Yes, because so much is based on Ram... and the prices are high enough... and I assume they will increase in sales... and they will h ave a Dodge or Chrysler equivalent at some point. But I'm wondering how long lived they will be given CAFE and such.
As I see it, the only way Wagoneer / Grand Wagoneer can continue into the medium / long term is by becoming 100% BEV.

I just can't see how CAFE lends itself to any other conclusion.

Dave:
I didn't get to watch the entirety of this morning's webcast with "Carlos Tavares & Friends".

Did anyone on the webcast mention an actual number of vans involved in this Amazon agreement?

Don't. They're selling cars now for ten times the profit they used to get, so their bonuses are at historic levels. Car dealership profits broke a record in 2021.

Turns out selling one car for $5,000 profit is more profitable than selling five cars for $500 profit per car, and pre-selling cars before they arrive at the dealership saves a lot of money on floor-plan loans.
Hmmmmmm......Sergio's old chestnut of margins over volume......only carried out to its most ridiculous absurd extreme.

Auto sales has never been thought of highly to start with......And now this asinine behavior will only serve to strengthen the movement to do away with the dealership model altogether!

And I thought NFL Football team owners were a vile disgusting greedy bunch! 💲 💲 💲
