Detroit • Chrysler Group's second-quarter net profit rose 22 percent, fueled by rising sales in the U.S.
The company on Wednesday reported that it made $619 million in the April-through-June quarter, compared with $507 million a year ago.
Revenue rose 14 percent to $20.5 billion.
Chrysler says its worldwide sales grew 12 percent in the quarter to 723,000 vehicles, with most of the increase in the U.S. Retail sales in the U.S. rose 16 percent, largely because of gains by the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ram pickup.
Chrysler's U.S. market share rose almost a full percentage point to 12.1 percent.
