Article by Christian Andrei, on March 6, 2015

FCA US saw its sales jump 5.6 percent in February 2015 to 163,586 vehicles, thanks to strong demand for Jeeps, Ram pickups and the Chrysler 200. The surge marked the carmaker’s 59th consecutive month of year-over-year sales increases in the United States. Leading the carmaker’s charge is Jeep, which jumped 21 percent overall thanks to the best-ever February volume recorded by the Wrangler, Cherokee and Compass.

The Jeep Patriot also posted its best sales for any month. On the other hand, the Chrysler brand surged 13 percent in February. Gains from the Chrysler 200, which logged a new February sales record, . Gains from the 200, which was redesigned last year, offset losses from the Town & Country minivan and the 300 sedan.

Sales of the Ram brand leaped 12 percent as demand for commercial vans and pickups hiked. For instance, sales of the Ram 1500 pickup jumped 7 percent, while those of the Ram heavy-duty pickup hiked 3 percent. The Fiat and Dodge brands were not so fortunate in February.

Fiat suffered from 5-percent drop in sales with losses from the 500 minicar negating the higher sales of the 500L. Dodge, meanwhile, saw its sales drop 15 percent, no thanks to double-digit plunge in sales of the Grand Caravan and Durango. The Dodge Dart, Charger and Challenger were able to post double-digit sales in February. Minivan at FCA US also dropped 24 percent in the month.

“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.”
