Chrysler Builds Its One-Millionth Jeep Wrangler

The Jeep Wrangler is as American as apple pie and Star Wars… and on May 17, 2013, the 1,000,000 Jeep Wrangler rolled off the production line. This local news video showcases the pride that factory employees have for the brand.

Chrysler Sales Up Five Percent In March 2013

2013 Jeep Compass
From automobilemag.com:
Following in the footsteps of February’s four-percent sales increase, Chrysler announced today that its U.S. volumes in March 2013 increased five percent year-over-year, totaling 171,606 units. Chrysler’s happy to boast about March being its 36th consecutive month of year-over-year sales gains, but more importantly, its first-quarter sales in 2013 are up eight percent compared to the same period in 2012.

What model lines saw the biggest swings in March?

Dodge Challenger:
People are apparently still clamoring for Mopar muscle, as Challenger sales increased a whopping 42 percent year-to-year, totaling 6132 units. This is the fourth consecutive month where Challenger volumes grew by 20 percent or more, and the best monthly sales figure for the model since its re-introduction in 2008. Perhaps the $2000 cash incentive on 2013 Challengers offered in March helped spur this growth.

Jeep Compass: Jeep purists may loathe the thing, but it seems small crossover shoppers actually like the C-segment Compass. Sales grew 28 percent in March, amounting to 5111 units. Jeep says that volume was constrained by the switch over to the 2014 Compass, which boasts a number of small refinements and the adoption of a proper six-speed automatic transaxle.

Ram Pickups: Chrysler also says the launch of the updated 2013 Ram 1500 and 2013 Ram Heavy Duty models negatively impacted volumes in the first quarter, but it didn’t seem to affect Ram pickup sales in March. 33,831 units were sold last month, marking a 25 percent year-to-year increase, and an increase of 10,542 trucks over February 2013.

More U.S. Made Jeep Wranglers as Toledo Plant Increases Production to Meet Demand

Any time Chrysler Group LLC Chief Executive Sergio Marchionne talks about Jeep, you’re likely to hear two things — that the brand is key to Chrysler’s goal of international expansion, and that he’d sell more Jeeps if he had more to sell.

Under plans outlined to The Blade on Monday, he’ll soon get a few dozen more Wranglers each day.

Dan Henneman, Jeep unit chairman for the Toledo Assembly complex, said starting April 1, Chrysler will begin running the Wrangler assembly line through breaks and add a third shift to the Wrangler paint shop, allowing production of another 60 to 70 vehicles per day.

Right now, the line stops for workers’ 10 and 15-minute breaks, idling the line for 50 minutes per shift. Under the new arrangement, workers still will get the breaks, but the line will be kept moving by adding an extra worker to each team who will rotate through the jobs.

My Jeep obsession: When to stop being frugal

brown jeep wrangler with top down and brown dog in the front seatHere’s the thing: I have wanted a Jeep Wrangler since I was 16 years old.

That’s when one of my soccer teammates got a new one for her birthday. My experience was different.

When I turned 17, my mom handed me the spare key to her old Dodge Caravan to say I could use it when she wasn’t ferrying around my siblings.

Even after I bought a sensible, affordable Honda Civic after college, the idea of a Wrangler has been stuck in my craw.

I’ve priced them hundreds of times — new ones, used ones, certified preowned ones.

I’ve scoured Craigslist and car websites, dreaming of driving one down to the Jersey Shore — an area about which I have written two books — wind in my hair as I cruised to the beach in the ultimate beach car.

But I told myself I couldn’t buy a Jeep. It’s not a sensible car.

My Civic was fine, and when it wasn’t fine, I’d just buy another two-door sedan because that’s the sensible, financially correct thing to do.

Well, screw that.

I’m a saver. I put away more than half of my income toward retirement and emergency savings.

I bought a house that costs much less than what I can afford. I even appreciate having a smaller dog because she doesn’t eat as much as a big dog would.

But as I looked at my friend’s 1999 tan, manual Jeep Wrangler Sport, I realized frugality should not be the rule for every part of our lives.

I have wanted this car since before I could drive.

Jeep sets all-time sales record in 2012

Last year was good to Jeep. Chrysler has announced its trail-rated brand set an all-time global sales record in 2012 by moving 701,626 units. That number easily surpasses the previous record set in 1999 when Jeep sold 675,494 models. All told, the brand saw a 19-percent sales increase worldwide over 2011, and much of that swell can be traced directly to the Wrangler. While the Grand Cherokee led Jeep sales, the Wrangler posted record numbers both globally and within the US, moving 194,142 and 141,669 units in each market, respectively.

Meanwhile, the Compass beat its previous global sales record with 103,321 units rolling off of dealer lots. In the US, Jeep sold 62,010 Patriot units, breaking that model’s previous record as well. Jeep’s impressive performance in 2012 marks the second year in a row the brand has seen double-digit percentage sales increases. Check out the full press release here.
