The Dodge Journey is Chrysler's small crossover SUV, with seating for seven. It is available in four different trim levels: SE, SXT, Crossroad and GT.
Two engines are available--a 2.4L 4-cylinder and a 3.6L V6. The 4-cylinder makes 173 horsepower and 166 lb-feet of torque, while maintaining an EPA-estimated fuel mileage of 19 mpg city and 25 mpg highway. The 3.6L V6 makes 283 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, with fuel mileage estimated at 17 mpg city and 25 mpg highway. The SE, SXT and Crossroad all come standard with the 4-cylinder engine, while the GT comes with the V6.
The Journey comes with front-wheel drive in all trims, while all-wheel drive is an option. The 4-cylinder models feature a 4-speed automatic transmission, while all others feature a 6-speed automatic. Towing capacities are rated at 1,000 pounds for the 4-cylinder and 2,500 pounds for the V6.
The entry-level SE starts at a very reasonable $22,500 but still maintains a solid feature list that includes 17-inch wheels, deep-tint sunscreen glass, roof rails, keyless entry with push-button start, an audio system with a USB port, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel and power windows and locks.
The SXT has alloy wheels and fog lamps, plus a more aggressive appearance, while the Crossroad adds 19-inch alloys, leather seating, power driver's seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, an 8.4-inch touchscreen with Uconnect and chrome side sills and roof rails.
In addition to the standard V6, the Journey GT adds sport suspension and automatic headlights, along with premium leather seating, heated seats and steering wheel, a fold-flat front passenger seat with in-seat storage, LED ambient lighting, remote start, a 368-watt 6-speaker stereo with subwoofer and unique red stitching on the upholstery.
All Journeys come with a variety of standard safety features that include driver and passenger airbags, front-side airbags and curtain side airbags that extend to all seating rows. Included of course, are anti-lock brakes, stability and traction control.
A host of options are available on the Journey, depending on the trim level selected. A 3-zone climate control and Blacktop package are available on all Journeys. The Popular Equipment Package includes leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter, aluminum wheels and a trip computer. The Premium Group includes daytime running lamps, power seats and SiriusXM satellite radio. On the SXT, a ParkView rear backup camera is available. Navigation and a rear-seat video system are optional on the GT.
