June Jeep Sales Down 40% From Last Year

Date 2008/7/5 18:43:56 | Topic: Sales

Ouch. Despite Chrysler's best attempts to spin the news, Jeep sales continue to suck. First, the good news:
The all-new Jeep(R) Patriot posted sales for June with 4,889 units, up 6 percent compared with June 2007 sales of 4,633 units. Combined year-to-date (YTD) total sales of the fuel-efficient Dodge Caliber, Jeep Compass and Jeep Patriot compact vehicles which each achieve 28 miles per gallon or better in highway driving, reached 114,188 units, up 18 percent from YTD 2007 combined sales of 96,553 units.

It seems that their "Let's Refuel America" promotion is having some effect - they're extending it through the end of July.
