Jeep Sales Set an All-Time Monthly Record
There seems to be no limit to the heights the Chrysler Group can reach with Jeep, both on and off the road. The brand, which posted its best sales month ever, saw increases with just about every Jeep model produced.
In the U.S., the Jeep Compass earned its best sales month ever. The Wrangler and Patriot set sales records as well for the month of April, according to the company’s official report. In fact, sales of the Patriot jumped 44 percent; the largest-percentage sales gain of any Jeep brand vehicle during April. The all-new Jeep Cherokee, which just earned a spot on WardAuto’s list of the “10 Best Interiors for 2014,” saw a sales increase of 9 percent in April compared to March.
In Canada, Jeep sales were up 71 percent in April, an all-time monthly sales record with a total of 6,415 vehicles sold. That’s a 52 percent increase compared with the 3,600 units sold in April of last year.
Leading the surge in Canada was the Jeep Wrangler, which also set an all-time record with 2,305 units sold, an increase of 447 compared to 2013. April sales of the new Jeep Cherokee in Canada were up 20 percent compared to March with a total of 1,701 units sold.
Overall, the Chrysler Group saw an increase of 14 percent for April sales, compared to 2013, with the Jeep brand leading the charge.
