The Fiat Freemont is based of the Dodge Journey, and the first Fiat vehicle to come out of the partnership with the Chrysler Group. When comparing the Freemont to Journey, you will notice modified bumpers, a revised grille, and LED tail lights.
The entry-level model comes with seven seats, tri-zone automatic climate control, keyless entry, cruise control, a tire pressure monitoring system, fog lights, a touchscreen infotainment system. The range topping variant will include 17-inch alloys, touchscreen radio with 8.4″ screen, SD card and DVD reader, Bluetooth system, rear parking sensors, fold-down door mirrors, automatic headlight activation, darkened rear windows and roof bars. Maximum cargo capacity of the Freemont is 1461 liters.
The Freemont will be offered at first only with front wheel drive with 140bhp and 170bhp 2.0-litre MultiJet diesels mated to manual transmission. Later an all-wheel-drive variant will be added with an automatic transmission and a 170bhp 2.0-litre MultiJet diesel or a 276bhp 3.6-litre V6 petrol engine.
Official debut is at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
