    July 3, 2012 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - Chrysler Group LLC today reported U.S. sales of 144,811 units, a 20 percent increase compared with sales in June 2011 (120,394 units), and the group’s best June sales since 2007.

    The Chrysler, Jeep®, Dodge, Ram Truck, and FIAT brands each posted sales increases in June compared with the same month a year ago. Chrysler Group recorded its 27th-consecutive month of year-over-year sales gains in June. Chrysler Group’s second-quarter sales were up 24 percent versus the same period last year.

    The FIAT brand set a sales record for the fifth-consecutive month and the brand’s 122 percent year-over-year sales gain was the largest percentage increase of any Chrysler Group brand in June. More Fiat 500 vehicles were sold during the first six months of this year than during all of 2011.

    The all-new 2013 Dodge Dart compact car has started to arrive in dealership showrooms across the country. The first sales of the highly-anticipated Dart are included in the June sales table. More than 1,000 Dodge dealers, eager to drive their first Dodge Dart back to their dealerships, converged on 12 “Dart Drive Away” events held around the country, some traveling distances greater than 500 miles to attend.

    “June was another solid month for the Chrysler Group with U.S. sales up 20 percent and second-quarter sales increasing 24 percent compared with the same period in 2011,” said Reid Bigland, President and CEO – Dodge Brand and Head of U.S. Sales. “June also marked our 27th-consecutive month of year-over-year sales growth. Continuous improvement remains a key focus at Chrysler as we have steadily increased sales, improved quality, added production and created jobs.”

    As the Fiat 500 was setting its June sales record, five other Chrysler Group models also posted record sales. For the third time in the last 12 months, the iconic Jeep Wrangler set an all-time monthly sales record. The Dodge brand had three record setters in June. The sporty Dodge Avenger mid-size sedan, the Dodge Challenger muscle car, and the Dodge Journey full-size crossover each set a sales record for the month of June. Rounding out the month’s pacesetters, the Chrysler 200 mid-size sedan set a sales record for the month of June.

    Also contributing to Chrysler Group’s 20 percent increase was the Chrysler 300 flagship sedan with a convincing 179 percent gain. The Chrysler Town & Country minivan and Jeep Grand Cherokee each logged sales increases of more than 30 percent while the Ram pickup truck, with its 12 percent increase, recorded its 26th-consecutive month of year-over-year sales gains and best June since 2007.

    Chrysler Group finished the month with a 67-days supply of inventory (358,260 units). U.S. industry sales figures for June are projected at an estimated 14.4 million units Seasonally Adjusted Annual Rate (SAAR).

    June 2012 U.S. Sales Highlights by Brand

    FIAT Brand

    The FIAT brand continued its record-setting pace in June with another monthly sales record. The brand has now strung together five-consecutive months of record-setting monthly sales. FIAT brand sales were up 122 percent in June compared with the same month a year ago, the largest year-over-year sales gain of any Chrysler Group brand. FIAT brand sales (20,706 units) in the first half of this year have already surpassed sales during all of 2011. Sales of the Fiat 500 began in the U.S. in March last year.

    The Fiat 500 took home two awards in June. The Fiat 500 Cabrio by Gucci won “Best Small Convertible of the Year” at the “Topless in Miami” convertible event held last month by the Southern Automotive Media Association (SAMA). More than 60 journalists attended this annual event. Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com editors named the Fiat 500 as one of their “10 Coolest New Cars Under $18,000.”

    Chrysler Brand

    Chrysler brand sales were up 63 percent in June, the brand’s best June sales in four years and 12th-consecutive month of year-over-year sales gains. All three Chrysler models contributed to the brand’s sound sales performance led by the Chrysler 300’s 179 percent increase, the flagship sedan’s best June sales since 2007. The Chrysler 300’s triple-digit sales gain was the largest percentage increase of any Chrysler Group model in June. Sales of the Chrysler 200 mid-size sedan, the brand’s volume leader for the month, and the Chrysler Town & Country minivan each turned in double-digit sales increases in June. The 200 set a sales record for the month of June. The Chrysler 300 SRT8 last month made Robb Report’s “Best of the Best: 2012” list in the sedan category.

