Chrysler Group LLC’s new head of U.S. sales will try to duplicate the gains he made for the automaker in Canada, where it’s almost tied for the No. 2 seller of vehicles and has already exceeded market-share targets set for 2014.

Chrysler Group LLC recalled about 630,000 Jeep sport-utility vehicles to fix transmission leaks and other mechanical defects, two days after the company said it won’t recall 2.7 million other SUVs alleged by U.S. regulators to have faulty fuel systems.
