cherokee boosts chrysler sales

Nothing determines the success of a company better than its sales reports. As 2013 draws to a close, big names in the automotive industry calculate their gains and losses and compare it to last year's mark. For Chrysler, November was a big month. In that month alone, they reported a 16 percent increase from November of 2012. What's more is that these numbers were the best they have been since the economic recession began in 2007.

A major factor in the sales growth was the introduction of Chrysler's newly redesigned 2014 Jeep Cherokee. The vehicle pushed Jeep sales to increase 30 percent. This however, should not come as a surprise, as the new Cherokee has much to offer. The mid-size sport utility vehicle comes loaded with a 3.2-liter Pentastar V-6 engine which will get 19 mpg in the city or 27 mpg on the highway.

Additionally, you may choose to upgrade to the Jeep's Technology Group or Luxury Group. Such selections give even more bang for your buck. The Technology Group comes with safety features such as the forward collision warning and mitigation, lane departure warning and blind spot and cross traffic detection. The Luxury Group indulges both the driver and passengers. It includes leather-trimmed bucket seats, memory for exterior mirrors and radio, power liftgate and high-intensity discharge headlights.

The 2014 Cherokee has paved the way for Chrysler's success but the brand not only blew away analyst sales estimates, it surpassed many of its competitors as well. Although General Motors, Ford, Toyota and Nissan also saw increases, they were not as dramatic as Chrysler's 16 percent. The reports are evident enough but if you are still not convinced, get behind the wheel of a 2013 Jeep Cherokee today to see for yourself.
