Here's a look at its most impressive features for 2019.Search Inventory
Three trims are available this year, including the SE, Crossroad, and GT. Each model sports a front crosshair grille, sleek front and rear fascias, and luminous LED taillights. The base also comes with 17-inch steel wheels. Choosing a higher trim unlocks even more accessories, from 19-inch wheels with an aluminum-alloy finish to chrome roof rails perfect for hauling outdoor equipment.
Fueling the Dodge Journey is a standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and four-speed automatic transmission. That combination is good enough for 173 horsepower and 166 pound-feet of torque. Next up is a GT-tuned, 3.6-liter V-6 pushing out 283 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. This unit is also available for the SE and Crossroad and pairs nicely with a six-speed automatic transmission.
The Dodge Journey isn't exactly compact, but it's not full-size, either. What its midsize frame excels at is agility and maneuvering. It also experiences limited body roll, which helps balance out your vehicle's response to certain actions like steering or going over potholes. Plus, it keeps a firm grip on the road, regardless of your preference for front-wheel or all-wheel-drive. The latter just happens to give you an upper hand if you decide to go off-road.
You can easily fit an entire family inside this SUV, or at least one that doesn't surpass seven members. The second row is also available with integrated child booster seats that help keep your kids safely strapped in. You won't have to worry about running out of space for your luggage, either. The Dodge Journey features 67.6 cubic feet of storage room with the second and third rows folded flat, plus a group of hidden and obvious cargo bins placed throughout the cabin. There's much to explore in entertainment as well. The SE sets the stage for its siblings with a 4.3-inch Uconnect infotainment screen and six-speaker audio system. The Crossroad and GT raise the standards with an 8.4-inch multimedia interface, as well as GPS navigation and a complimentary trial to SiriusXM satellite radio. These two models even pile on dual 9-inch monitors and wireless headphones in the second row, a setup that gives you unlimited access to your favorite shows and films.
If you want an SUV with a dependable safety net, the 2019 Dodge Journey has just the package for you. It sticks to humble basics like head protection air bags in all three rows, plus second-row safety door locks and a rear backup camera. Rear parking sensors are also up for grabs, but you'll have to spend a little more to get them. If these options aren't enough, you'll be happy to know this SUV earned good scores from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, particularly for roof strength and side protection.
