Chrysler sold more than 114,000 cars and trucks last month compared with 90,000 a year earlier.
The company was among the first of the car companies to report sales figures on Tuesday. Sales overall were expected to rise last month to the best pace in two years. People who put off buying cars last summer because Japanese brands were in tight supply returned to the market in October.
Chrysler says its sales were led by the Chrysler 200 midsize sedan, the Jeep Compass compact sport utility vehicle and the Ram pickup truck.
