There has been a lot of change lately at Fiat-Chrysler as they’ve been reconsidering much of their five-year plan to compensate for the way the market has changed. While many of the major milestones they hoped to hit are still in place, little ones have been being made. Mainly it seems that there was no way to see just how popular Jeep was going to grow; that it would have such an explosion of popularity. Because of this, many resources have been diverted into keeping the Jeep enthusiasm. What may have this affected?
Automotive News has put out an article stating the upcoming Dodge Journey will still be keeping its older platform. It seemed like the Journey was due for something new, but Dodge is keeping things the same for the immediate future. This decision is set to be till the 2018 model year when the Journey may get that new platform.
This is all according to an un-named source, so take it with the grain of salt that comes with such news. It is certainly plausible. Dodge is making a shift to being the place for premium driving experiences, focusing much of their energy on performance, as seen in the Hellcat Charger and Challenger. It is possible that they have putting off an update to the Journey and other vehicles that use the platform to give them some wiggle room in development.
The future is bright at Fiat-Chrysler, no matter how you look at it. While it may take some time, I do see the Journey getting some loving attention that it deserve, it just needs time to get the dedicated care.
