The next model is said to bring the much needed upgrades which will be drastic, and will concern every aspect of the car. This is a much needed move from the Dodge Company, given that they haven’t made any significant update on this model since 2008. Which is good news, if you liked the previous car. Regardless, in the all-time changing market, success lies in keeping the pace. The new Journey Crossroad brings small modifications, better look and the anticipation of the next year’s version.

This comes with an old 4-speed automatic transmission which is in desperate need of an update. The second engine is a 3.6-liter V-6 DOHC flex-fuel engine with a all-wheel drive and a 6-speed automatic. The problem with this motors is the fuel consumption.
