    I wish the dealership loaner was a 17 Pacifica & not a 17 Caravan. I know I wouldn't get a Caravan after driving it. Still need to test a Pac.
    There're a lot of issues with Honda too at the moment. The Odyssey stop sale is big news. I have a feeling that will help a lot in terms of December sales for FCA & the Pac.

    Depends on term and Luxury tax. That's the nice part about $9500 off... most 1500's pull under luxury where with $2500 off they aren't so lucky. Ive got one I am working on for a guy up in the Yukon (no PST) and its $40 less with the 0%

    I haven't driven a Pacifica yet, but got a ride in one the dealer was using as a shuttle when I took my Caravan in for an oil change and to get recalls done. My Caravan is a 2012, but it only has a little over 50k miles on it, and the Pacifica felt light years better than our Caravan.

    So what's the deal with the Promaster van? The sales seem to have fallen off a cliff. Is it because the USPS order is complete? I see those things everywhere lately, and in all manner of livery, post office, U-Haul, plumbers, UPS, Amazon, and others. It's also time Ram steps up their game and offers the Pacifica's PHEV system in the Promaster.

    Yeah, there's no doubt the Pacifica is a great vehicle.

    I see a lot of them around here. And I'm not talking L or LX models either. I've seen a handful of Hybrids in my town as well. Saw one just tonight on my way home from work.

    So, their website is a bit deceptive. I checked your store and it is more reasonable.

    FCA Canada Reports November 2017 Sales With Records for Ram Brand, Ram Trucks, Jeep® Wrangler and Chrysler Pacifica
    December 4, 2017 , Windsor, Ontario - November 2017 sales results are in for FCA Canada, with vehicles from the Ram, Jeep® and Chrysler brands marking record sales for the month and/or calendar-year-to-date. Overall, FCA Canada sales of 19,054 vehicles were down 8 per cent for the month, when compared with the sales results from November 2016.

    Sales Highlights
    Ram brand and Ram pickup trucks continue to haul in record sales for FCA Canada for both the month and year. The Ram brand saw its sales grow from 6,914 units in 2016, to 7,117 in November 2017, an increase of 3 per cent. Looking specifically at Ram pickup truck sales performance, 6,710 vehicles were sold in November 2017, compared with 6,542 sold during the same month, one year ago. So far this year, Ram brand sales are up 13 per cent; while Ram pickup truck sales are up 12 per cent, when compared with results from the same time period in 2016. Recently, Ram pulled the wraps off a new, special-edition 2018 Ram 1500 Hydro Blue Sport, which will be the final special-edition Sport the Ram brand will offer in the 2017 calendar year. Previously, Ram launched Sublime (Green) and Copper Sport limited-edition trucks earlier this year and an Ignition Orange edition in late 2016.

    Other highlights within the Ram brand include Ram ProMaster van with sales of 259 units, up 12 per cent from 231 vehicles sold in November 2016. Ram ProMaster City sales of 148 units are up 5 per cent compared with 141 sold during the same month, one year ago.

    Jeep has transformed into a truly global player, selling vehicles in more than 150 countries. An all-new version of the iconic Jeep Wrangler was unveiled just this week at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The new Wrangler, the most capable and recognized vehicle in the world, will offer even more legendary Jeep 4x4 capability, a modern design that stays true to the original, advanced fuel-efficient powertrains, more open-air options and will be loaded with safety features and advanced technology.

    November saw a monthly sales record for the current Jeep Wrangler with 1,797 vehicles sold in November 2017, up 65 per cent compared with 1,090 sold in the same month, one year ago. Other product highlights within the Jeep brand include Jeep Compass sales of 528, up 139 per cent from November 2016 and Jeep Grand Cherokee sales of 1,632, up 26 per cent from 1,299 vehicles sold in the same period last year.

    The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid was recently named the 2018 Best Car to Buy, according to greencarreports.com, a destination for information on green cars, electric cars, fuel-efficient cars and hybrid cars. Editors chose the most significant new green car available to shoppers during the 2018 model year, taking into account new technologies, their practicality and their impact on the environment. The Chrysler Pacifica – the most awarded minivan of 2016 and 2017 – delivers an unprecedented level of functionality, versatility, technology and bold styling ideally suited for today's families. For the month of November, sales of the Chrysler Pacifica were 441, up 17 per cent compared with 377 vehicles sold in the same month, one year ago. These results earn Chrysler Pacifica a monthly sales record.

    *Method of Determining Monthly Sales
    Beginning with the July 2016 sales report, FCA Canada sales numbers have been calculated using a new sales reporting methodology, which is described in more detail in the explanatory note issued on September 1, 2016. Sales by dealers are derived from the New Vehicle Delivery Report, or NVDR system and reported upon the first sale reported in the NVDR system. Under the new reporting methodology, fleet sales are recorded as sales upon shipment by FCA Canada of the vehicle to the customer or end user.

    Wondering if anyone else has heard this: I had a little trouble getting behind the wheel of a Quadrifoglio last week. I understand asking questions about what I currently own and owned prior to allowing a test drive....but once I'm an established sports car buyer...I'm there in a $70 Jeep SRT....lets get in the car and go.

    Once we were in the car, the salesman wouldn't take his hand off of the DNA mode selector. Only put it in race for a brief moment so I could hear the exhaust (don't get me started on that). That's not how you sell $82K sports cars. Mercedes taught everyone: sound sells cars.

    Next day I'm at Mercedes. Ask to drive a C63. 5 minutes later the salesman is telling me to do 0-60 pulls on some back roads.

    Reminds me of Ralph's complaints about Viper sales. They sit at Dodge dealers with velvet ropes around them.

    Let people drive the cars.

    The reason you see so many black wheels is because people like them and they sell.

    My favorite wheels from FCA US are chrome or machined finished, especially with black pockets... not everyone likes black but like @eggwhite93 said... that is what sells and just is the thread now. FCA US isn't the only manufacturer to do it.
