BMW versus Cadiillac

Last year, BMW sold almost 350,000 vehicles in the U.S.–almost twice as many cars and SUVs as Cadillac sold here. The reasons for BMW’s relative success are numerous, yet it can be tempting to oversimplify the situation and conclude that Americans prefer the German maker’s hardware to that of Cadillac. While that may be true, there’s more to the picture–or in Cadillac’s case, less.

2017 Ram ProMaster

2017 Ram ProMaster

Spurred by the success of Ford’s Transit Connect and the various versions of the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, Ram tapped its Fiat partner for a couple of commercial vans of its own. Both the big ProMaster and smaller ProMaster City were already being sold overseas when they adopted Ram badges a couple of years ago. Notable is that both are front-wheel drive, both are of unibody construction, and both are also offered in chassis-cab configurations “over there”; yet only the ProMaster’s has been sent stateside … so far.

2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk

Jeep is certainly the brightest jewel in the Fiat-Chrysler crown. Most models get only minor changes as they enter the 2017 model year, though more might be coming later on. Stay tuned….

2017 Ram 2500 Power Wagon

While car sales haven’t exactly set the world on fire under the Fiat-Chrysler partnership, truck (and Jeep) sales have been going great guns. So it’s not particularly surprising that Ram has made only minor changes for 2017, which perhaps is for the best. Notable, however, is a new 2500 that wears graphics that recall those from one of its earlier – and rather famous — Dodge siblings.

2017 Fiat 124

Fiat expands its model offerings for 2017 by adding the 124 Spider, a 2-seat sports car loosely based on the Mazda Miata.

Big in Europe but not so much here, Fiat fights to strengthen its foothold in the U.S. market by expanding its model lineup, offering more option combinations, and dropping some prices.

2017 Dodge Charger

Dodge focuses on performance and passengers for ’17, with the Charger SRT Hellcat–shown above–managing both.

With the demise last year of the midsize Avenger and this year of the compact Dart, Dodge has few mainstream cars in its lineup for 2017. What it does have, however, are some fire-breathing performance cars, a pair of 3-row SUVs, and the most popular minivan of all time.

2017 Chrysler 300

The Chrysler 300 adds two new — and unusual — paint colors for 2017, including the stealthy Ceramic Grey shown above.

There are only three vehicles that wear the winged Chrysler badge, and while two carry over with few changes for 2017, one is all new – and though it was introduced some months ago, it gains a significant new version this fall.
