Same thing was said on Wranglerforum around 2013, 2014 and 2015. It never happened…
Were JKs selling at these numbers? JL has been doing close to 20k almost every month, if I remember correctly.

Wrangler capacity has been more constrained than Gladiator’s. Wrangler inventories have been tighter and prices higher.

I can see a chunk of buyers opting for a Gladiator after being unable to get a Wrangler.
I went ahead and ordered both in Q2 so I did my part.

I bought my ecodiesel jlu in June, so I was part of the Q2 sales as well. I looked at the door seal and my jl was built in 06/21 as well. The dealership must have just received mine, plus it only had 12 miles on it when I purchased it.

maybe not comparatively to other brands. But Jeep really doesn’t have the variety of models most of the big hitters do. The thing to look at is Jeep accounts for almost 40% of Stellantis sales. It’s probably the safest brand under their growth strategy, followed by ram. In ten years what we know as Chrysler will probably be Jeep and Ram.

Straight axle. That’s what separates the wrangler. A real front axle. People know the difference. The only SUV on the market with a solid front axle is killing it in sales. The competition will tell you their market research says no. people want IFS and a smooth ride. Sales tell the real story
True but the quality will never be improved by FCA if people are willing to pay huge money for these. And they are riddled with many many QC issues. Can’t even paint then right.

Total US market grows 22% and your Jeep brand grows 13%.

seemingly not something to crow about.

The managers of the Ram brand, on the other hand, should be very pleased.

FCA outsold Ford. I wonder if that has ever happened before? Ford seems to have screwed up quite a bit more than anyone else with the chip shortages.

I would like to see 2019 numbers vs 2021 since 2020 was so historically different.

I think you are very wrong. It's my belief that most people buying a wrangler have no desire or even knowledge of the fact that a wrangler has a solid front axle. The people buying wranglers are buying it because of it's name, because of how it looks, the removable top, the history, the image, etc.

Most individuals will NEVER take their wranglers off-roading, this forum should have taught you that by now. Solid axles are complete trash compared to IFS for daily driven ROAD vehicles. No one in their right mind would even try to argue that IFS is less comfortable, on road, than solid axle. All the sales numbers prove is people dont give a shit about IFS or Solid Axle, they want a Wrangler.
