FCA US sales climbed in June

by Bill Cawthon on

FCA US, the former Chrysler, reported sales of 185,035 cars and light trucks in June, an 8% increase over last June and the best June since 2006. It was also the 63rd consecutive month of sales growth as Chrysler, Jeep, and Ram all advanced.

Chrysler brand had the highest growth, coming in 28% ahead of last year as the 200 posted a triple-digit increase. Sales of the Town and Country, which resumed production last month, still lags, but the margin was smaller. The 300 had its best June since 2013.

Seven new records were set last month. The Dodge Journey had its best sales month ever, while the Chrysler 200, Jeep Wrangler, Jeep Cherokee, Jeep Patriot, Dodge Challenger, and Ram ProMaster all finished the month with June sales records.

Jeep set another sales record with a 25% increase. That’s 21 months of continuous growth for the Jeep brand.

Ram Truck brand sales rose 2%, enough to make last month the best June in the history of the Ram brand, which began in 2007.

The company finished the month of June with a 78-day supply of inventory (577,522 units).

Dodge sales were down as the legacy of the Avenger and the Grand Caravan factory closure hit; they were partly offset by the Challenger’s fifth sales record so far this year and best-ever sales of the Journey.  Fiat sales fell 30% but decent supplies of the new 500X are on their way.

Bill Cawthon grew up in the auto industry in the 1950s. His Dad worked for Chrysler and Bill spent a number of Saturdays down on the plant floor at Dodge Main in Hamtramck. Bill is also the U.S. market correspondent for just-auto.com, a British auto industry publication, and a member of the Texas Auto Writers Association, which has named the Jeep Grand Cherokee the “SUV of Texas” several times and named the Ram 1500 as the “Truck of Texas” two years running.

Bill has owned five Plymouths (including the only 1962 “Texan”), one Dodge and one Chrysler and is still trying to figure out how to justify a Wrangler. He also has owned at least one of every 1:87 scale model of a Chrysler product. You can reach him directly at (206) 888-7324 or by using the form.
