The Dodge Journey is a mid-size crossover SUV built by the Dodge division of Chrysler. It started as a 2009 model in the lineup in late 2008 and was substantially updated for the 2011 model year. Unveiled first at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show, and later appearing at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Journey identified internally as the JC49, has an almost identical wheelbase 113.8 in (2,891 mm) as the outgoing Chrysler Pacifica, and shares a modified platform with the Dodge Avenger. Featuring 5 or (5+2) passenger seating with four forward-hinged doors, and as with past models of the Chrysler minivans, the Journey is available with a four-cylinder engine. The Journey's exterior was styled by Chrysler's Ryan Nagode. Production versions of 2009 model year vehicles went on sale in March 2008 in North America, and mid-2008 elsewhere. A version for the Chinese market was unveiled at Auto China in 2008, marketed as the JCUV. Initial model production began in 2009.
