PatriotCompass and Patriot Show Strong July Sales

The Jeep brand showed some sales life during the month of July - both the Compass and the Patriot just about doubled their sales compared with July of 2008.

Wrangler sales for 2009 are still running 2% higher than 2008, but overall, the entire Jeep brand is down over one-third for the year.

Overall, Chrysler sales were up 30% compared to June, and foot traffic in dealerships was about double what is was this time last year.

According to Peter Fong, President and Chief Executive Officer-Chrysler Brand and Lead Executive for the Sales Organization, Chrysler Group LLC., much of the increases are due to the "Cash for Clunkers" program, "The government's program is doing what it is designed to do-spur consumers to trade in older gas guzzlers for new, fuel-efficient vehicles. While we don't expect the industry sales forecast to change dramatically, we are seeing encouraging signs that consumer confidence is building, and more consumers are considering purchasing a new vehicle."

Full sales numbers after the jump.
