(Toledo, OH) Jeep Wrangler sales remain on pace for another record year.
Fiat Chrysler reports more than 21,000 Wranglers left dealer lots in July, leading to a 15 percent jump last month in Jeep brand sales. The Wrangler remains the automaker's number two seller behind the Dodge Ram pick-up truck.
For the year, sales of the Toledo-made model are up almost one-third to nearly 155-thousand of the retooled Wrangler. SUV sales overall helped FCA to a six-percent increase in overall auto sales in July, as the market for sedans continues to drop.
The Wrangler could see even bigger gains, with Jeep shipping a version with a new turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
