Indeed, Jeep sold a total of 21,978 Cherokee vehicles last month, a sales increase of 85 percent compared to the 11,874 it sold last August. Meanwhile, Jeep sold a total of 20,168 Wrangler vehicles during that same period.

Year-to-date, Grand Cherokee sales are down by 7 percent. Jeep has delivered 147,341 units of the vehicle so far this year.
