Jeep Wrangler so popular Chrysler to add workers

More good news for Chrysler.

Chrysler Group plans to add workers at the Toledo plant to build more Jeeps, and might add a third shift at the Ram truck plant.

In what's becoming a string of good-news announcements nearly as striking as the bad-news disclosures of just three years ago, Fiat-controlled Chrysler says demand for its Wrangler is so strong it needs to hire more people to build more Jeeps.

And it's mulling a third shift at Warren, Mich., where it builds the Ram full-size pickup. Ram's updated for 2013...

I've also read that Chrysler has had the highest sales in 5 years...

I'll bet the 3.6 PentaStar engine contributed to the boost in sales for the Wrangler line.

I was weighing the decision of a Wrangler or a Challenger before I bought my Challenger. The bad reviews of the Wrangler steered me to the Challenger so I traded my Charger in on it. I still like the Wrangler though.

In the month of May, it set an all-time record. The Wrangler is kicking ass and taking names. Just wait until that VM diesel is in the Wrangler. It's going in the Grand Cherokee first for 2014MY. It won't be long after that until the Wrangler gets it.

2008: 17,423
2009: 25,852
2010: 36,791

Mine was actually green. I had a tan hard top to go with the tan soft top.
