Dodge has released a new $38,500 ‘Blacktop’ edition of its workhose Journey in Australia, adding a number of stealth styling tweaks to the large SUV.

Based on the range-topping $36,500 Journey R/T, the Blacktop Edition carries a $2000 premium and picks up a gloss black finish to the regular model’s 19-inch alloys, grille, headlight housings, fascia trim and side mirror caps.

Features already standard with the Journey R/T include leather seats (heated up front and with powered lumbar support for the driver), automatic headlights, keyless entry and keyless start.

Also standard with the R/T is an 8.4 inch touch display with Bluetooth/USB connectivity, satellite navigation and reversing camera, along with reversing sensors, six speakers with subwoofer and 368W amplifier, and a second 9.0 inch display with wireless headphones in the rear.

The Journey R/T is powered by Fiat Chrysler’s 3.6 litre Pentastar V6 petrol engine, producing 206kW and 342Nm of torque.

Matched with a six-speed auto, the petrol V6 lists fuel consumption at 10.4 l/100km.

In Blacktop form, the Journey will be offered with six exterior colour options: Redline Red, White, Pearl White Tri-Coat, Pitch Black, Granite Crystal, and Billet Silver.

Year-to-date sales figures show the Journey on 311 sales for the year, compared to 434 for the same period in 2014.

The Journey’s Fiat-badged Freemont sibling remains a more popular offering with 381 sales by the end of March.

Both models play in the Large SUV market, which is dominated by the Jeep Grand Cherokee (3339 YTD), Toyota’s Kluger and Prado (2917 and 3411), and the Holden Captiva 7 (2627).
