It is because of the reorganization of the brand within the Chrysler Group, is expected cancellation of the Dodge in Europe. The car, however, does not disappear because the models that can operate commercially and will be rebranded absorbed into the Fiat range, as is the case of the Journey, now Fremont.
A curiosity: the Fiat Freemont will be manufactured at the Toluca Mexico, the same factory that produced the 500 is destined for North America. An important technical innovation is represented by the replacement of the diesel engine 140 hp with the original Volkswagen 2.0-liter Fiat 170 HP: This is the first application engineering in Turin on a Chrysler model. For the rest of the Freemont resume features the latest evolution of the Journey, which recently presented to Dodge a facelift.
