The Ford Mustang is America's favorite pony car again

You can’t keep an old horse down.

The Ford Mustang was the best-selling pony car in the first quarter of 2023 with a commanding lead after being outsold by the Dodge Challenger for the past two years.

Ford delivered 14,711 Mustangs through March, which was an increase of 5.2%, despite the fact that a redesiged version is set to launch this summer.

Challenger sales were also up, but by just 2% to 11,371 as it races toward the end of its 16-year production run this year.

Dodge is replacing the V8-powered versions of the muscle car with the all electric Charger Daytona SRT in 2024 and has not yet confirmed if it will ever offer another two-door internal combustion engine model.
