    November 2012 a BIG Month for Jeep!

    001-2013-jeep-wrangler-rubicon-1353513760.jpg

    Just got the following a press release from Chrysler. It's aways great to see Jeep doing so well - Go JEEP!!

    • Jeep® Wrangler sets sales record for month of November with 12 percent increase
    • Jeep Wrangler receives two 2013 Best Resale Value Awards from Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com
    • Jeep brand introduces new, limited-production Wrangler Rubicon 10th-Anniversary Edition at Los Angeles Auto Show

    Jeep® Brand

    Jeep brand sales were down 3 percent in November due to the end of Jeep Liberty production in August and some lingering effects of Hurricane Sandy on Chrysler Group dealerships in the Northeast, one of the Jeep brand’s strongest markets. The Jeep Wrangler set a sales record for the month of November with its 12 percent sales gain. For the third consecutive year, the Wrangler has been named Best Resale Value in its class by Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com. The Wrangler also landed on kbb.com’s Top 10 list for the second year in a row. These prestigious awards honor vehicles expected to maintain the greatest proportion of their original list price after five years of ownership. November was the eighth month this year in which the Wrangler has set a sales record, including an all-time sales record in June.

    The Jeep Grand Cherokee – the most awarded SUV ever – had its best November sales since 2005. The Grand Cherokee posted sales of 13,619 units, the model’s second best sales month this year. Sales of the Jeep Patriot, designed to appeal to compact-SUV buyers who want traditional Jeep styling with best-in-class off-road capability at an affordable price, were up 4 percent, the model’s best November in five years. The Jeep brand introduced the new 2013 Jeep Patriot Freedom Edition in November. It joins the previously announced Wrangler Freedom Edition as a tribute to United States military members past and present.

    The Jeep brand, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the wildly popular Jeep Wrangler Rubicon model, also introduced a new, limited-production 2013 Wrangler Rubicon 10th Anniversary Edition at the Los Angeles Auto Show last week. It is the most capable factory-produced Jeep Wrangler ever, packed with equipment that die-hard, off-road enthusiasts love. The Rubicon 10th Anniversary edition will arrive in showrooms in the spring of 2013.

    Looks like November was a BIG month for Jeep in Canada too, eh

    Canadian sales up again
    Jeep Wrangler continued to a new monthly record of 1,140 sales, 33% over last year. Through the first 11 months of the year, Jeep Wrangler has set an all-new monthly sales record every month and has already shattered the full year sales record set in 2011.

    "all-time sales record in June"

    Pulled this from the article as I'm proud to be a small part of a big record. I got delivery of my JKRU in June. And, it's been a blast as it's seen numerous trails and a summer family vacation to Utah's Bryce and Zion as well as Sedona. Done them all bone stock too and still lovin the life!

    I think it has to do with the new 3.6 Panastar motor and the new Interior that help the sales.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
