- Chrysler's (FIATY) performance in the U.S. was strong in November as the automaker saw new models perform well. Truck sales during the month rose 26% to 108,308 units while car sales fell 7% to 33,967.
- Brand sales growth: Ram +25%; Chrysler +12%; Dodge +4%; Fiat -15%; Jeep +30%.
- The automaker saw broad sales increases with Jeep as the Grand Cherokee, Wrangler, Patriot, and Compass models each knocked out Y/Y gains. The Town & Country minivan was also a hot seller during the month, up 70% Y/Y to 11,288 units.
- An inventory level of 91 days supply hasn't gone unnoticed by analysts as Chrysler now has more pressure to either sell like mad in December and January or trim late-year production.
