103 500L sold nationwide....Ram and Jeep doing well....but painful to look at regular passenger cars or Fiat n any sort of sober or unmedicated state.

cars weren't that bad.  the LX cars still sell very good for being fullsizers.  I am a bit shocked the Charger crossed the 10000 unit mark.  We know dart is dying and I wouldn't be surprised is Chrysler goes completely goodbye in a few ears while killing the 200 and 300 and moving Pacifica to the Dodge brand.

Why not just move the Pacifica to Dodge and 300 as the Dodge luxury full size sedan, kill Chrysler to streamline and minimize costs.

Heritage? :huh:

They gave up on that in the 90's.  Hell any chance of even wanting to keep Chrysler alive went out the door with letting Fiat take over Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep & RAM.

Heck FCA - Fiat Chrsyler Automobile is really more of a FJA - Fiat Jeep Automobile.

They should have just gone with IAA - Italian American Automobiles as the Corporate parent company name and then you can do what you want when you want with the name plates.

I honestly think Fiat is doing to Chrysler what GM did to Pontiac. Starve it of any product and then just kill it off.

That could well be.  But there will be people inside the organization fighting that change, and I think that is what is going on.  In a few years, it will be Jeeps, Fiats, the odd muscle car, and RAM trucks.  and even then, they are putting a lot of money into incentives to keep moving RAM trucks after the sales figure scandal.  Methinks the investors are not too happy at this point.

 

More on the trouble with FCA and investors.

      The Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer has been talked about for the past few years, mostly in terms of delays and figuring out what platform will underpin it. But a new report from Road & Track reveals Jeep has something very special in store.
      An internal document from transmission supplier ZF lists the 2018 production and pre-production vehicles using a version of their 8HP eight-speed automatic transmission. Among the vehicles listed the Grand Wagoneer with the platform code ZS. What makes this more intriguing is the mention of a Grand Wagoneer Trackhawk. The listing says it has a 6.2L V8 and produces 729 PS - about 718 horsepower. Like the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, the Wagoneer Trackhawk uses a beefed-up version of the eight-speed automatic - ZF-8HP95X.
      Could this mean that Jeep will be launching a mad Wagoneer in the coming years? Possibly not. Road & Track has some possible guesses as to why this is mentioned,
