AUBURN HILLS, Mich., June 4 -- With summer just around the corner, AutoWeek magazine named the 2009 Jeep Wrangler as one of its top 10 Coolest Summer Cars for 2009.

"It doesn't get any more all-American than a Jeep Wrangler," said Dutch Mandel - Editor and Associate Publisher, AutoWeek. "And with its removable top and off-roading ability, you can drive it anywhere and have a ball doing it."

Jeep Wrangler continued its strong upward sales trend for the fifth month in a row, with May 2009 sales of 9,294 units. Year-to-date, 44,080 Jeep Wranglers have been sold, up 11 percent from last year. Jeep Wrangler has a 33 percent share of the Compact SUV segment.

Jeep Wrangler Unlimited four-door also continues to be a hit, comprising 60 percent of all 4X4 Wrangler sales for 2009.

"More than 68 years ago, Jeep created the SUV category with the introduction of the Wrangler," said Mike Accavitti - Director Brand Marketing, Chrysler LLC. "Today, our Jeep Wrangler remains an icon, set apart by its purpose-built design and ultimate capability."
