From a Chrysler press release

The Jeep Brand posted a 111 percent sales increase compared with the same month a year ago. All Jeep models in production posted a sales gain during October. Sales of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, the brand's volume leader, increased 291 percent in October compared with a year ago, driven predominately by sales of the all-new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The all-new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee was named "SUV of Texas" by the Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA). The automotive industry's new benchmark, premium SUV also was named "Full-Size SUV of Texas" by this influential panel of automotive journalists. The 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara complete with an all-new interior, body-color hard top, and legendary Jeep capability took home the "Mid-Size SUV of Texas" crown.

Sales of the iconic Jeep Wrangler increased 49 percent compared with October 2009. Jeep Patriot and Jeep Compass also had a strong October as each model posted triple-digit percentage sales increases. The new 2011 Jeep Patriot, the affordable compact sport-utility vehicle, arrives in dealership showrooms this month with rugged new exterior styling, interior enhancements, and refinements to the suspension and steering systems.
