Chrysler Group’s sales rose by 45% in November partly due to the recovering sales of sedans as well as the high demand for the Jeep brand lineup. Certain Chrysler Group models had sales gains of up to triple digits compared to its figures in November 2010. The flagship Chrysler 300 sedan sold 4,066 units, a 215% increase. The Dodge Charger rose by 160% to 5,099 units while the full-sized Dodge Avenger raised sales by 102% to 5,643 units.
The Chrysler 200, the restyled version of the former Chrysler Sebring sedan, had sales of 8,065 units. This stands for a 496% sales increase compared to the model it replaced the past year. Spokesman Ralph Kisiel said that Chrysler had overall sales of 107,172 units, a 45% increase from the 74,152 units that dealers were able to sell in November 2010.
This marked Chrysler Group's 20th straight month of year-over-year sales gains. Kisiel said that for this year, Chrysler Group sold 1,231,095, which is 25% higher than the 984,509 units it sold in November 2010. Jeep had a banner year.
In fact, sales of the Jeep Compass rose by 887% to 4,262 units over poor sales a year ago of just 432 units. Meanwhile, the Jeep Patriot’s sales in November increased by 46% to 4,013 units. With sales of 36,246 units, the Jeep brand achieved its best November since the year 2003.

The chrome elements give the grille surround a wonderful contrast. The new car also has the trademark key slot headlights that light up the road ahead.
