FCA Reports Sales Dip in February

FCA Canada is reporting sales of the Windsor-built Dodge Grand Caravan are up 12-percent with nearly 2,900 vehicles sold in February 2019.

Sales of the Chrysler Pacifica were down 61-percent in February compared to the same month a year ago, with just 235 minivans sold.

Overall, FCA Canada says sales declined by 2 percent with 18, 461 vehicles sold.

After 11 straight months of year-over-year sales increases, Chrysler's U.S. February sales dropped by two percent compared with the same month in 2018.

 U.S. Head of Sales Reid Bigland said, "the overall industry is starting off slower due in part to weather, the government shutdown and concern over tax refunds."

Still the Ram brand reported a record February with a 24-percent sales increase. The Jeep brand dropped by three percent and Chrysler brand sales were down by 27-percent.
