    Wow, Look at those GM numbers!

    Yes, and Lincoln is doing very well also....Glad to see both Cadillac and Lincoln doing well.

    FCA is sucking wind though...

    FCA blows, to me. They just don't make anything I would even consider right now. The Hellcats are suuuuper gnarly and all but that's about it. Everything seems old or the new stuff seems too Fiat. The new Alfa sedan looks beautiful but I doubt there is an Alfa dealership within 100 miles of me. Probably more like 250-300 miles north, around Chicago.

    Okay, check that. I'd consider a Grand Cherokee and the new Compass? Patriot? Whichever one was just shown off.

    FCA should do an Alfa Romeo version of the Pacifica with a 3.0 V6 turbo to boost sales.  The problem FCA has is not enough Alfas, they only sold 23 cars, that tells me they should spend every last dollar they have to make about 10 new products for Alfa Romeo.

    I've noticed since FCA was busted for fudging Sales Totals, theyve been sucking it up...

    This company is circling the drain.

    The sales just prove that Alfa should have been left in the history books, the money stolen from the US units should have gone back into those divisions products. ALFA and FIAT will be the death of FCA.

    I like the Renegade, but I cannot kid myself into actually thinking I would drop coin for one.

    GT350 R would wildly Trump a hellcat....by like a hundred to one or better for me....so in real world terms...nahh.....would rather have a plain Shelby than a hellcat, actually.

    Used Charger R/T my 23 year old son and I looked at a little while back, 25 grand, decent miles....but car did not feel well put together.

    There is a reason Charger is one of the fastest depreciating passenger cars sold in North America.

    Alfa sedan is nice to look at, and would be great if you were in Italy where people actually understood the car.  As it is, destined to be a repair and depreciation magnet.  They sell in stupidly small numbers also.

    The difference between FCA and a turd though is that a turd can be composted for useful fertilizer.

    I guess FCA will provide industrial tooling in the secondhand market when they implode, so the analogy isn't too far off...

    This thing needs a sarcasm button....

    +1 to everything you posted. And throw the ZL1 in with the Shelby and Hellcat and I'd easily take that as well. I'd likely take a Chevy SS over a Charger Hellcat too.

    The SS is an interesting exercise in less is more.  A hellcat might be fun at getting attention at a local car show....but pulling up next to a greasy spoon cafe in rural Kansas with the SS and ahving people slowly realize what it is would be loads more fun.

    Plus the SS in every detail feels so much more like a real car, right down to the difference in the click the seat belt makes when you latch it. 

    Chevy, more than any other mainstream car maker, has its act together IMHO.  Not that I am dissing Ford....I love the efforts Ford is making.  Fiesta has a ton of options and packages, and is an attractive little car.  Focus is dated, but still really competitive in a wildly tough segment.  Mustang is in some ways the best Mustang they have built to date, and given the number of cool stangs they have done over the years, that is saying something.

    The Aston Martinish styling on the Fusion is aging very well IMHO, and will still look good ten years from now.

    And my ##$%%  ## $%^ the trucks are wonderful from Ford also...who would have thought we would have a product like the Raptor?

    Very sorry in a way that the Chrysler/Plymouth?dodge that I loved as a kid is not longer with us....it started going away in the early 1970's and in some ways hasn't been back since.

    The K car might have saved them, but it isn't exactly a bright moment in American automotive history!

    Look at VW. So much for the notion that they weren't  long for this market, or should be replaced with a different brand. Golf Sportwagen sales were up over 200%.

    Also, good for GM.

    The Alltrack looks like a nice replacement for my Jetta at some point, indeed...

    These sales increases are being bolstered by models that aren't even new. Aside from the Alltrak, the rest of their line is carry over. And in fact, some of their trims have been culled, creating less options.

    These numbers will continue to grow in the coming months as the Atlas comes out, the new Tiguan hits our shores, and the CC is replaced. Passat and Jetta aren't terribly far from replacing either. Throw in the EV models they are working on, and possibly even a truck in the coming years, and it is more than possible they can rebound from Dieselgate and continue to be successful and grow in the future. They just have to take the right steps. It is not a time for them to be timid.

    I personally never thought that VW was doomed in this market...  just hoped they were going out of business.  Them and every other foreign company.  But never doubt the stupidity of the American people.  Dumb asses somehow elected Trump thinking that a Billionaire actually gave a shit about their finances

    On the contrary, we need robust competition in the automotive market to have each car maker bring us their best.  Right now Lexus, Acura, BMW and the like are a bit on the defensive IMHO in terms of product in the luxury market.

    I need them to bring better product so GM improves our current lineup even further....Adam Smith got a few things right...

      The rivalry of the Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang has been going for ages in the U.S. But now this fight has expanded into China.
      Automotive News reports that a growing group of Chinese buyers are being drawn towards to these models as the exude the no-apologies Americana attitude.
      "We're seeing the beginning of a muscle car culture here. Something that is uniquely American appeals to the Chinese consumer. The image that it relays to the automotive public is very positive," said James Chao, a China market auto analyst with IHS Markit.
      Sales of both models are small with Chevrolet only moving 2,000 Camaros since its launch 2011. Ford is doing slightly better with 6,200 Mustangs sold since its launch in 2015. In the first quarter, Mustang sales saw a 90 percent increase to 963 vehicles. Part of the reason for the slow sales comes down to the price. The Camaro starts about 399,900 yuan (about $58,000) - more than double of the base price of $26,900 in the U.S. The Mustang isn't that far behind, costing about $15 dollars less. Prices are increased due to a 25 percent import tariff on U.S. made vehicles, homologation and shipping fees, and Chinese buyers trending to splurge on higher-time models.
      But despite the low sales, the Camaro and Mustang are bringing buyers to dealers. These models act as eye candy to help draw shoppers into showrooms with the hope they'll purchase a vehicle, where it be the eye candy or something a little less exciting.

      If the Volkswagen diesel emission scandal hasn't swayed you from wanting one, then you'll be happy to hear Volkswagen will once again be able to sell brand-new 2015 model year TDI models. Green Car Reports says near 11,000 TDI models will soon be back up for sale once they are updated with new software, making them legal.
      Volkswagen does caution those interested in picking up a new TDI to call their nearest dealership to see if they have any in stock.
      But that's not all. Volkswagen is offering some massive discounts on these models. CarsDirect reports that Volkswagen is offering 0% APR for up to 72 months and $5,000 cash bonus if you decide to buy. Interested in leasing one? Volkswagen will offer a cash bonus of $8,500. 
      There are a couple of caveats to this offer. First, you need to have an excellent credit history to qualify for either offer. Second is that Volkswagen isn't advertising this offer.
      "We will not be advertising the available incentives from our financing arm as they [sic] vehicle availability will vary per dealership," said Volkswagen spokeswoman Jeannine Ginivan.

      The new Volkswagen Tiguan looks to solve some of the pressing issues of the current model such as its size that puts it between subcompact and compact crossovers. But that doesn't mean the current Tiguan is leaving anytime soon.
      Hendrik Muth, VW’s senior vice president for product marketing tells Car and Driver that the current Tiguan will stick around for 2018 and 2019, wearing the Tiguan Limited nameplate. Muth explained this model will be aimed at more budget-minded buyers and those who don't want the bigger footprint of the new Tiguan. Another reason mentioned in Car and Driver's story is the current Tiguan saw its best sales in 2015 and 2016.
      One item that could put some people off from buying the Tiguan Limited is will not get the  6-year/72,000-mile warranty announced for the 2018 Atlas and Tiguan crossovers. Expect pricing to be announced sometime in the fall.
