Dodge Journey Models and Journey History

An indirect replacement to the Dodge Magnum, the Journey was based on a car-like platform borrowed from the mid-sized Avenger sedan. Capable of seating up to seven passengers with three rows of seating, the Dodge Journey was introduced in 2009 as a family crossover.


The 2009 Journey crossover was offered with a four-cylinder and six-cylinder engine choice. Exclusively driven through the front wheels, the base SE model was powered by a 2.4-liter generating 173 horsepower and 166 pound-feet of torque. Fuel economy with the four-cylinder was rated at 19 miles per gallon in the city or 25 miles per gallon highway. Propelled by a 235-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine, the Dodge Journey provided the choice of two-wheel drive or available all-wheel drive.



Standard features found on the 2009 Dodge Journey included three-row side curtain airbags, Electronic Stability Program, air conditioning, anti-lock braking system and an MP3-compatible stereo system. Along with a retuned suspension in 2011, the Dodge Journey was a recipient of Chryslers new 3.6-liter Pentastar engine.



Combined with a six-speed automatic transmission, the available 283-horsepower six-cylinder engine was a 20 percent performance improvement over the previous V-6. Maximum towing for the Dodge Journey was assessed at 2,500 pounds. In 2012, an American Value Package was offered as a new four-cylinder base version of the Dodge crossover.



A 4.3-inch Uconnect touch media center was part of the standard features provided with the American Value Package. For 2014, the addition of the Crossroad trim gave the Journey a bolder appearance with unique front and rear fascia panels and 19-inch Hyper Black wheels.
