DETROIT (AP) — Chrysler says its U.S. sales rose 8 percent in January as it posted strong growth despite the frigid weather that gripped much of the nation.
The automaker says it sold just over 127,000 vehicles for its best January in six years.
But analysts don't expect Chrysler to be the norm as companies report sales figures Monday. They're expecting little or no sales growth compared to a year ago because multiple snowstorms and cold snaps kept buyers from showrooms.
Analysts still expect sales to be over 16 million this year — a return to pre-recession levels — as customers go shopping again once the weather gets warm.
Chrysler sales were led by the Chrysler 200 midsize car and the Ram pickup. Both posted gains of over 20 percent.
