FCA US, the rechristened Chrysler Group, posted a 20-percent surge in sales in the United States in December to 193,261 units. The December surge – which marks the 57th month in a row in year-over-year sales increases – allowed FCA to close the year with a 16-percent jump in US volume to 2,090,639.

Eleven of the 21 vehicles in FCA’s product lineup posted either monthly or all-time sales records in December – three of them from Ram and another three from Jeep. The Ram brand was particularly strong in the month, as pickup sales jumped 32 percent.

The brand’s Ram 1500 surged 45 percent in December while the ProMaster and Ram C/V commercial vans set sales records in the month.

Jeep was also exceptional, posting a 19-percent jump in sales in December, with Cherokee outselling the Grand Cherokee and Wrangler for the fourth month in row. Also making good gains are the Wrangler and the Patriot.

These gains allowed Jeep to close 2014 with a 41-percent jump in US sales to 692,348 units – a new brand record. Jeep was seen to top 1 million global sales in 2014.

On the other hand, Chrysler was also a strong performance, surging 53 percent in December. Its 200 midsize sedan nearly tripled its sales in December, on a way to setting a new record for the month. Fiat-branded vehicles, meanwhile only hiked 1 percent in December while Dodge units dropped 2 percent.
