Chrysler just released their sales figures for April, 2011 and things are looking up. Both the Grand Cherokee and Compass(!) had triple-figure year-over-year sales increases! The Jeep brand posted a 65% year-over-year increase - the largest of all the Chrysler brands.
From the press release:
The Jeep brand posted a 65 percent sales increase in April. All five Jeep brand models contributed to the increase by posting year-over-year sales gains. The new 2011 Jeep Compass, now featuring Jeep Trail Rated® capability for the first time, logged a 181 percent sales increase in April versus a year ago.
The all-new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee continues its strong market performance, as the brand’s volume leader posted a 189 percent sales gain in April. The Northwest Automotive Press Association (NWAPA) in April named the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee as its Northwest 2011 SUV of the Year. NWAPA journalists also recognized the Grand Cherokee as “Best Off-Road SUV.” The Jeep brand’s premium SUV has captured 29 awards since introduction last summer, including the latest – Ward’s “10 Best Interiors” award for 2011.
It was a busy month for the Jeep brand, unveiling six new “Moparized” Jeep vehicles for the 45th Annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari in Utah and two new models at the 2011 New York International Auto Show.
In New York, the brand introduced the most powerful, technologically advanced, high-performance Jeep vehicle ever – the all-new 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8® arriving in Jeep showrooms in the third quarter. The brand also unveiled the new 2011 Jeep Wrangler Mojave. Paying tribute to the well-known and rugged western desert Mojave Trail, Jeep Wrangler Mojave features a unique desert theme inside and out, and an aggressive wheel and tire package to tackle the toughest terrain.
