The Dodge Journey 2022: a midsize crossover with exclusive bodywork.

The next version of the midsize car, the Dodge Journey 2022, has retained the average design, technology and performance features of its 2012 predecessor, as well as the status of a model designed on the principles of reasonable sufficiency.

The new model of the American car industry combines in its design the advantages of a comfortable family car with an impressive off-road potential.

Perhaps that is why in the appearance of the novelty the recognizable elements of crossover, minivan and even station wagon layout can be seen.

Appearance

Despite its American origins, the novelty does not attract attention with bright decorative accents, aggressive design and premium traction-speed characteristics of the power unit.

Visually, the new Dodge body looks functional, practical, though somewhat ordinary.

The restyling has had a positive effect on the crossover design of the front end, the upgraded optics, and the further improvement of the seven-seat interior.

The Dodge looks most stylish and imposing in photos and promotional videos from the frontal perspective. In the field of vision:

The dynamic ribbed profiles and smooth contours of the hood’s front edge;

angular blocks of multifunctional headlights with powerful LED fittings;

decorative chrome-plated perimeter, cross-shaped cover of the brand logo, mesh radiator grille.

In the new configuration of the massive bumper there is a metal and plastic framing of the lower air intake, compact air diffusers and classically designed, round fog lamps.

In profile, less bright and presentable, the Dodge Journey 2022 shows:

an arched profile of the roof descending toward the stern, complemented by compact longitudinal or transverse rails;

black matting of the three-piece window trim;

rectangular configuration of mirrors and semi-recessed chrome door handles.

The muscular lower segments of the sides carry a set of stepped and wavy reliefs, as well as the typical for SUVs protective plastic «skirt».

The spacious volumes of the wheel arches can accommodate rollers with rims from 17 to 19 inches in diameter.

The monumental stern of the 2022 Journey showcases distinctive crossover styling elements. In the spotlight:

A compact area of high-lifted aft glazing with a spoiler visor;

the luggage compartment door decorated with the brand logo and the inner segments of the combined clearance and stoplights;

a massive bumper and bodykit with paired cutouts for the exhaust pipes.

In the new interpretation, the external appearance of the Dodge Journey 2022 does not cause explosive positive emotions, nevertheless the novelty looks quite stylish and to some extent presentable.

Interior

In the design of the cabin interior should be noted decent quality and perfect installation of finishing materials, close to the premium level characteristics of on-board equipment, professional ergonomics of seating.
