New 2016 Dodge Journey at Earnhardt Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram for Gilbert, AZ
The 2016 Dodge Journey makes the difference between selecting a minivan or SUV much better than any other model on the market. The Journey is a solid family pick, and one of the least expensive ways to get an extra row of seating. The Journey keeps on selling on value and pricing at a time when it's been carried over without serious change for a number of years. It's aesthetically bigger than most of the compact crossovers it's shopped against, which means that if space is important, you are getting more vehicle for the money.
Under the Journey's Hood
The 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 makes 283 horsepower and works great with the 6-speed automatic when you're really pushing the Journey. This is the vehicle you should go with. The Journey's handling is reasonably responsive. Its suspension loads and unloads confidently, like that of a lower and leaner vehicle, and there is none of the excessive bounding and wallowing when you hit a bump mid-corner. The ride quality remains a strong point, with the proper damping and roll control for a family vehicle. The lineup of Journey models has been revamped for 2016, and now the V-6 is optional on SXT, Crossroad, and Crossroad Plus models but standard on R/T models as well as all models with all-wheel drive.
Design of Dodge Journey
The 2016 Dodge Journey takes away the middle ground between a wagon and SUV. It certainly has its own look in the crossover space, one that blends some minivan practicality and features into a shape that some will find far more more pleasing to the eyes than a minivan. The look of the Journey is smooth, and there is plenty to love in the simple layout, which has large dials and knobs framed by high-quality materials. Although the interior materials are dark, there's enough well-placed bright work to break it up and also give it more of an upscale feel.
