2016 Dodge Journey
Chrysler prepares many novelties for next year and some of them will be in Dodge division. Next year we are going to see new Dodge Journey. The original model was launched in 2008 and it was updated in 2011. Now it is time for second-generation model, which will come in late 2015 as 2016 Dodge Journey. New model will come with many changes. It will get whole new look and many technical improvements are expected. The Dodge Journey 2016 will come with some modifications under the hood too, especially when it is about transmission.
2016 Dodge Journey exterior and interior design
We still don’t have complete picture of 2016 Journey, so we can’t tell exactly how new model will look. However, it we consider that this car is designed primary for European market, it is clear that it will be designed to meet the demands of drivers from that part of the world. It is expected that 2016 Dodge Journey will get new platform and it will have many similarities with Chrysler 200 model. Interior will be redesigned too. Second-generation model will come with revisited cabin, which will have more sophisticated look and better-quality materials. Beside new control board, 2016 Journey will get additional space both in cabin and trunk.
2016 Dodge Journey engine
Current engine line-up will remain for now and it is expected to be changed not before some mid-cycle refreshment. For 2016 Dodge Journey there will be two engines offered. The base model will use 2.4 liter I4 engine, which outputs 173 hp and has average fuel consumption around 19/26 mpg. The more powerful version will be powered with 3.6 liter V6 Pentastar engine with 283 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. Average fuel consumption for this variant is 17 mpg city and 25 mpg in highway drive. It seems that first few year models will use current 4-speed transmission, while new gearbox is expected to come in next few years. Second-generation model will be probably available with manual transmission too.
