Wonder when the next auto correction will happen. Year after year sales growth is not sustainable. Yes I do see some big double digits drops but still some auto companies are gonna hit a point of needing a correction.

Course I think some auto companies with bland boring product lines needs to really shake things up. Course then I am dumb founded by VW becoming the worlds biggest auto company even with Diesel gate.

Why even post this?

Its January...

When in Hades has January ever been good to any muscle car sale, ever?

Is this, like, shocking news or something?

 

Oh...Mustang is outselling Camaro...THAT is the news you like to point out....

You know...El Kabong no longer posts in here....

The rest of us really dont care for that...the rest of us want all 3 pony cars to stick around and evolve into electricity powered muscle cars when the internal combustion engine is laid to rest in the next 20-30-40-50 years and beyond!

I will give you this:

Come summer, I think we will finally see the Challenger start losing sales as it really has become out dated and obsolete...the people that bought the first Challys were excited when the updates to the interior happened so they handed over their old Challys and moved into the new ones....but that charade has already happened once and it has become stale to happen again while at the same time, that interior upgrade got  conquest sales too, but...finally, this is the end of the road for the Chally...If 1 seat Demon is true and possibly marketed as a drag only car, Im afraid the time is up for the Chally....maybe the supposed 'Cuda will help...

The Camaro...is ugly as sin...and the Transformer fanboys have gotten their Bumblee Bee fix with the last generation....this Alpha one was doomed from the get go!

The great AWD pony car experiment, should be interesting to see if challenger taps a market nerve. Pony cars are toys and that's why their sales are tanking in the age of CUV's

Gotta make performance SUVs now.  All wheel drive coupes and sedans may slow the Crossover take over rate, but automakers got people convinced that they need AWD and that they need a 40 cubic foot area to haul a gym bag and 2 bags of groceries.   If you have all wheel drive Camaros and Mustangs, maybe that gets buyers in the snow belt to keep buying, but it is hard to stop the crossover.

I get the feeling it has more to do with what is going on rather the the cars themselves...

 

I expect if things keep getting crazier out there, sales are going to dive based on fear.

A few local dealerships are cutting staff around here already...many are afraid to put money out at the moment....

Mustang and Challenger having their worst January in 3yrs, and Camaro having its worst month of sales since its rebirth is ( sales ) newsworthy.

If you don't care, don't dont read, don't comment. Pretty simple.

Well I thought it was interesting information.. Not thread worthy but interesting as it was info about ALL of them doing terrible and not trying to single out any one of them.

Here is a Fun Fact...

F- Series - 57,995 ( +12.5% )

All four GM models ( Silverado, Sierra, Colorado, Canyonero ) - 57,757

 

http://news.pickuptrucks.com/2017/02/best-selling-pickup-trucks-january-2017.html

 

 

 

Is this a huge F-Series month or a slow GM month? Or a combination of both? Is this the first time it has happened since the mid-sizers have come out?

Heres another fun fact. 

The Suburban had a better January than the Expedition and Navigator combined. We don't even need to mention Tahoe sales, which continues to beat its competitors by a mile.

2.) Obvious trolling 

How was it trolling? He posted a link and a quote from the link was about all three. If it was a troll move wouldn't he have used the article title at least that was showing the Camaro in a negative light as opposed to the quote he chose? Also, this is a sales thread.. it was about sales..

 

 

You guys look really stupid right now.

No offense ccap41, but I don't need your support to make my point. He does this every month the Mustang comes out on top and then hides under a rock when they don't so so well. There are hundreds of other models to talk about but the fanboy always chooses one make and their models when they are doing well. That's his MO and I have no problem calling him out on in, escpecially after seeing his childish response to Olds. 

If it happens that often.. ignore it..? Aren't you two supposed to be doing that anyway, yet neither of you can stay away from each other? You two are like the high school crush who isn't allowed to see her boyfriend but she's sooooo in love with him she can't stop seeing him until the parents(mods) find out and put an end to it.

Yes, enthusiasts tend to want to talk about the enthusiast vehicles. Sports cars and 'manly' trucks.

Except he is neither. He is a one brand fan who only talks about one brand. The only time he speaks about other brands is when he can talk $h! about him. 

 

Btw, ignoring is a choice but that does not mean that I have to stay silent and the last time I checked, that's a two way street. 

I said the two of you. I didn't say just you or just him.

You two are pretty much in love with each other. You two can't resist the companionship of one another.

Honestly, I've seen way worse fanboy posts than one that says all 3 of the D3 are down to be calling somebody on that. Had it been something like, "Mustang dominates Camaro" or "Ford eats Chevy's dinner" it would be more understandable but it literally said all three had a terrible January dating back at least a few years.

 I gave you a carrot to chew on...yet this is your response back...

Check this out, my message to you-hoo-hoo

If you don't care, don't dont read, don't comment. Pretty simple.

(that was easy as 1-2-3 as well as a copy and paste response)

3 little pony cars are not sellin' in January...Dont worry about a thing, 'cause every little thing will be alright...

Maybe that is why for next year, the Chally gets AWD?

Hey...I make conversation here...

Some of us cant handle my heat..too damn bad!

Many choose to ignore me when the heat gets too hot....they leave the kitchen...I stay and continue cooking!

      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.
