Jeep Sales Slightly Down in August

Date 2007/9/5 8:01:52 | Topic: Sales

Chrysler LLC reported their first sales numbers since the un-merger a few weeks ago, and as expected, they're not great. On the whole, Chrysler sales were down about 6%. Jeep sales didn't do quite as bad, but had it been not for the stellar sales of the Wrangler the the gaining sales of the Compass (no, really!), things would have been a lot worse.

I think the Compass sales gain has a lot to do that a year ago Compass product was just ramping up.

From the official press release:
The Jeep(R) brand was down 1 percent versus last year while Wrangler and Compass posted gains over August 2006. Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited posted sales of 9,464 units, up 58 percent compared to August 2006 with 6,002 units sold. The Jeep Compass finished the month with sales of 3,625 units, up 76 percent from last year.

Full sales numbers after the jump.
