    There is a lot of red this month, mostly at FCA.

    More red at Benz than at FCA.

    They were up 0.4%.  At least they aren't down 34% like Alfa Romeo, or down 26% like Chrysler or down 7% like Jeep in an SUV market and Jeep is down 7% for the year as the SUV market is just getting flooded with entries.

    FCA was up for the month while Benz was down. FCA is also only down 3% for the year while Mercedes is down 8%. Not sure how you paint that as a rosy picture. 

     

    I do agree about Alfa though. It is just a joke in automotive clown shoes at this point and perfectly illustrates the money spent on it by FCA was money wasted.

    Neither FIAT nor Alfa Romeo should be sold here.  They belong in Europe since neither can compete here.  Maybe if that Renault merger with FCA goes through, someone will have the wisdom to discontinue FIAT and Alfa Romeo in North America.

    I agree 100%. Both were garbage forty years ago and they clearly have not improved upon that reputation.

    Funny anecdote, for some reason I've seen a 1/2 dozen Alfa Romeos (4 Giulias and 2 Stelvios) in the last week.  The Giulia Quadrafiglio does look great in dark blue.

    Single market brands have a hard time.  That is a problem FCA has.  Alfa and Fiat are stronger in the USA than Chrysler and Dodge are outside of North America.  When you have regional brands, it is hard to stay competitive.  Same problem with Renault, another regional company, if they merge all this together, they need to get a "One Ford" type plan where they have 1 car sold all over the world, maybe under different brand names.

      U.S. MODEL HIGHLIGHTS
       
      Land Rover
      For the month of July, the Land Rover brand sold 6,456 units, an increase of four percent compared to 6,209 in July 2018. Land Rover is up 3 percent for the year driven by sales of the Range Rover lineup.

      The Land Rover Discovery and Discovery Sport – bring new levels of sophistication, desirability, capability and versatility to the Discovery family. With variable five- and seven-passenger seating options in both the compact Discovery Sport and full-size Discovery, this family of vehicles features the latest connectivity technologies, a variety of innovative storage solutions and the same on-/off-road capability Land Rover is best known for.
       
      The 2020 Range Rover Evoque is a sophisticated evolution of the original model that pioneered the luxury compact SUV market. The second generation Range Rover Evoque offers anew 48-volt 296hp mild-hybrid (MHEV) powertrain alongside a 246hp Ingenium four-cylinder gasoline engine. For 20MY, the Range Rover Evoque also offersgroundbreaking off-road technologies like the optional segment first ‘ClearSight Ground View’ technology, part of the optional 360 Surround Camera system, and optional ‘ClearSight Rear View Mirror’3,4.
       
      Bringing a new dimension of modernity and elegance to the Range Rover family, the 2019 Range Rover Velar is designed to fill the white space between the Range Rover Evoque and Range Rover Sport; offering levels of luxury, refinement and all-terrain capability never before seen in the mid-size SUV segment.
       
      For 20MY the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport feature all-new mild-hybrid (MHEV) inline six-cylinder Ingenium gas engine, offered in 355hp and 395hp outputs and new plug-in hybrid (PHEV) P400e powertrain options.

      With the addition of the Jaguar E-PACE and the battery electric I-PACE, the New Generation of Jaguar lineup expands to seven models for the first time in the brand’s storied history, while new model derivatives like the Jaguar F-PACE SVR and the XF Sportbrake Prestige diversify the portfolio offering customers greater choice.
       
      For 2019 the Jaguar ‘PACE’ family of SUVs and crossovers has expanded since the debut of the
      F-PACE, the brand’s best-selling model. Last year, Jaguar introduced the E-PACE compact crossover, as well as the brand’s first-ever all-electric production car – the I-PACE, mid-size performance SUV.
       
      In addition to the ‘PACE’ family of SUVs and crossovers, the Jaguar brand includes the F-TYPE sports car, the  XE compact sport sedan, XF premium mid-size sedan, XF Sportbrake mid-size wagon and the brand’s luxury flagship – the full-size Jaguar XJ. Each model delivers segment leading driving dynamics, timeless design and the latest connected technologies.
       
      For added peace of mind, every new Jaguar vehicle comes with Jaguar EliteCare, a Best-in-Class ownership package1. This warranty is further expanded for Jaguar I-PACE customers covering the electric battery for 8-years / 100,000 miles and a 70 percent state of health2.

      Jaguar Land Rover announced in 2017 that from 2020 all new, or significantly updated, models will incorporate some form of electrification either optional or as standard. The company will introduce a portfolio of electrified products across its model range in the coming years; embracing fully electric (BEV), plug-in hybrid (PHEV) and mild hybrid (MHEV) vehicles as well as continuing to offer ultra-clean gasoline and diesel engines

      “The new generation Cayenne and refreshed Macan models are thrilling even more U.S. customers as the sports cars of the SUV market,” said Klaus Zellmer, President and CEO of PCNA. 

      Deliveries of the redesigned Cayenne quadrupled in July from a year ago, when the previous generation was selling out. Macan sales for July were up 8.8 percent compared to July 2018. Sales of the next generation 911 will commence shortly with the latest Porsche icon promising to once again set new standards in its segment.

      Porsche Approved Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) sales in the U.S. totaled 2,069
      vehicles in July, up 18.4 percent year-over-year.

    • I saw a Canyon lowered just enough (a little over 2 inches) and it looked pretty good. That truck reminded me of the old S-10/Sonoma sport package back in the late 90s/early 00s. I figure with better hanging and a nice set of wheels- it would be a very sharp truck. I really think there are a lot of folks out there that still want a truck but will never take it off road, but still want some fun too..... 🙂 
    • Wife's Malibu has a rear view camera- neither of us use it.  Son's Sonic (he's 22) has a B-U camera, he doesn't use it. It would be quite useful for backing up to a trailer, but other than that I don't find them particularly beneficial. - - - - - 
    • I really like having the backup camera w/ my Jeep...thick pillars and small side and rear windows make backing out of parking spaces challenging..

    • Oh stop it drama queen. There was a conservation about the subject you hate prior to your interjection. What qualifies as a “random thought” anyway? I see the same things talked about on this thread all the time and no one has had a problem with it (unless is politics which gets shut down for obvious reasons). Want to solve YOUR problem about seeing anything to do with dfelts preferred subject matter? Add him to your “ignore” list and POOOF! Problem solved and you can stop acting like a baby about it. Again if his were about anything else you didn’t hate, you wouldn’t have a problem with it.
