Jeep brand records best February sales ever; Jeep Patriot records best sales month ever
Dodge Challenger sales up 42 percent; best February sales ever
Chrysler 200 sales up 31 percent; best February sales ever

March 3, 2015 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

FCA US LLC today reported U.S. sales of 163,586 units, a 6 percent increase compared with sales in February 2014 (154,866 units), and the group’s best February sales since 2007.

The Chrysler, Jeep®, and Ram Truck brands each posted year-over-year sales gains in February compared with the same month a year ago. The Jeep brand’s 21 percent increase was the largest sales gain of any FCA US brand during the month and its best February sales ever. The group extended its streak of year-over-year sales gains to 59-consecutive months.


“In spite of snow and bitter cold that slowed auto sales in many regions of the country, FCA US still turned in a 6 percent sales increase and extended our year-over-year sales streak to 59-consecutive months,” said Reid Bigland, Head of U.S. Sales. “Even with tougher year-over-year sales comparisons in 2015, our vehicle lineup continues to produce record sales results.”

Nine FCA US vehicles set records in the month of February, including four of the five Jeep brand vehicles. The Jeep Patriot turned in its best sales month ever, while the Jeep Cherokee, Jeep Wrangler, and Jeep Compass each recorded their best ever sales in the month of February. The Dodge Challenger, Fiat 500L, Chrysler 200, Ram ProMaster, and Ram Cargo Van each recorded their best ever sales in the month of February.

FCA US finished the month of February with an 85-day supply of inventory (577,277 units). U.S. industry sales figures for February are internally projected at an estimated 16.5 million units Seasonally Adjusted Annual Rate (SAAR).


Jeep® Brand
Jeep brand sales were up 21 percent, the brand’s best sales performance ever in the month of February and its 17th-consecutive month of year-over-year sales gains. The Jeep brand has set a sales record in each month dating back to November 2013. Four of the five Jeep brand vehicles turned in sales records during the month. Sales of the Jeep Patriot were up 59 percent in February, the compact SUV’s best sales month ever and largest percentage increase of any Jeep brand model. The Jeep Cherokee, Wrangler, and Compass each recorded their best ever sales in the month of February. Sales of the Jeep Grand Cherokee were up 8 percent for its best February sales in nine years.

For a third-consecutive year, the Patriot was named the winner of Kelley Blue Book’s lowest 5-Year Cost to Own award in the Compact SUV/Crossover category, while the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited earned the same award in the Mid-size SUV/Crossover segment.

Chrysler Brand
Chrysler brand sales increased 13 percent, the brand’s best February sales since 2008 and its eighth-consecutive month of year-over-year sales gains. Sales of the Chrysler 200 were up 31 percent, the mid-size sedan’s best ever sales in the month of February. The 200 was recognized as the Best Family Vehicle by the Midwest Automotive Media Association (MAMA) during last month’s Chicago Auto Show. MAMA is a nonprofit group of more than 200 automotive journalists and industry professionals who developed the award to help consumers make a wise purchase decision when it is time to shop for a family vehicle.

Ram Truck Brand
Sales of the Ram pickup truck were up 7 percent in February; its 58th-consecutive month of year-over-year sales gains. It was the pickup truck’s best February sales since 2004. Ram Light Duty pickup sales increased 7 percent in February while Ram Heavy Duty pickups were up 3 percent. The Ram 1500 was named by U.S. News & World Report last month as its Best Full-size Truck for the Money. In the site’s ranking of vehicle choices, Ram 1500 scored the highest among full-size pickups available to U.S. buyers. Within its class, the Ram 1500 took top honors for its outstanding value and critical acclaim. This is the second year in a row Ram’s half-ton entry has won the award.

Ram Truck brand sales, which include the Ram ProMaster, Ram ProMaster City, and Ram Cargo Van, were up 12 percent, the brand’s best February sales since 2007. The ProMaster Van and Ram Cargo Van each recorded their best ever sales in the month of February. The ProMaster City, which went on sale in January, is beginning to arrive in Ram Truck dealerships in greater numbers.

