Jeep Herdsman's U.S. Inventory, a New Sales Record


Recommended Posts

According to foreign media reports, in the past three months, the inventory of Jeep Wrangler, unsold or already on the way by U.S. dealers, has exceeded 100 days'demand. Among them, there were 156 days in early November and 135 days in early December. The total U.S. inventory of the vehicle has risen from 69,579 in October to 85,979 in early December.

With the introduction of both new and old products by Fiat Chrysler (FCA), Jeep Herdsman's stock in the first two months of this year has also exceeded 100 days, while dealers now have almost twice or even triple the stock of the previous JK version of the Herdsman.

But distributors say another reason for the larger impact of inventory on sales may be price, which seems to be "more troublesome". A dealer in the Midwest of the United States said, "Our stock of horsemen has reached its highest level in history. Over the past three years, the price of horse herders has risen by $12,000, and now it has reached $55,000. Vehicles are price-sensitive products, and I think the price is a little too high, a little radical.

      Standard Motor Products (SMP) announced the introduction of 208 new part numbers in its January new-number announcement.
      This most recent release provides new coverage in 72 distinct product categories and 115 part numbers for 2022, 2023 and 2024 model-year vehicles.
      Standard’s emission-control program sees expansion with the introduction of vapor canister purge pumps for popular General Motors SUVs such as the 2023-2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer, and multiple EGR tubes covering 6.2 million vehicles.
      The Standard gas fuel-injection program also has grown with the release of new fuel injectors for GDI and MFI applications, as well as fuel-pressure regulators, fuel-pressure sensors, fuel-pump camshaft followers, high-pressure fuel pumps and more.
      Pentastar 3.6-liter engine oil filter housings may all look similar, but they feature distinct differences from year to year. Standard now offers coverage for the latest generation with coverage through 2024. Standard’s oil filter housing kits come completely assembled from the factory and include multiple design improvements over the original to address OE weak points.
      For powertrain-neutral categories, Standard has added 13 new ABS sensors, several parking brake actuators and Brake Pad Wear Sensors for vehicles like the 2023-21 Cadillac CT4 and heavy-duty General Motors trucks through the 2024 model-year.
      All-new QWIK-SENSOR TPMS multipacks of 25 are now available with rubber or metal valve stems. The kits include 25 individually packaged and protected QWIK-SENSOR multi-frequency TPMS sensors.
      Standard’s ADAS program continues to grow with the addition of 17 new park-assist cameras and 16 new park-assist sensors.
      Standard’s hybrid- and electric-vehicle program continues to expand with this release.
      Park-assist sensors are new for the 2023-2022 Mazda MX-30 EV, and ABS sensors are now available for the 2022-2019 Kia Niro EV, 2022-2019 Toyota Prius Prime and 2023-2019 Hyundai Nexo.
      Park-assist cameras are now available for the all-electric 2022 Ford E-Transit. Additionally, oil-pressure light switches are new for the hybrid 2023-2019 Lexus UX250h.
       “We’re starting the year strong, with 208 new numbers added to our best-in-industry product lines,” said Jack Ramsey, senior vice president of sales and marketing, SMP. “Standard and Four Seasons are committed to carrying this momentum throughout the new year, expanding our coverage for gas, diesel, hybrid and electric import and domestic vehicles.”
      All new applications are listed in the catalogs found at

      KYB recently unveiled the KYB Parts Catalog app.
      While most mobile catalog apps only ask for the year, make and model when searching for part numbers, KYB said its app dives much deeper, requesting information such as engine size, trim package and drivetrain type when applicable.
      The additional levels of detail provide “an accurate and much narrower list of recommended shock-and-strut applications and part numbers,” according to the company.
      With the app, service writers and technicians can quickly search for the part they need without accessing a computer. The app also provides recommended part numbers for performance-upgrade shocks and struts, strut mounts, boots and bumpers if available.
      The app can recommend the closest retailer or wholesaler from which to order the part, KYB noted.  
      “The new KYB Parts Catalog app quickly provides repair shops with the right part number, helping to reduce repair time and opening repair bays quicker,” the company said in a news release.
      Those who were using the KYB Shocks app will be automatically updated to this latest version, KYB said. New users can download the KYB Parts Catalog on The App Store and Google Play.
