Strong Grand Cherokee and Liberty Sales Push Jeep Sales Higher

Chrysler Group reported U.S. sales of 216,563 units, an increase of four percent compared to last year.

For the second consecutive month, Chrysler Group posted a year-over-year gain, which the automaker attributed to strong retail sales of its Chrysler and Dodge minivans, the new Dodge Ram pickup truck, Chrysler PT Cruiser and Jeep(R) Liberty.

"May sales were driven by the strength of our products and our dealer body, which aggressively supported our National Minivan Sales Event," said Gary Dilts, Senior Vice President - Sales, DaimlerChrysler Corporation. "The National Minivan Sales Event is helping drive customers into our dealerships, while the seven-year Powertrain Pledge on all Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge vehicles demonstrates that Chrysler Group stands behind the quality of its products."

The company's success was spread across all brand lines, with the Chrysler brand posting a 10 percent increase from a year ago, with an all-time May sales record of 51,204 (versus 46,752 in 2001). Jeep brand sales were up seven percent to 36,505 units. Dodge division sales of 128,652 were up five percent, compared to last year.

Other sales highlights include:

* Chrysler Concorde sales of 3,280 units were up 15 percent over a year ago

* Chrysler Sebring sedan sales of 5,650 were up 16 percent over a year ago

* Jeep Grand Cherokee sales of 16,700 units were up eight percent from a year ago

* Jeep Liberty sales of 13,082 units were up one percent over last month
