Chrysler Canada sales rise again

by David Zatz on

Chrysler Canada enjoyed its 19th consecutive month of sales growth, with 23,576 vehicles sold during June, 2011, 27% higher than in June 2010. Sales for the first half of the year are up 15%. Looking solely at retail figures, June 2011 was the best June since 2005.

The Chrysler Town & Country, which ranked highest for initial quality in the minivan segment from the J.D. Power and Associates 2011 U.S. Initial Quality Study (IQS), saw a 45% increase in sales; the Caravan went up 14%.

Ram sales went up by 26%; Ram is the top selling diesel truck in Canada. Canada’s best selling crossover, Dodge Journey, had a record month with an increase of 34%. Jeep sales rose by 57%, with Wrangler shattering all monthly records.

Three models, Ram, Grand Caravan, and Journey recorded record June sales, with Wrangler recording record monthly sales. Grand Caravan is Canada’s second best selling vehicle, followed by Ram at #3; Journey is Canada’s best selling crossover.

Chrysler Canada’s CEO, Reid Bigland, was recently appointed to head the Dodge brand, presumably in light of the sales successes enjoyed by the Canadian company.
