Really interesting seeing the huge gains in CUV sales and mostly losses in the car ranges.  Know the Rogue beat out the Rav 4 for Dec and very interested to see how it stacked up to the CR-V.  Maybe the Star Wars Rogue one mash-up really helped haha.

Those are some larger downers for FCA divisions. Even Jeep down 6%? Only brand not down was Ram Trucks.

 

That is to be expected as the Patriot and current Compass are phased out, along with the Dart and 200.  This is absolutely expected and no big deal.

Good to see GM end the year on a positive note. FCA is beyond hurting when Jeeps sales are declining. Probably temporary but not a good sign if this goes on for an extended period of time.

remember, they are losing the Patriot altogether which generally accounted for 10 to 12k sales a month and not replacing it.  Sales will be down for sometime unless the Compass picks up all of the lost Patriot/Compass sales or all the Patriot interest goes to the Renegade which i don't really see happening.

Like I said, probably temporary given how strong Jeep sales have been lately. Time will tell.

And it is less than a year away from a MAJOR MCE.  And that just happened to be a VERY huge month last year.  Mustang Sales for example, where down at least that much.

My big worry is that the new Compass will no doubt be quite a bit pricier than the current one and the Patriot which will drive sales down comparatively in concert with having 1 less model to sell.  Oddly enough I think you are more optimistic here than I am lol.

No Stew Mustang was not down " at least that much ". 19% is nowhere near close to 34%...

Yet total sales are quite a few thousand less than the Cherokee which means yes, that lower percentage is just as painful for the Mustang, especially since it doesn't have stablemates based on the same platform to make up the slack.  

 

We could bring up the Fusion and the fact it is down 25% despite a decently heavy refresh and new submodels for 17.

Spin away. 

( I think this has to be a first - someone comparing Mustang sales to a CUV )

And now you want to discuss Fusion Sales vs a CUV?

Thought we were just picking out a specific vehicle for a brand that happened to have lower sales compared to last year right?  I mean seriously dude.

Really?

Maybe your liberal schooling ( :P ) wasn't clear on how to separate discussion points? Like as in having the Cherokee and Mustang in the same sentence is a direct comparison. 

Class dismissed.

LOL, poor, poor boy.  Loves pointing out negatives, but guess what, your chosen manufacturer isn't a special snowflake, they have their sales slumps too.

Thanks Captain Obvious. Ever mfg has inclines and declines. 

Yet Jeep Division is down, Ford CUV/SUV is up. Taking in consumer buying preferences, that hopefully won't become a trend for Jeep.

Speaking of obvious, one should note that only the Cherokee and the Patriot are down and being that the Patriots reason is because it is a goner, Jeeps situation is not near as dire as you are making it out to be. All of Ford is not okay either. The Escape was down for the month and the Explorer is down for the whole year. That is what's obvious here.

Enlighten me while you (once again) pass off insults. Fact. All of Ford (including the CUVs you are touting) is not okay. Debate it, argue it, whatever but these petty little insults are what got your own sidekick dismissed from here so you might want to reconsider your "tactic" before responding here.

You're the one trying to argue something about Ford. 

Not me. Nowhere did I say anything slightly alluding to " all of Ford is okay ". So knockoff your feeble attempt at putting words in my mouth.

And you're the one trying to argue something about FCA and last time I checked, this was a sales thread for all brands. No one put words into your mouth. You are merely interpreting it that way while dishing out more petty insults so maybe you should heed your own advice.

In regards to FCA, there is nothing to argue.

Yes but not when it comes to Jeep. If it weren't for them, FCA would be official toast.

And there is plenty to argue. Your agreeing with this is not necessary for it to be true.

      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.

      Europe is starting to develop a case of pickup truck fever. According to data from JATO Dynamics, 80,300 trucks were sold in Europe in the first half of this year. This pales in comparison to the 1.1 million full-size and 216,194 midsize trucks sold in the U.S. in the same timeframe. But sales in Europe are climbing. LMC Automotive says sales of trucks in Europe are up 19 percent and they predict sales will crest 200,000 next year.
      Why this steady rise in pickups? According to Automotive News Europe, it comes down to the lack of alternatives and government regulations.
      "One of the reasons is usage. Previously people used large, body-on-frame SUVs to tow boats or horse trailers. Nowadays, with high regulations and pressure [to move to] small engines with dual-clutch automatic gearboxes, it's not really possible to use SUVs to tow. People with these hobbies need to have a truck," said Renault's product director of pickups, Anton Lysyy.
      Take for example the Land Rover Defender. When production of this off-road icon ended last year, many buyers switched to the likes of the Ford Ranger as it offered the off-road capability of the Defender.
      Truck manufacturers have taken notice of this increase in sales and are starting to offer more extras. That includes new infotainment systems, active safety equipment, and a long list of accessories such as hardtops. New manufacturers are wanting to take a slice of this growing market as well. Mercedes-Benz will soon be launching their X-Class, while Renault announced their Alaskan truck (both models based on the Nissan Navara). PSA Group revealed earlier this year that it would be working with Chinese automaker Changan Automobile on developing a new truck that would be sold in China and Europe in 2020.
