FCA enjoy massive profits increase thanks to Jeep


Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is having a busy year so far with
a raft of changes internally, some new models, recalls and massive improvements
across the board in terms of quality. So it's good news for all that FCA are
enjoying a boost in profits as well.

The latest release shows second quarter profits for FCA have
increased by a massive 69% to $363 million USD. Total earnings for the period
amounted to $31.8 billion USD while earnings before taxes rose 58% to $607
million USD.

Much of this is down to the revitalized Jeep brand that is
enjoying something of a renaissance right now. The Jeep range saw a 27%
increase in sales compared to Q2 2014 and shows no sign of slowing down. Much
of this is down to the renewed Jeep Grand Cherokee which has been selling
exceptionally well.

It's good to see such a turnaround given how dire Chrysler's
situation was a few years ago. What a turnaround considering the company is now
expanding manufacturing and increasing production just to meet demand!
