Dodge Journey, Mexico to go their separate ways
Chrysler has been assembling its Journey in Mexico to facilitate exporting to Europe and South America (where it's rebadged as the Fiat Freemont). However, shifting production to the States would allow for higher sticker prices in those markets, according to current trade agreements. In addition, the move would consolidate the automaker's CUSW-platform vehicles (e.g. Dodge Journey, Chrysler 200, Dodge Dart, Jeep Cherokee) to three assembly plants, all geographically close, easing supply chains and lowering costs. Chrysler has not commented on the report.
