Chrysler Group LLC's U.S. sales surged 16 percent in January, providing initial confirmation of analyst expectations that 2013 will be a robust one for the recovering industry.
The Auburn Hills, Mich., company, a unit of Italy’s Fiat SpA, said sales of its Ram pickup jumped 14 percent last month from a year earlier. Its midsize Chrysler 200 saw a 26 percent sales hike while sales of the Dodge Avenger sedan popped 69 percent.
