The complete redesign of Dodge Journey will be most likely to happen in the following year. Reportedly, the upcoming 2022 Dodge Journey will bring many improvements and refreshments compared to its predecessor.
This mid-size SUV plays an important role in Dodge`s lineup, featuring a very compact and attractive styling. According to the latest statistics, the Journey has been sold in over 900,000 copies over its lifetime. For 2022, it will return more muscular using the Giorgio architecture that already underpins the Alfa Romeo Stelvio. Some of the renderings are available, and they reveal a much sportier shape than before.
2022 Dodge Journey Redesign
The all-new 2022 Dodge Journey will be completely redesigned, and it will depart from the original design. Besides a more attractive design, the new model seems much smaller than the outgoing one. From what we know, the upcoming Journey will ride on a famous Alpha Romeo Giorgio architecture. The same architecture is present on the latest Alpha Romeo Stelvio that scratches 184.5 inches.
The previous Journey model was 192.4 inches long, offering three rows of seats. Overall, the new renderings reveal a lot of brand-new stuff. First of all, the front fascia is unique, featuring a new grille and LED headlights. On top of that, on the back, the Journey comes with much more attractive taillights similar to that we saw on the Charger model.
Inside, the forthcoming 2022 Dodge Journey will also gain some significant changes. Generally, the most drastic one will be in the seating layout. The previous model is known as a three-row SUV, but this time it seems like the all-new Journey will arrive with only two rows of seats. Unfortunately, that means we should expect it to fit only five passengers.
However, in terms of technology, FCA will introduce more high-tech features and more premium materials. For example, new upholstery, larger displays, and additional driver-assistance aids will become available. Also, as standard equipment, expect dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth and Sirius satellite radio, and a 6-speaker audio system.
2022 Dodge Journey Powertrain Specs
Once again, the 2022 Dodge Journey will ride on the same 2.4-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine. This standard powertrain great performances, and it can produce 173 hp and 166 lb-ft of torque. Unfortunately, the optional 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, with 283 horsepower, is no longer available.
This version was put to pasture two years ago. However, there is a rumor that the manufacture might introduce the SRT version that will be capable of producing at least 500 horses. Generally, many believe that it will use the same engine as the Dodge Durango SRT. If that happens, the Journey will be available with a 6.4-liter V-8, which produces 475 horses under the Durango version.
Price, Release Date
The 2022 Dodge Journey will most likely to arrive sometime next year. Renderings are available, and they reveal an entirely new platform and styling. Also, many believe that Journey will be most likely offered with some of the new engine options.
However, considering tons of upgrades, a slight price increase is possible. That means a new model should cost around $30,000. However, if the SRT variant happens, it might cost over $50,000.
