This just in from Bloomberg, it turns out that Jeep is a big money maker for Fiat-Chrysler. The brand sold 15,940 Grand Cherokees in the US last month, which is 26 percent more that a year earlier. And there is more good news. Jeep sold almost as many Cherokee models last month as well.

When you compare sales of the Cherokee to sales of the Liberty, which it replaced, the improvement is staggering. Fiat-Chrysler sold 36,096 Cherokees in the first quarter, which is a huge improvement over the 4,972 Liberty models that it sold in the same period last year.

The Jeep Renegade should continue this success. In the first two months of this year, compact crossovers accounted for 11.6 percent of all US vehicles sold, up from 9.7 percent a year earlier.

So it seems that in a segment that's growing, Jeep is coming out with just the right product. I anticipate the Jeep renegade to be an even bigger success than the Cherokee was/is.
