TWO ENGINE VARIANTS OR MAYBE MORE?
The engine options are still the mystery for the redesign 2019 Dodge Journey crossover. We don’t have official statements of the fuel economy in this year model, but we expect better numbers.
The engine that fans, buyers, and others want to see in the new Journey is the mighty 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine. This engine comes with the 283 horsepower at 6,350 rpm and 260 lb-ft of torque at 4,400 rpm.
Both engines in the list above will run on regular unlead gasoline and paired with 6-speed automatic transmissions.
There is a slim possibility that it comes with the same 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 280 hp. This engine is currently offer in new Alfa Romeo Stelvio. We would definitely love to see new Journey Crossroad AWD with powerful 2.9-liter the 6 with 505 hp engine which gives the power to Stelvio Quadrifoglio version.

If 2019 Dodge Journey continues to have the price just under $23,000, we responsibly claim that this will be the best selling crossover in the world. The price for Stelvio starts just under $43,000, however, we believe that price for the new Dodge crossover will not be such high.
The main rivals in this segment will be Toyota Highlander, Honda Pilot, Nissan Pathfinder, Mazda CX-9 and Kia Sorento.
