Total sales up 32%

Retail sales up 27%

Strong sales results for Jeep®, Ram, Dodge, Chrysler and Alfa Romeo brands

Jeep delivers second best ever Q2 U.S. retail sales

Jeep Wrangler – Best quarter ever for U.S. retail sales

Jeep Wrangler 4xe – No. 1 best-selling plug-in hybrid

Jeep Gladiator – Best quarter ever for U.S. retail and total sales

Dodge Durango – Best second quarter for U.S. retail sales since 2005

Ram total sales rose 47% year-over-year

Chrysler total sales rose 36% year-over-year

Alfa Romeo total sales rose 34% year-over-year

July 1, 2021 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - Driven by strong consumer demand for Jeep®, Ram, Dodge, Chrysler and Alfa Romeo brand vehicles, FCA US LLC reported a 32% increase in second-quarter sales over the same time period a year earlier. Retail sales rose 27% for the quarter. Fleet accounted for 12% of total sales.

“The recovering U.S. economy and continued strong demand for our products drove unprecedented results,” U.S. Head of Sales Jeff Kommor said. “We continue to work closely with our suppliers to mitigate the manufacturing impacts caused by the various supply chain issues facing our industry.”

The Jeep brand continues its trailblazing performance, recording a 19% increase in total sales year-over-year, and its second best ever second quarter for U.S. retail sales. Wrangler recorded its best quarter ever for U.S. retail sales, while Gladiator posted its best quarter ever for U.S. retail sales, as well as U.S. total sales with 29,962 vehicles.

The Jeep lineup continues to grow. Since the full launch of the Wrangler 4xe earlier this year, it quickly became the No. 1 best-selling plug-in hybrid in the marketplace. In June, the all-new 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L, the first ever three-row Grand Cherokee, began making its way to dealerships. An all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee two-row and its 4xe electrified version is scheduled to debut later in 2021.

The Ram brand was also a bright spot during the quarter, delivering 187,750 total sales, a 47% increase on a year-over-year basis. Ram pickup trucks rose 40%, while the Ram ProMaster Van and ProMaster City drove 129% and 132% increases in total sales, respectively, over the prior year.

Powered by Challenger, Charger and Durango, Dodge brand total sales rose 42% year-over year. Separately, total sales of Challenger rose 52%, Charger rose 95%, and Durango rose 53%. The second quarter was also the best ever quarter for total sales of the Challenger Scat Pack and Charger Scat Pack, and the best retail second quarter for Durango since 2005. The Brotherhood of Muscle will grow stronger on Saturday, August 14, as thousands of automotive enthusiasts attend this year’s ultimate car festival of legal street racing, Roadkill Nights Powered by Dodge at M1 Concourse in Pontiac, Michigan.

Total sales of the Chrysler brand increased 36% to 18,900 vehicles compared to Q2 of last year, driven by the Chrysler 300 and Chrysler Pacifica. The Pacifica Hybrid, the minivan segment’s first-ever hybrid vehicle and the only plug-in hybrid minivan, also recorded its best ever second quarter total sales.

As Alfa Romeo celebrates its 111th anniversary, the brand marked yet another reason to celebrate as its second-quarter U.S. total sales rose 34% over Q2 of the prior year. The Stelvio SUV increased 38%, the Giulia sedan increased 31% and the Alfa 4C increased 8%.

Stellantis will share its electrification strategy on Thursday, July 8, at 2:30 p.m. CEST / 8:30 a.m. EDT during its EV Day 2021 hosted by Stellantis Chief Executive Officer Carlos Tavares. Details for accessing the event, along with the supporting materials, will be available under the Investors section of the Stellantis corporate website at www.stellantis.com. A recorded replay will be accessible on the Group’s corporate website.

Where are people finding Challengers to buy? There are none around here, except a few fully loaded, high buck ones.

Wrangler and Gladiator are kicking butt, with zero reported disruptions from chip shortage.
RAM and Silverado nearly identical sales 164,232 (RAM) 164,731(Chevy)…
But Silverado number includes 3,025 “Medium Duties” (4500 HD,5500HD, 6500HD). (Silverado 161,706

Finally, GM is already 3rd in U.S. Manufacturing importance with a smaller factory workforce than both Ford and Stellantis. Now GM is set be surpass by Toyota in United States Marketshare: Toyota tops GM sales in the U.S., expected to be America's best-selling automaker

This is why they don't need to undercut themselves with a smaller Ram pickup. The smaller Ram pickup is not going to happen. They are minting money with the Gladiator/Wrangler.
With Ford doing Bronco Pickup, do you think Ford runs the risk of squeezing the Ranger(Maverick and Bronco Pickup)?
That’s why after RAM capacity gets address, I believe Ridgeline (better executed & designed of course) is a better target.

