Used 2015 Dodge Journey - Kelly Risk Free - Easton & Emmaus, PA

If you’re new to the SUV market, you may be pleasantly surprised how much like driving a passenger van or high-riding station wagon they have become.  It’s a much more comfortable and accessible feel; technically, the Dodge Journey is considered a Crossover SUV so it comes packed with unique features lending itself to a very exceptional ownership experience.
If you want a new SUV that seats up to seven but you don't want to spend a lot of money, this exceptional used Dodge Journey could be for you.
The Dodge Journey is notable for its value and versatility. Even with a slighty taller profile than a station wagon, it provides a suspension which feels comparative to an auto, dealing extremely well with bumps and bad pavement and cornering securely on winding roads.
This AWD Sport trim vehicle comes with the optional, smooth and responsive 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, which adds over 100 additional horsepower (283 hp) with nearly the same highway fuel economy as the standard 173-horsepower 4-cylinder engine.
This bigger and better engine is also linked to a smooth-shifting new 6-speed automatic transmission. And you will love the push-button ignition, now standard.
Every 2015 Dodge Journey came standard with antilock disc brakes, traction and stability control, active front head restraints, front side airbags, side curtain airbags and a driver knee airbag.
In crash testing by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the Journey received the top score of "Good" in the moderate-overlap frontal-offset, side-impact and roof-strength tests. Its seat and head restraint design was also rated "Good" for whiplash.
This model has the 3-row, 7-passenger configuration, the passenger space for adults is praiseworthy up front and excellent in the second row; the third row, which comes equipped with a separate rear air-conditioner, is probably best suited for the kids or occasional use (typical for third row seats in this class) but is a great-to-have option.  All the seating is very flexible.
The 2015 Dodge Journey came with copious cargo space. The rear seats flip and fold absolutely flat but uniquely to Dodge, is its available fold-flat front-passenger seat that can accommodate even larger items, particularly odd shaped furniture, ladders and skiis. It also has a clever hidden storage compartment under the seat cushion.
One of the popular features on the Dodge Journey is the Uconnect infotainment system and navigation. In addition to a large and easy-to-use 8.4-inch touch screen centered in the dash, there are supplementary buttons for climate and audio that are simple to see and use.
This Dodge line has gained a reputation for high-quality interiors with handsome materials and textures throughout the cabin with solid-looking assemblage. The gauges and dashboard have a purposeful and modern design that you might expect of a much higher priced vehicle.

Used 2014 Ram 1500 - Kelly Risk Free - Emmaus & Easton, PA
The 2014 Ram 1500 was the top pick in the full-size pickup segment. With that persuasive combination of gorgeous, quiet cabin, strong powertrain and a smooth ride this truck stole their hearts.The 2014 Ram provides an ultra comfortable ride and exceptional handling and its V6 8-speed automatic transmission was rated high in improved gas mileage. That gorgeous cabin came equipped with up to date tech features that still provide the most useful gadgets on the market.
Even the lower trim levels on the 2014 Dodge Ram 1500 could boast of super good-looking design that used quality materials, but the Laramie's luxurious wood-grain trim, leather upholstery and overall attractive design possesses superior stylishness.
The powerful 2014 Ram V6 is a full sized pickup that has increased towing ability, increased driver and passenger comfort and increased fuel efficiency. Two touchscreen interfaces are available, 5 inches and 8.4 inches, which simplify up-front tasks. The touch buttons are large and easy to see at a glance, with real knobs and buttons maintained for redundant control.
The 5.7-liter V8 engine was an optional upgrade over the base gasoline V6 engine.
This is icing on the cake for what was already a class-leading truck engine.
The 2014 Ram 1500 offers an unruffled and smooth ride whether you're on or off road. That's because the Ram is the only truck in this class that has a coil-spring rear suspension plus an optional air suspension that can adjust the ride height of the truck, plus traction control. With the flick of a switch on the dash the truck can drop 2 inches to better facilitate lift-over and entry height when parked.
The crew cab on the 2014 increased rear-seat legroom, and came available with either a 5-foot-7 or 6-foot-4 bed. There are six main trim levels: Tradesman, HFE, SLT, Sport, Laramie and Longhorn.
The Laramie trim level, only available on the extended and crew cabs, comes with pretty much all of the lower trim (Tradesman, HFE, SLT, Sport) features but adds chrome bumpers/grille, two-tone paint and a front bench seat standard, upgrades such as heated mirrors, driver memory functions, leather front seats, a six-way power passenger seat, wood-grain with chrome interior trim, an upgraded sound system with a subwoofer and more.

The Ram maintains its popular “big-rig” look in 2014 that still stands out in a crowd. That bold chrome Ram grille is unmistakable for its uniqueness.
The 2014 Ram 1500 was the only full-size pickup with the fuel economy of a smaller-displacement diesel engine yet all the pulling and working power you’d expect. The 1500 tows and hauls easily; the V8 is rated to tow 9,250 pounds, more than enough to haul a boat, a pair of motorcycles, a camper trailer, or another automobile. As for cargo capability there's a full-size 6-foot-4-inch bed behind the cabin that can take pretty much whatever you throw at it. Payload is rated at 1,680 pounds.
No full-size pickup drives more like a car than what was offered in the 2014 Ram 1500. The Ram 1500 has a multi-link rear suspension with coil springs that add to the remarkable ride, comfort and handling. Wind and road noise is minimized to the level of a mid-size sedan. And if you are pulling larger trailers, maybe an Airstream, the robust Hemi V8 is your choice.
The 2014 Ram pickup has a luxurious interior with high quality materials, a well laid out and easy to use front panel, many controls on the steering wheel, roomy cabin front and back with generous legroom, 4-Way driver and passenger seats, large front console with a three cup cupholder, fore/aft movement, 40/20/40 split bench seat, 6 speakers, clever under the seat storage compartments as well as rear storage compartments in the interior and on the exterior. You’ll find front- and side-impact airbags as well as rear seat airbags. Other exterior details include LED turn signals and taillights.
The latest Ram pickup interiors are the best in Chrysler history; materials and assembly quality is excellent. Look for the standard trip computer in the gauge cluster, the media hub containing an aux jack, USB port and a 12-volt auxiliary power outlet accessible in the fold-down console and much more; 2014 did offer an interesting array of options for customization. Come in to Kelly Risk Free to discover what kind of other options packages we have in our Ram used inventory.

All this and more with a sticker price that was thousands less than some of the category leaders.
