    Does this include sales of the brand new F-series presented on Detroit Motor Show?

      Hi Todor – no the new F-series won’t go on sale in the US until the end of the year.

    Bluemind :
    The new Jeep Cherokee enters at the top of the best-selling cars in 2014 by the Group Fiat Chrysler Automobiles in USA.

    The top of what? Surely not the top of it’s segment. It’s not even the top of FCA, beeing outsold by the Grand Cherokee and the ancient 200.
