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.
