The Jeep Compass Set a New Sales Record During May
While the Jeep Wrangler didn't set any new sales records, it also managed to have a very successful sales month
Earlier this year during March, the Jeep Wrangler set a new, model-specific sales record of 27,289 vehicles. Then, during April, the Jeep Wrangler surpassed that previous record with a total of 29,776 vehicles sold in that month alone.
The Wrangler didn’t set a new sales record in May. However, May was the best sales month ever for another Jeep model: the Jeep Compass.
