The Dodge Journey is a mid-size crossover wagon that was unveiled at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show . It has seen mediocre sales since its debut with 47,097 units sold in 2008 and 53,826 in 2009. With the explosion of hatchbacks in the market recently and the void of hatchbacks in Dodge’s lineup, it leaves tuning companies with little options to choose from. Now, it seems that the tuning form, Irmscher, has decided to play around with the possibilities by Dodge. It’s not every day we see a tuned-up Dodge model, especially a Journey model, but the German tuner Irmscher decided to give the vehicle a chance and the result looks quite promising.
Although the changes are purely cosmetic, the tuner managed to offer a sporty and aggressive look to a model with little success on the market. The exterior package includes: a metallic black finish with twin-rally stripes in vintage orange (Inferno Red Metallic color with black stripes comes as an option), lower front apron, roof spoiler, chrome tail pipe, and tinted rear windows.
The interior gets a leather treatment for the instrument panel, aluminum sport pedals, a chunkier leather sports steering wheel, chrome/aluminum accents, and unique floor mats.
In Germany, prices will start at €31,190.
