The Washington Post has calculated that of the Big Three American automakers, only Chrysler has gained further space in the market. The paper has attributed this gain in no small part to the company's introduction of competitive products such as the 300 sedan and the Dodge Magnum wagon. Since October of 2003, Chrysler has increased sales by 2 percent, whereas GM's car sales have decreased by 5 percent. Ford has performed even more miserably, with a 19.6-percent drop in sales for every vehicle other than trucks. Alternately, Ford's trucks have registered a year-to-date increase of 2.5 percent. Blang blang!
