    Sergio must love seeing Alfa up 3000% while Dodge and Chrysler tank.  Makes it easy to divert all resources to Alfa and shut down the sinking brands and then sell Alfa and Jeep as separate pieces and take a huge golden parachute.

    Alfa has been a sunk brand for 15 years. He is using money from Jeep and Ram to necromance the brand.  I wouldn't be surprised if he tried Lancia next (down to just selling the rebadged 300 as the Thema, only in Italy)

    Easy to go up 3000% from the previous when the previous year was essentially zero. f@#k Alfa and Sergio.

    Alfa sales are still crap but Sergio will get paid by selling pieces of the company to make money.  So that is what he is going to try to do.

    Yet it’s Alfa and Fiat that are the sinking brands and always have been. Sergio is an idiot and a thief.

    Glad to see things are heading up...

    Noticed many fattened the discounts a bit, though there are still quite a few 2017s out there around me. If they up the discounts a little bit more, I think it's possible to have some positive figures to round out the year....

    Not all the news is good.  Buick down 20%; Dodge and Chrysler down at least 16% each; FIAT down 24%.

    Buick slid despite having THREE crossovers; Chevrolet is up 17% with how many crossovers....?  Some things are weird these days.

    Sergio is an idiot if you are a fan of the cars FCA makes.  But the Angelli family is paying him to make money, not sell cars, and corporate raiding and selling off pieces is how to make quick cash to line the family pockets.

    Dodge is down simply because of the loss of the Dart and mostly because they are phasing out the Grand Caravan production.  Chrysler is down simply because of the loss of the 200.  Jeep is down mainly because o the loss of the Patriot.  You do actually realize these things, right?

    To add what i said to Dodge, Buick is doing a changeover for their biggest and best selling CUV and the loss of the Verano is going to be big because it was easily their best selling car.

    17 F-150s have discounts around here of up to 17k, but I would MUCH rather have an 18 RC with the FX4 package and the 5.0/10 speed.

      Automakers for the most part were hurting in sales during the second quarter. The COVID-19 pandemic and the economy coming to a screeching halt for a brief time caused new car sales to drop by a third according to Automotive News. But there is a slim silver lining to this, full-size pickups have moved into being the best-selling segment of vehicles.
      According to data from Automotive News, one out of four vehicles sold between April and June was a pickup truck. This helped put them ahead of compact crossovers, which have held the top spot for some time. The reason is that trucks didn't take as big of a hit due to 0 percent financing offers from automakers to help bring in buyers. A large number of dealers said they sold the majority of trucks sitting on their lots.
      Mark LaNeve, Ford's vice president of U.S. marketing, sales and service provides another reason why trucks didn't fall off a cliff. Speaking to AN, he said that people need trucks for work and "affluent consumers who often buy such vehicles have been less affected by the pandemic."
      Trucks still took quite the hit in the quarter,

      We clearly have European, Asian and Americas auto fans. I feel this is a good place to discuss the sales of segments, models, etc. here. I have pulled the latest Statista data that can be gotten for free to show here and discuss.
      As such, there is clearly a leadership perceived image that BMW and Mercedes-Benz have carried the last few years. Yet with that, you look at over all sales and both these companies have flipped and flopped leadership of the year in specific luxury segments but lack over all auto sales in the US.
      Based on the reports that @Drew Dowdell posted in January 2020 on 2019 auto sales:
      Ford - 2,422,698 GM - 2,887,046 FCA - 2,203,663 Tesla - 367,500 Audi - 224,111 BMW - 360,918 Genesis - 21,233 Honda - 1,608,170 Hyundai - 688,771 Infiniti - 117,708 Jaguar Land Rover - 125,787 Kia - 615,338 Mazda - 278,552 Mercedes-Benz - 357,729 Mitsubishi - 121,046 Nissan - 1,227,973 Porsche - 61,568 Subaru - 700,117 Toyota - 2,383,349 Volkswagen - 363,322 Volvo - 108,234 2019 Auto Sales

    • I think as we move towards EV's just like GM has their connect and cruise motor, transmission and electrical harness with CPU that allows someone to update an old ICE auto with a modern power train, GM has committed to having connect and cruise EV conversion kits with choice of battery packs.  I can see Yamaha doing the same thing and if not, a 3rd party company that will bundle the motor/controller with a battery pack and wiring for those that want to convert an auto to electrical.
    • While we keep hearing this, I have a hard time believing they will pass ANY of those savings to the consumer. 
    • The Yamaha would be last on my "want" list but I'd have to at least give it a thorough look before actually crossing it off.  Yep, anything European is going to be a little pricier to repair/maintain but they just have so much more character than Japanese bikes. I'd sacrifice the money for what the European bikes offer, even if they're slower around a track or in a straight line. I'm not good enough to care about that stuff and I'm not buying a supersport anyway. A Streetfighter would be pretty much THE top of the list but I know if I was buying, it wouldn't be that price bracket. Then again, it would be tough to turn down a Speed Triple so I'd have to look at those two closely. the Streetfighter might actually be too sporty than what I'd want.  And, in all honesty, your bike would be high on the to-ride list if my price range would be higher as well.  Naked and sporty are my sweet spot.
