|From a Chrysler LLC press release.|
Chrysler achieved record sales outside North America in 2007 (238,218 units), outselling any previous year in the Company's history. This was an increase of 15 percent compared with total year sales in 2006, and set another record for the company with more than two and a half years of consecutive month-over-month sales growth. For the month of December, sales grew six percent (22,004 units) compared to the same month last year.
While each of the three brands was represented by a top-selling vehicle last year, Dodge with the Caliber, Jeep(R) with the Grand Cherokee, and Chrysler with the 300C, Jeep sales jumped 13 percent (96,924 units) to make it the Company's top-selling brand in 2007. In addition to the Jeep Grand Cherokee, demand for the Wrangler, Patriot and Compass have continued to grow since their introductions. This year, the company will launch the all-new Jeep Cherokee, in international markets, a volume vehicle for the brand.
Jeep is an icon around the world, and the brand's portfolio is well-suited to meet the needs of a wide variety of customers. The brand has done well in 2007, as have many vehicles in our brands' lineup, and the company sees the momentum continuing for Jeep as more customers have access to legendary brand's seven vehicles - all of which are available in right-hand-drive and with a diesel powertrain.
