From a Chrysler press release

The Jeep Brand posted a 17 percent year-over-year increase in August. The all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee contributed to the increase as its August sales more than doubled sales in July. The iconic Jeep Wrangler, the brand's volume leader, increased year-over-year sales 37 percent. Building on that momentum, the 2011 Jeep Wrangler boasts an all-new interior that delivers a host of comfort, convenience and versatility features. In addition, Sahara models now feature an all-new body-color hard top for customers looking for a Jeep Wrangler with a more premium appearance. Production of the 2011 Wranglers began in mid August at the Toledo Assembly Complex in Toledo, Ohio and will arrive in dealerships in greater volume this month. Jeep Liberty, Jeep Compass and Jeep Patriot had a strong August as each model had double-digit percentage sales increases.
