The 2018 Fiat Freemont will most likely come without bigger changes. You are probably familiar with the situation in the FCA and their plans for the future. The company prepares a completely new crossover which will replace several current models. This is one of those models that will be discontinued. It is a re-badged version of Dodge Journey, which is present since 2009. This one came two years later and it is offered in Europe, Australia, and some other markets. Since the company does not have plans with it for the future, it is hard to expect some novelties. However, since the completely new model is ready and will not be for another few years, it will continue its production. So, 2018 Fiat Freemont will come pretty much the same as the current model and we expect its arrival somewhere late in the year.
