Most all brands are expected to have bad numbers. Ford has ten of thousands of trucks sitting around waiting on chips
edit: my other thought was in a brand with the two leading iconic models having the highest msrp markups- this must surely play a part???

Cherokee, the smaller one, had production suspended due to Chip Shortages much of the past 6 months; Compass was down for 5-6 months in 2021 so inventory at dealerships was much less.

Why is Fiat even a brand for the US market still?

Also, how did Dodge record a sale of a single Dart? Didn't they stop making those in 2016? A dealership really had a 6yr old Dart sitting on the lot as "New" still?

Not to mention dealers wanting +10-15k MSRP over I can see why the numbers drop.

Keep in mind they were making the old style Grand Cherokee (WK) and selling a ton of them that were sitting around waiting on chips. Also, they have the WL 3 row selling like crazy. So, GC volume available to sell was double the normal. Now WK is done and plant getting re-tooled for the WL 2-row GC. Sales will stumble in Q2 as the inventory of WL will only be 3-row. The WK may still be ok if the chips keep coming.

At my Chevy garage around 2015 we had a brand new Trailblazer come in still under the 3 year 36,000 mil warranty. It was a 2007 I think. It was sold in 2014 or around that time. The selling dealer had the dealership taken away in 2008 and hadn’t sold the car.
