More images of the Chinese-based Journey have been revealed.
After being discontinued for the 2020 model year in the US, the Dodge Journey is back. Well, sort of. Last week, the new 2022 Dodge Journey entered production, but it isn't being built for the US market.
Although there were rumors that a next-generation model is in development based on the same platform as the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, the 2022 Dodge Journey is a rebadged version of the Trumpchi GS5 SUV sold in China. In partnership with Stellantis, GAC Motor will export the Journey to the Mexican market. Now, Stellantis has revealed the specifications of Mexico's reborn Dodge Journey.
Compared to the Trumpchi GS5, the 2022 Dodge Journey has a larger grille with a gloss black finish, giving it a more premium appearance. It also features LED headlights and 18-inch or 19-inch alloy wheels depending on the trim.
Under the hood, the 2022 Dodge Journey is powered by a 1.5-liter turbo rated at 169 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque, paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. McPherson independent front suspension and multi-link independent rear suspension ensures a smooth ride even on rough roads.
In Mexico, the 2022 Dodge Journey will be available in three trims: SXT, Sport, and GT. As standard, SXT and Sport trims include an analog instrument cluster and a seven-inch LCD digital information screen, while the GT trim gets a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. An eight-inch central touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay is offered as standard for all trims.
A 360-degree camera is included with Sport and GT trims. In Mexico, the 2022 Dodge Journey will start at 555,900 pesos ($27,075 USD) for the SXT trim, 615,900 pesos ($29,997 USD) for the Sport, and 645,900 pesos ($31,458 USD) for the GT. Sales of the 2022 Dodge Journey will start at the end of October.
