The 2018 Dodge Journey will most likely come without bigger changes. This large crossover is in production for several years, and its future is now uncertain. You probably know that FCA Group prepares a completely new crossover, which will replace several current models, maybe including this one too. This model originally came in 2011. Although it could be replaced by a new crossover, that won’t happen so soon. The new model isn’t ready, and probably won’t be in another few years. So, this basically means that the 2018 Dodge Journey will continue with production and that it won’t feature bigger changes since it will be for maybe year or two. So, if we consider that there won’t be any change, 2018 Journey will come in usual time, which is somewhere late in the year.
2018 Dodge Journey redesign
In past few years, we heard a lot about the new crossover that company prepares. The new model should replace all crossovers from FCA that are in this class. Until then, 2018 Dodge Journey will continue with its production. This large crossover is present since 2011 and we didn’t see bigger changes until then. That state will remain since the company doesn’t have this model in plans for the future. It will continue in the pretty much same way as the current model, featuring same exterior and interior design. The only things that we could see new for the next year could be some smaller rearrangement in terms of equipment. The 2018 Dodge Journey will continue with the same trim levels, but each of them should receive some new standard feature. Those are SX, SXT, and R/T trims.
2018 Dodge Journey engines
Neither the engine lineup won’t feature any change. The 2018 Dodge Journey will continue with the same two engines in the offer. The base model will feature a familiar 2.4-liter four-cylinder unit. It is good for about 175 horsepower and comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission. An optional engine is a 3.6-liter unit, which delivers around 280 horses and also comes in pair with 6-speed automatic transmission. In both cases, 2WD configuration is standard, while all-wheel drive is an optional feature.
2018 Dodge Journey release date and price
The 2018 Dodge Journey will come somewhere late in the year, with the base price around 21.000 dollars.
