Dodge has launched a facelifted Journey for 2011 – but the model won’t be coming to the UK after Dodge was axed from these shores by parent firm Fiat.
The revised models get some subtle styling changes including new front and rear bumpers, a revised front grille, new LED rear lights and a new set of 19-inch alloy wheels.
Interior upgrades include a new instrument cluster, a new dashboard, a new steering wheel, new seats and softer materials for the centre console and armests.
Engine options will include a new 3.5-litre V6 engine with 287bhp 260lbt, increases of 48bhp and 28lb ft over the 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 engine it replaces.
Dynamic tweaks include more responsive handling, a new steering system, improved tyres and a retuned suspension swt-up.
Sales will start later this year for customers in the US ahead of the first deliveries in early 2011. Dodge was finally axed in the UK last month when the Journey was deleted from price lists following poor sales, a feat also suffered earlier this year by Dodge’s Nitro and Caliber models.
