Sales of the Toledo-built Jeep Liberty were up 34 percent in July compared to last year, helping to lead the Jeep brand to a 7 percent increase.

Overall, Chrysler Group LLC said it sold 126,089 vehicles in July, up 13 percent from 2011.

“July was another solid month for Chrysler Group as we again demonstrated our disciplined and methodical approach to growing sales and profits,” said Reid Bigland, Chrysler's head of U.S. sales.

With 12,216 sold, the Toledo-built Wrangler remained Jeep's top-selling model, though sales fell 15 percent compared to July, 2011. In that month, Chrysler sold 14,355 Wranglers for a then all time monthly sales record.

The record was topped in May and again in June of this year.

For the year, Wrangler sales are up 23 percent, while Liberty sales are up 35 percent.
