The upcoming 2023 Dodge Journey is a mid-size SUV that offers an excellent level of comfort, pleasant ride, and plenty of advanced techs. This model offers three rows of seats, but it doesn’t have a spacious room behind as its sibling, the Dodge Durango. From a recent Dodge statement, it’s hard to maintain good sales with so many established models in the market. For that reason, the manufacturer will redesign the upcoming Journey and make it more competitive.
The latest reports suggest some changes inside, so, we should expect much better quality and materials. However, the previous generation, the new one will use the same powertrains. The Dodge Journey is powered by a smooth 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that generates 173 horsepower and 166 lb-ft of torque. Unfortunately, last year’s 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 is not longer available.
2023 Dodge Journey Redesign
The all-new 2023 Dodge Journey is a middle-size SUV that’s riding on the same platform that is used on the Alfa Romeo Stelvio model. Thanks to this platform, the forthcoming model will introduce plenty of changes. Dimensionally, it measures 192.4-inch length, and is very compact. However, for 2023 it should get better aerodynamics. Also, the front is revised (if we can rely on renderings), featuring a new set of LED headlights.
The front of this model definitively dominates. Besides a new set of headlights, the forthcoming SUV also has a crosshair grille and more chrome materials. On top of that, it rolls on a 18-inch alloys that can be replace with bigger wheels, choosing the RT trim.
On the inside, the new 2023 Dodge Journey will be more modern and stylish. Like before, this SUV offers three rows of seats and room to fit seven passengers. Moreover, the first two rows are roomy, but there isn’t much space behind them. As a result, only smaller passengers should sit back there.
On the tech side, the Dodge Journey comes with the new Uconnect infotainment comes using a standard 8.4-inch touchscreen. Also, the regular trim offers USB ports, AM/FM radio, six speakers, and more. However, more amenities are available on the Crossroad trim. This model will get a leather-wrapped steering wheel, power-adjustable driver’s seat, satellite radio, and Bluetooth. The GT version is available as well, and it should include all the above and better quality.
2023 Dodge Journey Powertrain Specs
Under the hood, the forthcoming 2023 Dodge Journey will come unchanged. This model is available with a powerful 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 173 horsepower and 166 lb-ft of torque.
Unfortunately, last year’s 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with 283 horsepower is gone, and is not longer available. The engine should use the same FCA’s eight-speed automatic transmission as a rear-wheel-drive setup as standard. Additionally, expect the all-wheel-drive to be part of upper trims.
Release Date, Price
As the model before, the upcoming 2023 Dodge Journey will be produced in Italy. However, there is also news that some of the parts might be made in Mexico. At this moment, there is no word about its price. We presume that it will cost slightly higher.
Overall, the current model, with an excellent package of standard features, costs around $30,000. However, more upper trims come with some additional amenities, which means more money.
