DETROIT (AP) -- Chrysler and Nissan each posted double-digit U.S. sales gains last month as they convinced buyers to buy pickups and small SUVs.

Nissan says its sales were up almost 16 percent to just over 115,000 despite repeated winter storms that struck much of the country. Chrysler sales rose 11 percent to nearly 155,000.

Chrysler was led by the Ram pickup with a 26 percent sales gain. Nissan was led by the Rogue crossover SUV with sales up almost 73 percent.

All automakers are due to report February sales on Monday. Analysts expect only about a 1 percent sales increase as other automakers report small increases or sales declines.
