The next, RWD, Dodge Journey

by David Zatz on

As the next-generation Dodge Journey gets closer, it may be time to take a closer look at it.

Allpar sources claim it will be made in Italy, on the same line as the Alfa Romeo Stelvio; it’s expected to share many under-the-skin parts with its pricier brother, but might have more rear seat and cargo space.

The transmission will be the usual eight speed; depending on when production starts, it may have the new straight six engine. Almost certainly, though, it will start with the Hurricane four-cylinder, which is due for first production later this year.   An Alfa Romeo engine on the same GME architecture drives 0-60 times of 5.4 seconds, but the Dodge is unlikely to beat six seconds, and might weigh in at seven, due to greater weight and, most likely, lower power. Money buys speed.

The current Dodge Journey, whose last major re-engineering was in 2011, will be replaced by a Chrysler-branded crossovers (at last look), possibly based on the Jeep to be sold in China as the K8 or Yuntu. The engines for that crossover are yet unknown, but we would expect the Hurricane four and a 3.6 Pentastar, with a hybrid option.
