Dodge Journey

When it comes to creating affordable vehicles for families, there aren’t many companies that do it better than Dodge.

The Dodge Journey isn’t a winner in contemporary styling or flashy technology, though it does provide families with an inexpensive and reliable way to get everyone from point A to point B. If you’re looking for a bargain, look no further. 

The Beginnings of the Dodge Journey

The Dodge Journey first began its trek back in 2007 at the Frankfurt Motor Show, though it wasn’t until 2009 that it hit the production market. The company made the crossover as a replacement for the Dodge Magnum, though they were quite indirect about it. The design was based on the mid-sized Avenger sedan.

A Rolling Stone – The Technology and Performance of the Dodge Journey

The 2019 Dodge Journey comes complete with a four-cylinder engine that is paired with a four-speed automatic transmission. Of course, drivers have the option to upgrade to the V-6 engine with a six-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel-drive.

On the inside, drivers have access to your standard three-row seating and a variety of basic controls. In terms of technology, there is an 8.4” touchscreen with a 4G LTE mobile hotspot. The only safety feature that is available on the Journey is rear parking sensors. Go for an upgrade and you can get a few luxury features, such as three-zone automatic climate control and leather surfaces.

The First Generation of the Dodge Journey (2009-Present)

One reason why the Dodge Journey might seem a bit dated is that it has been in its first generation since 2009. With that said, they did give the crossover a bit of an update in 2011. Some of the modifications included the redesigned interior space, a lower front fascia, more efficient steering and suspension, and of course, the new Dodge logo. 

The Dodge Journey In the News

In sad, recent news, two people were recently killed in a wrong-way crash on Route 1 when a Chevrolet Impala was driven into oncoming traffic, rammed a 2018 Dodge Journey and killed the woman inside, before exploding near the Army Barracks shop. 

Celebrity Endorsements of the Dodge Journey

Because it is such a plain-jane vehicle, you probably wouldn’t expect to see any celebrities cruising around in it. We were even surprised to see Amber Heard doing her grocery shopping in her Dodge Journey.

Best Dodge Journey Groups

The Dodge Journey Forum is the best social hotspot for Dodge Journey owners and enthusiasts from all over the world. It’s a great place to discuss first impressions of the vehicle, talk about Journey modifications, or find information on troubleshooting any vehicle difficulties. 

The Dodge Journey – A Practical Crossover

When it comes to competitive pricing, Dodge does things really well. The Journey is one of the lowest-priced three-seater crossovers on the market right now, and it is perfect for larger families that are on a budget. It may not have the top-notch, cutting-edge, fancy features that you see in other modern crossovers, though who is to say that we need those features anyway? Looking to cut back and live simply? The Dodge Journey will do you just fine.
