While each automaker strives to keep most of the information regarding their products, we nevertheless manage to collate enough info about the 2019 Dodge Journey to prep this review. While there were rumors doing the rounds earlier this year about Dodge Journey meeting its end, we are glad to see that’s one rumor that is not true. On the contrary, it seems that the automaker is gearing up to release either a completely revamped Dodge Journey either by this year or the next. Either way, we felt that it was time that we took a closer look at this car to see what made it tick.
The 2019 Dodge Journey is fast turning out to be a much-anticipated car and with most of the details and information is kept under wraps, we had to go scavenger hunting to get some decent information and get the same vetted. What we can confirm, from the leaked images is that the Dodge Journey would indeed be seeing a complete makeover this year, and that is bound to get lost reading this review into a tizzy. That’s not surprising seeing how this car has been in continuous production since it was launched in 2009.
Exterior, under the hood:
The 2019 Dodge Journey would be a completely revamped car, from the platform to the rear tail lights; the new model comes with a brand new platform that’s used on Alfa Romeo Stelvio. Apart from this, the car also comes with a better-sculpted look, a brand new front fascia, and rear fascia along with a brand new grille that should make it stand out for all the right reasons. The front hood has undergone a transformation along with LED headlights which come with cornering, and body colored front bumper, larger air intake valves, and chrome accents all over.
The new model will also come with a rear wheel drive instead of the front wheel drive like the previous models and apart from this, it will also feature as a two-row crossover and all indications are that the Dodge journey models will all feature the same from here on. In other words, expect Dodge Journeys to feature only two rows and not three rows like before. And as for the overall length, it is shorter than the current outgoing model by as much as 192.4 inches.
The 2019 Dodge Journey comes with a revamped interior with all the bells and whistles that you can expect; it is expected that the new model will come with heated and cooled seats, plush leather upholstery along with power steering wheel, a stylish dash with instrument cluster, blind spot monitoring and more add-ons and features than you can shake a stick at.
It will also feature a large touchscreen infotainment system that’s compatible with android auto and Apple car play among others. On the whole, the car comes loaded with all the features including advanced safety features that should make it clear that this is indeed a vehicle that’s both classy and comfortable.
Drivetrain, launch date, specs, price:
It is expected that the 2019 Dodge Journey will come with 2.9-liter V-6 which is able to develop up to 500 hp but this has not been confirmed just yet. What should make it apparent is that the new model, is a completely revamped one and since most of the details are being kept tightly under wraps, we can only guess at what’s soon to come. We expect that the new model will make its debut either by end of 2018 or by the early March of 2019 and as for the pricing, we expect to figure to range between $26300 and $42450.
