    Biggest news of the day... Grand Caravan sales up 58% this past month over May 2016! So much for being outstaged by Pacifica!

    Ford only beat GM thanks to whooping 82K units were sold to the fleet/rental. The real answer to this, FORD is in deep trouble when now it is completely relying on fleet to carry its overall sales. GM has did in fact out pace FORD based on a lower 45k units to fleet/rentals. It showing problem within.

    "Ford sold a total of 241,126 vehicles in May while GM sold 237,364. However, Ford sold 82,844 vehicles to fleet buyers compared with GM's fleet sales of 45,976 vehicles. But on a retail basis Ford sold 158,282 vehicles and was easily outsold by GM, which sold 191,388."

    The Dodge figures have to be taken in the context of last year's shortages, but yes...

    Ford and Nissan are really pushing fleet sales. FCA still has too much of that, but at least they pulled back from rentals. With Ford it's hard to tell if the fleet sales are profitable - selling to huge ranches might be fleet but it's still profit. Selling to police departments, not so much. (Surprised so many police buyers forgave Ford for jacking up prices so much when they were the only RWD game in town.)

    GM does seem to be stronger than Ford for the long term now, but Ford still has more blind buyer loyalty...

    FCA retail went up slightly.

    Anyone notice Alfa Romeo Giulia is doing OK?

    I noted it with Alfa. It is great design and people love the lil gem. Even I would have purchased one but I am a beast and will never return to the Viper seating.

    Giulia is still "the new kid in town" and is pleasantly surprising in execution - to prospective buyers. So it has that going for it. Can't wait to see Stelvio add to the bottom line for AR.

    Rather be, conservatively down, - one point - than trying to beat out the guy in front of you (GM) with fleet sales.

    And FCA did beat Toyota minus Lexus!

    Grand Cherokee; BAMB! Wrangler; BAMB! Journey; BAMB! Caravan; BAMB! Durango; BAMB! Pacifica; BAMB! Among others..

    When is that Pacifica trim level (SXT?) that will include popular options, at a few G's less than the highest trim, coming out? That should help sales too.

    Yes. 47K year to date sounds like it's going to be a good year for Pacifica. Also, Grand Cherokee at 96K YTD - wow.
