Fiat has prepared a Cross version of the Freemont which will be shown together with the Panda Cross at next month's 2014 Geneva Motor Show.
The Italian version of the Dodge Journey has gained a more rugged exterior package with larger wheel arches, platinum chrome inserts on both bumpers, along with black frames for the headlights & taillights and unique five-spoke 19-inch Hyper black alloy wheels. On the inside it benefits from black leather upholstery with sports mesh inserts and grey stitching and liquid graphite highlights on the center console, dashboard, instruments, steering wheel and door panel.
The Fiat Freemont Cross can be had with a 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter MultiJet II engine delivering 140 HP (103 kW) to the front-wheels through a six-speed manual transmission. There's also a more powerful 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter MultiJet II outputting 170 HP (125 kW) which can work with a front-wheel drive layout and a manual gearbox or with an active AWD setup coupled to a six-speed automatic gearbox.
Standard goodies offered include an 8.4-inch touchscreen satellite navigation system, rear parking camera and a six-speaker Alpine sound system that includes an amplifier and a subwoofer. It also comes with a ten-way driver's electric adjustable seat and a foldable front passenger seat, while the second row of seats can be reclined and has built-in child boosters.
The Fiat Freemont Cross is scheduled to go on sale this fall at a yet undisclosed price tag but most definitely it will be a tad more expensive than the regular Freemont.
