Performance

Two powertrains are offered for the SE, Crossroad, and GT models of the new Dodge Journey. The base engine utilizes a 173-hp 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder mated to a four-speed automatic transmission to earn an estimated 25 mpg on the highway and 19 mpg in the city. The upgraded engine is a 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 teamed with a six-speed automatic transmission which kicks out 283-hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. Both powertrains come standard with front-wheel drive with an all-wheel-drive option. Available features include a touring-tuning suspension for enhanced responsiveness, a high-performance suspension for a firmer ride, and a towing capacity of 2,500 pounds.

The Journey is comfortably designed to welcome up to seven passengers with easy access to the third-row seating with a tilt and slide feature. Added flexibility comes with a 60/40 split-folding second- and 50/50 split-folding third-row and up to 67.6 cubic feet of cargo space. Dual-zone temperature control, a heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel, Keyless Enter ‘N Go™, and an in-floor cargo storage area which can double as a cooler, come standard. Premium leather-trimmed seats, heated front seats, 6-way power adjustable driver’s seat, a three-zone automatic temperature control system, a roof rack, and a remote-start system are available.
