  • Best third quarter ever for Jeep Gladiator; total sales up 2%, retail sales up 3%
  • Ram ProMaster Van total sales up 26%; best third quarter ever for retail sales
  • Dodge Durango best calendar year-to-date retail sales since 2005
  • Alfa Romeo total sales up 14% calendar year-to-date
October 1, 2021 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - FCA US LLC reported U.S. total sales for the quarter were 410,917 vehicles compared with 507,351 for the same period in 2020. Retail sales were 348,084 vehicles for the quarter. Fleet accounted for 15% of total sales.

“While the various supply chain issues facing our industry continue to impact available inventory, we know the demand for our vehicles is still there,” said U.S. Head of Sales Jeff Kommor. “Calendar year-to-date, total sales improved 3% versus this time last year.”

During the quarter, Jeep® Gladiator recorded its best third quarter ever as total sales rose 2% year-over-year to 22,674 vehicles. Grand Cherokee total sales rose 45% year-over-year to 81,704 vehicles. Retail sales rose 47%, resulting in its second-best third quarter since 1993.

The all-new 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee, including an electrified 4xe version, made its debut earlier in the week. This fifth-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee builds on a legacy as the most awarded SUV ever, shattering expectations by bringing the most technologically advanced, luxurious and 4x4-capable Jeep Grand Cherokee yet.

Ram Promaster Van, the no-compromise benchmark for durability, efficiency, connectivity and safety features, delivered its best third-quarter retail sales ever with 20,168 vehicles.

The Dodge brand continues to demonstrate its proven performance, as the Dodge Durango delivered its best year-to-date retail sales since 2005.

Chrysler 300 total sales increased 27% to 14,631 vehicles versus last year.

Wranglers are down for the quarter, but still up for the year. That's pretty good considering national inventory is down a lot.

Yikes. Gladiator and Wrangler sales about equal to all of Chrysler and Dodge. Wonder if the new Dutch overlords will whack some weak sister brands soon.

Gotta love the marketing spin on that piece.

Below is a wider view of US auto sales.

The reality is the Japanese and the Koreans are grabbing market share from the domestics. Toyota overtook Ford as America's best-selling brand earlier this year, after 10 years of Ford being in the top spot.

Jeep itself doesn't look all that hot.

Mercedes, Jaguar and Land Rover haven't reported Q3 figures yet, but the total numbers are not going to change much.

Jeeps never been the big sales leader. And screw Ford, Toyota makes a better vehicle.

These numbers would probably be more interesting if comp'd to 2019, pre-Covid. The first 9 months of 2020 were quite a cluster given the Covid impact, and it looks like a good number of these manufacturers are beating last year's numbers, and soundly so (which is sort of to be expected, even with reduced inventories). Really wonder what the '21 to '19 comparison looks like.

When I was at my Jeep dealer a few weeks ago, they had nothing to sell. When I bought mine the year before in September, I had plenty of Wranglers to pick from. This year the sales lot is barren. They can't sell what they don't have.

I’m surprised Tesla’s numbers are that good this year.

You shouldn't be. Tesla ramped up production at their China factory, which is now serving most of the export markets, leaving Tesla Freemont factory to send more supplies to the domestic market.

And being in China, that factory was less disrupted by chips and other component shortages, since they are all made in Asia any way.

With the Berlin and Austin factories coming on line, 2022 will be even faster (by units) growth. Tesla is putting a ton of hurt on Jaguar, BMW, Audi, Mercedes, Lexus, etc.
