An SUV produced by Dodge beginning with model year 2009.

History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Dodge Journey page on 3 May 2020, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

The Dodge Journey is a mid-size crossover SUV manufactured and marketed by FCA's Dodge brand since model year 2009, with a minor facelift for the 2011 model year.

With styling by Ryan Nagode, the Journey was marketed globally in both left and right hand drive. In many markets it was marketed as the Fiat Freemont.

The Dodge Journey debuted at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show, later appearing at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show.

Identified internally as the JC49, the Journey shares a modified platform with the Dodge Avenger and an identical wheelbase to the outgoing short wheel base (SWB) Chrysler minivan, a slightly shorter wheelbase 113.8 in (2,891 mm) than the outgoing Chrysler Pacifica. Featuring 5- or 7-passenger seating with four forward-hinged doors, the Journey is available with a four-cylinder engine, as with past models of the Chrysler SWB minivans.

Production versions of 2009 model year vehicles went on sale in 2008 for the 2009 model-year in North America, and mid-2008 elsewhere. A version for the Chinese market was unveiled at Auto China in 2008, marketed as the JCUV. Initial model production began in 2009. Freemont went on sale in Russia in 2013.

Halfway through the 2009 model year, the model name emblem moved to the right-end of the trunk lid, replaced by the brand emblem.

2011 update

Revisions for the 2011 model-year include modifications to the grille, lower front fascia, redesigned interior, suspension, steering, powertrain, and use of Dodge's new logo, launched in 2011, as well as LED Taillights.

For the 2012 model year, the Journey became Dodge's smallest SUV after FCA stopped manufacturing the Nitro. For the 2013 model year, Dodge released the Journey Blacktop, with 19-inch gloss black aluminum wheels and center caps, a gloss black grille, gloss black bezel headlamps, gloss black lower front fascia accent and gloss black exterior mirrors. In 2014, the Journey Crossroad was introduced with chrome accents along the lower part of the body and in the interior, a large bumper, smoked head- and taillights, a black grille, rocker panels, rails for a roof rack, and a skid plate simile at the rear. Chrysler added the revised Dodge logo with two slanted rectangles for the 2013 Model Year. For the 2016 model-year, the Journey's AVP and Limited trims were discontinued and the Crossroad Plus trim was added and also for the 2017 model-year, the R/T trim is replaced by the GT trim.
