Thumbs up Can Jeep sell 1 million vehicles this year????

I say YES...and according the Sergio...that is their new goal. I think with the addition of the 2014 Cherokee....jeep will surpass 1 million vehicles pretty easy. As of Dec.31....jeep has sold 494,454 suv's and that's only includes 2 months of Cherokee sales. Cherokee sales for Nov. were 10,738. Dec. sales were up to 15,038. Total sales for Jeep in Dec. were 53,275. The Cherokee has moved into the second spot among Jeeps for sales and third in ALL of ChryCo/Fiat. I really expect the Cherokee to pass the Grand Cherokee in sales sometime this spring. I am also being told that sales of the Grand Cherokee are still held back due to a bottleneck at JNAP. Maybe some of our insiders can speak to the "bottleneck" rumor more.

What does "bottleneck" refer to? Backed up orders?

Re: Can Jeep sell 1 million vehicles this year????

I think its limited capacity. From my knowledge...jeep could sell ALOT more GC's overseas and they CANNOT meet the production demand under current conditions at JNAP. Maybe some of the JNAP guys can speak more on this.

Interesting. Hmmm. I hope Jeep can... I would like to it gain massive momentum. It's definitely on the right track.

Re: Can Jeep sell 1 million vehicles this year????

I assume you talking 1M global sales? If so, maybe.

Chrysler's Jeep brand has set an all-time record with 731,565 global sales in 2013

It would just break my heart if Jeep had to open another plant to meet demand in a long term trend--NOT. Hopefully Fiat might see a business opportunity available by spending a bit of money to hire more people in Detroit to meet the demand.

Unfortunately, if vehicles ain't available, the competition sometimes gets wind of that and goes after disappointed would-be buyers.

Re: Can Jeep sell 1 million vehicles this year????

Back when we saw the first pictures of the new Cherokee and so many people were saying that Sergio was crazy, I said I liked it, and thought it would be a good seller. I wasn't expecting the numbers being reported, at least not so soon.

Now I'm really pissed we won't be seeing an IPO.

Re: Can Jeep sell 1 million vehicles this year????

I think so if they make improvements to the Compass and Patriot models like they have with the GC and Libery/Cherokee. I do wonder if Cherokee sales can maintain the levels they have been posting. It's a new vehicle offering a lot of improvements over the out going model for a very fair price, but so was the Dart and it's been selling well below what they expected.

Re: Can Jeep sell 1 million vehicles this year????

Might be nice if the worked on their quality control issues first instead of shooting for 1 million vehicles sold worldwide. Thats just more money for Sergio and his friends back in Italy. Jeep will never see these profits in R&D money.

Your comment make no sense at all. Probably because you don't know what your talking about. Do you think those sales would be possible without any R&D money?

It's been this way since 2010.

This is not false... not by the slightest.

We seriously, absolutely, CANNOT build 1 more Grand Cherokee than we build right now.

Period.

Hire more people? Useless. The LineŽ can't be run any faster than it is already. It just can't. We're actually building too fast as it is right now... stuff is starting to break on a regular basis. Robots, conveyors, PEOPLE... vehicles FALLING off the line in the paint shop... it's bad here.
