I found it very interesting that through May 2018, Jeep has sold more SUVs than the entire car lines of Toyota and Lexus combined.

408,033 vs. 389,951

This time last year Toyota/Lexus cars were up by about 85,000 units over Jeep.

It appears people like them, a lot. We're happy with both of our Jeeps and sooner or later be buying another one.

I thought Sergio turned them around?

That is crazy though. I'm hesitant to read the tea leaves and predict the death of the sedan, but it sure ain't looking good. First Ford bails, now Toyota sedans are falling behind Jeep sales. Who would have thought?

These products are all new every year?? They are a revolution!!! Razor blades, mens shirts, TVs, wiper blades, gutter guards, hearing aids... according to the ads. But also all new last year

I believe the Wrangler was only a few hundred units shy of outselling the Camry in April 2018!

Marketing gimmicks to find another brain-dead buyer for Chrysler. If it was Ford, I would have thought twice before posting, but Chrysler, never.
Never liked the entire Chrysler line up incl. those ugly Dodges built on MB chassis.
Brute torque and nothing else.

I would have lost that bet.

Next door neighbor has a new RAM truck. Neighbor down the street has two new Jeeps. My old Cherokee was pretty good.

It's cool that the Cherokee still has some off-road capability. Why they thought 25 cu.ft was sufficient behind the seats though is a mystery to me... That discounted it from my consideration anyways.

I think Sergio just annoys people and people forget what he can accomplish outside of that.

Obviously there is a rather large group of people who have a very different opinion of the brand.

I admit I love my ugly Dodge Charger. I'll submit it isn't as smooth as a Lexus. Cannot beat the bang for your buck performance wise. It handles curves in the road quite well for its size.

It validates that the CUV/SUV thingy is what people want. I think that's pretty much a given now that sedans are dying and may be dead in 10-15 years. Still don't get the love for Jeep though.
