It's two strikes for the Ford Mustang as The Chevrolet Camaro grabbed the win on the most saleable muscle car in the car industry for September 2016. After beating the rival with its upgraded transmission feature, will the 'Stang be able to still overshadow the Bumblebee vehicle?

Back in 2014, the Chevrolet Camaro won over the Ford Mustang muscle car when it grabbed the title as the largest in monthly sales during October of that year. Ford was only able to sell 4,565 'Stang units which ended its reign over car sales against the Cam.

'Stang vs Cam Car Sales

As reported by Torque News, the Chevrolet Camaro has been dominating car sales for the third time this year, kicking Ford Mustang off its winning streak.
