Dodge Challenger Retains Its Best-Selling Muscle Car In America Crown!

Age Doesn't Matter For This Muscle Car...

As the current Dodge Challenger (LA) enters its final year of production, the aging muscle car continues to surprise critics. Once again the big Dodge coupe proved to be America’s favorite two-door muscle car out-selling the Ford Mustang and the Chevrolet Camaro.

The big Dodge coupe sold a total of 55,060 units in 2022, an increase of 1% year after year. 

In 2021, Challenger took on Ford’s Mustang in a tight sales battle that ran up until December. Challenger ended up taking the title by slim margins with 54,314 units sold versus Mustang’s 52,414 units. However, 2022 proved to be a different story with Mustang’s sales numbers totaling 47,566 units, a difference of 7,494 units. As for the other Detroit pony car, the Camaro was in a distant third for both years. Chevrolet sold 24,652 examples of the Camaro, up from 21,893 in 2021.

It should be worth mentioning that both the Mustang and Camaro are offered in either a hardtop coupe or a convertible, while the Challenger is strictly a hardtop. 

For 2023, Dodge has created an expedited ordering process for third-party convertible modifications through Drop Top Customs, the oldest convertible coachbuilder in the U.S. The new, integrated transportation ordering process allows customers to place third-party orders and pick up finished vehicles through participating Dodge dealers.

When looking at the Challenger versus its four-door stablemate: the Dodge Charger, the Charger outsold the Challenger by 25,014 units (or a total of 80,074 units). Challenger wasn’t far from taking the second place spot away from the Durango in the Dodge portfolio. Sales for the three-row SUVs totaled 55,433 units for 2022, down 16% from 2021.
