With buyers desperate for cars this past year, FCA US dealers seem to have successfully cleared out their remaining supplies of unpopular or long-discontinued cars, which might have been used as loaners or demonstrators, or for internal purposes.
The dead-but-sold cars include nine Jeep Patriots (only one was sold in 2020, but nine were sold in 2021); ten Chrysler 200s (versus just two last year); three Town & Countrys. versus none last year; no fewer than five Dodge Darts; and two Dodge Vipers.
Fiat dealers managed to clear out 33 500s, more than the twelve they sold in 2020. (The one Fiat officially on sale, the 500X, saw 201 U.S. sales over the full year).
The last Darts were 2016 models; the 200 was dropped earlier. The Town & Country was ended when the Pacifica started production. Patriots were dropped in 2017.
