Dodge recently released a sportier version of its popular Journey model called the Journey Crossroad.
In Geneva, Fiat took the opportunity to unveil the Freemont which is essentially a clone of the U.S. vehicle. In both cases we note that unfortunately, there is no increase in ground clearance compared to the standard models.
They are distinguished by:
- Their aluminum skid plates
- Their blackened grille
- Their redesigned bumpers
- Their platinum roof bars
- Crossroad and Cross logos
- Their Hyper Black 19-inch rims
Inside, there are heated seats and Light Slate Grey leather stitching along with an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Uconnect.
Engines for the Europeans
The engines Fiat intends to equip the Freemont Cross with are quite different from those used by the American crossover and meet European requirements for respecting the environment.
Manual and automatic six-speed transmissions will be offered, coupled with either front wheel drive or AWD for an additional premium.
The Fiat Freemont Cross production will begin In Europe this fall.
