Performance and Handling for the 2018 Dodge Journey

The standard Journey SE trim comes equipped with 2.4L I4 engine with 173 horsepower and 166 lb-ft of torque. A 3.6L V6 engine that packs 283 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque is available on the SXT, Crossroad, and comes standard on the GT trim level. Transmission options include a 4-speed automatic with an available 6-speed automatic transmission on higher trims. AutoStick® Automatic Transmission comes standard on all trims and provides clutch-less manual shifting.

The Dodge Journey provides an exceptionally comfortable ride, due in part to its available touring suspension. Front-wheel drivetrain is standard but if you're seriously considering purchasing a midsize SUV, 4-wheel drive is highly suggested and is available on all trim levels.

Interior Design and Available Technology

The Journey now comes standard as a 3-row seater and comfortably fits up to 7 adult passengers. The rear-split second-row bench makes climbing in-an-out of the third row simple to do. The dashboard console and large touchscreen are clearly marked and easy to use. Storage bins and pockets are abundant throughout the cabin and the second-row in-floor storage bin is a unique feature perfect for storing personal items.

 Multiple USB ports and power outlets are located throughout the cabin making it easy to charge and connect devices from wherever you're seated. Six speakers are connected to the Uconnect® 4.3-inch touchscreen display and can be controlled through the steering wheel mounted controls that come standard on all trims. Uconnect® Voice Command with Bluetooth® is also available and makes connecting to all your favorite music and streaming services possible.

Active Safety Features on the Dodge Journey

No matter how far you travel, safety is always the number one priority, and the Dodge Journey provides a number of standard safety features to help keep you and your passengers out of harm's way. Active safety features include: Advanced Multistage Front Airbags, Electronic Roll Mitigation, Electronics Stability Control, Traction Control, and Tire Pressure Monitoring Display.
