Dodge is making a new high-performance variant. The 2020 Dodge Journey SRT will hit the dealerships in the six-month time. According to numerous rumors, mid-size SUV will get amazing performances. Moreover, we can expect a more aggressive styling than on the base model.
That means the Journey SRT will depart from the regular version in so many ways. Journey SRT will also offer plenty of sportiness. Interior will get numerous changes and it will be premium. Under the bonnet, a Hemi V8 engine will deliver a lot of power. As for the price, the 2020 Journey SRT will cost almost the same as its main rivals.
2020 Dodge Journey SRT Will Look Impressive
The all-new 2020 Dodge Journey SRT will look very attractive. The new model will arrive with the same dimensions as the base Journey model. Of course, the SRT variant will offer lower ride height. Aggressive styling and sporty features are visible at first glance. The mid-size SUV largely departs from the base model in terms of design.
Bumpers are larger and air dams are wider. New headlights are looking cleaner and the whole front fascia is impressive. Aerodynamics are drastically improved and this SUV will wear more aluminum materials. Losing weight in this way will make space for a larger and heavier engine. A 20-inch gloss black aluminum wheels are standard on the Journey SRT. Plenty of blacked-out features are in the offer as well. That includes the grille, mirrors, bumpers and headlamp bezels.
If the rumors are true, this model will retain its seven-seat interior layout. The 2020 Dodge Journey SRT comes with a sporty cabin and plenty of upscale features. Comfort is great and the level of luxury is really high with this model. Journey SRT offers leather upholstery as standard. Seats are very supportive and are sporting numerous contrast stitching. Of course, SRT is hard to imagine without badges and sporty steering wheel.
The shape of the buttons and air vents is slightly different than on the regular Journey. Of course, a list of the standard features is really long. That also includes safety aids and driver-assistance systems. Dashboard and instrument cluster are almost the same as on the base model. Interior room is generous and third-row will be tight for the adults.
2020 Dodge Journey SRT Drivetrain Specs
As you probably know, the base Journey model is offering two powertrain options. A 2.4-liter and a 3.6-liter V6. However, none of these engines are available in the 2020 Dodge Journey SRT. A 6.4-liter Hemi V8 powers the upcoming model. Moreover, it is the only engine option. The very same engine can be found in Durango SRT SUV.
In Durango SRT, powerful V8 is producing 475 HP and 470 lb-ft of torque. An 8-speed automatic TorqueFlight gearbox comes as standard. The four-wheel-drive system is standard as well. New Journey SRT reaches from 0 to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds. However, this engine is not so fuel-friendly. A 15 mpg combined doesn’t sound that promising.
Price and Release Date
The price of the regular Journey model starts at $24,000. On the other hand, the new 2020 Dodge Journey SRT will cost $42,000. This price is in line with the rest of the competition. This high-performance SUV will hit the dealerships in the six-month time. Probably at the beginning of 2020.