They don’t care about Canada other than giving them a stripped down DS/DT and Pacifica, I mean, Voyager.

Canada has not seen ASPs increase in the last 10 years like the US, not even close.

Again, they’re not going to build a small pickup. It’s not going to happen.

This is not the Chrysler of the 90s. The only reason the Dodge Hornet was greenlit was to increase Italian plant utilization.

if you want to have an understanding of future product, watch what they do with KM and Brampton.

Good numbers.
Compared to what, 2020? When vehicle sales tanked. Misleading stats. Show the pre pandemic numbers from 2019 for a real comparison of sales, I mean just about every sales stat is up over 2020.

The Gladiator and Wrangler numbers are exceptional, and the ASPs on those are sky high. Highest they've ever been. I'm honestly worried that this isn't sustainable, that the recession will come and that things will cool off. But to be honest, I've been saying that since 2013 - the Fed's ability to prop things up with liquidity has been historic. FCA/Stellantis has made the most of this sky high ASP environment. Ford has not.

Ram was the #1 pickup vs. F150 and Silverado (albeit, Silverado + Sierra take the #1 spot if you combine the two). That's pretty darn good.

Things I want to see in the 2nd of this year - Grand Cherokee L making a serious dent in the FWD (why anyone would spend this much money on a FWD vehicle, I will never understand) seven passenger offerings from GM - Traverse, Enclave, and Acadia.

Grand Wagoneer making a serious dent in Tahoe, Yukon, Suburban, Escalade sales.

Continued growth from Ram.

You have to realize - this is the first time Jeep/Ram has EVER had a fully built out lineup competing at the high end with GM - I'm talking pickups, body on frame SWB and LWB SUVs (LWB Grand Wagoneer will come next year), Wrangler, pickup via Gladiator...PHEV variants for all the high end vehicles are coming in the next 12-18 months to hedge any potential increase in gas prices...the future for Stellantis North America is exceptionally bright, and I want to see them win and steal GM's sales, because Barra is an idiot with this full BEV crap.

Covering both the entry level seven passenger offering vehicle with Durango and a higher end seven passenger offering with Grand Cherokee L is huge. Same goes for Grand Wagoneer vs. Tahoe/Suburban/Yukon/Escalade. To be fair - I really like the look of the new Yukon AT4; GM nailed that one.

Ford will muddle along, because the US has a long historic connection to Ford.

On top of what you well stated about Mary, GM has been unsuccessful at commercialization of EV’s.
Stellantis pricing gives it the ability to do EV’s spins on product that’s inline with brand’s attributes.

GMC Hummer and Tesla Cybertruck are “freak show “ pickups that are well beyond lifestyle Pickup’s like Gladiator and (Tesla and Hummer) will have trouble selling in year 3 of production.

The Hummer EV has a 10,500 lb. GVW and a 1,500lb. payload. With its brick shape and acceleration focused power train, it will probably have poor high speed cruising ability.

Ford has made a lot of BEV and hybrid promises with the both the Lightning and Maverick trucks. They had better deliver close to the prices and availability spoken of in the introductions.

Ram has to break out from the P0 mild hybrid to having P2 mild hybrids as well as a PHEV option. Otherwise Ram will have a very short future. We should know more Thursday.

I agree with you on this but PSA wants the same. Phase put of all current PHEVs by 2029 so that 2030 will be the year when only high voltage electrification tech on sale by STLA will be BEV. And they plan to sell 30 or 35% od BEVs in US in 2030.
This all means that some planned vehicles for PHEV adoption will not see it and that some future vehicles like future large cars will not see it at all. Only BEV!

I hate it.

I know. My hope is that even with BEV incentives in Europe they will see that only a small percentage of the population can afford or wants EV, and that BEV adoption in Europe plateaus at 15 or 20%. This would maybe have them think twice about full BEV in North America by 2030.

California asking people to reduce electricity consumption after telling people to buy BEV. Stupidity.

Not possible since the shift to electrified or no-local-emission passenger cars is a legal obligation from 2030/2035 in Europe and elsewhere. So either customers take the new products or sales will simply shrink because consumers will pause new purchases as long as possible. It's not so much about personal preferences of the company leaders. Have a look at other car company future plans: Audi will only introduce BEV from 2026 already. Renault plans to sell 90% BEV until 2030. Let's hope BEV tech develops fast and prices go down!

You know. Maybe Green-Yellow movements across the Europe will lose momentum. I hope so.

Haven't BEV sales outside of Norway/Netherlands largely been flat 2021 vs 2020? I'm pretty sure German BEV sales have been been flat or only slightly up 2021 vs. 2020
