Dodge dates back to the beginning of the motor industry in America, first as a supplier of parts to Ford before going on to build cars in its own right. The brand was first seen in Australia in 1915 when S.A. Cheney began importing them. It became part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, the seventh largest carmaker in the world, when Fiat acquired Chrysler from Daimler-Benz in 2014. The brand is sold here under the banner of Fiat Chrysler Australia, which sells two versions of the Journey crossover wagon, the SXT and the R/T. Both are five-seaters with a seven-seat option, and have V6 petrol engines.
