Next Dodge Journey To Get HEMI V8? Maybe…

The lovable Dodge Journey may get a HEMI V8 and Scat Pack version in 2022

  • Report says Dodge is working on a new performance replacement for the Dodge Journey
  • No word if it will keep the same name
  • New model to be built on Giorgio platform that underpins Alfa Romeo Stelvio

The Dodge Journey is one of those models that nobody admits liking, and yet you see a ton of them on the road. The affordable price point and versatility of the Journey have made it very popular among consumers in North America and it’s hard to imagine FCA dramatically changing the Journey down the road.

Or maybe they will. Mopar Insiders says they spoke with sources at FCA who revealed that a Journey replacement was in the works and that it would be significantly more performance-oriented than the current Journey. It would be built on the Giorgio platform which underpins the the Alfa Romeo Stelvio and will therefore be available with both rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive.

You can also expect a large HEMI V8 under the hood and a Scat Pack option package. MI also reports that the new model will be roughly the size of the Stelvio, but its design will be influenced by the Dodge Charger.

The future Dodge product lineup is bound the change quite a bit in the next few years with the future of the Grand Caravan still in doubt. That would leave Dodge with the Challenger, Charger, and Durango, all of which offer an SRT version and are focused on standing out when it comes to performance.
