Sales Highlights
Ram Truck brand sales, which include Ram pickup, Ram ProMaster and Ram ProMaster City, were up 12 per cent in November versus the same month a year ago. The brand’s increase was driven largely by the strong 14 per cent increase in Ram pickup truck sales. Coming off an October where Ram 1500 was crowned the overall winner of the Canadian Truck King Challenge for the third time in a row, Ram Truck continued to grab headlines last month. On the awards front, Ram 1500 earned a Best Buy title from Consumers Digest in the Pickup segment – its third nod in four years, while Green Car Journal named the Ram ProMaster City its 2017 Commercial Green Car of the Year for the second consecutive year — the first time a vehicle has won one of the magazine’s titles consecutively.

In November 2016, three Dodge brand products saw double-digit – and in one case triple-digit - sales increases. The Canadian-made Dodge Charger saw sales increase 166 per cent as compared with results from the same month one year ago. The Dodge Challenger, which is also manufactured at the award-winning Brampton Assembly Plant (BAP), saw its sales increase 58 per cent in November 2015, versus the same month last year. Momentum continues around Dodge Durango as well. November 2016 sales were up 60 per cent versus the same month from last year and calendar-year-to-date versus 2015, Durango sales are up 73 per cent.

For November 2016, Jeep® Grand Cherokee sales increases continued. Grand Cherokee sales were up 25 per cent in November 2016 compared with results from the same month one year ago. Calendar-year-to-date versus 2015, Grand Cherokee sales are up 34 per cent. Also in November, the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4 earned a five-star overall safety rating from NHTSA. Five stars is the highest single rating in NHTSA’s vehicle evaluation program. The five-star rating reflects performance in NHTSA tests that simulate: frontal collision with another vehicle, side impact with another vehicle and side impact with a pole.

*Method of Determining Monthly Sales: Beginning with the July 2016 sales report, FCA Canada sales numbers have been calculated using a new sales reporting methodology, which is described in more detail in the explanatory note issued on September 1, 2016. Sales by dealers are derived from the New Vehicle Delivery Report, or NVDR system and reported upon the first sale reported in the NVDR system. Under the new reporting methodology, fleet sales are recorded as sales upon shipment by FCA Canada of the vehicle to the customer or end user.  The updated monthly sales figures are available on the FCA US media website at www.media.fcanorthamerica.com.
