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.
