Default Dodge Journey

Glad to see Chrysler seeing the value in a station wagon. Often thought it was one of the most practical forms of the automotive design, and finally it's getting another go in the land of Mopar.

Sucks that they're on this limited trans thing. While I understand this trend, I don't like it. Lots of gadgets. Looks like a Caliber on roids.

Cool gadgetry. Kind of like the Aztec, except not ugly.

Skippy, I'm having trouble understanding what you are trying to say.

The Journey appears to be an attempt to make a "crossover" (a station wagon under a new and more "attractive" name) in the current market. Whether this succeeds or not will be interesting to watch. Chrysler has made a few station wagons in the recent years. Some have been successful [Pt Crusier & Caliber (so far)], others haven't (the Magnum & Pacifica). I'm not sold on the whole return to the station wagon/"Crossover" market thus far, I think it will be popular for a little while with only a few models being successful with a lot of models that attempt and fail to succeed.

I honestly think Chrysler should invest less in niche markets that certain manufactures already have control of and instead focus on providing a more competitive line in the mainstream products, but I could be wrong about this.
