Jeep sales fell 3% last month, along with every FCA US brand except Ram. FCA US sales fell by 1% overall, despite a 23% increase in incentive spending that took FCA's average to $4,302, the highest of the major automakers.


The domestic brands only fell by 0.3%, but Fiat brands plunged by 30%.  Car sales dropped by a full quarter (25%), while minivan deliveries fell by 6%. Crossover and SUV sales declined by 3%, with only the Dodge Journey, Jeep Grand Cherokee. and Jeep Patriot beating their numbers from last September.

The bright spot was a 29% jump in Ram pickup sales; there was also a 17% gain in deliveries of the ProMaster van, and, ironically (given higher incentives), an estimated 4% increase in average transaction prices.

FCA is still king of the hill when it comes to crossover and SUV sales. and Jeep is still the best-selling crossover-SUV brand. The company’s domestic brands even gained market share, as the overall market fell by 0.7%.  Ford dropped by 8% and GM was essentially stable, with a 0.6% fall. Honda stayed within 100 sales of September 2015, and Toyota gained 1.5%.

Fleet sales accounted for 24% of FCA sales last month.

Despite the drop, 2016, as a whole, should still see more FCA US sales than 2015; year-to-date deliveries remain 4% ahead of 2015 year-to-date.
