The only segments where carryover product is down for Mopar are vans (which are gradually going away industry-wide), one Chrysler model, and Fiat's lineup. Even there things aren't exactly awful: Fiat as a whole is off by 3,500 units, and the Chrysler 300 is off by just over 1,000.

What Mopar needs to do is shore up sales in he small-car segment, and that will require a Dodge and/or Chrysler built off that 500 platform. The little Fiat's looks are too offbeat to really get mainstream success in the US.

Jeep is white hot and I think the Renegade is going to pick up steam and sell even more.  I think the Renegade looks pretty good, it has a classic Jeep look, at Kia Soul prices, that is going to be a winning combo.

 

Ram pickups do nice volume, their commercial vans are nothing compared to Ford's volume.  Fiat and Alfa sales are a joke, Dodge/Chrysler are pretty uninspiring.   Jeep is holding this company together.
