Jeep Continues Record-Breaking Sales Streak
Jeep is starting its 75th year on the right foot. The American carmaker recorded a record 1.2 million units sold in 2015, which is the most it has sold in its 75 years. With these sales numbers, Jeep has posted its fourth year in a row of global sales records—and it doesn’t look like the brand is going to stop anytime soon.

Globally, the total Jeep sales increased 22% compared to 2014 with a total sale of 1,237,583 units. The United States saw an increase of 25% with 692,348. In December alone, the brand saw an increase of 42% in the US. These sales were nothing compared to those in Europe, Middle East, and Africa, which saw an increase of 56%. But each of these was put to shame in Latin America, which saw an increase of 135%.
“2015 marked the second consecutive year of more than 1 million Jeep vehicle sales across the globe, the sixth straight year of Jeep sales increasing globally and in the US, and the highest total in the brand’s 75-year history,” said Mike Manley, head of Jeep Brand for FCA Global. “While we introduced the all-new Renegade, which is delighting consumers across the globe, we’re especially pleased that several Jeep vehicles recorded best-ever annual sales, both globally and in the US.”

The leading Jeep vehicles in the United States included the Cherokee, Grand Cherokee, and Wrangler. The brand-new Renegade followed close behind the Wrangler’s sales, while the Patriot and Compass brought up the rear.
Now, Jeep is offering 75th Anniversary edition models for each of the vehicles in its lineup. I can only guess that these sales numbers will continue to shine.
