About Dodge Journey
The Dodge Journey had its début at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show, and it was then followed by the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show.
The Journey, codenamed JC49 internally, shares a modified platform with the Dodge Avenger and a wheelbase that is identical to the outgoing short wheel base (SWB) Chrysler minivan, measuring 113.8 in (2,891 mm) shorter than the outgoing Chrysler Pacifica.
In North America, production versions of the 2009 model year automobiles went on sale in 2008, and internationally in mid-2008. In 2008, the JCUV, a variant for the Chinese market, was debuted at Auto China. In 2009, the first models were produced. In 2013, Freemont was put up for sale in Russia. Depending on the market, the Journey was available in both LHD and RHD configurations.
The SE (powered by a 2.4L I4), the SXT, and the R/T (both powered by a 3.5L V6) were the trim levels available in North America from 2009 to 2010. (AWD).
Modifications to the grille, lower front fascia, revamped interior, suspension, steering, powertrain, and adoption of Dodge’s new logo, which debuted in 2011, as well as LED taillights, were made for the 2011 model year. The SE and SXT trim levels have been replaced, while the Crew and Lux trim levels have been added to the roster. New Uconnect 3 infotainment systems with 4.3-inch (4.3″) or 8.4-inch (8.4″) LCD color touchscreen screens, as well as a full-color LCD Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) in the instrument cluster, debuted in the 2011 Journey. On all Journey models, the Keyless Enter-‘n’Go System with keyless entry and push-button start became standard.
After FCA discontinued production of the Nitro, the Journey became Dodge’s smallest SUV for the 2012 model year. For 2012, the SE and SXT trims replace the Express and Mainstreet trims, respectively. For the US market, an American Value Package (AVP) model has been added, which is priced lower than the SE. Dodge introduced the Journey Blacktop for the 2013 model year, which featured 19-inch gloss black aluminum wheels and center caps, a gloss black grille, gloss black bezel headlights, a gloss black lower front fascia accent, and gloss black exterior mirrors. The Journey Crossroad debuted in 2014 with chrome highlights on the lower body and interior, smoked headlights and taillights, a black grille, rocker panels, roof rack rails, and a skid plate replica at the back.
For the 2013 Model Year, Chrysler debuted a new Dodge emblem with two slanted rectangles. The AVP and Limited versions of the Journey were removed for the 2016 model year, while the Crossroad Plus trim was added, and the R/T trim was replaced by the GT trim for the 2017 model year.
