    300, Grand Cherokee, most Ram trim levels.

    There are many more vehicles with silver wheels than black. Look at all the Rams, Chryslers, and Jeeps. Dodge is the only brand to have such a dark lineup of wheels, but that also matches its performance aspirations.

    I can’t find chrome wheels on anything but Ram.

    Yes, but chrome trim was mentioned as well. Grilles, window trim, door handles, mirrors...

    And I don't understand why they don't at least offer a silver option for each trim for those customers who prefer it. It's not like the dark wheels improve performance.

    And gloss black wheels are worse than silver wheels for showing brake dust (because brake dust isn’t really black).

    I don't like the black wheels either unless it is on a High Impact color like Sublime or Plum Crazy but on something like a Black Truck and black wheels it just doesn't do it for me. Wheel are supposed to compliment the exterior styling not degrade the look.

    perhaps the guy responsible for all the black rims on these cars is walking around world headquarters looking down at his phone and wearing tan shoes with his dark pants....lol

    100% agree. At least offer chrome/silver as an option. Wouldn't think that would be that tough to do.

    My dealership sells more new FCA product in a month than Fiat can muster annually in Canada. Why is Fiat still here?

    The numbers @redriderbob shared for Canada are indicative of where our product is in their cycles - 2015 was a record year for FCA in Canada, our product was fresh, Cherokee had just overcome its first model year hiccups, and we had 200s and Darts to appeal to the small sedan market.

    The new Ram, refreshed Cherokee, Caravan being axed, and new Wrangler are genuinely tied to my financial security, which, is kind of freaky haha...

    When speaking with a sales rep (high performer) from our Fiat dealership in my autogroup recently I asked if there were any rumblings about getting Alfa/Maserati in the Fiat dealership. FCA apparently wants a $5Shmillion dollar reno before they would even consider providing Alfa/Maserati.

    Ain't no dealer is going to shell out $5Shmill into their starving Fiat dealerships, there's no way the return on investment for the 2 brands would come at a reasonable time.
