Chrysler Enjoys One of its Best Mays Ever

Best May Sales - ChryslerDealerNY - Bayside Chrysler Jeep Dodge

May was another good month for Chrysler.  Sales were up, a 4 percent increase from May of last year.  In fact, May 2015 was the company’s best May sales since 2005.

The strong leader amongst the various brands is till Jeep.  Jeep has been helping Chrysler maintain the sales streak it has been enjoying for now 62 months of year-over-year sales gains.  The brand had a sales increase of 13 percent with May being the best monthly sales ever for Jeep.  The Cherokee and the Wrangler had their best sales months ever and the other winner was the Patriot with it also having the best sales in May.  New for Jeep this month was the Renegade which had its sales increase 5 percent from April.

The other brands faired very well also.  Chrysler was up 32 percent with the new 2015 Chrysler 200 increasing 537 percent from last year.  If there was any proof that people were excited for a new take on the 200, there is some proof right there.  It had the largest year-over-year percentage gain of any FCA US vehicle.  That new model sure did some good in generating sales and excitement with consumers.

Ram truck sales continue to climb.  The ProMaster had its sales increase 12 percent as the whole of Ram trucks increased 8 percent in May.  Like the others, May was the best sales for Ram pickups in 11 years.

And finally Dodge, not to be left out, also had an amazing May.  With a sales increase of 29 percent, this was the brand’s best monthly sales ever.  The winners were the Dodge Dart and the Durango which had an increase of their sales.  The Durango had its best May sales since 2005.
