In total, the automaker moved 163,586 units in the United States last month. Compare that to February of 2014, when the automaker moved 154,866 units. (There’s that 6% sales boost.) Specifically, Chrysler, Jeep, and Ram each experienced year-over-year sales gains. To no one’s surprise, the largest by a long shot was Jeep’s sales gains over last year of 21%; Jeep has been experiencing tremendous sales in recent months.
“In spite of snow and bitter cold that slowed auto sales in many regions of the country, FCA US still turned in a 6 percent sales increase and extended our year-over-year sales streak to 59-consecutive months,” remarked Reid Bigland, Head of U.S. Sales. “Even with tougher year-over-year sales comparisons in 2015, our vehicle lineup continues to produce record sales results.”
A total of nine vehicles from FCA’s US lineup posted record February sales. Among them were the Jeep Patriot (best sales month ever), Jeep Cherokee, Jeep Wrangler, Jeep Compass, Dodge Challenger (sales up 42%), Fiat 500L, Chrysler 200 (sales up 31%), Ram ProMaster, and Ram Cargo Van. Further, last month marked the best February that the company has seen since 2007.