FIAT Brand
Sales of the Fiat 500L were up 19 percent last month, its best sales ever in the month of February. Sales of the 500L have been up year-over-year for four-consecutive months. FIAT brand sales, which include the Fiat 500 and 500L, were down slightly in February compared with the same month a year ago.

The 2016 Fiat 500X crossover, the latest addition to the FIAT lineup, will arrive in FIAT studios in the second quarter of 2015. On the heels of the FIAT brand’s return to Super Bowl advertising, FIAT fans can now configure the all-new crossover at FIAT USA - Official site for FIAT 500, 500c, 500e, 500L & Abarth. The FIAT brand is coming off of a record year in 2014. The FIAT brand’s full-year sales were up 7 percent in 2014, compared with sales in 2013. It was the FIAT brand’s best annual sales since the brand was re-introduced in the U.S. in 2011.

Dodge Brand
Sales of the Dart were up 52 percent, the largest percentage sales gain of any Dodge brand vehicle during the month. The Challenger turned in its best ever February sales with a 42 percent year-over-year sales gain. Dodge brand sales were down 15 percent in February, compared with the same month a year ago, due in part to model changeover at the Windsor Assembly Plant in Windsor, Ontario, where the Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country are built. The new 2015 Dodge Charger last month picked up a Driver’s Choice award for “Best Sports Sedan” from MotorWeek, the automotive television magazine program. Charger sales were up 16 percent in February, its best February sales since 2007.

Thanks to many of you, our U.S. sales streak continues: FCA US LLC had its 59 consecutive month of year-over-year sales growth in February with U.S. sales up 6%, to 163,586.

The sales growth was spurred on by the continued strength of the Jeep® brand, combined with growth by the Chrysler 200, Dodge Charger, Dart and Challenger and the ever-reliable Ram Trucks brand.

In all, we had seven vehicles exceed 10,000 in sales, with nine vehicles setting records in February – including the best month ever for Jeep Patriot. Growth came from both our car sales, up 2%, and truck sales, which were up 7%.

In the comments are details of our February U.S. sales. Pictured are our four most popular cars sold in the U.S. last month: # 1 Chrysler 200, # 2 Dodge Charger, # 3 Dodge Dart and # 4 Dodge Challenger.

February 2015 sales were 18,711 compared with 18,522 in February 2014, which represents a 1 per cent increase.




Financial Post
Fiat Chrysler Canadian sales edge up in February, topping Ford


“Our consistent investment in our product portfolio has propelled us to a streak of 63 consecutive months of year over year sales gains,” said Dave Buckingham, Chief Operating Officer, FCA Canada. “I fully expect these strong sales results to continue as we introduce more great new products like the Jeep Renegade and FIAT 500X to the Canadian market.”

Sales Highlights:

Jeep Brand sales were up 2 percent, with 4,282 units sold, compared with 4,212 sold in February of 2014, marking a February sales record. The Jeep brand has set a sales record in each month dating back to February, 2014.

Jeep Cherokee was the best-selling Jeep in Canada, in both the months January and February of 2015. For the month, 1,474 copies of the Jeep Cherokee were sold, marking an increase of 9 per cent over 1,358 sold in February of 2014. These results represent a monthly sales record. The Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk – the most capable mid-size sport utility vehicle – was recently named “Four Wheeler of the Year”, by Four Wheeler magazine.

February 2015 represented the 27th consecutive month of year-over-year sales growth for the Ram brand with 6,294 sales, marking an increase of 9 per cent over 5,770 units sold in February 2014. These results represent a monthly sales record for the brand. Looking specifically at Ram pickup truck sales within the full Ram brand line-up, there were 5,645 sold in February 2015, compared with 5,390 trucks sold in February 2014. These results represent a 5 per cent increase and mark a February sales record.

The Rebel features one-of-a kind off-road design cues backed by a one inch factory suspension lift providing best in-class ground clearance. The Ram Laramie Limited, which is already the benchmark for truck opulence, shows an even higher level of sophistication and attention to detail, as expected from buyers looking for the best in capability without sacrificing the finest in luxury accompaniments.
