2010 Chryslers, Dodges, and Jeeps: Reported Changes

We are not responsible for errors or omissions; this is not an official list but is based on the information we could gather. Thanks to oh20 and one other anonymous source.


The 2010 Dodge Journey, the front-wheel drive R/T model and the all-wheel-drive SXT were dropped, and the 3.5 V6 was standard on SXT. The slate gray seats switched to dark slate (black) and white gold pearl replaced light standstone metallic, green pearl, and blue pearl. There were some package changes; the rear seat DVD screen grew to nine inches from eight. An automatic oil change monitoring system was made standard. Active head restraints were added.

2010 Dodge Ram 1500: a new SXT appearance group for ST is available, along with optional factory trailer tow mirrors, 22 inch chrome aluminum wheels (on Regular Cab
Sport R/T 4x2), active head restraints, and trailer brake control. A 700 amp battery is standard, and new colors, including white, have been added. Chassis Cab information is not yet available.

2010 Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500 will feature new styling, interiors, crew cab, advanced multistage airbags, standard side curtain airbags, and an integrated trailer brake controller.

Dodge Challenger gets a new Detonator Yellow color late in the year, and the five-speed automatic replaces the four-speed. Dodge Charger gets a Super Track Pack on R/T, and a new white gold peral color.

2010 Dodge Caravan / Chrysler Town & Country gain active head restraints and new exterior colors.

The 2010 Dodge Avenger continues with new active head restraints and exterior colors.

Dodge Caliber gets a refreshed interior, with active head restraints and optional heated mirrors, automatic air conditioning, leather emergency brake handle, and six-way power seats, with a new optic green metallic paint. Export models gain a 2.2 liter Mercedes
turbodiesel. The 1.8 liter engine might be dropped with the new entry level being the 2.0, making the five-speed transmission more attractive.

Dodge Dakota continues.


2010 Jeep Wranger: tow hooks, fog lamps, full-length center console, front floor mats, and premium cloth trim are now standard on all models. Front seatback map pockets are included with the standard cloth seats. Sahara and Rubicon can now be ordered with leather-faced trim. Metallic green, orange pearl, detonator yellow were replaced by surf blue pearl, dark charcoal pearl, and natural green pearl. The R/T will be introduced.

2010 Jeep Liberty gets active head restraints.

2010 Jeep Compass: power six-way driver’s seat and TIP start will become available; Canadians can get a North Plus group which enhances the Compass North Edition 4x4 with heated front seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, and speed control. Active head restraints, heated mirrors, automatic air conditioning, leather emergency brake handle, and six-way power seats are new (but not standard with all levels). A new natural green pearl color will be added.

Jeep Commander continues without the Sport T package or 4.7 liter engine; a power liftgate is now standard. Three exterior colors were dropped. Grand Cherokee also loses the 4.7 V8 and three colors.

The 300 will continue with 300, Touring, Sig Series, Exec series, Limited, 300C Hemi, and 300C SRT8. The only new features appear to be Keyless-Go and Proximity Entry (300C/SRT8) and two new colors, Dark Cordovan Pearl and White Gold Pearl.

2010 Dodge Caravan / Chrysler Town & Country gain active head restraints and new exterior colors.

Chrysler Sebring gains active head restraints and a new instrument cluster with LED backlighting.

2010 PT Cruiser continues with both engines.
