Winner: Jeep + 41 percent

And then there’s Jeep. Chrysler’s most rugged brand enjoyed a 41 percent gain over July 2013. That is probably due in large part to the fact that the company didn’t have a compact crossover to sell this time last year and heavy consumer incentives on older models, but the fact remains that sales went up in a big way. By comparison, the next strongest gain under Chrysler’s corporate umbrella goes to Ram with an 18 percent bump, or less than half of what Jeep enjoyed.

    Maybe we should start a VW death watch?

    Forget VW, how about Acura… so sad what’s happened to that company.

    I agree. Acura and Scion will not live to see the 45th President. They are definitely stone cold dead.

  • The Esmeister

    Acura would sell so much more if they would just change the grille. No one liked it in 2009 and no one likes it now in 2014.
