Sales Stats

I am seeing new GC's all over the place, notice that they seem to be moving pretty quickly off the lots, and then I also see the various discussions herein about restrictions on various equipment or configurations - all of which lead me to guess that sales are very strong and maybe better than expected. Anyone (Milous) know sales figures or statistics of interest?

Great question. I would be interested in seeing how sales are distributed around the U.S. in particular. I am not seeing that many on the roads around my part of the world and am curious if I'm just missing them or what.

Re: Sales Stats

Ditto that. I see more contributors from our area on this forum than I see real, live WK2s hereabouts. Maybe its our Quaker-influenced conservatism to wait for the second model year before laying down cash.

Re: Sales Stats

The wkJeeps site has a page with some historical GC sales figures, but if you look at the bottom of the page the sales figures have not been updated for a long time.

http://www.wkjeeps.com/wk_production.htm#SALES

Milous has a lot on his plate, and can't do everything. Any one know another source of sales figures to help out?

Edit: Here's another link to a WK2 sales page, also in need of more data:

Chrysler Group LLC today reported U.S. sales of 70,118, a 23 percent increase compared with sales in January 2010 (57,143 units).

The entire Jeep® product lineup, the Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country minivans, and the Ram pickup truck helped drive the 23 percent sales increase in January, the 10th consecutive month of year-over-year sales increases.

“We have set the foundation for a year of sales growth with our 16 all-new or significantly-revamped models for 2011,” said Fred Diaz, President and CEO – Ram Truck Brand and Lead Executive for U.S. Sales. “We have started the year on a strong note, and we intend to continue gaining sales momentum as our new 2011 models hit dealer showrooms during this first quarter.”

Hot off their exciting premieres at the North American International Auto Show in January, the all-new 2011 Chrysler 300 series sedans have begun shipping to dealers and the new 2011 Jeep Compass compact SUV has already arrived in dealerships.

Chrysler Group’s 16 all-new or significantly-refreshed models, representing 75 percent of its nameplates, are arriving in dealerships in volume. The all-new 2011 Dodge Durango three-row SUV and the new 2011 Chrysler 200 mid-size sedan landed in dealerships in January, as did the new 2011 model year Dodge Journey, Dodge Grand Caravan, Dodge Avenger, and Chrysler Town & Country minivan.

The Jeep, Dodge and Ram Truck brands started the year with a bang, posting double-digit percentage sales increases in January, led by the Jeep brand’s 47 percent sales gain versus a year ago. The Chrysler Town & Country, the original luxury minivan and the nation’s top-selling minivan in 2010, led the Chrysler brand with a 45 percent sales increase in January versus a year ago.

Chrysler Group finished the month with an 89-day supply of inventory (260,533 units). U.S. industry sales figures for January are projected at an estimated 12.8 SAAR.

January 2011 U.S. Sales Highlights by Brand

Jeep® Brand

Jeep brand sales were up 47 percent in January compared with the same month in 2010. All Jeep models currently in production posted a sales increase in January, led by the brand’s flagship Jeep Grand Cherokee. Sales of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, the brand’s volume leader, increased 130 percent in January versus a year ago. Sales of the iconic Jeep Wrangler were up 32 percent compared with January a year ago.

The Jeep brand is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year. To mark the occasion, the brand is creating distinctive, premium 70th Anniversary Edition models of each vehicle in its lineup that pay homage to the history of the legendary Jeep brand. All Jeep 70th Anniversary Edition models will arrive in showrooms in the first quarter, and all will be available in a unique Bronze Star exterior paint, in addition to Bright Silver and Black.

The Jeep brand unveiled its new 2011 Jeep Compass compact SUV at the North American International Auto Show in January. Offering unsurpassed 4x4 fuel economy and off-road capability in the compact-SUV segment, the 2011 Compass features a stunning new sophisticated design, with cues coming directly from the brand’s premium icon, the all-new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Re: Sales Stats

Here's a link to more up-to-date monthly sales figures for the Grand Cherokee. But as noted, figures include a mix of 2010 and 2011 models for the end of the model year. Scroll down to the third and fourth tables:
