5 Features on the Dodge Journey You Will Love

Dodge Journey Paris

If you love SUVs, you’re going to love the Dodge Journey. If you’ve never owned one, isn’t it time to correct that? Here are five features of the Journey that will capture your imagination and your heart.

Power and Performance

The Journey provides two engines from which to choose. The basic 4-cylinder, 173-horsepower engine allows you to go for up to 500 miles between fill-ups with an average of 26 mpg highway. Bump that up to the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 that puts out 283 horsepower, and you’ll still see 25 mpg highway and go up to 500 miles between gas stations.



The Journey’s integrated system offers an AM/FM radio, MP3 and CD players, a USB port, Uconnect Voice Command, Voice Text Reply, Hands-Free calling, a Bluetooth Streaming Audio, and a 4.3-inch touchscreen. The optional SiriusXM Travel Link will tell you where the closest gas station is and what the current gas price is there, a really handy feature when you’re away from home.



To put a damper on the age-old question, “Are we there yet?” just pop in a movie or video game into the optional Rear Seat Video Group I and keep your backseat riders entertained. A 9-inch screen drops down from the console overhead. It comes with two wireless headphones and a remote control. Every now and then, just remind the kids that they’re missing things out the window that they may never see again.


Convenience and Comfort

With the Keyless Enter ‘n Go, your key fob will have your door ready to unlock when you pull on the handle. The engine starts easily when you press the Start/Stop button with your foot on the brake.

The optional leather-trimmed and heated front seats and steering wheel will keep you toasty in the coldest weather. The Three-Zone Automatic Temperature Control will keep everyone in each row of seats at their own level of comfort by setting their ideal temperature levels.



The Journey offers many safety features. The ParkView Rear Back Up Camera helps you with backing up, giving you a clear view of what’s behind you, including small children. The optional SiriusXM Traffic feature gives current traffic updates, such as info on accidents, traffic flow, scheduled road maintenance and closings, and other traffic-related information. Of course, the Journey has a plethora of airbags to cushion the blow should you be involved in an accident.
