Journey: The Can-Do Crossover

2013 Dodge Journey

Need a capable, do-everything vehicle? Here’s Journey, the can-do crossover.

 

“This vehicle is actually part compact car, part crossover, part minivan and part SUV,” says Dodge Brand Manager Pieter Hogeveen. “It’s the most versatile vehicle in its class. We offer five- and seven-passenger seating, four- and six-cylinder engines, front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. The Journey can even tow up to 2,500 pounds.”

 

Engineers have developed an interesting design metric they call form efficiency. Essentially, the term relates to how much functionality can be packed into a vehicle’s footprint. The Journey, with its optional third-row seating, can carry seven adults – yet it hardly takes up more space on your garage floor than a compact sedan. That’s an A+ in form efficiency.

 

Despite its highly efficient packaging, the Journey gives up nothing in power and performance. Buyers can choose an efficient 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with 173 hp or the award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 with 283 hp and a muscular 260 lb.-ft. of torque both offer up to 500 miles driving range on a single tank of gas. No other vehicle in the Journey’s class offers the Pentastar’s unique combination of power and refinement.

 

Journey leads the way in safety for your most precious cargo, with over 50 standard and available safety and security features available such as: Electronic Stability Control, ParkSense® Rear Park Assist System, ParkView® Rear Back Up Camera, seven airbags and second row child booster seats. It’s no wonder the Dodge Journey was selected as an IIHS Top Safety Pick.

 

All Dodge Journey models come with Trailer Sway Control as standard equipment. This intelligent system employs sophisticated sensors to identify all the vehicle’s motions that aren’t produced by steering wheel inputs, and then takes measures to counter them, reducing road sway. The result? Towing doesn’t have to be a tense and stressful experience. Trailer Sway Control can help you relax and enjoy the drive. And that’s just one more reason Dodge calls the Journey “America’s most versatile, affordable and fastest growing crossover.”
