vision, slows movement, and impairs coordination.

The final step to becoming a safer driver is getting the most out of your driver’s education by driving a responsive car that still has your back should you slip up. What has been the weirdest road hazard you’ve encountered while driving? Tell us here at Cambridge Classic Ford!
