A mere month after setting a sales record for the Wrangler, Jeep surpassed that benchmark, making April the Wrangler's new best sales month ever
During March, Jeep made history by selling 27,829 Jeep Wrangler vehicles. That made March the Wrangler’s best month of sales ever.
Nevertheless, it didn’t take long for Jeep to surpass that sales record. In fact, the automakers sold 29,776 Wrangler vehicles last month, making April the Wrangler’s new best sales month.
