Jeep Cherokee and Wrangler Break Monthly Records in May

2014 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk

Jeep had a good May.  Sales on two Jeeps in particular helped make the month one of the best the company has ever had.

The month of May belonged to the Jeep Wrangler and the Cherokee.  Chrysler Group is reporting that they sold 19,235 Wranglers and 15,992 Cherokees last month.  For the Wrangler, that sales number shatters a previous record from about a year ago.  For the newly debuted Cherokee, May sales is the highest the vehicle has sold since it first went on market.

The Wrangler and the Cherokee combined made up more than half of the Jeep sales in the US for May.  It also marked the 50th straight month for Chrysler as a whole to have positive year-over-year sales growth.

The sales were attributed to an improving economy and more affordable and reliable credit for consumers.  Another major factor in the month of May is Memorial Day.  Many buyers can find themselves great deals in dealerships during the holiday.

2014 Jeep Patriot Freedom Edition Honors The Troops

2013 Jeep Patriot Freedom EditionAhh Memorial Day, the time to start getting ready for summer.  If this past week has been any indication, it’s going to be a hot one in New York for the next few months.

The whole weekend, as people kick back in the pool and poke at their meat on the barbecue, it’s a time to reflect on those that passed to give us the opportunity to enjoy such peace and relaxation.

The military lineage runs deep in Jeep.  It’s how the line came into being.  No other vehicle can really trace its beginnings to being so ingrained in military use.

Jeep is celebrating this history by having a special edition added to their line-up in honor of our troops, the 2014 Jeep Patriot Freedom Edition.  It wears its support for the troops proudly.

The outside is painted in a either red, white or blue.  And it comes with a giant star printed right on top of the hood.  That same star logo is also on the front seats.  Oscar Mike is printed on the front door (it’s military speak for “On the move”).  Other features include 6-speed transmission and full 4×4 capacity.

That’s not the only way the Freedom Edition of the Patriot is giving back.  For every one of them sold, Jeep will in turn donate $250 to a military charity.

Jeep has always supported the troops one way or another for the past 70 years.  It’s never lost sight of that connection and this memorial day continues to honor those that have served.

Bayside Chrysler Jeep Dodge wants to remind those in the military about our Military Incentive Program.
