Chrysler has been making mid size luxury crossover vehicles for quite some time now. This Dodge Journey franchise was first introduced way back in 2008 as a 2009 variant model. Its biggest update in terms of performance and design came back in 2011. However since then, there has not been any major upgrade, until the 2017 Dodge Journey. According to several rumors, this new model is going to receive some major visualization changes, along with better power train options, as well as improved suspension systems. So, Dodge is hoping for positive reviews and publicity from the auto enterprises all over the world for their new 2017 Journey model. Let’s have a look at some of the important specs available for this car.
2017 Dodge Journey: Engine Specs
Since this 2017 Dodge Journey is still very early in its production, so there is not much to know about its specifications, and especially its engine details. It is quite hard to speculate the availability of any particular power train for this model. Still, Dodge has somewhat confirmed that this 2017 Dodge Journey will retain its current lineup of engines, along with a better variant. These power trains consist of:
- A 2.4 liter inline 4 cylinder engine with a max power output of 173 HP.
- Another higher variant engine of 3.6 liter capacity and V6 cylinder Pentastar configuration. Its max output stands at 283 HP.
It is very much likely that Dodge will replace the 4 cylinder variant in its 2017 lineup with a much more powerful engine configuration. What will it be? That answer will be available after it finishes production.
2017 Dodge Journey: Redesign Exterior and Interior
There has not been much discussion in the automobile community about this 2017 Dodge Journey as far as changes or newer updates are concerned. However, some experts believe that Dodge will reinvent their Journey franchise and bring out a new and redesigned car model for this 2017 Dodge Journey. No recent news has been discovered, and the company’s spokesman has declined to make any statement regarding this new car. As far as its platform is concerned, this model will use the same platform as its predecessor – the Chrysler 200. However, for better optimization and aerodynamic stability, certain modifications will be made on the existing platform design.
Apart from that, this company is also looking forward to improve its performance in the crossover range of vehicles. In all probability, it will receive new LED head and tail lights, along with decreased ride height as well as modified front and rear bumpers. As far as interior of this car is concerned, a better styling attribute is to be expected. Its dash board design might receive some little tweaks.
2017 Dodge Journey: Release Date and Price
This 2017 Dodge Journey is still in its infancy as far as development or production is concerned. So nothing can be said about its pricing or its availability for certain. However, since this is a 2017 model, so you can at least expect it sometime in late 2016 or early 2017 – because Dodge generally releases new cars in that timeframe.
