Vehicle Profile: 2018 Dodge Journey
An American-made crossover ready for action

The Journey may not have the same devoted fanbase that Dodge’s performance cars have, however, the mid-size sport utility vehicle still bears many of the brand’s qualities. Check out the best aspects of the 2018 Dodge Journey: rugged capability, a spacious interior and standard safety features.

Muscle for the daily shuffle

Two engine options are available on the 2018 Journey: a standard 2.4-liter I4 DOHC 16-valve and an available 3.6-liter V6 24-valve. If you plan on using the Journey as your daily driver around town, the 2.4-liter engine paired to a four-speed automatic transmission is the choice for you. It opts for fuel efficiency, with an EPA-estimated rate of 21 mpg city/highway combined.*

On the other hand, the V6 and its six-speed automatic transmission prioritize strength, churning out a much higher 283 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, with fuel efficiency taking a back seat.

Room for people and cargo

With an overall height of 66.6 inches and length of 192.4, the 2018 Journey comfortably seats up to seven people with approximately 2 feet of legroom in the third row. For a crossover, that’s an impressive seating capacity.

Fitting luggage and cargo in your Journey isn’t a problem either. The standard storage area is over 10 cubic feet which can expand to over 67 cubic feet when you fold the seats down. That way, you have all the room you need for your hardware and recreational equipment.

Standard safety features on every Journey

Built for unexpected journeys and challenging trails, the Dodge Journey’s engineering makes it a safe vehicle for your family. To keep you in control behind the wheel, Dodge has outfitted the Journey with supportive features like traction control, electronic roll mitigation and trailer sway damping, which keep the vehicle steadily on its course. A ParkView® rear back up camera is also available.

In addition to a durable frame, the Journey is equipped with a collection of strategically positioned airbags in case of a collision.

For a quality crossover you can rely on, the 2018 Dodge Journey delivers. Take a closer look with a test drive.
