Stellantis Gross sales Are Tanking, Of us

Stellantis introduced second-quarter gross sales figures for its manufacturers below Fiat Chrysler Vehicles, and the information is not good. Double-digit drops are in all places, with two very curious exceptions. All of the Detroit-based manufacturers are down, however the Italians—notably Fiat and Alfa Romeo—are up.

Ram suffered the most important blow, falling 26 p.c for Q2. A complete of 90,100 vehicles and 15,369 ProMaster vans had been offered from April via June. The Promaster Metropolis, which ended manufacturing in 2022, nonetheless had seven gross sales. General, Ram’s yearly efficiency matches Q2 with a 26 p.c drop. That would change for the higher because the refreshed 2025 Ram 1500 pickup reaches dealerships later within the 12 months.

Jeep and Chrysler each had 19-percent year-over-year drops. The decreases aren’t totally surprising, particularly at Chrysler, which solely builds on automotive: The Pacifica. A complete of 37,786 had been offered, a 16-percent drop for the minivan. And we proceed to bid the useless 300 farewell with 1,998 gross sales, down 53 p.c.

It is a comparable story at Jeep with the canceled Cherokee and Renegade, dragging percentages down. However in-production automobiles had been down too, specifically the Wrangler at 17 p.c, Gladiator at 24 p.c, and the Grand Cherokee—Jeep’s best-selling car at 52,296 models—down 26 p.c. Solely the Wagoneer household saved issues from being worse, logging a 24-percent improve for the expensive Grand Wagoneer and a 107-percent soar for the usual model.

Dodge can also be in a transition part, falling 17 p.c. The Challenger is useless however 11,480 nonetheless discovered houses within the second quarter, a drop of simply 11 p.c. The present-generation Charger can also be out of manufacturing, resulting in its important 34-percent decline with 16,216 offered. The Durango fell 9 p.c to 17,792 models because it nears its end-of-production date. The one mannequin at the moment in Dodge’s lineup not exiting manufacturing is the Hornet, nevertheless it’s not precisely fashionable. Solely 4,299 had been offered within the second quarter.

Now for some excellent news, full with a wholesome dose of irony. Alfa Romeo posted a gross sales improve of eight p.c for Q2 because of 887 gross sales of the Tonale. Sure, Alfa’s model of the Dodge Hornet helped the Italian firm eke out a optimistic quarter, offsetting Giulia and Stelvio gross sales, which fell 24 and 29 p.c. After which we get to plucky Fiat, posting an astounding 119 p.c year-over-year gross sales soar. Do not get too excited, although. The corporate offered 163 500s this 12 months in comparison with only one (sure, one) final 12 months.

We suspect there are some involved executives within the company halls of FCA’s Auburn Hills headquarters proper now. With new merchandise for Ram and Dodge coming quickly, it’s going to be attention-grabbing to see if these numbers flip round at the very least considerably within the second half of the 12 months.
