    Method of Determining FCA US LLC’s Monthly Sales. FCA US’s reported vehicle sales represent unit sales of vehicles to retail customers, deliveries of vehicles to fleet customers and to others such as FCA US’s employees and retirees as well as vehicles used for marketing. Most of these reported sales reflect retail sales made by dealers out of their own inventory of vehicles previously purchased by them from FCA US. Reported vehicle units sales do not correspond to FCA US’s reported revenues, which are based on FCA US’s sale and delivery of vehicles, and typically recognized upon shipment to the dealer or end customer.

    This time a year ago, JL was going to production and many buyers were holding off to see what the new JL model was going to be like in person, which is why JK sales in November '17 were likely a little lower.

    Wow, that's a pretty solid upswing for the JL! Any increase in November sales would have been good news, but 20% is impressive. That combined with the excitement of the JT launch has me bullish on Jeep for 2019. As long as gas prices don't shoot back the other way, and interest rates stay relatively tame, Jeep's numbers next year could be completely insane...

    On the other hand, Jeep prices may be just plain ugly by the end of next year, as if they weren't already...

    My understanding is they don’t count until you take delivery. The method is described in the article but still a little vague

    Anybody notice that YTD Chrysler is down 10%, Fiat is down 41%, Ram and Dodge are almost flat? Guess people really are switching to SUV's so no surprise the Wrangler is selling better. FCA as a whole is up 8% YTD.

    Canadian sales summary shows a different trend from US sales.

    It would be nice to see the break down of JL Wranglers sold YTD in regards to 2 door vs 4 door, 2.0 vs 3.6, auto vs MT and all of the different trim levels