    Jeep® Brand

    Jeep brand sales were up 23 percent, the brand’s best June sales since 2007, and its 26th-consecutive month of year-over-year sales gains. The Jeep Wrangler continued its torrid sales pace setting a monthly sales record in June, the third time during the last 12 months that this iconic SUV has established an all-time sales record. Sales of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, the most awarded SUV ever, were up 39 percent, its best June sales since 2005. Jeep Liberty sales increased a healthy 50 percent, the mid-size SUV’s best June sales since 2007 and best sales month this year.

    The international luxury lifestyle magazine Robb Report recently selected the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 as one of the top performers in its annual “Car of the Year” competition, ranking the high-performance SUV at number nine amongst new vehicles from around the world. The Grand Cherokee SRT8 also was chosen by the magazine for the “Best of the Best: 2012” list in the SUV category. Robb Report readers were among the judges who joined the magazine’s editors and writers in driving, evaluating and ranking the “Car of the Year” and “Best of the Best” vehicles based on interior design, layout, amenities and luxury features.

    Ram Truck Brand

    The Ram pickup truck, Chrysler Group’s volume leader, continued on its sales roll with a 12 percent increase in June compared with the same month a year ago. It was the pickup truck’s 26th-consecutive month of year-over-year sales gains and its best June since 2007. The Ram 1500 pickup led the way with an 18 percent increase. Of the Ram 1500 sales, the regular cab pickups posted the largest percentage sales increase in June, while the quad cab trucks led in volume. The highly-versatile Ram Cargo Van, designed for small businesses and commercial fleets, posted a 272 percent increase in June compared with sales in the previous month of May. The Ram Truck brand posted its best June sales since 2007.

    Dodge Brand

    Dodge brand sales increased 2 percent in June, the brand’s best June sales since 2007 and its 13th-consecutive month of year-over-year sales growth. Dodge dealers in June began selling the first of the all-new 2013 Dodge Dart compact cars to arrive at their dealerships. Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com placed the Dart at the top of its list of the “10 Coolest New Cars Under $18,000.” The Dart, the first Chrysler Group vehicle built on FIAT architecture, blends Alfa Romeo DNA with Dodge’s passion for performance and style, resulting in a groundbreaking vehicle that delivers features and benefits never before found in a compact car, all starting at $15,995 while offering up to 41 mpg highway.

    Three Dodge vehicles – the Avenger, Challenger, and Journey – set sales records for the month of June. Sales of the Avenger mid-size sedan were up 68 percent, the largest year-over-year percentage sales increase of any Dodge model in June. The Dodge Journey full-size crossover turned in a robust sales performance as well. Journey sales were up 49 percent compared to the same month a year ago.

    Edmunds.com and Parents magazine have selected the 2012 Dodge Durango among the “Best Family Cars of 2012.” This marks the 10th industry award for the Durango, including “Top Safety Pick” by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and “Full-size SUV of Texas” by the Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA).

    It's clearer than ever what people want in a Jeep. Company management had better be listening. Liberty sales surprise me. Not that it's a bad product, but that it is not new... if the Pentastar and 8 speed were in the Liberty now, it would really be going like hotcakes, imo. I mean, just look what the new engine has done for the Wrangler, BOOM!

    Although Patriot sales cooled last month, it warms my heart that even with all the corporate emphasis on its ugly sister the Compass, my favorite miniature Jeep still handily outsells it. I'd like to think it's based on looks, not just price.

    Dart needs to be in customers hands like YESTERDAY. Fantastic number of variations available should make this a solid hit, not to mention all the positive reviews so far. I just hope the car is bulletproof.

    Glad to see the Avenger/200 doing well, even though "doing well" is a relative term for these cars, when one looks at sales figures for the real heavy hitters in their segment.

    Wish Dodge Ram had a genuine, BOF compact pickup truck with a Fiat diesel in it. Happy to see business people are paying attention to the Caravan C/V, as I think it's a better product for the money v. the Transit Connect, if they are compared side by side.

    I wonder how much of the Liberty sales are going to fleet. They're all over the National/Alamo lots now.

    And I hope you guys will pardon me with the sales charts. They aren't posting the way they are supposed to, so it is taking longer for me to get the sales information posted.

    give Chrysler props. lipstick on pig / silk purse / lemons out of lemonade.

    Really, good job for what they had.

    Agreed, and I think good things are coming in the future from them!

