Why Sergio is obsessed with selling FCA: check out those painful Chrysler and Dodge numbers.

P.S. what happened to Buick?

Well of course Chrysler and Dodge numbers are sad... it is a direct result of PRODUCT STARVATION.

Oddly, Journey sales were up substantially, Caravan sales flat but solid, and they even sold 1 Avenger in June...wow...a new Avenger still on a lot 4 years after it was discontinued.

Fiat and Chrysler brand are dead.  They might as well close up shop with those.  Dodge is a rental car brand, which is fine, they probably make money doing it so there is a business case there.  

What happened at Genesis?  Other than they need SUVs and a small car bad, because if you only sell big sedans, I guess you see a 50% drop as that market is tanking.

As far as Buick goes, you have Encore and Envision have been around a little while, and Buick has a large sedan with LaCrosse that is tanking also.

Case in point, Land Rover up 20%, Jaguar down 20% and that is with Jaguar now having 2 SUVs for sale, people just want these SUVs, not cars sadly.

Still #1 selling luxury brand in 2018.  June 2017 was an all time record high sales month.

And the GLE and GLS are dated and probably nearing the end of production.  They have new GLE, GLS coming in 2019, plus a new 2019 GLA and a GLB which will probably be a 2020 model.  People want the SUVs.

SUVs are rebodied pickup trucks.  Crossovers (or CUVs) are rebodied cars.  Please remember this.  Yes, we are in a time when CUVs and SUVs are kicking sedans' rear ends every day on the sales charts.  I wonder if that is sustainable if gas exceeds $4 a gallon again.

Not always.  Some SUVs are on SUV-specific platforms.   Like the Wrangler and Grand Cherokee.  Neither truck nor car based.

I would think a better descriptor for the masses is BOF vs. UB. I think a lot of folk would say the Wrangler is akin to trucks since it is body on frame, while the GC is a unibody like CUVs are.

I lump SUVs/CUVs together in one pot /  see little point in differentiating unless you are hauling a lot of weight.

I would consider the GC an SUV since it is a RWD/AWD platform rather than a FWD/AWD transverse engine platform like CUVs tend to be.

I would agree with you on the distinction if it was not for the fact like @balthazar makes a point of lumping them all together as the bulk of society really does not care or know the difference you point out now. Like splitting hairs of a medium brown versus dark brown.

True, but I couldn't care less about the bulk of society, though...;)

Likewise with the current and Future GLE and GLS which have a platform made specifically for SUV and couldn’t be used for a car or pickup.  Unless it was a Subaru’s Baja or Holden Ute style pick up I suppose.

A Ridgeline style pickup based off the GLE or GLS would be interesting for Mercedes, likewise something like that for Jeep off the GC.

Depends on whether the economy is sliding or not.....if it is-oh yes they will...

 

If by chance it does not, then I could see it go for a little while....

      The past couple of years has seen a lot of talk about consumers are turning away from cars towards trucks and utility vehicles. U.S. automakers have responded to this trend by announcing cuts to their car lineup - General Motors being the latest one. But other automakers are being more cautious.
      Jim Lentz, CEO of Toyota North America told a gathering at the Detroit Economic Club last week that car sales are reaching the point of bottoming out - just under 30 percent in November sales. Unlike the American brands, Lentz isn't giving up on cars as they represent more than 4 million compact, midsize, and near-luxury cars sold to buyers.
      "There’s no way I’m going to walk away from that. We are always going to have a bias toward passenger cars,” said Lentz.
      The Associated Press reports that sales of passenger cars "are on pace to be 800,000 vehicles below 2017, while truck and SUV sales should increase by the same amount."

      It is already tough for a number of people to afford a new vehicle as the average transaction price keeps rising. According to Kelly Blue Book, the average transaction price for November rose 2.1 percent to $36,978. This isn't being helped by American automakers deciding to stop producing cars due to changing consumer tastes. This was brought to light last week when General Motors announced that it would be cutting a number of cars including the Chevrolet Cruze. Most automakers and dealers believe consumers will move towards utility vehicles, but some dealers believe that consumers may defect from American automakers because they don't offer the vehicle they are looking for.
      Chad Martin, a Bowling Green, Ky., dealer tells Automotive News that consumers feel the "affordability pinch" when automakers decide to drop cars to focus more on utility vehicles. For the most part, consumers "generally seem to be shopping for a particular type of vehicle, such as compact cars." Remove them out of your lineup and consumers are likely going to look elsewhere.
      "What this is going to mean is, you're going to see a somewhat higher defection rate because you don't have the product lineup that particular consumer wants," said Martin.
      Another big hurdle facing consumers who want to stick with the domestics is pricing. Martin explained that there is more than a $5,000 difference in pricing between compact crossovers and compact sedans. 
      Obviously, the consumer is going to have to absorb that $5,000 difference," said Martin.
      The numbers from Kelly Blue Book tell the story.
      Compact Car Average Transaction Price: $20,458 Subcompact Crossover/SUV Average Transaction Price: $24,210 Compact Crossover/SUV Average Transaction Price: $28,765 Jeremy Acevedo, Edmunds' manager of industry analysis agrees with the sentiment said by some dealers that consumers loyal to a segment may look elsewhere.
      "It's easy for shoppers to move from a Cavalier to a Cobalt to a Cruze. But it's a whole different ballgame moving from a car to an SUV."

      Does Ford see the upcoming Ranger as a threat to the sales of the F-150? Joe Hinrichs, Ford's president of global operations says no.
      "There always will be some substitution, but this is more of a lifestyle vehicle for people who want to use it for different purposes. The F-150's gotten bigger over time and more expensive. We believe there's room now to slot the Ranger in very nicely in the showroom," he told Automotive yesterday at an event kicking off production of the Ranger.
      The new Ranger is quite expensive with the base XL SuperCab 2WD setting you back $25,395 with destination - higher than the Nissan Frontier ($19,965), Chevrolet Colorado ($21,495), and Toyota Tacoma ($24,480). But the biggest competitor to the Ranger might be the F-150. Despite a higher price ($29,650 for the XL Regular Cab 2WD), Ford is offering a number of incentives that can bring down the price of F-150 into Ranger territory. 
      But there is some good news for the Ranger, as interest in midsize trucks is rising. Automotive News reports that interest was increased 18 percent so far this year, a massive increase compared to the less than 1 percent in 2017.
