Sales for the Dodge Journey rose some 93 percent in November compared with the same month last year. In case you’re wondering, yes, that constitutes a new monthly sales record for the crossover.
Journey’s uptick no doubt contributed to Chrysler Group LLC’s monthly increase in market share. At the close of November, Chrysler’s domestic market share has increased to 8.4 percent, compared with 7.7% last month.
The company’s U.S. sales of tally of 63,560 units in November represented a 25 percent decline versus the previous November. Still, several vehicles across the lineup reported the double dip of year-over-year and month-over-month sales increases. Chrysler Sebring Sedan, Dodge Avenger and Dodge Grand Caravan all noted year-over-year boosts; while the Chrysler Sebring Convertible, Jeep® Commander, Jeep Liberty, Jeep Compass, Jeep Patriot, Dodge Viper, Dodge Dakota, and Ram Cab Chassis all reported month-over-month sales increases.
The sales numbers provide a “good foundation going forward,” said Fred Diaz, President and Chief Executive Officer-Ram Brand and Lead Executive for the Sales Organization, Chrysler Group LLC.
“Consumer confidence is building now that we’ve released our five-year business plan and we’re showcasing our brands, great products and cool features in new advertising. We have a bright future that everyone in the company is excited about,” he added.
