Chrysler Canada November sales rise almost 13 percent


TORONTO, Dec 3 (Reuters) - Chrysler's Canadian armreported a near 13 percent jump in November sales, its bestperformance since 2001, the automaker said on Tuesday, bolsteredin part by strong sales of both its 2013 Jeep Cherokee and theall-new 2014 model.

It sold 19,206 cars and trucks, compared with 17,013 soldlast November, and extended its year-over-year sales growth to48 months.

Car sales rose 9 percent to 3,053 last month, while trucksales climbed 13.7 percent to 16,153.

Overall vehicle sales for Chrysler Canada are up 6.8 percentso far this year, and are already ahead of full year 2012 sales,Chrysler said.

In the United States, aggressive discounting and thecontinued popularity of big pickup trucks helped propel Novembervehicle sales well past expectations.
