The Micra in Canada has a 4-speed auto
I wish they sold them down here
The last real Yaris, the last one that was actually a real Toyota, had a 4-speed auto. It was replaced by a Mazda 2 which has a 6-speed auto
It appears from the Dodge website that 2019 was the last year that one could even get the Journey with the 3.6 liter engine.
Build and price a 2020, and the only engine option available is the 4 banger and 4 speed.
the dodge journey is an exercise is what is wrong with american car makers:
-decent looking exterior
-nicely laid out interior
-haphazard quality control
-apathetic consumer orientation
-greedy, lazy attitude to updating.
add some serious corporate attention to q.c., periodic updates and a 6 speed auto trans to its 4 cylinder engine, and the journey would have a decent little hauler.
for years toyota cheaped out on 4sp auto trans for its 4cyl models, including my yaris. the well executed tradeoff was bulletproof q.c. you would really have to go intentionally out of your way to muck up the powertrain of my yaris or prior 2004 corolla.
geez...I had a Journey as a company car around 2010? 4 cyl and 4 spd auto....SLOWEST car I've driven since the original 1982(?) Chevy Cavalier with auto and carb'd engine.
Journey was a hazard to drive...couldn't get up to speed on the Interstate on ramp fast enough to get out of harms way. I remember thinking it rode like a 70's land yacht...very soft...but very slow.
The 41TE/A604/42LE/42RLE/A606 doesn't share anything with the Torqueflite, It's he 3 speed (A404 A413 A470 A670 31TH) transaxles that are similar to the Torqueflite. They do look similar it appearance & physical size though......
