2018 Dodge Journey

The 2018 Dodge Journey could easily be the last year model of this mid-size crossover. So far, there are two different predictions about future of this crossover. As you may know, company announced that most of the cars under Dodge brand won’t be offered outside North America anymore. This model company produces in many countries, for various markets all around the world. So, we can easily conclude that this model will be either discontinued, or renamed for those abroad markets. In both cases, 2018 Journey will remain pretty much the same as current model. Potential redesign won’t come so soon, which means that we won’t see some bigger changes on model that should come late next year.

2018 Dodge Journey front viewThe 2018 Dodge Journey should come without bigger changes. Company prepares some new things in crossover segment, but those things are still very far. Because of that, this mid-size crossover should continue in the pretty much same shape. However, there is a possibility to see some renames. Just like it was case with Fiat Freemont, we could see this model under some other brands of Fiat Chrysler Corporation. When it is about design characteristics, 2018 Dodge Journey will come with same exterior design. We will see the same styling, which is pretty much unchanged from 2011. Same thing is expected inside, where we expect to see same interior styling, but with some new features and technologies in offer. Current trims will carry over. Those are SX, SXT and R/T, and each of them should come re-arranged, with some new features in offer.

Same thing is with powertrain. We probably won’t see changes until company do redesign, or introduce some different, completely new model. There are many units in offer, but just two of them are available in North America. Those are familiar units. Base one is 2.4 liter inline-four engine, which is good for about, 173 horses. Other engine, which is standard already on SXT model, is 3.6 liter V6 Pentastar, which makes 283 horsepower. Both engines come with 6-speed automatic transmission.
