This marks the 42nd-consecutive month of year-over-year sales gains.

The Ram Truck Brand’s 8 percent increase in sales was the largest sales gain of any Chrysler brand. The first of the all-new 2014 Ram ProMaster vans began rolling into dealerships across the country in September.

The ProMaster lineup offers a list of key best-in-class features including fuel economy, cargo capacity and total cost of ownership. The new 2014 Ram Heavy Duty pickups, with best-in-class towing and best-in-class, begin arriving in dealerships this month.

Four Chrysler models set sales records in September: the Jeep Compass, Jeep Patriot, Dodge Dart compact sedan and Dodge Challenger. Sales of the Dodge Durango full-size SUV were up 66 percent, the largest percentage sales gain by any Chrysler Group vehicle in September.

“Even though industry sales dipped during September, Chrysler Group still managed to eke out a slight sales increase for the month,” said Reid Bigland, Head of U.S. Sales. “
