From a Chrysler press release

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.

  • Jeep brand sales (35,565 units) increased 24 percent versus the same month last year (28,603 units)

  • Jeep Wrangler sales (11,388 units) were up 47 percent compared with September 2010 (7,765 units)

  • Jeep Liberty sales (5,363 units) increased 10 percent versus September last year (4,865 units)

  • Sales of the Jeep Compass (4,422 units) were up 306 percent compared with the same month a year ago (1,090 units)

  • Jeep Patriot (3,812 units) posted a 5 percent year-over-year sales increase

Good growth, it is interesting as it correlates with an increase in car sales in America in general? a feeling that the new Wrangler have extraordinary growth, the rest in the general trends.

Hard to bite my tongue any longer...

You can buy a 4X4 (power everything) Liberty Sport for roughly the same price as a comparably-equipped 4X4 Patriot or Compass. Roughly in the mid-$20's. And the Liberty has higher rebates!

If the Patriot 4X4 stripped-version was $15,900 that would make some sense, but that's for the 4X2!

The recent redeux of the Compass (into a mini-GC) was certainly an improvement, but I've seen sticker prices north of $28,000! For what? And U can actually build one, with the works, for a mere $31,700. For a 4-cylinder 172HP undersized, tow-nothing, mediocre MPG, rattle-trap? RUFKM?

How UNinspired of a driver (Jeeper) do you have to be??

My wife loves her 09 KK Liberty. Mark, you're right, the Compass/Patriot are way overpriced for what they offer.

I would have liked the Liberty to be a little smaller--like the Patriot, but with a 6 cyl. engine. I believe, it would have flew off the dealer lots.

A Pentastar-powered Patriot.Hmmm, that would make me change my tune! But it ain't gonna happen.

I guess I should add, if it wasn't for government meddling with mpgs (CAFE laws) the Patriot & Compass may never have been built. (Or maybe one instead of two...) So, we have Washington to thank for all the overpriced fourbangers... .
