10.3.11 – Chrysler Group LLC is reporting an increase in Jeep Brand Vehicle Sales of 24 percent for September 2011. The Jeep Wrangler led the way, but the increase was also bolstered by a whopping 306% increase in Jeep Compass sales and a 78% increase in Grand Cherokee sales. These increase can be attributed to the 2012 redesign for the 2012 Grand Cherokee and the new Trail Rated 4×4 capability of the new Compass. Chrysler is showing a 27% increase across the board for all it’s vehicle lines (Jeep, Dodge, Ram, Chrysler). Great news for Jeep lovers.

From Automotive News:
“By 2014, 12 nameplates from Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep or Ram will have heavy Fiat influence. They will either be developed on Fiat Group platforms or rebadged and imported from the Fiat Group.”
Here’s what they have in store for Jeep:
“Subcompact SUV: A small SUV is planned in 2013, based on the platform for the next generation Fiat Panda Cross.
Patriot: Minor exterior and interior changes are planned for 2010. Production ends in 2012.
Compass: Minor exterior and interior changes are slated for 2010. The Compass will be dropped in 2012.
Compact crossover: The unnamed crossover will be developed on a Fiat Group platform. Sales begin in 2013.
Wrangler: A new interior is scheduled for 2010. A new powertrain will be offered in 2011.
Liberty: Minor cosmetic and interior changes are planned for 2010. The redesigned Liberty debuts in 2013, based on a Fiat Group platform.
Commander: U.S. production ends late in 2010. The Commander may be assembled outside North America for export markets.
Grand Cherokee: The redesigned Grand Cherokee and next-generation Mercedes-Benz full-size SUVs are linked at the hip. Vehicle development started when Daimler owned Chrysler. Component sharing is expected to continue for several years. The redesigned Grand Cherokee debuts in May 2010.”

Chrysler LLC has reported it’s Jeep Sales Figures for the January 2009 sales period. The Commander undersold by a whooping -71% compared to the same period last year. The Jeep Compass had a -69% percent drop and moved a measly 819 units nationally during this time. Look for it to be dropped in the near future with those kind of sales numbers. The Grand Cherokee and Liberty both had a -60% drop, while the recently popular Patriot saw sales fall -53%. Jeep’s lone positive performer was the Jeep Wrangler who was showing a slight up tick in sales from last year at a 4% sales increase, most likely helped by the slew of rebates out there right now. Overall Jeep sales are down -49% from the same time period last year.

Chrysler has released their sales figures for all of 2008, as well as the particularly bleak December 2008 numbers. Jeep sales fell -48% from December ’08 compared to the same time period in ’07. The Compass and Commander were the real stinkers of the group with sales falling -63% & -62% respectively. The Jeep Wrangler was the least offensive of the bunch with only -22% drop. All other models were -48% or worse.
For all of 2008, Jeep sales dropped -30% from the previous year. Patriot sales are up 38% for the year. The Jeep Liberty & Wrangler were the next “best” performers with only a -27% & -29% sales difference. Grand Cherokee sales fell -39%, while the not-so-fuel-efficient Commander saw it’s sales drop -56% on the year.
November 6, 2008
Well, Chrysler LLC has announced their sales figures for October 2008. Things aren’t looking very good for Jeep (or any Chrysler model) at the moment. The Jeep Patriot is the one and only positive performer for the year, up 62% but still down -11% for 10/08 as oppossed to 10/07. Jeep Grand Cherokee sales were down -24% in October as oppossed -37% on the year. That may be due to both dropping gas prices and last ditch efforts to grab a lease. Wrangler sales dropped -33%, bring their sales down -30% for the year. The Jeep Liberty is down -40% selling 3,918 units during the time period. The Commander improved to -48% sales difference, bringing them “up” to -54% on the year. The ugly stepchild of the family is still the Compass. This forgotten “Jeep” sold a measly 855 units for the October sales period for a -62% drop in vehicles moved.
These dismal totals bring Jeep sales down 105,017 units sold for a -27% drop in volume moved on the year.

Chrysler LLC announced their September 2008 sales figures this week and the news is not getting any better. Jeep Brand Sales are down -43% overall from the September sales period in 2007. All models had significant drops in sales, with the gas-hogging Commander and relatively fuel-efficient Compass taking the biggest hit, a -65% drop. The Patriot, having the same or comparable gas mileage as the Compass, had sales drop only -25%, probably speaking for the public’s preference for the Patriot’s boxier body style. Sales were down for the Jeep Grand Cherokee -56%, the Jeep Wrangler -29%, and the Jeep Liberty -27%. Jeep Brand Sales are down -26% for the year.
September 10, 2008

Jeep Liberty or Dodge Nitro to be phased out, officials say.
Nameplates will be merged by 2012 model year
“Chrysler LLC officials yesterday confirmed that they will phase out either the Toledo-made Jeep Liberty or the Dodge Nitro sport utility vehicle by the 2012 model year. Steven Landry, vice president of North American sales, told industry analysts that the slow-selling Nitro and its near-twin, the Jeep Liberty, would be merged behind one nameplate within three years.
“If you put sales of Liberty and Nitro together, it’s doing what we want it to do,” Mr. Landry said while discussing the poor August sales of the two vehicles.”

Most people are saying that the Dodge Nitro will be the one to go. There seem to be a lot more of the Jeep Liberties on the road than the Nitro, then again we’re not out there looking for Dodges.
As Chrysler’s “Project Genesis” continues it’s cost cutting measures, expect to see either the Jeep Compass or Patriot go by the wayside as well.
