Fiat Chrysler Automobiles US LLC is coming off a strong April in sales.  In the United States, the automaker moved 189,027 units, a 6 percent increase compared with April figures of last year at 178,652 units.

This is the Auburn Hills, Michigan based automaker’s best April sales since 2007.

Nine FCA vehicles posted sales records last month, making April 2015 their 61st consecutive month of year-over-year sales increases.

The Dodge Challenger, Dart and Journey all saw increases in sales while Ram Truck and Ram ProMaster logged their best April sales ever.

Jeep country was booming with the Wrangler, Patriot and Cherokee, the latter recording a 27 percent increase in sales from April of last year.

The Jeep Renegade stood out among its off road peers last month especially.

“Our all-new Jeep Renegade small SUV is off to an exceptional start with more than 4,200 units sold in its first full month,” revealed Reid Bigland, Head of U.S. Sales for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.

The Renegade’s solid figures were an essential part of FCA’s successful April 2015.

“This helped to propel our Jeep brand to its best monthly sales ever,” he said.

Sales were strong for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles in Canada and Mexico during April 2015 too.

In Canada, a total of 27,473 vehicles were sold, making it the best April sales there since 1989.

In Mexico, Ram sales jumped 56 percent in the best April since 2010 for the truck.
