Chrysler Group LLC said its May sales in the United States increased by 11 percent year-over-year to 166,596 units, marking its best May since 2007.
Paced by strong sales of the Jeep Wrangler and Grand Cherokee, among other models, Chrysler posted its 38th consecutive month of year-over-year sales gains.
"We continue to see strong retail sales throughout our product lineup as eight Chrysler Group vehicles set sales records in May, including best sales ever by the Jeep Wrangler and Compass," said Reid Bigland, Chrysler's head of U.S. sales.
May U.S. sales of the Jeep Compass were up 42 percent to 5,276 units, while sales of the Jeep Wrangler were up 13 percent to 16,272 units, according to Chrysler.
