The 2019 Dodge Journey is a luxurious, versatile, and spacious three-row SUV that seats up to seven people in comfort and style. It inherits some of its bold, aggressive styling from its muscle car stablemates. You can choose from three trim levels, front- or all-wheel-drive, and two engines, enabling you to customize your Journey to suit your family and your style.
The Journey is available in SE, Crossroad, and GT trims. The SE has the signature crosshair grille with chrome accents, quad automatic headlamps, high beam daytime running lights, fog lamps, 17-inch steel wheels beneath sculpted fender flares, body-colored door handles and power heated side mirrors, black roof rails, and LED taillights.
Crossroad models add a gloss black grille, chrome-accented fascia, black headlamp bezels, platinum chrome roof rails, and 19-inch black alloy wheels. GT trim features a body-colored fascia and grille, unique 19-inch wheels, and bright dual exhaust tips.
Front-wheel drive SE and Crossroad trims are powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 173 horsepower and 166 pound-feet of torque. It's coupled with a smooth four-speed automatic transmission.
Optional for those models and standard on AWD models and GT trim is a 283 horsepower 3.6-liter V-6 engine delivering 260 pound-feet of torque. The V-6 is paired with a slick-shifting six-speed automatic transmission.
With the four-cylinder engine, you'll get up to 17 miles per gallon in the city and 25 mpg on the highway, while the V-6 will return up to 16 mpg and 24 mpg for city and highway driving. V-6 models have a towing capacity of up to 2,500 pounds when equipped with the Trailer Tow Prep Group.
The available on-demand AWD system drives only the front wheels in normal conditions. When it senses slippage, power is transferred to the rear wheels to provide maximum traction.
Inside the Journey, you'll find a second row with 60/40 split fold-flat seats, and a 50/50 split fold-flat third row. For ease of access and comfort, both rows tilt, slide, and recline. You have a maximum cargo capacity of 67.6 cubic feet.
SE trim features cloth upholstery, cruise control, air conditioning, a 3.5-inch driver information display, multifunction steering wheel, three 12-volt power outlets, a 4.3-inch touch screen, and six-speaker audio with USB and auxiliary inputs.
Crossroad models offer a power driver's seat, leather-bound steering wheel and shift knob, tri-zone climate control, an 8.4-inch touch screen, Bluetooth with voice command, a CD player, and satellite radio. The GT trim adds leather-trimmed seating with heated front seats, remote start, a 115-volt power point, and a premium sound system with subwoofer and a 368-watt amplifier.
Safe handling is assured by traction control, electronic stability control, electronic roll mitigation and, for safe towing, trailer sway damping. Brake performance is aided by four-wheel ABS with brake assist and electronic brake force distribution.
Also standard is an automatic dimming rearview mirror and an integrated rear camera. Crossroad models have the option of the ParkSense rear parking assistance system which is standard on the GT.
