    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?

      ROCKLEIGH, N.J. (July 2, 2019) - Volvo Car USA LLC, (VCUSA) reported U.S. sales of 9,934 vehicles for the month of June, an increase of 0.7 percent from the same period last year. Year-to-date VCUSA has sold 50,120 vehicles, an increase of 5.2 percent from the previous year.
       
      “The first half of 2019 was Volvo’s best U.S. performance in 12 years. June was a great month, topping a monthly record set back in June 2006.” said Anders Gustafsson, President and CEO, Volvo Car USA & Senior Vice President Americas.
       
      The XC90 was popular in June, posting the best sales month of 2019 at 3,475 cars sold, a 7.6 percent increase versus June 2018. The S60 and V60 saw the largest year-over-year gains, with S60 growing 184 percent and V60 growing 113 percent.
       
      The America’s region, which includes the United States, Canada and Latin America, also showed growth in June. Sales for the entire region were up 1.9 percent for the month; posting a 6.3 percent year-over-year gain.
       
      “The first half of 2019 showed great momentum for sales and fantastic progress on new services for customers.” Added Gustafsson. “Tow for Life and Accident Advisor joined our Volvo Lifetime Replacement Parts & Labor Warranty earlier this year. These services are designed to make life less complicated for our customers and have shown strong early success.”
