There’s no hiding the fact that Sergio Marchionne wants to marry his Fiat Chrysler Automobiles to a rival automaker. Maybe the Volkswagen Group? General Motors looks awfully desirable. If two-thirds of the old Detroit Three got together, why not add Ford Motor Company to the mix?
Indeed, why not? This market share chart looks at the U.S. auto industry’s first five months to see what Sergio sees in his dreams. For the real thing, including a complete sortable list of every brand’s May, year-to-date, year-over-year change, and market share results, visit GCBC.
But for the fake thing, imagine an all-wheel-drive Fusion with the Challenger SRT Hellcat’s 707-horsepower engine, a Fiat 500X with the Volkswagen Golf R’s 292-horsepower turbo 2.0L, a Jeep Wrangler sharing a platform with the Buick Encore and Ford EcoSport, or a Ford F-150 with the Ram 1500’s EcoDiesel.
