As I have said before history has a way of repeating itself and this year is no different as Ford Mustang sales took a nose dive in July. Mustang sales were so bad for the month of July, they were off nearly 3,500 units from the previous month. Why the big drop off, well its hard to say but my best guess would be less incentives and rebates along with a dwindling supply of Mustangs as Ford gets ready for the next generation 2015 Mustang. Keep reading for a complete breakdown on the numbers.
Sales of the Ford Mustang for July of 2013 were 5,768 compared to 7,371 from July of 2012 showing a 21.7% decrease in sales from the previous year. Year to date Mustang sales are 48,879 compared to 55,995 for 2013, which is a 12.7% decrease over the previous year.
Month to Month sales were down sharply as June 2013 sales were 9,243 compared to July 2013 sales of 5,768 which is a 38% decrease.

It’s crazy that the Camaro sells more, considering it’s incredibly ugly. Good to see the Chally slightly keeping up.
People probably waiting for newer mustangs to come out, giving that the mustang has looked the same for so many years and spy shots of newer ones are coming out more and more. If you buy a mustang now, might as well be a used 2009+ one.
