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.
