Quarterly Numbers Reports
It’s been a little while since we reported on the numbers produced by our beloved Jeep brand and its current parent company FCA US. Every now and again, we like to share the quarterly numbers for those who keep track or are interested in this sort of stuff. And IF you’ve been keeping track, you’ve noticed that sales growth has been lackluster or outright missing in some cases over the last several quarters. Well the first quarter of 2018 has boded well for FCA & Jeep as the 18-month losing streak has finally come to an end. March closed with a 14 percent sales increase to over 216 thousand vehicles on the strength of a 45 percent increase in Jeep sales, which topped 100,000 units in a month for the first time in the brand’s history. I’m just going to go ahead and mention that the Jeep Talk Show’s reach and influence was an unofficial and at this time unconfirmed instrumental part in this unprecedented growth. Jumping back to reality, the company’s struggling fleet mix rose to 25 percent for the month, from 23 percent a year ago.
Another Celebrity Jeeper.
WWE’s John Cena signed his wrestling contract in 2001, and his success quickly blossomed. Back when Cena’s career was just beginning, he spent his first big paycheck from the WWE on a personal passion of his — cars. Though that very first vehicle purchase wasn’t exactly what most would call a collector’s item. In a recent YouTube episode of the series “John Cena – Auto Geek” the former pro wrestling star says: “I signed a contract for myself way, way back when for peanuts. But, I felt like I needed to showcase my accomplishment, and I did – with this baby right here,” giving the faded …eh-hem…. red 1989 5 speed Jeep Wrangler YJ a little love-tap on the top of the door. What’s funny is that he admittingly didnt know how to drive a stick when he first got it. Needless to say, he learned real fast. “It was the first car I ever paid cash for without some money from the parents” he said. “I bought it with 80,000 miles on it,” He’s kept secret the actual amount he payed for it back then, but today…. it is his most driven vehicle.
