This is yet another new Fiat-Chrysler collaboration – the Fiat Freemont is a tough-looking crossover 7-seater vehicle for the European market, based on the Dodge Journey but with an updated fascia and tighter suspension settings to suit European driver preferences.

The Dodge Journey that this Fiat Freemont was based on was just unveiled in November last year at the LA auto show. The Fiat Freemont will make its public debut at the Geneva show this year. The Freemont will replace the Fiat Ulysee, and frankly it really looks so much more appealing than the PSA-Fiat collaboration Eurovan-derived Fiat Ulysee.

The people mover will be front wheel drive, and will initially be offered in Europe with two variations of Fiat’s 2.0 litre MultiJet diesel making 140 horses and 170 horses respectively. A 3.6 litre Chrysler Pentastar petrol V6 will be offered later with all-wheel drive.

The Freemont will be imported into Europe from the Toluca Car Assembly plant in Mexico, where both the Freemont and the Journey is built.
