In November, Chrysler Group continued its streak of monthly sales growth, and has had 44 consecutive months of year-over-year sales increases in the U.S.

By now you’ve heard the good news: Chrysler Group’s U.S. sales up 16% from November 2012. That’s 142,275 vehicles sold in November 2013.

So, let’s take a deeper dive and look behind the numbers for the top seven highlights from our U.S. November sales:
