Jeep Sets Sales Record in 2012, New Models Coming to Detroit

Last year was a great year for Jeep as it recorded global sales of 701,626 units, setting a new, all-time high - bettering the brand's previous high of 675,494 units sold in 1999. Last year Jeep vehicle sales increased 19 percent globally and 13 percent in the United States with a total 474,131 units sold.

"The Jeep brand has achieved double-digit percentage sales increases in each of the past three years, both globally and in the U.S. market," said Mike Manley, President and CEO - Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. "In late 2009, we set out on a course to quickly renew our entire vehicle lineup, with a focus on legendary Jeep capability combined with improved on-road driving dynamics, fuel efficiency and world-class craftsmanship. Clearly customers have appreciated the unique combination of attributes that Jeep vehicles offer.

"We expect to continue our sales momentum in 2013 with the introduction of an all-new mid-size Jeep SUV, as well as the new 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee, which will be available with a new, clean-diesel engine," Manley added.

Next week on January 14 Chrysler is set to unveil "several" new or refreshed Jeep models at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show.
