Chrysler Group June 2014 Sales Report: Best June Since ‘07
According to the Chrysler Group June 2014 sales report released earlier today, the automaker experienced its 51st consecutive month of year-over-year sales gains. In total, Chrysler Group moved 171,086 units in the United States, which marks a 9 percent increase compared to June 2013 sales—and the group’s best June sales since way back in 2007.
“In spite of two fewer selling days in June versus a year ago, we were able to increase our sales 9 percent and post our strongest June sales in seven years,” explained Reid Bigland, Head of U.S. Sales. “Month-over-month sales of our all-new Chrysler 200 increased from a few hundred units in May to more than 5,000 in June as inventory of the mid-size sedan continues to build. In addition, sales of the Jeep brand increased 28 percent and our Ram Truck brand 14 percent helping to lead Chrysler Group to its 51st-consecutive month of year-over-year sales growth.”
The Chrysler 200 performed exceptionally well, with a 12-day average turnover rate and total sales topping 5,000, compared to just 595 in May. In addition, the Jeep Patriot, Compass, and Wrangler each reached their highest sales numbers ever last month. The Fiat 500L, Dodge Journey, and Dodge Dart followed suit.
Sales are expected to continue to climb in July.
