Did Stellantis screw the pooch with their pricing scheme? Over last 5 years, average transaction price up 61%.



Jeep's prices are OUT OF CONTROL, and it's hurting their customers! Ray and Zach shine a light onto the declining sales and skyrocketing average transaction prices of one of America's most beloved niche brands.


Some of their product line has 600-700 days on the lot. There is a direct correlation between price and sales.

With backdrop of Wranglers that are literally printing money for them. Whatever it takes to get clicks on that monetized YouTube account.

I'm sure they took the covid customer screwjob supply/demand money tacked onto MSRP during the previous couple years into consideration, right? Did they account for the fact that Jeep is now selling a ridiculous $120k Grand Wagoneer, and that for the last few years they sold a Hemi Wrangler that was somewhere around $80k (before the dealer jacked the price over the MSRP).

Yeah, out of business. Okay. That channel is a hot mess of outrage driven clickbait.

The "glory" of Stellantis seems like a dystopian 1980s movie: Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Citroën, Dodge, DS, Fiat, Jeep, Lancia, Maserati, Opel, Peugeot, Ram, and Vauxhall

They seem to only be missing Leyland.

All carmakers suffer from several factors that conspire against them. They have products that only those with money to throw away can afford, and they've advanced planned obsolescence to an art form.

One can find new frames, chassis, etc. for Jeeps. Spare parts are plentiful, except for Jeep FCs.
