Since 2009, Dodge’s contribution to the very busy small to midsize SUV segment is the Dodge Journey. Unlike some smaller SUV offerings, the Journey can be fitted with a third row of seats for smaller passengers. Journey entered the marketplace as Dodge was ending the larger Magnum, though the two vehicles are significantly different.
The original configuration through 2010 was front or all-wheel drive and a choice of 4-cylinder and 6-cylinder engines. Both engines were considered lackluster at best, but this improved when Dodge brought into play the new at that time 3.6 liter Pentastar engine with 283 horsepower. Dodge also introduced a new 6-speed automatic transmission and a more modern and cleaner interior look.
The vehicle has remained functionally unchanged since then. The Journey seats seven with the third row only sized for children. Storage is ample with an array of storage areas scattered all around the vehicle. The second row bins in the floor can even be used as coolers if you wish. Safety features are adequate for this class, including four-wheel disc brakes with ABS, active head restraints, traction control, stability control, and airbags to protect all passengers. Available features include a rear-view camera and integrated child seats in the second row. The Chrysler UConnect infotainment system is used in the Journey, with Bluetooth and USB standard. Satellite radio may be available in some model years, but has been removed from current models due to declining interest.
A Crossroad trim package was added in 2014 as an attempt to match all-terrain competitors, but the changes are mostly cosmetic with darker outside accents, mock skid plates, and a unique leather/cloth interior. A Journey GT was added in 2017.
