For drivers looking for an SUV that provides the cargo space, power, and technology they want, look no further than the 2018 Dodge Journey.
Trim levels (Exterior)
By providing buyers with the option of eight different trim levels on the new Journey, buyers can build a vehicle that suits all of their needs. Available trims include the SE, SXT, SE all-wheel drive, Crossroad, SXT all-wheel drive, Crossroad all-wheel drive, GT, and GT all-wheel drive. The exterior of the Dodge Journey helps it stand out on the road with chrome accent features, heated side mirrors, roof rack, and optional front and rear mud flaps. Higher trim levels come standard with touch lift gate cargo doors and full floor consoles.
You can personalize the exterior of your vehicle by choosing from one of ten available paint colors and adding optional exterior feature upgrades like sculpted fender flares, dual bright exhaust tips, and black headlamp bezels.
The new 2018 Dodge Journey comes powered by one of two engines depending on the trim level you choose. Buyers can go with the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with dual variable timing paired with an automatic four-speed transmission, or they can opt for the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine paired with an automatic six-speed transmission. The 2.4-liter engine produces 173 horsepower with 166 pound-feet of torque, and the 3.6-liter V6 produces 283 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque.
Most trims come with an available all-wheel-drive system that provides for perfect road handling without driver intervention. The system utilizes front-wheel drive and utilizes rear wheels when the road or terrain demands it, especially on low traction surfaces such as gravel roads and ice. The 2018 Journey also sports a fully independent suspension system with MacPherson struts on the front and a multi-link design on the rear which helps to provide smoother handling and a significantly quieter ride.
The Dodge Journey allows for up to 2500 pounds of towing capacity when equipped with the 3.6-liter Pentastar engine and Standard Trailer Sway Control. The latter feature is combined with electronic stability control to help apply braking when necessary to reduce the sway of your tow load.
The new Journey is built for comfort for both drivers and passengers with six and eight-way power drivers seats that come with leather or cloth upholstery. You can give passengers more leg room with third-row reclining seats. The interior also comes with a wide range of convenience features including Bluetooth connectivity, voice-activated radio, navigation systems, and an optional remote start. You can add to the luxury of your Journey by opting for heated seats, a heated steering wheel, and an upgraded sound system.
Stay safe in your new Dodge Journey with both standard and technology-based safety features including front and side impact airbags, daytime running lights, side impact bars, and an anti-roll bar. A rear backup camera will help you reduce your risk of accident, while brake assist and electronic roll mitigation will help you if you ever have to avoid a collision.
