Chrysler: Outperforms Rivals
The big news at Chrysler LLC is the fact its sales weren't as bad as its chief Detroit rivals, down 44 percent overall versus the 48.4-percent drop for Ford and the 52.9-percent slide for GM.
He also said that without the drag of fleet-sale declines, Chrysler improved its share of retail U.S. sales from 9.6 percent in February 2008 to 11.1 percent last month.
Only the Jeep Wrangler (+28 percent) and Dodge Journey crossover (+522 percent compared with a launch month last February) posted positive sales. Nonetheless, even a few models with improved sales bested the performance of many automakers in February.
