(Reuters) - Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV <FCAU.N> <FCHA.MI> on Thursday reported a 15.7 percent rise in U.S. auto sales for October, helped by higher demand for its Jeep sport utility vehicles and Ram pick-up trucks.

The automaker said it sold 177,391 vehicles last month, compared with 153,373 units a year earlier, when sales were inflated by vehicle replacement demand in the aftermath of hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
