2018 Dodge : Full View.



Built on the bones of the Dodge Avenger mid-size sedan and developed in the waning days of DaimlerChrysler, the Dodge Journey survived the cuts during the Cerberus era prior to Chrysler’s 2009 bankruptcy.

The Journey’s long suit isn’t refinement but bang for the buck. It packs a lot of standard features for not a lot of money.


The Journey comes in base SE, mainstream SXT, stylish Crossroad, and well-equipped GT trims. A 173-hp 2.4-liter inline-four with a four-speed automatic transmission (there’s a sign of how old it is only four ratios ) is standard on all front-drive Journeys except the GT. All-wheel-drive models and the front-drive GT come with a 283-hp 3.6-liter V-6 bolted to a six-speed automatic. For this review, we sampled an AWD Crossroad V-6 model.



2017, the V-6 powered GT model replaced the ambitiously named R/T and featured a stiffer suspension, red-stitched leather seats, 19-inch aluminum wheels, and a premium sound system. All 2018 Journey models now come standard with a third-row seat the five-seat version has been dropped which technically makes it a seven-passenger vehicle, so long as the aft occupants aren’t fully grown
