As a result of the SUV revolution Jeep has become Fiat Chrysler’s dominant big-volume brand. Combined with Ram, Jeep is now the automaker’s foundation stone, according the Detroit News.
“We were a niche brand just a few years ago,” remembers veteran Jeep designer Mark Allen. Now Jeep has grown to a full-line ute-maker.
While Chrysler-Dodge sales have stagnated, Jeep is taking charge of all-wheel-drive ute dominance. For example, in 1992 Jeep sold 268,724 cars in the U.S. In 2016, it sold a whopping 926,376. It is also surfing the SUV wave in Europe, South America and China. It’s considered Chrysler’s first international brand.
In 2009, Jeep had four plants in the U.S. This year, it has 10 plants in six countries.
At Pine Belt Chrysler-Jeep, we’re thrilled with the new growth of the Jeep brand, but we’re not surprised. Jeep offers classic designs and unique looks, provides 4 X 4 capabilities and offers greater visibility on the road, thanks to its height advantage. It can also be customized and personalized so it’s easy to make it your own.
