"In a generally soft market environment in February, the Chrysler Group had good traffic and solid customer interest especially for our newly launched, fuel efficient models like the Dodge Avenger, Dodge Caliber and Jeep(R) Compass. Also, the Jeep Wrangler had its best February ever," said Steven Landry, Vice President - Sales and Field Operations, Chrysler Group.

The Dodge Avenger posted sales of 5,205 units. The vehicle is one of the Chrysler Group's five new models that achieve 30 miles per gallon or better in highway driving.
