Dodge Mexico has opened up pre-ordering for its all-new 2022 Dodge Journey. The pre-ordering is open to the initial batch of 500 units and requires a deposit of $25,000 MXN (or about $1,200 USD). Those first 500 units will include special benefits such as…
- Free insurance for the first year or warranty extension Mopar Vehicle Protection at no cost for up to 5 years or 100,000 kilometers (or about 62,140 miles), whichever comes first.
- Financing plans, with special interest rates.
- The first deliveries will take place at the end of October.
For 2022, the Journey returns in a totally new package thanks to the Stellantis’ Chinese connections with Guangzhou Automobile Group Co., Ltd (GAC) and their Trumpchi GS5. Instead of being the family-oriented three-row that everyone who was budget-minded loved, it is now a five-passenger two-row crossover.
Available only to the Mexican market, the 2022 Dodge Journey is available in three different trim levels (SXT, Sport, and GT).
The cabin is extremely spacious, with the capacity to transport five passengers in comfort, as well as one of the largest cargo spaces in its category, with the possibility of configuring the 60/40 rear bench or reclining both seats leaving the floor completely flat.

The GS5 also donates an interior that utilizes better materials, with soft-touches surfaces, and attention to detail that again surpasses the 2020 model. For SXT and Sport models, there is an analog gauge cluster with a 7-inch LCD digital information screen in the center. On the top-tier GT model, that gauge cluster is replaced with a 12.3-inch LCD digital cluster allowing for a much more modern and technological look. Matter of fact, it is the first Dodge vehicle to feature such a display.
An 8-inch central-mounted touchscreen infotainment system is standard, however, it isn’t Uconnect 5-based. Using the system straight from the GS5, the Trumpchi’s system offers Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto as standard equipment across the lineup. The system also allows for the driver to use the reversing camera with dynamic grille lines, and the support of a 360-degree surround-view camera system on Sport and GT models in HD resolution.
Thanks to a new innovative 3D interactive website, you can now check out all three different trim levels of the 2022 Dodge Journey, both inside and out. The website also allows those of us who are familiar with the beloved and award-winning Uconnect infotainment systems, to try our hand at the Trumpchi GS5’s infotainment system and even allows us to play music on it. (You can try it by CLICKING HERE).
The website includes a look at some of the overall exterior and interior features, safety, and other technology on all three trim levels of the second-generation Journey.

Under the hood is a standard turbocharged 1.5-liter inline-four-cylinder engine delivering 169 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft. of torque. The turbo 1.5-liter features a BorgWarner low-inertia electronically controlled turbocharger and second-generation Bosch high-pressure injection system to ensure the stability of combustion, reduce emissions, and fuel consumption.
The turbo 1.5-liter is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission from Aisin which offers quick response shifting, low fuel consumption, and self-learning, and adaptive intelligent control. The Aisin unit allows the Journey to have Engine Start/Stop (ESS) and Natural Control.
The all-new Dodge Journey has a starting Manufacturing Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $555,900 MXN (or about $28,250 USD) for the SXT, $615,900 MXN (or about $31,300 USD) for the Sport, and $645,900 MXN (or about $32,825 USD) for the top-tier GT model.
