2019 Dodge Journey is a modern middle class crossover SUV from Fiat Chrysler Company. The first model was presented in 2007 at Frankfurt Motor Show. Then in 2009, he had gotten a soft facelift. We must mention that this model shares a platform that is modified with the popular Dodge Avenger sedan. For 2019, it will be redesigned and improved in all sectors.
2019 Dodge Journey : Comfortable Seven Seater Suv
The upcoming 2019 Dodge Journey is the new standard third row seat of a comfortable seven passenger SUV that offers plenty of technology and space. However, the five seat version has run out in this year’s model. Now offers many standard features and is made with ideal sizes for many people. Not too big or too small.
If we compare this model with Dodge Durango, the Journey is, however, eight inches shorter and also 1000 pounds lighter. The front fascia model is now redesigned with a pair of new LED headlights. This will come with five trims. However, the top-line GT model in this line trim is now replaced by R / T and will offer more than GT. Equipped with a new, stiffer suspension, beautifully stitched red leather seats, premium sound system and 19 inches aluminum wheels.
In the standard or basic trim, the Blacktop appearance package will be offered. This package includes a black grille, front-fascia black trim, black painted aluminum wheels, black roof rail, and black mirror. However, the base trim will also offer updated dual-zone climate control, 4.3-inch touch screen, keyless system, start push-button and more. For entertainment, it owes 6-speaker AM, FM, CD systems with auxiliary and USB inputs, but Bluetooth is optional.
In terms of safety, the new Dodge Journey 2019 will provide electronic traction and stability control, a protective frame, active front seat head restraints, anti lock brakes, front side seating airbags and also side-curtain airbags for all lines.
What Can We Expect from a Vehicle Trip Redesign ?
It was confirmed that the second generation Dodge Journey will be built on the Giorgio rear drive platform. This is the same platform that supports Alfa Romeo Stelvio crossover and Giulia sedan. This means that Dodge Journey is now designed to be a two row crossover. The redesigned Dodge Journey 2019 production will be in Italy.
2019 Dodge Journey : Two Engine Variants Or Maybe More
The choice of engine is still a mystery for the redesigned 2019 Dodge Journey crossover. A standard or chassis Powertrain might be a 2.4 liter 4 cylinder that makes 173 horsepower. We don’t have an official statement about fuel savings in this year’s model, but we expect better numbers. Last year’s model has an EPA city / highway fuel economy of 19/25 mpg.
The engine that fans, buyers and others want to see on the new 2019 Dodge Journey is the powerful 3.6 liter Pentastar V6 engine. This engine comes with 283 horsepower at 6,350 rpm and 260 lb-ft of torque at 4,400 rpm. However, it comes with a standard front wheel drive, or if you need a better system for bad weather and slippery roads you can choose optional all wheel drive. We expect the same fuel economy figures as its predecessors 17/25 mpg for FWD and 16/24 mpg for AWD. The two engines listed above will run on ordinary unleaded gasoline and be paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
There is a slim possibility that comes with a 2.0 liter four cylinder engine that is equal to 280 hp. This machine is currently offered in the new Alfa Romeo Stelvio. However, we will definitely be happy to see the new 2019 Journey Crossroad AWD with a 2.9 liter engine that is powered by 6 with a 505 hp engine that provides power to Stelvio Quadrifoglio’s version.
2019 Dodge Journey : Retail Price and Recommended Release Date
If 2019 Dodge Journey continues to have prices below the $ 23,000 range. At present this is one of the middle class SUVs with the lowest prices on the market. Of course, it’s hard to believe that Dodge will maintain this price after a very large redesign. The price for Stelvio starts just under $ 43,000, however, we believe that the price for the new Dodge crossover will not be that high. 2019 Dodge Journey trip and release date do not yet exist and will not arrive on the market until the end of 2018. The main rivals in this segment are Toyota Highlander, Honda Pilot, Nissan Pathfinder, Mazda CX-9, and Kia Sorento.
