Dodge will stop producing the Journey crossover after 2020

July 4, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

An official representative of the American brand confirmed in an interview that the serial production of the Dodge Journey crossover will be discontinued in the fourth quarter of this year.

At the moment, it is already known that the Dodge Caravan, which can rightfully be called the progenitor of all minivans and the creator of an entire segment of family cars, will not be produced after the 2020 model year.

The Journey mid-size crossover, as many thought, will face the same fate.

Automakers rarely make official announcements about the cessation of further production of a particular model, but since its debut in the 2009 model year, Journey has not changed much.

Unlike those vehicles that still sell pretty well, despite their age, Journey did not earn much popularity among motorists. According to official information, almost 50 percent of all produced crossover specimens of the 2019 model are still in car dealerships awaiting buyers, and this was before the coronavirus changed everything in this world. In the 2020 model year, the automaker left only two trim levels for Journey, and this is almost always a sure sign that the model will soon disappear altogether from the company’s price lists.

To be absolutely sure that the American brand decided to stop production of its mid-size crossover, foreign publications contacted Dodge in order to know about the future of the crossover, and a company representative confirmed that yes, this model has no future. The termination of serial production of the Journey model is scheduled for the end of the fourth quarter of this year – that is, 2020 model year will be the last for this car. Meanwhile, the production of Caravan is already finished.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that Dodge published a teaser for its updated model range 2021. The press service of the American automaker published an interesting video – it shows the Dodge model line of 2021. HEMI engines performed the US anthem.
