Automakers report a mixed bag of September sales by Ben Geier @FortuneMagazine 10:10 AM EDT E-mail Tweet Facebook Google Plus Linkedin Share icons It was a mixed bag for car sales in September, with some carmakers seeing continued growth, while others saw sales skid. Chrysler sold 169,890 vehicles, a 19% jump over last September and the company’s best September sales figure since 2005. One of the big winners in terms of models was Jeep, which posted a 47% jump from last September and reported the highest September sales number ever. Ram Pickups performed well, as did the Chrysler 200 series. For the current year, Chrysler has sold 1,556,059 cars — a 15% jump from the 1,357,003 sold at the same point last year. This was Chrysler’s 54th straight month of year-over-year sales growth, a general industry trend of growth in the years since the U.S. economy began to emerge from the 2008 financial crisis. Ford F , meanwhile, saw overall sales dip 3% year-over-year to 180,175 units. Retail sales were actually up 2%, but fleet sales saw a big drop of 14%. Fleet sales were also down year-over-year for August. This month, Ford was led by the Fusion and the Explorer. The Fusion, a midsize car, had its best September ever, while the Explorer had its best since 2006. Ford’s year-to-date sales were 1,816,829, representing about a 1% drop from 2013. General Motors GM , meanwhile, had a very good month, selling 223,437 cars, up 19% from a year ago. Retail sales were up 17% and fleet sales rose 30%. Sales of the compact Chevrolet Cruze rose 45%, and GM dominated the SUV landscape, selling 80% of the SUVs in America for the month. GM’s year-to-date commercial sales are up 24%. Japanese automaker Nissan has reported sales as well — it moved a total of 102,955 cars, up 18.5% from 86,868 in 2013. This includes Nissan and Infiniti cars; the 95,118 Nissan cars sold was the most ever in September. Toyota TM , however, saw sales decrease 2.5% last month, missing estimates.
