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.

On my way home from a meal tonight I saw a Dodge dealership being dismantled! A victory for common sense. An ill informed move to sell "garbage" has resulted in failure. Good riddance, this is one journey I won't miss.

Am i totally off the mark to suggest this then could become the new Multipla

I think its definately going to replace the Multipla in the Lineup of vehicles, despite being slightly larger. Hopefully they wont call it multipla though because thats the gayest name in history.

To be honest, I hope Fiat dont change the styling of it if they do rebadge it, I really like the sort of Angry Muscular stance, I hate wishy washy euro design.

I was going to ask "who cares?", but clearly some people do...
