    Just when you think GM is doing well, Chevy comes in and ruins the whole party.  Disappointing.

    FCA is a house of cards being held up by Ram trucks.  Even Jeep is down, and Fiat and Alfa are way down on tiny volume to begin with Chrysler is down on low volume, Dodge way down on moderate volume.

    You just like to pick on FCA.  They sell more Jeeps than Volkswagen and Audi combined. They sell more than all of Hyundai. They sell more than all of Kia.  They're moving a lot of metal. Jeep alone sells about 50% of the entire Toyota brand. 

    They have volume now but Jeep has been down almost every month the past year or so.  And the market they compete in is getting more and more flooded.   I think Jeep has great brand image and styling, but the nuts and bolts of their product is still FCA parts bin which means lackluster interiors and poor reliability.  Jeep is right down there at the bottom of reliability ratings with Alfa Romeo, Fiat and Dodge.  

    Hyundai and Kia are bringing a ton of SUVs that look pretty good online, and their quality and reliability is really good, they are going to steal sales off Jeep all day long.  Ford has 1 or 2 Bronco's coming, GM has more SUVs coming, although most of these seem like boring Asian designs.  VW could step up their SUV game, their stuff looks boring and isn't that nice inside for what you are paying.

    That just means that 2018 was a great year for them (and it was).  But look at all the red on that ticker, lots of brands are struggling right now... the market as a whole is down something like 3% for the year. 

    Jeep has 4 new or updated models coming out over the next 2 years. And that's just the ones we know about. I think they'll be just fine.

    Agreed. Jeep’s not going anywhere. Get the feeling that nice Jeep truck will be a winner....

    Just like everyone else though, they are going to have to add the discounts too.....

    Still predicting the coming recession?  I still see it too, but the economy is defying the indicators for now.

    Call us back in one year, then we can talk.  The real question is why Chevrolet sales fell off a cliff.  Apparently, RAM trucks are now outselling Chevy trucks.  HOW did that happen?

    Yep, Silverado would be a distant 3rd place to the F150 and Ram. I'd really have to drive and fiddle around with the Ram and F150 to decide which I'd buy(assuming both are optioned and priced the sam, which is pretty difficult in itself to find).

    Sorry, didn’t mean their stuff was cheap. I meant as having both better deals and smarter priced stuff.....

    I think to finance the EV push, putting money on the hood to move metal is a smart move to keep things going in the short term.

    It's smart for the consumer of course, but for OEMs already losing thousands per unit- it makes little sense. 
    1. Selling more of a money-losing product doesn't help the OEM's books.
    2. Creating an expectation that 'big discounts' are the norm creates downward pressure on future (hopefully profitable) ATPs.
    The only thing that is relatively 'safe' in this regard is tax credits- most people don't qualify for the full amount (but it sounds good) and the fact that it's Gov't-issued takes the control of that discount out of the OEM's hands.

    Actually to be technically correct, VW and Audi don't make or sell any Jeeps (Horse ducks from wrench thrown from Pittsburgh...)....but yes you are correct.

    Rail and Semi traffic is down, the indicators are there. Conflict with Iran and the middle east that is self induced from Washington won't help matters either. markets like stability.

    I love the F series....even being down on ford, I just love the F series.

    Hyundai and KIA do have their A game on, I will sport you that one at least.

    Yup, isn't that insane?  It is the simplest constructed vehicle and it is priced to the moon.  Fantastic jobs report just out, eh?

      Back in February, Amazon helped Rivian by investing $700 million into the company. Now Amazon is helping further with one first big order.  Amazon is ordering 100,000 vans to be delivered by 2024. The first deliveries should start in 2021 and prototypes will likely be seen next year.  At that rate of production, Rivian would immediately start outselling the Nissan NV and NV200 combined.  The van is exclusive to the Amazon partnership and Rivian says it will not delay any of the R1T or R1S deliveries as it is being built on a separate assembly line at the Normal IL. facility. 
      Rivian used a skateboard chassis for their R1T and R1S, so building a van body (R1V?) over top of the skateboard shouldn't be too hard of a task. The R1T has a claimed range of up to 400 miles on a single charge and being capable of getting to an 80 percent charge inside of an hour. 
      Amazon's use for the vans is clear. They have committed to reaching the goals of the United Nations Paris Agreement 10 years early with 80% of their energy use being renewable by 2024 and 100% by 2030.

      Volvo Cars reported a solid sales performance in August, with global volumes up 10.2 per cent compared with the same period last year.
        
      Total sales during the month reached 47,796 cars, as all regions of US, China and Europe reported a volume growth in August.
        
      In the January to August period, Volvo Cars’ total sales reached 443,168 cars, up 7.6 per cent compared with the same period last year.
        
      Strong demand for Volvo’s award winning SUVs led by the XC60, and followed by the XC40 and the XC90, supported the sales performance in August. The company’s latest models like the US-built S60 sedan, V60 estate and V60 Cross Country also contributed to the increased volumes.
        
      European sales during the month reached 16,639 cars, up 11.5 per cent compared with the same period last year. Volvo’s top three markets in the region, Sweden, United Kingdom and Germany reported growth of 29.4 per cent, 30.8 per cent and 8.6 per cent respectively in August, compared with the same period last year. The XC60 and the XC40 were the highest selling models in the region during the month.
        
      US sales in August stood at 9,194 cars, up 2.5 per cent compared with the same period last year. XC90 was the top selling model in the region during the month, followed by the XC60.
       
       Sales in China last month reached 14,212 cars, up 24.8 per cent, compared with the same period last year. The strong performance came on the back of continued high demand for the locally produced XC60 and the S90.

    • ^^^ Clearing out the 2019s for the 2020s to arrive. 
    • I'd rather see what the car does at half throttle, but the manufacturers have already found a cheat for that. 
    • Nice! Super Cruise is awesome, tried it driving a CT6 Platinum I had for Cadillac's 24 hr. test drive. It's pretty accurate and a camera on top of the steering column watches your eyes too "see" if you're paying attention. With dark sunglasses on I tested it by looking at my passenger without moving my head and within 5 or 6 seconds it started beeping and flashing lights in the steering wheel and in the head-up display to alert me, so it saw the whites of my eyes through the sunglasses that's pretty badass really. Kinda like a backseat driver though haha! It stays in the lane really well and isn't jerky or slow to react or too fast to react if someone changes lanes in front of you and that was First Gen. SuperCruise early last year. Second Gen. SC for 2020 is suppose to be much more intelligent too. Pretty soon we'll be having conversations with our cars as we drive, something good to vent our frustrations to that doesn't get overemotional 😆
    • Got this cadillac marketing flyer in the mail today. Everything is 0% interest or some.serious cash on the hood on every model they sell. Wow, $11,000 off an Escalade. 
    • OK,  30 to 40 years ago the SOHC and DOHC were screaming Sewing machine engines with no go and sucked other than just a somewhat reliable nature in generic crappy compact auto's. They got a perception of reliable as they pushed service intervals out to 100,000 miles versus US OEMs stuck with stupid 30,000 mile intervals into the late 90's and sadly most auto owners are lazy with maintenance as such, US auto's would stop running when you failed to do the 30K tuneups and 3K oil changes. Plus most asian autos were manual everything where US was pushing electric everything. US auto's could survive a long life if people only followed the maintenance manual.  Sadly I doubt many on this forum have even read their own current owners manual. Being OCD, I have read everyone of my auto's I own and my 1994 GMC Suburban, the oldest car I own and bought new still out performs most current asian SUV/trucks. Take my GMC Suburban SLE over anything Asian or german that is sold today.
