Launching on the heels of the Dodge Caliber and coming from the same manufacturing facility, the all-new 2007 Jeep Compass expands the Jeep product lineup as the newest entry delivering utility, fuel efficiency and value. The Jeep Compass is just beginning to arrive at dealerships to a positive reception.

"Consumers are wrestling with the effects of higher gas prices and other economic uncertainties that are impacting the entire automotive industry, including the Chrysler Group," said Steven Landry, Chrysler Group, Vice President - Sales and Field Operations. "Products like the Dodge Caliber and the upcoming Jeep(R) Compass along with the Employee Pricing Plus program with the 'Ask Dr. Z' advertising campaign are the tools the company will use to build sales momentum."

Chrysler Group finished the month with 647,695 units of inventory, or a 91-day supply.
