You hear a lot about the Ford Mustang and the Chevy Camaro rivalry, but not as much about the Dodge Challenger. Well, now the Challenger clears its throat and announces its presence with a 42% year-over-year sales growth in March 2013. This is while the leading Camaro and second place Mustang both experience double-digit declines. This is especially impressive given that Dodge still does not offer a convertible version of the Challenger, while the other two have them.
