TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Ohio-built Jeep vehicles set sales records last month.

Chrysler’s U.S. dealers sold a record number of Toledo-built Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Cherokee sport utility vehicles in May. That helped Jeep to its best sales month ever.

The automaker said it sold 19,235 Wranglers last month, shattering the previous mark of 16,272 set a year ago. Dealers also sold 15,992 Cherokees, the most since the vehicle went on the market in late October.

The Blade reports that the two Ohio-made Jeeps accounted for more than half of all U.S. Jeep sales in the month.

Jeep has become Chrysler Group’s top-selling brand in the United States, with sales up 58 percent over last year. The brand set all-time sales records in each of the last three months.
