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.

The Toledo Blade is ran a story yesterday about supply vs. demand in regards to the Jeep Wrangler. Due to a 7 week shutdown on plants that produce the iconic vehicle, dealers are having a difficult time keeping up with customer requests.
“Jerry Snodgrass probably could sell a dozen Jeep Wranglers today – that is, if he had any to sell. But the general manager of Baumann Chrysler Jeep Dodge in Fremont is in the same predicament as many other Jeep dealers nationwide. That is, plenty of demand for the Toledo-built Wranglers but few, if any, to sell following the seven-week shutdown of vehicle production by Chrysler Group LLC. “I am completely out of Wranglers. I’ve got a salesman looking up at me right now asking me, ‘When are we going to get more Wranglers?’•” Mr. Snodgrass said yesterday. The company announced yesterday, as other automakers revealed their June vehicle sales figures, that last month it sold 4,810 Wranglers, down 28 percent from the same month last year. But sales may have slumped because dealers ran out of Wranglers. Chrysler had just a 38-day supply of Wranglers as of June 1, compared with a typical industry average of 60 days or more. Sales of the Toledo-built Jeep Liberty, by contrast, were 3,815 units last month, off 24 percent from a year ago but with a more plentiful 65-day inventory supply. For the first half of the year, Wrangler sales are up 5 percent from a year ago, while Liberty sales are down 42 percent.”

Time for Chrysler to crank up production and get the people their Jeeps. Let’s face it, Jeep is the strongest of the Chrysler line-up and will continue to do well as the economy climes slowly out of the recession.

Kimberly S. Johnson & Bree Fowler of the AP report:
“Auburn Hills-based Chrysler LLC sold 101,001 vehicles, marking its first month since September that it sold more than 100,000.
“Breaking the 100,000 number was really important to us,” said Chrysler Vice Chairman Jim Press. “We asked dealers to rally behind that.”
The Jeep Wrangler was one of the few Chrysler models that saw sales increase, by 16 percent. Chrysler said it applied more incentives to the Wrangler, but a new four-door model appeared to be driving sales.”

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.

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.

According to the ToledoBlade.com, Chrysler LLC executive Jim Press announced that Chrysler will be introducing 7 new models in 2010 during a speech to the Automotive Press Association.
“The auto executive, who left Toyota Motor Corp. a year ago to join Chrysler, also promised big changes for the privately held automaker, including a technology that he said will transform the automobile.
Specifically, Chrysler will introduce seven new models for 2010, some of which would include advanced drive systems, Mr. Press said.”
He also went on to praise the Jeep Brand and at least gave lip service to the fact that the Jeep brand has strayed a bit too far away from it’s loyal base in recent years. This sounds like a step in the right direction.
“The Jeep brand must not be devalued by less-rugged vehicles that don’t live up to Jeep’s off-road image, Jim Press, Chrysler LLC vice-chairman and president, told a roomful of auto writers yesterday.
“We need to keep it a genuine Jeep image, we can’t dilute it by trying to sell out the volume of the brand on ‘faux’ Jeeps. We want to return to our roots and have trail-rated authentic Jeeps that have value,” Mr. Press said during a speech here to members of the Automobile Press Association.”
