FCA US Reports January 2017 U.S. Sales

  • Ram Truck brand up 5 percent; pickup truck posts 4 percent increase
  • Three Jeep® brand vehicles record sales increases in January; Jeep Renegade sales up 52 percent
  • Jeep Grand Cherokee sales up 24 percent in January
  • Fiat 500 sales up 24 percent compared with same month a year ago

February 1, 2017 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -  FCA US LLC today reported U.S. sales of 152,218 units, an 11 percent decrease compared with sales in January 2016 (171,352 units).

In January, fleet sales of 42,868 units were down 31 percent year over year as FCA US continues its strategy of reducing its sales to the daily rental segment. Fleet sales represented 28 percent of total FCA US sales in January. FCA US retail sales of 109,350 units were flat for the month, and represented 72 percent of total January sales.

Ram Truck brand sales increased 5 percent in January, compared with the same month a year ago, as the pickup truck posted a 4 percent sales gain. Three Jeep® brand models recorded increases in January, led by a 52 percent increase in Jeep Renegade sales. Sales of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, the brand’s volume leader in January, were up 24 percent for the month. Sales of the Dodge Journey mid-size crossover were up 9 percent, while Fiat 500 sales grew 24 percent year over year.

Ram Truck Brand
Sales of the Ram pickup truck increased 4 percent in January, compared with the same month in 2016. In addition, the Ram ProMaster van turned in a strong 43 percent sales gain. Ram Truck brand sales were up 5 percent year over year in January. At the 2017 North American International Auto Show in January, the brand introduced a special edition of the popular Ram 1500 Rebel – the Rebel Black. The Ram Rebel Black special edition traces its origin to one of the truck brand’s fastest-selling off-road powerhouses, adapting dark features as a design component. The package is offered with all available Rebel colors, adding black wheels, brush guard and theme-matched all-black interior.

Jeep Brand
Three Jeep brand models posted sales increases in January, led by the Jeep Renegade and its 52 percent year-over-year sales gain. The Jeep Grand Cherokee – the brand’s volume leader for the month – recorded a 24 percent sales increase in January. The Jeep Wrangler logged a January increase as well. Last month, FCA US confirmed the addition of new models to the award-winning Jeep lineup – an all-new Jeep pickup truck and the storied Jeep Wagoneer and Jeep Grand Wagoneer. These actions are planned to be completed by 2020.

FIAT Brand
The Fiat 500 recorded a 24 percent sales increase in January compared with the same month a year ago. The Fiat 124 Spider was named “Best New Convertible” of 2017 by the experts at Cars.com. The all-new Spider delivers the ultimate Italian roadster experience with driving excitement, technology and safety combined with iconic Italian design.

Dodge Brand
Two Dodge brand vehicles recorded sales gains in January. The Dodge Journey mid-size crossover turned in a 9 percent increase, while Dodge Viper sales were up 89 percent. The Dodge brand announced in January that its new ultimate performance halo – the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon – will be unveiled during the New York International Auto Show week in April.

Chrysler Brand
Sales of the all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica – the most awarded minivan in 2016 – were up in its first month of year-over-year comparisons. Cars.com editors named the Pacifica the “Best of 2017” at their annual 2017 Best of Awards show hosted in Detroit during the North American International Auto Show. The Pacifica also was named the 2017 North American Utility Vehicle of the Year by a panel of automotive experts last month at the auto show. The award is unique and considered by many to be one of the world’s most prestigious based on its diverse mix of automotive journalists from the U.S. and Canada who serve as the voting jurors.

Alfa Romeo Brand
Alfa Romeo brand sales of 108 units were up 59 percent compared with the same month in 2016.

Maserati Brand
Maserati brand sales of 889 units were up 69 percent compared with the same month a year ago.

Alfa well on their way to taking over the world!!  Up to 70 Giulias and 38 4C's!  They'll hit that 400,000 target (or whatever it was) in no time!

And as soon as they bring out the full line of Dodges based on Alfas, Mopar-Fiat will be #1 car company. And get 90% market share!!! And of course, Plymouth is on the way back!

Oh wait, soon, they will "surprise everyone" with a new Fiat Tipo based Neon from Turkey! After all, there's "pent up demand for a new Neon"

Seriously, who will merge with them? More likely, "partners" are waiting for another Bankruptcy to grab Jeep and Ram.

It will be interesting to see how long they will be able to hold out. That company has nothing to save but Jeep and Ram, although I do think the Pacifica is nice for a van.

Ram Pacifica or Caravan would work.

 

The Chrysler name has been dragged through the mud and has either "old fart" or "BHPH special" image. Mopar-heads still claim it's a "luxury brand", yeah right. I predict the make will go the way of Rambler, De Soto and Edsel.

Ram was within 1,700 units of Silverado. 

 

To be fair, Ram is in Class 4 and 5 (like Ford F series) but Chevy is only Class 1-3.

 

It's a bit of apples and pears comparison. I wish they all provide class breakdowns. Since Ram is the class leading in Class 4 and 5, I'm guessing Chevy still leads Ram by significant margin in Class 1-3.

It's a good vehicle and would bring in new buyers and presumably profits, so I'm sure Jeep would like it regardless of what their fans think.

Alfa had 2 ads in the superbowl. What a bad move! They have to increase their sales tenfold just to pay for the ad!
