The Freemont is one of the first vehicles to be born out of the Fiat-Chrysler alliance and is based on the Dodge Journey. It is classified as a crossover and measures 489 cm long, 188 cm wide, and 172 cm high with a 289 cm wheelbase. The Fiat Freemont will initially come with a number of powertrain options, including a choice between two 2.0-liter MultiJet turbo diesel engines that produce 140 and 170 horsepower, respectively.
As Fiat turns over a new chapter in their partnership with Chrysler , the Italian automaker is getting ready to introduce a new member to their already growing family, the Fiat Freemont SUV.
The Freemont, which is based on the Dodge Journey , is one of the first vehicles to be born out of the Fiat-Chrysler alliance and is set to make its debut at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show with sales expected to begin sometime around the latter part of the year.
Pricing for the Freemont is still being kept under wraps with Fiat opting to release spec details of the new SUV leading up to its debut in Geneva this March. The Freemont is set to be produced at the company’s Mexican plant of Toluca where it will share the same roof as that of another Fiat vehicle that’s also making its way north of the border: the US version of the Fiat 500 .
