2012 Dodge Journey
2012 Dodge Journey
The crossover field is expanding rapidly as minivan-shy families abandon traditional SUVs in favor of vehicles with at least somewhat better fuel economy. The Dodge Journey sits toward the smaller end of the crossover spectrum, yet it still manages to cram in an optional third row in a bid to appeal to more buyers. Don't expect to put adults back there, though. Even the second row is marginal for adults, but they both work fine for kids. Two nice features for youngsters are built-in booster seats and a split second-row seat that puts offspring within easy reach of Mom and Dad. If those parents are on a tight budget, Dodge now offers the American Value Package model, which starts at a hair below $20,000 and comes with standard features such as air-conditioning; a 4.3-inch Uconnect media center; power windows, locks, and mirrors; and remote keyless entry. If power and towing ability are more important than price, the SXT, Crew, and R/T models come with a 3.6-liter V-6 that makes 283 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque and is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Overall, the Journey is a serious contender in the crossover category. It's quiet, rides well, and has an interior that doesn't feel like a cheap plastic prison.

There have been many changes in Chrysler's product portfolio since its 2009 bankruptcy, and plenty of news about what's coming to Chrysler showrooms over the next few years has made headlines in the past few weeks. Lucky for us, our own Georg Kacher got the full low-down from Fiat-Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne himself in the July 2012 issue of Automobile Magazine.
2012 Lancia Flavia Front Three Quarter
It seems like a distant memory: Fiat imports its products to the United States, but the cars see few buyers in the new market. Today the tables are turned: imported Chrysler products, badged as Fiats and Lancias, are met with mixed success in Europe.

Dodge will be expanding the availability of the base 2.4-liter I-4 on its hot-selling Journey. The 173-hp four-pot will now come standard on the mid-level Journey SXT.

I had a vague notion that the Dodge Journey would be a cheap, dull, and disappointing small crossover -- it was conceived five years ago during some of Chrysler Group's less successful years. I was pleasantly surprised, then, to drive the Journey and find it mature, stylish, and remarkably comfortable. Much credit goes to the Pentastar V-6, as excellent here as in any other new Chrysler vehicle; it provides ample power while remaining quiet and smooth. I really dig the LED taillights, and the interior (freshened for 2011) impressed me with its attractive materials and cool ambient lighting.
