Dodge Journey – America’s most versatile crossover
Dodge calls the Journey “America’s most versatile crossover.” That’s a bold claim, but the Journey can back it up with ease.
Buyers can choose from five distinctive Journey models: the dollar-wise AVP (American Value Package), the handsome SE, the full-featured SXT, the luxurious Limited and the sporty R/T. Few vehicles in the mid-size crossover range offer third-row seating, but the feature is available on all these Journey models. That makes the Journey the most affordable seven-passenger crossover in America—and perfect for growing families.
Powertrain choices include a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with 173 hp (standard on AVP, SE and SXT) or the award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with 283 hp and 260 lb.-ft. of torque (available on SXT, standard on Limited and R/T). The powerful V6 Journey features an advanced six-speed automatic transmission and delivers an impressive driving range with a satisfying 25 hwy mpg.
Surefooted front-wheel drive is standard on all Journeys, while an advanced all-wheel-drive system with electronically controlled coupling (EEC) is available with the V6. The muscular V6 Journey can tow trailers up to 2500 lbs., while four-cylinder Journeys are rated at 1000 lbs. The economical four-cylinder version is EPA rated at 26 miles per gallon on the highway, providing a driving range of over 500 miles on one tank of fuel.
Both the two-row, five-passenger and the three-row, seven-passenger seating systems fold flat to provide 67.6 cubic feet of cargo volume, with additional secure storage provided in the second row in-floor bins. There is even an optional passenger fold flat seat providing the ability to load cargo up to nine feet in length. With the fold-flat seat you also get a clever in-seat storage compartment to keep things safely out of sight. With all this flexibility and usability, the crossover can do most anything a family asks of it.
