Overview of the Dodge Journey

Learn about the Dodge Journey

Summary

The Dodge Journey was made for road trips. We’re talking about heaps of space inside and a towing capacity of up to 2,500 lbs. With as many as 500 highway miles per tank, you can get where you’re going even when driving through remote terrain. Some drivers say the base engine lacks power, so upgrade to the award-winning V6 if strong acceleration is what you’re after. All-wheel drive is also available to give you precise control over the vehicle even on gravel, ice and other difficult road conditions.

Safety

If you’re planning on using the Journey as a family car, keep in mind that older models are pretty limited in terms of safety equipment. Dodge has improved on this with each edition, however, and the 2019 version now boasts the following:

  • Parksense Rear Park Assist System® using ultrasonic sensors to detect obstacles behind the car
  • Parkview Rear Back Up Camera® with a direct feed to help you when backing into a parking space
  • Seven airbags and a crash-resistant steel frame to keep you safe in the event of an accident
  • Brake assist technology and four-wheel anti-lock brakes for when you need to stop suddenly
  • Electric stability control to help keep steady in difficult driving conditions like sharp turns or icy roads

Interior

The Dodge Journey’s interior is known for being roomy, versatile and extremely practical. It’s finished with soft-touch material for maximum comfort. Innovative storage solutions include in-floor compartments and foldable seats, making it great for large family trips or for transporting bulky equipment. There’s even a hidden cooler for keeping food and drink cold. Heated front seats and a warmed steering wheel are available as upgrades to help you ward off that winter chill.

Technology

In the 2019 edition of the Dodge Journey, you’ll find the award-winning on-board navigation system, Uconnect® 3 NAV. In addition to getting you where you need to go, the 8.4-inch touch screen console will keep your finger on the pulse with weather updates, music, movie showtimes, sports stats and even current fuel prices. Should you opt for an older year, you can still look forward to the following features as standard in most models:

  • Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free calls
  • USB and Aux inputs so you can play your own music
  • Power outlets to keep your favourite devices charged and ready to go

Space

Space is the name of the game with the Dodge Journey. Four doors, a huge trunk and three rows of seating mean you can fit the whole family—and all your stuff. Some owners have reported difficulty accessing the third row of seats, so it’s best to keep less agile passengers up front.

Comfort

There are three levels of suspension available in the Journey. Standard independent suspension keeps the vehicle, smooth, quiet and responsive. You can upgrade to the touring suspension if you want a more rigid, sportier ride, while the high-performance option gives the tightest control around corners.

Frequently asked questions about the Dodge Journey

The Dodge Journey is neither a van nor an SUV. As the classification “crossover’’ indicates, it’s considered to be a cross between the two.

Dodge Journeys for the North American and Latin American markets are produced in Mexico at Chrysler’s Toluca Car Assembly plant.

As part of the crossover category, which means competing with minivans and SUVs, all Dodge Journeys come with third row of seats as standard.

Base models of the Dodge Journey come with a four-speed automatic transmission. Different trim levels can come with manual transmission with additional speeds.

The base price for a new model of the Dodge Journey starts at around $24,000, ranging up to the GT which begins at around $38,000.
