The Dodge Journey is a mid-size crossover wagon that debuted at the 2007 Frankfurt Auto Show, with North American 2009my sales beginning in March 2008 and European sales to begin in mid 2008.

Identified internally as the JC49,[2] and sharing an almost identical wheelbase (113.8in) to the outgoing short-wheelbase Chrysler minivans, the Journey shares a modified platform from the Dodge Avenger, [3] features five (or 5+2) passenger seating with four forward-hinged doors, and as with past models of the outgoing short-wheelbase Chrysler minivans, is available with a four-cylinder engine.

As with the Dodge Avenger, the Journey’s exterior was styled by Chrysler’s Ryan Nagode. [4]

For the CUV’s introductory promotion, Dario Franchitti’s No. 40 Dodge Charger carried a “Journey” paint scheme for the 2008 Daytona 500 on February 15, 2008.[5]

The available four-cylinder is a 2.4 L (2360 cc, 144 cu in), with 173 horsepower (129 kW) and 166 pound-feet of torque, a version of the Chrysler’s GEMA, “world” four-cylinder engine shared with Hyundai and Mitsubishi. [1][6]

The 3.5 L (3518 cc, 215 cu in)[1] V6 is only available in North America, with the six-speed automatic transmission. Other markets will have the six-speed automatic transmission with the flex-fuel (E85 compatible) 2.7 liter V6. All wheel drive will only be available with a V6.
