Did F or C sell best in ’19? (FCA US, platform by platform)

2019 Ram 5500 Chassis Cab

FCA US is an interesting mix of new and old platforms, some from DaimlerChrysler, some from Fiat, and some from Fiat Chrysler. Rather than looking at sales by brand, what happens when we look at sales by platform?

Starting from the newest, we have what used to be called SUSW, an adaptation of the old Fiat/GM SCSS, which underpins the Compass, Renegade, and 500X. Just looking at the Jeeps,

Power Dollars program extended on 2019 Challenger and Charger

Last week, we received messages from several readers who asked about the Dodge Power Dollars program. Posts in some Dodge-related social media groups suggested that the program had been extended, so we reached out to FCA for more information.

Remarkably, information being passed around the internet was accurate for a change – or at least it was somewhat accurate. We have confirmed with FCA that the Dodge Power Dollars program has been extended to the end of January,

50th Anniversary Edition Challenger celebrates golden anniversar

Only U.S. sales are considered in this story. Ford was the only automaker to wait until Monday to report sales.

First, the 2019 US sales totals: GM, 2.9 million; Toyota and Ford, 2.4 million; FCA, 2.2 million; Honda, 1.6 million.

Canadian sales: great for Ram, but… (Also, Mexico)

There is no doubt that 2019 was a great year for Ram in Canadian sales; the pickups/chassis cabs hit 96,763 sales, up 14% from an already good 2018. What’s more, ProMaster vans went up 8% and even the little City gained, from 543 to 725 sold.

Did Ram beat GM? and other FCA vs GM, Toyota, and Honda updates

Toyota reported slightly smaller sales, and is no longer even in contention for #2 in minivan sales; however, the RAV4 beat 400,000 again, and both Camry and Corolla beat 300,000 for the year.  Toyota was the best-selling brand in retail sales in the U.S. for 2019, but they were only around 180,000 sales ahead of FCA for the year with both retail and fleet combined.

GM reported 2.9 million sales in the United States for 2019,
