Renegade is a nice product, glad it is doing well...300 is doing well....Chrysler is like the bright kid in school who doesn't give a rats rear end...when it tries, it comes up with some cool stuff.

Now if we could just get them to invest more heavily in products for the US auto market.

The 200 and Dart have really fallen off the table, I guess those will be discontinued sooner rather than later.   What should be troubling to FCA is they are advertising the heck out of the Pacifica, and it is selling worse than the Town and Country, and the Caravan is dropping off now too as they clear those out.  So their van sales are down about 50% with a new product.

In this case giving up the ghost quickly might be best for all involved.

I still like the 200, but yes, time to put the investment into what sells and that happens to be CUVs.  It looks like with just a few exceptions, cars were basically down across the board while CUVs are gaining.  I wonder how many people are holding out or the 18 Wrangler and 17 Compass which should both far surpass their predecessors.

The Dart was actually discontinued back in September.  The 200 only lives for a couple more months IIRC.

Clearly not a good month for FCA.  Supposedly they cut back on fleet sales this month.  Goes to show you how much they fleet.  Probably a good strategy in the long rung but they need to spend some money on their North American product to keep them fresh or it's not going to work.
