I am shocked by these results.  

It is to be expected, for various reasons.

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.

Quoted for truth.

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 Toyota Prius V is an odd duck in the Prius family. The wagon/van shape offered buyers more space to carry stuff while returning high fuel economy numbers. But its run in the U.S. will be coming to a close at the end of this year.
      "After six years and nearly 160,000 units sold in the U.S., the decision was made to end Prius V production for the U.S. and Puerto Rico this December," said Toyota's East Coast communications manager Corey Proffitt to Green Car Reports.
      Proffitt went on to say the Prius V would continue to be sold in other markets around the world, but it is unclear whether Canada will be part of that or not.
      Declining sales is the key reason Toyota is pulling the Prius V out of the U.S.
      2011: 8,399 2012: 40,669 2013: 34,989 2014: 30,762 2015: 28,290 2016: 14,840 2017 (YTD): 8,299 The reason for the massive drop-off in 2016 is due to Toyota launching the RAV4 Hybrid with sales of 45,000 models. In 2017, Toyota has moved around 41,400 units.

      General Motors CEO Mary Barra spoke yesterday at the Barclays Global Automotive Conference in New York. During her talk, Barra said the company expects to make a profit off electric vehicles once they launch their next-generation EV platform.
      “We are working to provide desirable, obtainable and profitable vehicles that deliver a range of over 300 miles. There’s a lot of really creative things we’re doing to achieve that profitability point for that new platform,” Barra said to investors.
      The next-generation modular platform, due in 2021 will play a pivotal role in GM's plan to launch 20 all-new electric and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles by 2023. The platform will help drop the total per-unit cost by 30 percent or more. It will be used across a number of GM brands and various segments.
      GM is also working on a new battery system that will cut the per-kilowatt-hour from $145 to under $100 by 2021.
      Before these two launches, GM will be introducing four new EV and hydrogen vehicles. Two of those will be launch by April 2019 according to a GM spokesman. At least two vehicles will be small crossovers according to Automotive News. It is expected the electric models will use the underpinnings of the Chevrolet Bolt.
      The company has a set a goal of a million electric vehicles by 2026 - with most happening in China due to their strict production quotas for EVs.

      SUVs at one time were seen as utility vehicles that could get you through the worst mother nature had on offer. Now SUVs have moved upmarket, becoming a status symbol at the school's parking lot and not tacking some off-road trail. Mercedes-Benz believes something similar could happen with pickup trucks.
      "SUVs are elegant lifestyle products with a high-quality finish to them. Not every customer takes them into the wilderness anymore. We believe pickups could go in a similar direction," said Volker Mornhinweg, Mercedes-Benz vans boss to Automotive News.
      Mercedes-Benz will soon be launching their first truck, the X-Class in a number of markets. Certain markets such as Europe and South Africa, Mercedes hopes to capture "trend-conscious individuals".
      There is a big pitfall to Mercedes' prediction. JATO Dynamics wrote in a research note that the X-Class will face "several challenges" in Europe where many customers see pickup trucks as work vehicles, not something like a daily driver. But that might be changing. As we reported last week, sales of pickup trucks in Europe have been climbing steadily.
