AUBURN HILLS (WKZO) -- Chrysler sales rose eleven percent in April over the same period last year.  This marks the automaker's best April since 2007 and the 37th consecutive month of year-over-year sales gains.  Ram Truck brand sales were up 49-percent for the month, the largest percentage sales gain of any Chrysler Group.

Seven Chrysler vehicles set sales records. Those include the Jeep Compass compact SUV and the Jeep Wrangler as well as the Dodge Challenger, Dodge Journey, Fiat 500, and Ram Cargo Van.  The all-new Dodge Dart compact car had its best sales month since the vehicle was launched in June of last year.
