Overview

The Dodge Journey is Chrysler's small crossover SUV, with seating for either five or seven, depending on equipment. It's available in five different trim levels: SE, SXT, Crossroad, Crossroad Plus and R/T.

Two engines are available: a 2.4L 4-cylinder and a 3.6L V6. The 4-cylinder makes 173 horsepower and 166 lb-ft of torque, while maintaining an EPA estimated fuel mileage of 19 mpg city and 26 mpg highway. The 3.6L V6 makes 283 horsepower and 260 lb-ft 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 R/T 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 listed as 1,000 pounds for the 4-cylinder and 2,500 pounds for the V6.

The SE starts at a bargain price 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 R/T adds standard premium leather seating, heated seats and steering wheel, automatic headlights, 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 an array of standard safety features, including driver and passenger airbags, front-side airbags and curtain side airbags that extend to all seating rows. Also available are anti-lock brakes, an anti-skid system and traction control.

A host of options are available on the Journey, depending on the trim level selected. A third-row 50/50 split folding bench seat and 3-zone climate control are available on all Journeys, even on the American Value. 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 SIRIUS satellite radio. On the SXT, a ParkView rear backup camera is available. Navigation and a rear-seat video system are optional on the R/T.
