  • Automakers are pushing new investment and job growth in the U.S.
    24 Jan 2017

    Detroit automakers are pushing new investment in U.S. production of trucks, crossovers and SUVs to tap into the higher profit margins these vehicles yield. They make an awful lot of money. Automakers spend about the same amount to make a vehicle, whether it’s a crossover or truck or sedan.   Yet a full-size pickup truck has an average transaction price of almost $40,000. A large SUV has a transaction price of $58,000 and even a mid-size crossover moves off the dealership at nearly $35,000. But the average transaction price of a compact sedan is less than $19,000 and a mid-size ...

  • FCA delays Grand Wagoneer and redesigned heavy-duty pickup trucks
    12 Dec 2016

    Fiat Chrysler dealers will have to wait a bit longer for two highly anticipated big-ticket vehicles: a fully redesigned Ram heavy-duty pickup and a luxury SUV for Jeep, the Grand Wagoneer. It became clear that FCA's Ram brand will not redesign its current heavy-duty pickups onto its new DT pickup platform in 2018 but instead will keep the same body-in-white and refresh the existing DS-based model.  Meanwhile, the automaker has placed a hold on its development of the Jeep Grand Wagoneer luxury SUV. The vehicle has been on Jeep's product plan since 2014 and was to boast three r...

  • Chrysler recalls 88,888 vehicles for two separate issues
    20 Nov 2016

    Chrysler announced a pair of recalls for the Dodge Dart, Durango, and Jeep Grand Cherokee. They're unrelated, as the Dart recall concerns windshield washer pumps, and the Durango and Grand Cherokee recall is for fuel rails. But the number of cars involved in both totals up to 88,888 cars, which is rather bizarre.  Breaking down the coincidental number, we first have 34,633 2016 Dodge Durangos and Jeep Grand Cherokees recalled because fasteners on the intake manifold can come into contact with the fuel rail on some vehicles. This could lead to a fuel leak, and a subsequent fire ha...

  • October U.S. auto sales fell 6% despite the discounts
    01 Nov 2016

    Despite the increased consumer discounts on so many popular models, U.S. auto sales fell approximately 6%. The seasonally adjusted annualized rate including an estimate of sales by No. 2 U.S. automaker Ford Motor Co showed sales at 17.9 million.  General Motors Co October sales fell a less-than-forecast 1.7%. Sales of its smaller pickups and big SUVs surged while sedan sales fell. U.S. vice president of Nissan brand sales for Nissan Motor Co said favorable economic factors point to strong sales in the remainder of 2016. This year is likely to end slightly below last year's record...

  • Here are the issues which held down FCA's earnings
    24 Oct 2016

    The low margins of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and it high leverage position might have taken a toll on its stock in 2Q16. The company is now trading at massive YTD losses. FCAU reported adjusted EPS (earnings per share) of 0.45 euros in 2Q16, or $0.51, which is about 55% higher than its adjusted EPS in 2Q15.  This figure was also higher than the analysts’ estimate of 0.39 euros, or $0.43. However, on the day of its 2Q16 earnings release, the company’s stock fell 4.3%. Stagnation in the company’s 2Q16 revenues and shipments, along with concerns over the growth potenti...
