5 Reasons Why Your Next Vehicle Should be a Dodge Journey

 Dodge Journey

Are you searching for an SUV with plenty of engine power and towing potential? Or perhaps a crossover with impressive styling and ample interior seating? If so, the 2017 Dodge Journey is a solid blend of utility and comfort. From its modest $21,195 MSRP to its advanced tech and safety systems, the Dodge Journey has a lot to offer. Here are just five reasons why it’s worth a test drive.

Exterior

Whether you choose the SE, SXT, Crossroad, Crossroad Plus, or GT, there are distinct exterior accents to complement each trim. These include foldable power mirrors, roof side rails, a unique front fascia, a gloss black front grille, platinum chrome accents, and sculpted fender flares.

Opt for the Chrome Appearance Group on the SXT for bright door handles and 19-inch chrome-clad aluminum wheels with all-season tires, or the Blacktop Package with the SXT and GT for 19-inch gloss black aluminum wheels, gloss black exterior mirrors, and a black headlamp bezel.

Power and Performance

The 2017 Dodge Journey offers two engine options: a standard 2.4-liter 16-valve four-cylinder and an available 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6. The four-cylinder outputs 173 horsepower and 166 pound-feet of torque, while the V-6 delivers up to 283 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Both see up to 25 mpg on the highway.

Experience smooth handling and control with the anti-lock braking system, all-speed traction control, electronic stability control, and electronic roll mitigation. The fully independent MacPherson strut front suspension and multi-link rear suspension also work to keep you stable on the road.

Available performance features include an all-wheel-drive system for tackling low-traction surfaces with ease, a touring-tuned or high-performance suspension for extra power, and a towing capacity of up to 2,500 pounds with the V-6 engine.

Interior

Indulge in luxury behind the wheel of your new Journey. It features leather-trimmed front seats, ample legroom, dual-zone manual climate control, and 60/40 split-folding second-row seatbacks. Optional amenities include a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, six-way power driver’s seat with lumbar support, three-zone automatic climate control, child booster seats, and third-row seating.

In addition, there’s more than enough interior space for all your cargo needs. You’ll find an in-floor storage compartment and cooler, as well as available in-seat storage and up to 67.6 cubic feet of space with the second-row seats folded flat.

Technology

This crossover isn’t just stylish but also packs plenty of standard and optional gadgets for tech-savvy passengers. These include a navigation system with 8.4-inch touch screen, six Infinity speakers, SiriusXM satellite radio, a Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth connectivity, and a second-row 9-inch screen mounted on the overhead console.

Safety

The 2017 Journey comes with all the safety features you’d expect from a Dodge vehicle. Standard perks include a dual-phase steel body structure, energy-absorbing front and rear crumple zones, active front seat head restraints, and seven multi-stage front air bags, including knee air bags for the driver.

Available features include a ParkView Rear Back Up Camera with Uconnect touch screen and ParkSense Rear Park Assist System with ultrasonic sensors to detect objects behind you.

If you’re looking for a crossover with plenty of style and performance, put the 2017 Dodge Journey at the top of your shopping list.
