The Dodge Journey Continues On

Everything about the Dodge Journey has a "continue on" mentality: its design has continued on for nearly a decade, its practicality has your adventures continuing on, and its all-wheel drive makes sure you can continue on no matter what conditions are ahead of you.

This midsize crossover prioritizes practicality over everything else, which is only one of the reasons that the Dodge Journey continues to make its sales numbers every quarter. Another one of those reasons - some would argue a more important one - is that the Journey is the only three-row SUV that can maintain a price of under $24,000, making it the most competitive option in the category.

A True Family Vehicle

When you put practicality and affordability together, it will draw in many customers, especially those who are looking to grow their family, and what better vehicle is there for a growing family than one with room for up to seven passengers?

Families tend to bring along a lot of gear, and the Journey provides you a place to put everything. Fold-flat second-row seats allow you to make use of up to 67.6 cubic feet of cargo space, the cargo area has in-floor storage, and you can even use the second-row storage bin as a cooler (if you add ice).

When you are trying to find where the next game or practice is, you'll be able to make your way there with available Uconnect® 3 NAV which can include includes SiriusXM® Traffic and SiriusXM Travel Link to give you turn-by-turn directions and traffic updates to make sure you are there to see the first pitch or kickoff.

A Design that is Tried and True

The Journey has a design that's been kept pretty much the same since it debuted in 2009. The strong styling doesn't conform to the markets trend towards awkward aerodynamic curves, making it better suited for customers who want to show off the powerful tradition that Dodge has built. The Journey will appeal to mothers and fathers alike with its bold and strong front fascia, making for a stylish vehicle that your kids will be proud to travel in.

The paint for the Journey include many vividly descriptive options, including Vice White, Granite Pearl-Coat, Billet Clear-Coat, Redline, Olive Green, Contusion Blue Pearl-Coat, Pitch Black Clear-Coat, White Noise Tri-Coat, Blood Orange Clear-Coat, and Bruiser Grey Clear-Coat.

Two Engine Options: One More Efficient, One More Powerful

The attractive price is partially explained by the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 173 horsepower and 166 pound-feet of torque with a four-speed automatic transmission. While these might seem like low numbers, they make it possible to get 25 MPG on the highway, or, measured another way, 500 miles on a full tank.

The 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 is more powerful, making 283 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. This engine comes with a more modern six-speed transmission to ensure you get a smooth and comfortable ride. It also comes with the AutoStick feature, an advanced and innovative system that provides a unique driving experience.

Driving Experience

AutoStick allows you to switch the automatic transmission to manual as you see fit. This system is more forgiving than a traditional manual would be, automatically shifting down if you don't do it in time, making it ideal if you aren't very experienced with one. Long rides can get boring for some drivers, and being able to switch to manual can keep drivers more entertained and engaged for the duration of the drive. This system can be easily switched back and forth for when you get tired of one option.

Coming standard as front-wheel drive, you can opt for an all-wheel drive system to get the best control in harsh conditions. It is a front-wheel favoring system, ensuring that it will be as efficient as possible. If the vehicle starts to slip, the system can send the power where it needs to be to increase traction.

The Journey provides some impressive capabilities as well. When properly equipped, the Journey can tow up to 2,500 pounds, making it perfect for personal boats, furniture, or tools and materials for a DIY project.

Ensured Reliability from Warranty Coverage

A new Dodge Journey comes with a 3-year/36,000-mile basic limited warranty for coverage of your entire vehicle, including everything from the body to the electrical systems. They also come with a 5-Year/60,000-Mile Powertrain Limited Warranty to cover the engine components, transmission, drive systems, and also includes towing services. Both of these warranties are transferrable, so if you decide to sell your Journey within the first few years of owning it, the new owner will be getting the benefits that the warranties can provide, allowing you to get a better price for it.
