This morning we received a press release from Jeep with some good news about the brand. With a host of redesigned or refreshed products, Jeep saw its best September sales month since 2007. Our 2011 Four Wheeler of the Year winner, the Jeep Grand Cherokee, has seen its sales increase by 78 percent for the year and it saw 52 percent increase in retail sales for the month of September, while the Jeep Wrangler set a new sales record for the month of September. To see more about Jeep's impressive month, check out the release below.
The Jeep brand’s 24 percent increase in September was driven in part by the new Jeep Compass. Sales of the Compass, now offering Trail Rated® 4x4 capability, were up 306 percent, the largest year-over-year percentage sales gain of any Chrysler Group model in September. September marked the Jeep brand’s 17th-consecutive month of year-over-year sales gains and best September since 2007.
The Jeep Wrangler, the benchmark off-road vehicle, and the Jeep Liberty mid-size SUV each posted double-digit percentage sales increases. The Wrangler was the top-selling Jeep model in September, and was second only to the Ram pickup truck as the top-selling Chrysler Group model during the month. The Wrangler set a new sales record for the month of September.
Jeep Grand Cherokee sales are up 78 percent through September this year compared with the same nine-month period last year. The 2012 Grand Cherokee delivers with even more refinement and features that can be appreciated on the road and off. Since its introduction, the 2012 Grand Cherokee has captured more than 30 awards from an array of opinion-leading organizations making it the most awarded SUV ever.
