Jeep recorded more sales in May than any other month in its 73-year history, the company reported. According to the automaker, global sales hit 100,207 while U.S. figures reached 70,203, both of which are the highest numbers ever posted in a month.
“After setting back-to-back annual sales records the past two years, the Jeep brand has now set three consecutive monthly sales records – topping 100,000 global sales and 70,000 U.S. sales in May,” said Mike Manley, President and CEO of Jeep. “It is clear that customers across the globe value the unique balance of legendary 4×4 capability and significantly improved fuel efficiency and on-road driving dynamics that the Jeep SUV lineup delivers. We look forward to continuing Jeep sales momentum in 2014, especially as the all-new Renegade arrives in Europe in the fourth quarter.”
Things just keep getting better for Jeep. In April it posted global sales of 85,404 and U.S. sales of 59,974, following global sales of 82,430 and U.S. sales of 57,983 in March.
Jeep won’t stop innovating
While consumers continue to seek Jeep vehicles in high numbers in 2014, it appears that strong demand won’t stop with the automaker’s plans for the future. Later this year, Jeep will be releasing the Renegade, and what it calls its most capable small sport utility vehicle.
“The all-new 2015 Jeep Renegade symbolizes the brand’s renowned American design, ingenuity and innovation, marking the Jeep brand’s first entry into the small SUV segment,” said Mike Manley, president and chief executive of Jeep Brand. “Renegade expands the brand’s product portfolio and targets the rapidly expanding small SUV segment with a best-in-class combination of fuel efficiency and off-road capability while at the same time delivering outstanding driving dynamics and the open-air freedom customers expect from Jeep.”
However, that’s just one of a few big moves Jeep is making in the near future. The automaker is also giving its Cherokee a major update, which is set to be released in 2015. In addition, Jeep has made plans to re-release the Grand Wagoneer, which will be available in mid-2018.
Demand rises for Jeep security products
As Jeep vehicles are highly sought after these days, owners are encouraged to look into products that help with security. Whether it’s adding Jeep parts and accessories such as reinforced locks or a roof rack for cargo room, there is no shortage of options when it comes to innovative storage solutions for Jeeps.
