New 2018 Dodge Journey Concept Redesign and Release Date
At last, Dodge confirmed that the Journey may be replaced or significantly upgraded. But right now, we heard that the company will provide it with some minor improvements. The new 2018 Dodge Journey has not been announced yet by the company, but we are Jere together with all rumors and speculations around it. One thing for sure is that the company will not use the updated platform for this new generation. It will join the more competitive market with some rivals such as Honda CR-V, Kia Sportage and Ford Escape.
Although rumors mentioned that it will be the 10th anniversary of the vehicle itself, likely nothing to celebrate and some minor changes and styling will be added. It will get weight loss for a little bit, not too significant since the platform is updated. It also has updated suspension to give much better ride. The company will restyle the front bumpers, grille and LED headlights. A more aggressive design will be presented to attract young buyers and to expand its market. Therefore, we can say that the new 2018 Dodge Journey is much better on its styling and outer design than the predecessor.
A fresh and cool cabin design will be presented with contrast colors as well as detailed upholstery. We hope that they will add 8.4-inch LCD touchscreen infotainment system to play MP3, MP4, CD and DVD. It is a seven-seater vehicle, but the back seat is designed for two kids. Sadly, we cannot get into the depth when it is all about revealing the possible things inside the 2018 Dodge Journey. We do hope that it comes with more advanced technology features to make it impressive to enter the future market.
2018 Dodge Journey Engine
To power 2018 Dodge Journey, the company will use the newest 2.4 liter I4 four-cylinder engine that can provide 175 BHP, which is not too great. If you go with the higher trim model, it has the smooth V6 engine and 3.6 liter to generate 280 BHP. Likely it will be mated with six-speed auto transmission.
It seems that the announcement will be made in the beginning of 2017 so that the market sales can be done somewhere in the last quarter of 2017. We have no much expectation about the 2018 Dodge Journey especially for the change which means that the cost can be similar to the current model. The basic version can be about $30,000.
