    Why Sergio is obsessed with selling FCA: check out those painful Chrysler and Dodge numbers.

    P.S. what happened to Buick?

    Well of course Chrysler and Dodge numbers are sad... it is a direct result of PRODUCT STARVATION.

    Oddly, Journey sales were up substantially, Caravan sales flat but solid, and they even sold 1 Avenger in June...wow...a new Avenger still on a lot 4 years after it was discontinued.

    Fiat and Chrysler brand are dead.  They might as well close up shop with those.  Dodge is a rental car brand, which is fine, they probably make money doing it so there is a business case there.  

    What happened at Genesis?  Other than they need SUVs and a small car bad, because if you only sell big sedans, I guess you see a 50% drop as that market is tanking.

    As far as Buick goes, you have Encore and Envision have been around a little while, and Buick has a large sedan with LaCrosse that is tanking also.

    Case in point, Land Rover up 20%, Jaguar down 20% and that is with Jaguar now having 2 SUVs for sale, people just want these SUVs, not cars sadly.

    Still #1 selling luxury brand in 2018.  June 2017 was an all time record high sales month.

    And the GLE and GLS are dated and probably nearing the end of production.  They have new GLE, GLS coming in 2019, plus a new 2019 GLA and a GLB which will probably be a 2020 model.  People want the SUVs.

    SUVs are rebodied pickup trucks.  Crossovers (or CUVs) are rebodied cars.  Please remember this.  Yes, we are in a time when CUVs and SUVs are kicking sedans' rear ends every day on the sales charts.  I wonder if that is sustainable if gas exceeds $4 a gallon again.

    Not always.  Some SUVs are on SUV-specific platforms.   Like the Wrangler and Grand Cherokee.  Neither truck nor car based.

    I would think a better descriptor for the masses is BOF vs. UB. I think a lot of folk would say the Wrangler is akin to trucks since it is body on frame, while the GC is a unibody like CUVs are.

    I lump SUVs/CUVs together in one pot /  see little point in differentiating unless you are hauling a lot of weight.

    I would consider the GC an SUV since it is a RWD/AWD platform rather than a FWD/AWD transverse engine platform like CUVs tend to be.

    I would agree with you on the distinction if it was not for the fact like @balthazar makes a point of lumping them all together as the bulk of society really does not care or know the difference you point out now. Like splitting hairs of a medium brown versus dark brown.

    True, but I couldn't care less about the bulk of society, though...;)

    Likewise with the current and Future GLE and GLS which have a platform made specifically for SUV and couldn’t be used for a car or pickup.  Unless it was a Subaru’s Baja or Holden Ute style pick up I suppose.

    A Ridgeline style pickup based off the GLE or GLS would be interesting for Mercedes, likewise something like that for Jeep off the GC.

    Depends on whether the economy is sliding or not.....if it is-oh yes they will...

     

    If by chance it does not, then I could see it go for a little while....
