Fiat Chrysler April Sales Show Huge Increase, Jeep’s Best Month Ever

Fiat Chrysler April Sales

Fiat Chrysler is on track to celebrate one of its best years ever once 2015 comes to an end, if sales from the past four months are any indication. The auto company recently announced that their U.S. sales increased by 6 percent in April, as well as over the first third of the year.

The star of the April sales in particular was the new Jeep Renegade, a mini SUV that just went on sale. In fact – Jeep as a whole had their most successful month of all time.

The sub-brands within Fiat Chrysler had their ups and downs last month, ultimately balancing positively to produce these impressive numbers. The prosperous models include the Dodge Challenger – which also had its best month ever – as well as the in-demand 2015 Chrysler 200.

At this rate, we certainly wouldn’t be surprised if 2015 marked broken records across the board for the automakers, based on the Fiat Chrysler April sales. What do you think? Let Rochester Hills Chrysler Jeep know your thoughts in the comments.

Renegades By X Ambassadors: A “Spot On” Accompaniment for Jeep Renegade

The Jeep Renegade is one of Kelley Blue Book’s Best SUVs for Under $25,000. Other accolades include Arizona AAA Top Pick For Cool Car Segment and KBB’s 10 Favorite New-For-2015 Cars, according to Jeep.

So when you are creating a marketing spot for the Renegade, any accompanying music has got to reflect that kind of flair, a song like “Renegades” by X Ambassadors.

Enter the X Ambassadors. The band hails from Brooklyn and, for some reason, their song entitled “Renegades” seemed appropriate for the campaign. Apparently, the song title was a coincidence.

Jeep had partnered with Interscope records and had challenged the record label to deliver a piece of music that reflected “the theme and the spirit of the new Jeep.” It just so happened that X Ambassadors, an Interscope artist, had been working on the “Renegades” that embodied the spirit of the Jeep.

Fiat Chrysler chief marketing officer Olivier Francois was happy with the marriage, to say the least. He said “The music is a smash, the hook is super catchy….The script of the song is…spot on.”

“Tales of the Trailhawk,” Shows 2014 Renegade Trailhawk Compact Jeep Is Ready for Any Terrain

The new 2014 Jeep Renegade may be the smallest Jeep in the lineup, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less capable or durable. Don’t be so quick to underestimate the rounded compact Jeep! The brand has created a video series titled, “Tales of the Trailhawk,” that shows how the Renegade Trailhawk, the toughest off-roading model of the Renegades, dominates on all terrains just like its larger counterparts.

Car Scoops says the videos “show the Renegade tackling water, angles and sand with apparent ease.” The footage is able to show all of the 2014 Renegade Trailhawk compact Jeep’s abilities and how they are no different than larger Jeep models. If anything, the Renegade’s smaller size is a benefit. It allows the vehicle to maneuver and handle much easier than bigger off-roaders and take rugged terrain in stride.

This tiny Jeep offers a fun driving experience while being practical enough for daily commutes. Car owners will not have any issues trying to park the Renegade, which will fit comfortably in those tight spaces you could never get a Wrangler into.

Jeep Brand Lineup

2015 Jeep Renegade

Here at Rochester Hills Chrysler Jeep, we’ve always thought of the Jeep brand as a rather singular talent. The brand does one thing—makes off-road capable SUVs—and does it better than any other automaker in the world. So, we’re certainly not complaining or calling the brand a one-trick-pony. However, we’re still excited to report that, when the 2015 Jeep Renegade hits dealerships in the next few months, the Jeep brand will now have a full, diverse lineup of eight distinct vehicles.

Those vehicles include the Cherokee, Compass, Grand Cherokee, Grand Cherokee SRT, Patriot, Renegade, Wrangler, and Wrangler Unlimited, all of which offer their own unique talents while maintaining their quintessential Jeep flair. “Now in its eighth decade of legendary heritage, the Jeep brand continues to deliver an open invitation to live life to the fullest by offering a full line of vehicles that provide owners with a sense of safety and security to handle any adventure with confidence,” a Jeep press release stated. “Since 1941, when the first Jeep vehicle was born, the brand has continued to engineer and produce unique, versatile and capable vehicles.”

The new Jeep Renegade will allow the brand to make a foray into the small SUV segment, bringing the joys of Jeep to even more customers than ever before. Come see us at Rochester Hills Chrysler Jeep to be one of those customers yourself!

2015 Jeep Renegade Take 2

A renegade is defined by Merriam Webster as “someone or something that causes trouble and cannot be controlled.” The all-new 2015 Jeep Renegade will be precisely that. It won’t be controlled by traditional driving barriers, built to travel off the beaten bath and then some. It will cause trouble for competitors in the market

 

The 2015 Jeep Renegade was introduced earlier this March at the 2014 Geneva International Motor Show, but likely won’t be in American showrooms until the first quarter of 2015. While the 2015 Jeep Renegade is built for adventure, with tow hooks, 4×4 capability and 17-inch off-road aluminum wheels, it also has a relaxed side as well.

By that we mean the Renegade isn’t just for the adventurer, but for the person who wants to be able to comfortably seat five people and still have lots of cargo room available; who wants a way to let the sun shine in their car through the My Sky™ sun roof – a system of two fully lockable or removable roof panels; and who wants the option of living the Jeep lifestyle in a small SUV.

As mentioned before, the 2015 Jeep Renegade won’t be available until next year so to tie you over, come in and check out our wide selection of other great Jeeps at Rochester Hills Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram.
