    Ouch, Chrysler...

     

    In a market that is booming with low fuel costs...to be down at all, let alone 21%, is rough news for them.

    You have to wonder if it is time to close the Chrysler brand. Make the 200 the Dodge Avenger, and sell more Caravans and Chargers.

    It's all the 200.  They probably pulled back incentives.

    I think you're yearly total for Lincoln is off.. I didn't look it up but at ~11k last month it's highly unlikely that they mustered ~2,500,935 the previous 11 months.

    They must have pulled them back hard or people don't find it worth paying full price for it.. either/or/and.. I think it's a good looking car. I haven't really looked into them much and I've only heard negative things about the trans in the I4.

    They could have... in la-la land.

     

    It has been corrected.

    You can't look at one month of numbers when there are huge swings like that.  It almost always signals something else going on beside huge shifts in the market (VW excepted at the moment).  If you look at the December 2014 Fiat-Chrysler Sales, you'll see that the 200 was up 187% over the previous year.  2014 was the first year of the new model so old/big fluctuations are to be expected. 

     

    What is more important is that the 200 is up 52% for the whole year, and Chrysler brand as a whole is up 5% in spite of T&C being down big as it nears its end.

    Wasn't the 21% year over year? Or did I just read it wrong? 

     

    Ooops, sorry, you are correct. My baaaad.

    Camaro is selling old and new, and is still down.  How so?

     

    Low inventory. 

     

     

    On new you mean, right?

    But still, a fire sale on outgoing model combined with some new, with such a significant drop, should be troubling.

    On both.  There are 8,304 new 2015 Camaros listed in inventory right now for over 3,000 Chevrolet dealerships. That means an average of 2.7 2015 Camaros per dealership.  Some will have more, some will have none.

     

    There are a bit over 3,000 2016 Camaros for the same total number of dealerships, so 1 per dealer.  It gets pretty hard, even with strong incentives, to sell an old model when the fantastic new model is sitting in the showroom.   A Camaro (or Mustang, or Challenger) is largely an emotional purchase.  You don't buy these cars because you need a car today... so if someone really wants one, they'll probably also be willing to wait for the perfect 2016 to come along or order straight from the factory.

    The 2016 Camaro hasn't reached its full sales potential yet. 

     

    I always am amused at how people can be 'worried' for an automaker or even truly 'happy' for one either. I get it, you may be salient to them - either their decisions, product, internal/external stakeholders...but seriously, to assume the fears or joy of an automaker or any separate, legal, commercial, corporate entity as one's own is just deeply confounding.

     

    There's going to be huge sales surge pretty soon for it.

    I personally am not worried or happy suave, if you are eluding to me.

    But both camaro's are being sold simultaneously, and although I would not expect big gains yet due of course to the slow fill of new, I would also not expect sales to drop so much year over year. Especially considering the large incentives available on the old camaro.  Sure, some will want the new, but I have to believe many would be happy with the discounted current model, especially considering the increase in price of new.  IOW, the difference in price is substantial between them, which should easily motivate old out of the lots.

    I am not sure I would expect a surge in sales.  Not with the price increases.  At least not any time soon.  But I could be completely wrong.

    The marketplace is pretty good at reminding us is that overall there are no precedents, and you can't predict it.

     

    This slow sales period might also be affected by the Polar-Vortex of 2016. 

     

    I certainly am not going to buy a RWD coupe if the temperatures drop over 20 degrees Celsius in a matter of hours in the evening, like it did this past weekend.

     

    We had some epic now storms and floods recently, again, a lot of factor that aren't directly attributable, but they certainly played a part.

    You may not buy a RWD coupe, but you might buy one of the 1.2 million trucks GM sold this year.

    Holy crap. And not an aluminum fender or turbo V6 to be found in the lot of them.

    Both Silverado and Sierra outpaced F-series sales increases, and the Canyonados conjured sales seemingly out of thin air.

    Astonishing.

    Well, I don't know about that either.  One can make fairly astute and logical predictions, and there are many precedents to be studied.

    And I did not know there was a Polar Vortex this year already.  Weather in Michigan has been unseasonably mild.  

     

    But maybe that explains the surge in Escape, Edge and Explorer sales.  

    Even F series continued it's 34 year consistent record, with 50 years of consistent sales leadership in Canada. And that is impressive, considering they gave up so much market share for most of the year due to all their production issues.  2016 should get some or much of it back with momentum building so steady and the new SD launching as well.  I expect a much smoother launch this time.

    Man, those trucks tho. If I had spent all that money in aluminum only to get clocked by a pair of steelies I'd be pretty embarrassed.

    Outsold by 40,000 vehicles. Then to have NO ANSWER for the competition's midsize stuff?

    Someone over at Ford really crapped the bed if you ask me :D :D :D

    Just frickin' horrible :P

    Anyway.......I actually floated a crazy idea by the wife recently, that I would not mind being an uber driver.  I pretty much retired from my side business several years ago, and hobbies don't keep me busy enough.  And I love to drive.  I say this here because I wonder how many sales come from that growing business.  There are requirements to be a driver, and I am guessing that it is forcing some people to trade their used vehicle for something new.  I would only do the Black options, where I need a luxury sedan.  Profit is greater, and your clientele is much more desirable. It would be evenings and weekends.  I am gonna do the math, but if anyone has thought of it, I would love to hear about it.

    Uber Black requires commercial insurance and possibly a taxi medallion depending on location. Get a 3 row crossover from a luxury brand and you can drive UberX, UberXL, and Uber Select... All without the commercial insurance requirements. XL and Select charge higher rates.

    I don't know, I imagine my 3 row SUV filled with kids, party goers, etc.

     

    But I imagine more prestige and suits in a luxury sedan and better tipping.
