The group extended its streak of year-over-year sales gains to 56-consecutive months.


“Sales of our all-new Chrysler 200 sedan were up a strong 155 percent in November, helping Chrysler Group to achieve its 56th-consecutive month of year-over-year sales gains,” said Reid Bigland, Head of U.S. Sales. “In total we had 11 vehicles last month that set new sales records. Calendar year to date, Chrysler Group remains the fastest growing automaker in the country.”

Ram Light Duty sales increased 30 percent in November while Ram Heavy Duty pickups were up 3 percent. The editors of Motor Trend named the Ram 1500 the winner of their 2015 half-ton truck shootout in November. The judges were particularly impressed with the performance of the Ram 1500’s EcoDiesel V-6 engine as well as its eight-speed TorqueFlite transmission, a combination that boasts best-in-class 28 mpg fuel economy. The 1500 was named 2015 Green Truck of the Year by the Green Car Journal in November, and earned a “Best Buy” designation from Consumer Guide Automotive and Consumers Digest.

Ram Truck brand sales, which include the Ram ProMaster van and Ram Cargo Van, were up 31 percent, the brand’s best November sales in 11 years. Both the ProMaster and Cargo Van recorded their best ever monthly sales last month.

Chrysler Brand
Chrysler brand sales were up 30 percent, the brand’s best November sales since 2007. The brand’s increase was driven largely by the all-new 2015 Chrysler 200 sedan. Sales of the 200 were up 155 percent, the mid-size sedan’s best ever sales in the month of November and its best sales month this year. The 200 earned a “Best Buy” from Consumers Digest and from Consumer Guide Automotive in November, as well as the “Best Sedan” award from the Hispanic Motor Press Awards. Both consumer publications designated the Chrysler Town & Country minivan as a “Best Buy” as well.

Sales of the Chrysler 300 increased 18 percent last month, the full-size sedan’s best November sales in seven years. The Chrysler brand unveiled the new 2015 Chrysler 300 at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November. The new 2015 Chrysler 300 takes the nameplate’s style and sophistication to new levels through iconic design proportions and inspired materials, world-class quality and craftsmanship, best-in-class 31 miles per gallon (mpg) highway fuel economy, and class-exclusive innovations – including a state-of-the-art TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission now standard on every model.

Jeep® Brand
Jeep brand sales were up 27 percent, the brand’s best sales performance ever in the month of November and its 14th-consecutive month of year-over-year sales gains.

Consumers Digest designated the Grand Cherokee as a “Best Buy” in the Mid-Size SUV category in November.

Plunging gas prices are pushing up sales of SUVs and light trucks. Chrysler’s November were the strongest results since 2001, with Jeep sales soaring 27 percent and Ram pickups up 21 percent. Rational or not, many consumers are betting that today’s lower gas costs will be around for a while. Industry analysts predict that auto sales rose to an annualized rate of more than 17 million in November, the highest number in 13 years. “In the truck and SUV segments, we still have some pent up demand,” says IHS Automotive Senior Analyst Stephanie Brinley. “We still have a lot of vehicles on the roads that are 11 or 12 years old and people need to get new vehicles.” Rising consumer confidence is one reason for the sales increase. Low interest rates also make it easy for dealers to offer zero-percent loans. “Cars have more technology and better features and offer more value than they have in the past and consumers are willing to spend,” says Brinley.

Chrysler Canada today announced a milestone 60 consecutive months – or five years – of year-over-year sales growth, signifying the longest sales streak in the Company’s history.

November 2014 sales increased 9 per cent to 20,922 units, as compared with 19,206 sold in November 2013. These results have contributed to Chrysler Canada’s best sales, calendar-year-to-date, through 11 months and positioned the Company to have its best sales year in its 89 year history.


“With a broad portfolio of competitive and desirable vehicles, ranging from our Chrysler 200, to our iconic Jeep brand and Ram pickup trucks, our vehicles continue to gain momentum in the market as evidenced by our streak of five full years of monthly sales growth,” said David Buckingham, Chief Operating Officer, Chrysler Canada.

Sales Highlights

Built on a core of values for authenticity, passion, adventure and freedom, the Jeep® brand continues to grow its strong following in Canada. November sales for the brand were 5,887 units, an increase of 44 per cent versus November 2013. The Jeep Cherokee, the industry’s most capable mid-size SUV, led the way with 2,122 units sold, up 65 per cent versus the same month one year ago. Simultaneously, the legendary Jeep Wrangler - famed for combining open air freedom with go-anywhere capability – also marked a November sales record with 1,674 vehicles sold, up 59 per cent versus the same period in 2013.

The Ram Truck brand also set an all-time November sales record in Canada. Sales of 7,239 units mark a 21 per cent increase over November 2013. Leading the charge was the multi-award winning Ram 1500, a light-duty pickup which has been earning the attention of consumers with its style, capability, value and class-exclusive features like an available 3.0-litre EcoDiesel V6 engine and four-corner air suspension. Ram pickups sales were 6,699 units for November 2014, a record for the month and an increase of 19 per cent versus November 2013.

Moving to passenger cars, the Chrysler 200 more than doubled its monthly sales when comparing November 2014 to November 2013. A record 1,136 units were sold, making an increase of 130 per cent. The all-new Chrysler 200 was re-invented inside and out to combine understated elegance, craftsmanship and state-of-the-art technology. Our newest entry is changing the game in the mid-size sedan segment by including a segment-first standard nine-speed automatic transmission, best-in-class V6 horsepower and an available all-wheel-drive system which automatically disconnects from the rear axle to save fuel.
