While I was out last night I saw the white Journey “SRT” with manufacturer plates. I took a few pictures of it and here is what I noticed about it… rear exiting dual exhaust with dual tips (4 tips total). Pipes behind mufflers were larger ( > 2.5″). SRT logos on the wheels; had AWD wheels. Front bumper seemed slightly different.

Is this just a test mule, or is there any chance of a high-horsepower Journey in Chrysler’s future?

(Reader bumonbox wrote: “Personal hack job or legit testing? I am not sure if the Journey would be a likely recipient of the SRT treatment. The look will change in the upcoming year anyways, but it wouldn’t be unlikely to test with the existing skin.” JRS200x noted that the license plate number had changed from an earlier sighting, but remained a manufacturer’s plate. We do not believe it is really an SRT mule but suspect it could be testing components and tuning for a more serious R/T model.)
