By the end of the month, Jeep had sold a total of 86,989 vehicles. Compared to the 73,153 Jeeps it sold a year prior, this accounts for a 19 percent sales increase.
While the Jeep Compass didn’t surpass its sales record of 17,327 units it set during May of 2018, its sales were still very strong. Jeep sold a total of 15,142 Compass vehicles last month.
Compared to the 8,311 Compass models sold the year prior, the Jeep Compass nearly doubled its sales, with an increase of 82 percent. The Compass wan’t the only Jeep vehicle to nearly double its sales, either.
The Jeep Cherokee achieved total of 22,433 sales last month. In June of 2017, Jeep only manged to sell 11,895 Cherokees, meaning sales for the model increased by 89 percent.
The Cherokee’s year-to-date sales are similarly impressive, with a total of 113,719 vehicles sold during the first half of 2018. By this point last year, Jeep had only sold 81,368 Cherokees.

The Wrangler’s sales success continued last month as well. While not a new sales record, the 23,110 Wranglers Jeep did sell in June accounted for a sales increase of 23 percent.
So far this year, Jeep has sold a total of 133,492 Wranglers. If the model keeps up its current sales pace, then 2018 could prove to be one of the Jeep Wrangler’s best sales years ever, if not the best.
By the end of the year’s first half, Jeep’s overall sales totaled 495,022 units. This is a 22 percent sales increase when compared to the 406,291 vehicles Jeep sold during the first half of 2017.
