    Rumorpile: Next-Generation Dodge Journey Production To Move From Mexico To Detroit

    By William Maley

    May 29, 2013

    According to a new report from analysis firm AutomotiveCompass, Chrysler is planning to move production of the next-generation Dodge Journey from Toluca, Mexico to Sterling Heights, MI. The switch over is expected to happen in 2016, the same time the next-generation Journey is expected.

    Why the change in plants? The next Journey is expected to use a variation of Fiat's CUSW platform. Moving it to plant where another vehicle using the CUSW platform, the Chrysler 200 in this case, makes a lot of sense.

    When asked by the Detroit Free Press, a Dodge spokesman declined to comment.

    I thought the Journey was done....And it got a re-hash like the Avenger to play out it's last few years.

    I could be wrong, put I thought Fiat had another small Suv in mind....
