FCA Brands Have Best Sales in Decade
The numbers for June 2016 are in and the FCA US LLC division has reported a 7-percent sales increase in comparison to the sales in June 2015. Not only that, but several brands have had better sales this June than ever before.
– Jeep increased sales by 17%, with four vehicles recording their best sales ever
– Ram Truck increased by 14%, marking last June as their best in the last decade
– Dodge brand increased by 3%, their best June sales in the last two years
With Jeep hitting its 75th Anniversary this year, and its military-influenced special-edition vehicles available on their entire lineup, it’s no surprise that the best June sales were recorded for the Jeep Wrangler, Jeep Patriot, Jeep Compass, and Jeep Renegade. Overall, this is the 33rd-consecutive month where Jeep has gained profits over its preceding year.
Ram Truck had the best sales in the last decade, with the Ram ProMaster City having its best sales ever. Last month, the limited-edition Mopar ‘16 Ram Rebel was also introduced. With only 500 available, July may result in another sales increase for Ram.
In the last decade, the Dodge Durango had its best June sales, an increase of 38 percent, which were the best June sales in the last decade. In comparison to June sales between 2015 and 2016 sales of the Dodge Grand Caravan increased by 79 percent. Overall, Dodge had a 3-percent increase last month. Dodge also announced and released the final editions of the Dodge Viper, all of which sold out in a matter of days.
Chrysler had high hopes for the Pacifica when it was released this year, and the Pacifica’s sales last month were impressive — over 7,000 vehicles were sold in June alone. In addition, U.S. News & World Report recently announced the Pacifica as the No. 1 ranked minivan in the industry.
