Chrysler Canada announced that January 2014 was its 50th consecutive month of year-over-year sales growth, making it the longest sales streak in the Group’s history.
Last month, Chrysler Canada sold 17,698 vehicles compared, a four percent increase over January 2013, when the company delivered 17,013 units. With 596 units delivered, the Fiat brand posted a 82 percent increase, while the Dodge Grand Caravan minivan became the country's fourth selling vehicle with 3,030 examples.

Ram pickup sales grew one percent, from 5,405 to 5,433 units, representing the vehicle's best-ever January sales. The brand new 2014 Jeep Cherokee found 1,310 new customers the same month.

"In the history of Chrysler Canada, we have never had a stronger product lineup to fuel our efforts, leading to 50 months of year-over-year sales growth,” said Dave Buckingham, chief operating officer of Chrysler Canada. “With a revitalized product portfolio, including Canada’s only light-duty diesel truck and our all-new Jeep Cherokee with a segment-first 9-speed automatic transmission, we’re delivering vehicles that provide Canadian consumers exceptional style, design and technology along with improved performance and fuel economy.”

Meanwhile, Chrysler's US sales increased 8 percent in January, with Jeep, Fiat and Ram Truck being the Group's best-selling brands compared to the previous year.
