Jeep Sales Expected to Grow by 20 Percent Overseas Says Brand's CEO

Jeep is one of the few American vehicle brands that has true international appeal. Outside of North America, Jeeps are popular in Europe and also parts of the Pacific Rim.

And in 2009, Jeep sold a total of 60,888 vehicles in international markets. So far, this year, the brand shows signs of besting that total by a considerable margin 67,029 had been sold from January to November 2010, a 22 percent increase in demand over the same period a year earlier.

Jeep brand CEO Mike Manley, said that he expects demand to increase still further and is looking for around 20 percent growth in sales outside of North America, spurred by the updated 2011 Grand Cherokee and Compass models.

Manley also said that "diesel engines are expected to account for 20 to 30 percent of Jeep sales outside of North America, with most of the diesels being sold in Europe."

Every Jeep model sold outside North America will offer a diesel option, the Patriot (shown here in UK spec form, recently got a new diesel motor), while the new Grand Cherokee is slated to receive one in March 2011.

Just had mine serviced and had a Patriot diesel as a loaner. Quite torquey but not a very refined unit. I think a replacement diesel is to come soon! I think the current engine is sourced from VW.

Well, the Beijing Jeep 2500, 4000/4700 is basically the Jeep Cherokee (XJ) which was produced from 1984 to 2001 in the USA. This pic was taken in 2007 in China, not sure if they are still manufacturing them but they were in high demand in China for years, that's why the tooling went there.

A few XJ owners would try and get parts from them...
