Chrysler Group reported sales of 170,480 units, up 22% compared to October 2013 (140,083 units), in line with analyst estimates and the company’s best October sales since 2001.

Chrysler Group has now posted sales gains for 55 consecutive months.

The October surge was led by Jeep’s 52% record-setting sales explosion and Ram’s 36% jump. Chrysler brand sales were up 17% on a 40% increase in sales of the Chrysler 200. Fiat sales were in the black, thanks to an 18% rise in sales of the Cinquecento.

“Chrysler Group sales increased 22 percent in October, our eighth month of double-digit growth this year and our 55th-consecutive month of year-over-year sales gains,” said Reid Bigland, Head of U.S. Sales. “Chrysler Group is the industry’s fastest-growing automaker driven in part by sales of our all-new Jeep Cherokee and Chrysler 200 mid-size sedan, and by the strong consumer demand for our award-winning Ram pickup trucks.”

New October sales records were set by the Jeep Cherokee, Jeep Wrangler, Chrysler 200, Dodge Challenger, and Dodge Dart.

Chrysler Group finished the month of October with a 84 days supply of inventory (530,338 units).

Bill Cawthon grew up in the auto industry in the 1950s. His Dad worked for Chrysler and Bill spent a number of Saturdays down on the plant floor at Dodge Main in Hamtramck. Bill is also the U.S. market correspondent for just-auto.com, a British auto industry publication, and a member of the Texas Auto Writers Association, which has named the Jeep Grand Cherokee the “SUV of Texas” several times and named the Ram 1500 as the “Truck of Texas” two years running.

Bill has owned five Plymouths (including the only 1962 “Texan”), one Dodge and one Chrysler and is still trying to figure out how to justify a Wrangler. He also has owned at least one of every 1:87 scale model of a Chrysler product. You can reach him directly at (206) 888-7324 or by using the form.
