The Dodge Journey debuted in 2009 for the first time at the IAA in Frankfurt. And despite its good features such as the spacious cabin, the low price and the functional interior, the Dodge Journey does not show very good safety ratings and features. We must also admit that it is a bit dated. The 2018 model year was unchanged for 2017, as the automaker will present the brand new 2019 Dodge Journey, according to the latest news. The 2019 Dodge Journey is ready for a complete makeover.
The 2019 Dodge Journey has almost the same design features. It will have a familiar shape, which is almost ten years old. We are on the verge of seeing a reasonably familiar face that has received few updates over the years. However, they were all quite a long time ago. As for styling, the last update was five years ago and even those adjustments were modest. Simple, this crossover now looks like a relic from the past, but still has a pretty good quality when it comes to the chassis.
On the other hand, the interior may have a decent quality, but due to the unattractive layout it looks very unattractive. It’s important to know that the third row of seats has recently become the standard for all Journey models. The 2019 Dodge Journey continues the same with the equipment. The offer includes four ornaments. The base SE does not offer a long list of standard functions. There are things like two-zone climate control, 17-inch wheels, a 4.3-inch touch screen and a 6-speaker audio system. The SXT adds some things, such as: B. an 8.4-inch touch screen, parking sensors, rear view camera, etc. Weird Bluetooth is optional. With the Crossroad model you finally get a decent comfort. This upholstery adds things like 19-inch wheels, Driver Convenience Package, which includes a rear view camera, rear parking sensors and a universal garage door opener. To be honest, most modern crossovers already offer this in base bars. Finally, there is a Trim Trim GT trim. Finally, this model adds things like leather upholstery, heated seats and steering wheel, premium audio system, and so on.
The 2019 Dodge Journey will likely have the same engine options as the current model, as well as some new ones. So the current model is powered by a 2.4-liter Inline-4, which can produce 173 hp and a torque of 166 pounds (160 pounds). The second is a 3.6-liter V-6 with an output of 283 horses and 260 Nm of torque. Both engines work with a six-speed manual. On the other hand, since the new Dodge will use a new platform, it should now come standard with the rear-wheel drive system instead of the previous setting of the front-wheel drive. It also means that it has to borrow a number of engines that power the Alfa Romeo Stelvio. It can be a 2.9-liter V-6, which can develop up to 500 hp. This has not been confirmed yet. Some sources also claim they are getting the new 4-cylinder hurricane engine found in the latest Jeep Cherokee and possibly the powerful HEMI V-8 unit.
The 2019 Dodge Journey should come at the end of 2018 sometime at the usual time. We do not expect any price changes, so base models cost around $ 24,000. On the other hand, the best-equipped models are an excellent price, considering their quality and outdated design. These versions can be up to $ 35,000.
