Views: the next Dodge Journey

by David Zatz on

The next Dodge Journey, according to numerous sources, will be made in Italy, on the same line (and the same platform and architecture) as the Alfa Romeo Stelvio. Many expect it to be longer than the Stelvio, but not nearly as long as the current Journey.

These views were created by Allpar regulars, skilled rendering artists who mixed the grapevine with educated guesses, based on current trends.

The eight-speed automatic is de rigeur, but what will be in front of it? It’s possible it’ll carry an optional Hemi V8, but may be restricted to a forced-induction V6 to reduce development costs. The Hurricane Four will likely be standard; a GME four-cylinder powers Alfa Romeo’s version to 0-60 times of 5.4 seconds, better than a 5.7 Hemi Charger.  Insiders say the G-series is being developed with V8s in mind, but that might involve changes that will come later — at this point, we really don’t know how different the next Journey will be from the Stelvio.

While the Dodge version may end up with more power than the base  Alfa Romeo, it could end up being slower, 0-60, because the Alfa can take advantage of expensive lightweight materials and a more compact size.

As for the current Dodge Journey, based on a modified Mitsubishi platform and refreshed over the years, it’s likely to be replaced by a pair of Chrysler crossovers — one based directly on the Pacifica, and one similar to the Chinese Jeep K8.
