During the last few months of 2018, the Jeep Cherokee managed to surpass its larger cousin, the Jeep Grand Cherokee, in terms of sales. Now, it’s time for the Jeep Grand Cherokee to reclaim its title as Jeep’s highest-selling vehicle.

After all, Jeep Grand Cherokee sales were up 26 percent in March.

Jeep sold a total of 24,665 Grand Cherokee vehicles last month. That made it the best-selling model in Jeep’s current lineup.

The Grand Cherokee’s sales success carries over into its year-to-date results. With 57,749 Jeep Cherokees sold so far this year, the SUV is easily Jeep’s highest seller. Those results also represent a year-to-date sales increase of 8 percent for the Grand Cherokee.

Meanwhile, the smaller Cherokee hasn’t experienced the same sales growth so far this year. Jeep Cherokee sales were actually down 23 percent during March, with 18,262 units sold last month.

The Cherokee’s year-to-date sales are a little more stable. Jeep has delivered 49,420 Cherokee models so far this year, a slight sales decline of only 2 percent.

While Jeep Wrangler sales were also down during March, it managed to outsell the Cherokee. Despite a 21 percent sales loss, the Jeep Wrangler managed to net 21,963 sales.

Jeep’s overall sales were down 11 percent by the end of the month, with 87,328 vehicles delivered. Of course, some of these sales losses should be expected, as many Jeep enthusiasts are holding off until the Jeep Gladiator officially arrives on dealership lots before purchasing their next Jeep vehicle.
