Chrysler has best sales year since 2007

Chrysler's U.S. sales jumped 21 percent last year, the carmaker's strongest performance since 2007.

The company's impressive increase outpaced the U.S. auto industry, which is expected to post a 13 percent gain for 2012. Chrysler's sales were a strong sign that Americans felt more confident about the economy as they replaced aging cars and trucks last year.

For December, Chrysler's sales rose 10 percent to 152,367 cars and trucks, led by the Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV, Ram pickup and Chrysler 300 luxury car.
