So how long will we have Journeys, anyway?

by David Zatz on

The Fiat Freemont and Dodge Journey, in their current form, are scheduled to stop production near the end of 2017. They might or might not have a short 2018 model year.

Sergio Marchionne said a future Dodge Journey would be completely different; the company might keep the name, but Mr. Marchionne did not say it would or would not.

In the past, Allpar has speculated that the Journey’s current people-mover form would move to Chrysler, which has been marked as the “new Plymouth” — the mass market brand — while Dodge would get a rear wheel drive crossover with higher performance potential.

The next Journey will definitely not have a minivan basis, according to Mr. Marchionne. Its current Mitsubishi-based platform is unlikely to survive a new generation.

The current Dodge Caravan is slated to end at the same time; the Town & Country is likely to end sooner. Whether Dodge will keep either name has not been officially announced, but Town & Country is likely to finally be abandoned.
