Chrysler Sales Peaked Over 100k in May

I am always scouring the World Wide Web looking for positive news on the auto making industry. For one, I am a very happy person and I always look for inspiration online when reading about different industries that are now rebounding after overcoming many obstacles and hurdles. And for a second reason: there are always so many bad things that you read about in the news that it is nice to find something that is more enticing and uplifting, as opposed to only reading about things that are depressing. Speaking of depressing, the recent auto recession was really climaxing—or so it seemed—over the past several years, where the future of the Big Three automakers was at stake and filled with an air of uncertainty.

However, the full moon of sales is rising. By that pun I mean that the tides and waves of auto sales are rising, and that really is a great thing, folks! I was searching the web today, looking for some good news, and, indeed, I found it in a report from Auto News showing the once struggling and nearly bust automaker, Chrysler, had sold more overall units (in the month of May) than they had in fourteen months. Now, if you are looking for some good news in the auto industry, as it relates to new cars being sold, it does not get much cushier or spicier than this. Saucy, indeed, is my sentiment. As the report revealed to me, sales for Chrysler are vastly up for the month of May, 2010—to the tune of an overall increase of 33%.

To really offer you some solid perspective on this vast increase in sales, Auto News said, “Chrysler sold 104,819 units in May, just a year after the company's first month in a government-managed bankruptcy. It was the first time the company topped 100,000 sales in more than a year.”

And also, according to the same report, all of the cars in the carmaker’s line have improved sales, and the overall outlook is grand, indeed. “The numbers varied among Chrysler’s four brands. Dodge sales shot up 73 percent to 42,242, led by the Charger. The Charger was the top-selling Dodge at 9,625 units, up 136 percent over May 2009. The Chrysler brand rose 29 percent to 20,699 units, Jeep increased 6 percent to 22,948, and Ram truck sales were up 12 percent to 18,930.”

In case you are wondering what their best-selling car was overall for May, it was the hotbed Ram pickup truck. According to the report, “The Ram pickup was still the Chrysler Group's top seller at 17,298 units. The Chrysler Town & Country was second with 13,395 units, and the Jeep Wrangler was third at 9,634. The Grand Caravan and Town & Country benefited from a special promotion called Minivan Month.”

It begs the question: Is anybody really still worried about the future of Chrysler? I am not concerned at all! These numbers are growing exponentially and they are fab, for sure! The future looks bright for this carmaker, there is no doubt about it!
