Fiat Chrysler Automobiles on Thursday reported a total sale of 177,391 vehicles in the U.S. market in October, recording a 16 percent increase compared with the same month last year.

Fiat Chrysler said its October U.S. sales were driven by the Jeep, Ram, Chrysler, Dodge and Alfa Romeo brands, which all posted increases over the same period a year ago. Dodge led the gainers with a 38 percent increase in sales.

The Italian-American automaker said its retail sales in the U.S. market totaled 141,200 vehicles in October, while fleet sales were 36,191 vehicles.

During the same month, another major U.S. automaker Ford's sales in its home market totaled 192,616 vehicles, representing a 3.9 percent decline.

Ford reported a 4.9 percent decline in truck sales, and a 17.1 percent fall in car sales. Only its SUV sales rose 6.7 percent in October.

However, Ford's average transaction price hit 36,800 U.S. dollars, up 1,400 dollars year on year.

Ford vice president Mark LaNeve, who is in charge of the U.S. market, said that Ford SUVs were operating above the record pace they set last year and van sales continued to post strong gains.

"Our strategy to prioritize our trucks, SUVs and vans is paying off with October running at record level transaction pricing," he added.
