Jeep Sets June Sales Record: More Popular Than Ever!


One of the most remarkable success stories in the auto industry of late is the rise of the Jeep.  Back when Chrysler was facing bankruptcy and its future was uncertain, nothing seemed further from thought than the idea that they’d be able to turn it around in the upcoming years.  Since recovering, the success story of Chrysler is a fascinating one, and one of the main reasons for that bounce-back is due to a new found fever for Jeeps. examined this new wave of love for Jeep.  June was an amazing month for the Jeep brand.  It had the best June sales ever.  Many Jeep vehicles had record-setting months including the new Jeep Cherokee and the ever-popular Jeep Wrangler.  Even the newest member of the family, the Jeep Renegade, had an increase of 10% from May.

This is an incredible feat considering that Jeep, back when the company was going under, was struggling with American sales.  Now, it’s not just selling here in the States, but has caught on overseas.  Jeep recently invested in a new plant for production in India, showing that Jeep is one of the bigger international favorites.

The future seems even brighter.  The Dodge Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcat experienced a higher than expected sales demand and Jeep is looking to capitalize on the popularity of the Hellcat name.  A Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Hellcat is expected next year.  This new SUV has potential to put some change into the market and have competitors scared.

What is it you’d like to see from Jeep in the coming years?  What do you think they need to do to keep the momentum going?

Theories on the Next Jeep Wrangler

2015 Jeep Wrangler

Jeep is currently hard at work not only getting Wranglers out the factory door to the buyers, but also on getting ready to give the Wrangler a new design.  While nothing has been shown to hint at what to expect from this, that hasn’t stopped anyone from trying to piece together ideas from what we already know.  One such writer for Four Wheeler did just that and has some evidence to back up his thoughts.

One of the bigger Jeep events is the Moab Easter Safari.  As it is with the rest, this year’s had Jeep bring along a number of concept Jeeps to show off to their fans.  This year’s models were of all shapes and sizes.    While there was nothing there to hint at what a Wrangler update would be, Fred Williams has a theory.

“Take it with a grain of salt.  Jeep will build the next Wrangler with four eventual body styles, not just two: a lightweight two-door, a four-door Unlimited, a pickup truck, and a Wagoneer.”

Where is this idea coming from?  It’s based on thinking of what the future holds due to new emission and mileage standards.  Jeep is going to have a rougher road ahead than most to keep up with the regulations.  “However, the 2013 Moab saw a super-lightweight concept known as Stich with a fabric body and slim trim lightened parts.  This is a hint to a future lightweight Jeep two-door in order to meet stringent standards based on footprint.”

Check out the rest of the article to see his full thoughts.  It is hard not to agree that Jeep will have to jump through numerous hoops to get the new Wrangler around harder regulations.  What do you want to see in the next Wrangler?
