From a Chrysler Group press release.

The Chrysler Group reported U.S. sales for July 2007 of 137,728 units; down 8 percent compared to July 2006 with 150,349 units sold. All sales figures are reported as unadjusted.

"Overall, the industry experienced softer sales in July than a year ago," said Darryl Jackson, Vice President - U.S. Sales. "With industry sales down over 12 percent, Chrysler Group market share improved."

"Our new Chrysler Lifetime Powertrain Warranty is receiving a very positive reaction from our dealers and customers," added Jackson. "We started to see an immediate impact of the announcement in the traffic it is driving to our dealers' showrooms."

The Jeep brand continued its fifth consecutive month of year-over-year sales gains in July, posting an increase of 4 percent over the previous year. This result was driven by the continued strong sales of Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Compass.

Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited posted sales of 8,829 units, up 11 percent compared to July 2006 with 7,935 units sold. Posting its best July ever, the Jeep Compass finished July with sales of 2,591 units, up from July 2006 when the vehicle made its debut. Compass is a modern-styled vehicle that broadens the global appeal of the Jeep brand and achieves 30 miles per gallon or better in highway driving.