    New Dart looks fantastic...should be a hit for them

      Dec 1, 2016 - TORRANCE, Calif.
      Powered by both cars and trucks, American Honda and the Honda Division set new November sales records American Honda and Honda Division trucks also set new November sales marks Compacts lead, with Fit gaining 43 percent and HR-V soaring 132 percent above year ago levels MDX sets November pace for Acura while RDX gets new November record Acura NSX reaches another milestone American Honda Motor Co., Inc. today reported total November sales of 122,924 Honda and Acura vehicles, an increase of 6.5 percent versus November of last year to set a new November record. American Honda trucks gained 9.9 percent for a new November record on sales of 62,737 units. Honda Division overall vehicle sales also set a new November mark of 111,308 units, rising 7.9 percent. Acura Division sales held fairly steady in November, totaling 11,616 units for a decrease of 5.1 percent.
      Honda
      Continuing to buck the industry trend, Honda car sales helped push the brand to a new November record. Fit and Accord led the way for Honda cars, with strong support from Civic.  Honda truck sales maintained strong momentum with a new November record as HR-V jumped in triple digits and both CR-V and the new Ridgeline had strong sales performances.
      Honda Division sales rose 7.9 percent on sales of 111,308 for a new November record. Honda cars gained 5.6 percent on sales of 56,943 units, while trucks increased 10.3 percent on sales of 54,365 units for a new November record. Accord, recently named one of Car & Driver magazine's 10 Best cars for a record 31st time, enjoyed a robust gain of 6.3 percent on sales of 27,182 units. HR-V sales totaled 8,141 in November, a remarkable 132 percent increase. Civic sales topped 25,000 for the month, gaining 1 percent and keeping Civic on track to set an all-time annual sales mark in December. "Considering the continued consumer appetite for trucks and SUVs, we're excited to see Honda cars resonate so well with our customers," said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division. "This is especially gratifying considering the strength of our light truck lineup, as we continue to hit on all cylinders with individual retail buyers."
      Acura
      Acura light trucks continued to show sales muscle, with MDX leading the month of November for the brand and RDX recording best-ever November sales. On the car side, RLX showed an uptick while NSX reached a new milestone.
      Acura trucks continued on pace to top 2015, gaining 7.6 percent with sales of 8,372 units in November. Sales of the redesigned MDX rose 13 percent on sales of 4,622 for the month. RDX had its best November sales to date, rising 1.6 percent on sales of 3,750 vehicles. RLX sales moved up slightly in November, gaining 16.7 percent on sales of 140 units. Reaching another milestone, the custom-crafted NSX supercar has topped 200 customer deliveries since sales commenced in May. "Strong sales of the new Acura MDX demonstrate that our design direction and focus on performance is the right path for the Acura brand," said Jon Ikeda, vice president and general manager of the Acura division. "With the NSX and the MDX leading the way, we will take our entire lineup toward Acura's Precision Crafted Performance DNA."

      Demand for Q7 SUV more than doubled; Q3 rose 45 percent A4 sedan increased 30 percent for the month Record sales streak continues for 71st consecutive month Audi of America reported a November sales increase of 2.5 percent to 17,118 vehicles, as the Q7, Q3 and A4 continued to lead the volume gains.
      It was Audi of America’s best November and its 71st straight month of record sales. The previous November record was set last year with 16,700 deliveries. Year-to-date sales have risen 2.9 percent to 187,018 vehicles despite a tightening premium market.
      November results were bolstered by demand for SUV models. Total SUV sales for the brand increased 22 percent over last November and 17 percent year-to-date. The Q5 was the volume leader with 4,187 vehicles sold. Sales of the Q3 rose 45 percent over last year to 1,613 vehicles. Q7 sales more than doubled with a 104 percent increase from last November to 2,605 vehicles.
      Demand for the A4 sedan remained robust with sales of 3,143 vehicles, a 30 percent increase for the month and a 19 percent increase year-to-date, notwithstanding a stagnant sedan market in the U.S.
      The A3 Sportback e-tron had its best sales month ever with 394 deliveries in November and 3,691 vehicles sold year-to-date.
      “On the heels of a successful November, we are on pace to achieve our seventh consecutive record sales year,” said Mark Del Rosso, chief operating officer, Audi of America. “We are confident that our momentum will continue in 2017, which promises to be one of the biggest launch years in Audi of America history.”
