Healthier inventories for FCA

by David Zatz on

FCA closed out April with a worryingly high 84 days of inventory. In May, that dropped down to 71 days, between Ford (73) and GM (67).

There are still some worrying numbers, mainly the Chrysler 200 (96 days), Dodge Dart (92 days), and any Fiat (102 days overall). The Ram is at 100 days, but that’s in line with the Ford F-series (102) though far above the Chevrolet Silverado (83 days).

Pacifica inventories are now above those of the Town & Country, with 14,800 or so out there. Many of these may not have been prepped and gotten ready for sale yet, at the time the inventories were taken (May 31). If the Pacifica matches T&C sales, around 40 days of stock are in hand. It may sell somewhat more slowly at first, as customers go for deals on the 13,700 or so T&Cs still on lots.

Supplies are healthiest for the 300 (43 days), Wrangler (43), Durango (45), ProMaster (49), and Compass (53). There are around 67 days of inventory on the Patriot, as it gets supplanted by the Renegade. Supplies of the Renegade are now plentiful (78 days’ worth, or 35,000 Jeeps) which may help boost sales.

Retail sales leader Toyota has just 44 days of inventory on hand, while Honda and Nissan each have 56 days worth.
