2017 Dodge Journey at Roberts Chrysler Dodge for Meriden, CT

The 2017 Dodge Journey is a seven-passenger crossover SUV that offers unmatched versatility, comfort, and overall value to customers who need all of the above. The Journey competes against a number of vehicles, including the Kia Sorento, Hyundai Santa Fe, and Toyota Highlander, but it delivers the best value and the most fun for the whole family. The 2017 model has received some great updates for the new year, including two new paint colors in Rhino Clear Coat and Spitfire Orange. The individual trims have also received added features, and the GT trim has replaced last year's R/T trim.

Under the Journey's Hood

Dodge has consistently engineered the finest powertrains on the market, and the Journey offers two of the best options in the segment. The standard engine is a 2.4-liter inline-4, which is linked to a four-speed automatic transmission and produces 166 lb-ft of torque and 173 horsepower. It has an estimated city/high fuel economy of 19/25 miles per gallon and features a front-wheel drive system. It has a towing maximum of up to 1,000 pounds. Additionally, Dodge offers their award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine as an option. The Pentastar V6 utilizes a six-speed automatic transmission, and it can produce 283 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. The fuel economy ratings will depend on which drivetrain is chosen; the front-wheel drive system will offer a city/highway rating of 17/25 mpg, while the all-wheel drive system can offer up to 16/24 mpg.

Design of Dodge Journey

The Durango is available in five trim levels, and customers can choose between two seating configurations for either five- or seven-passengers. The base SE trim is well-equipped, and customers can look forward to keyless entry/ignition, a 4.3-inch touchscreen, and a six-speaker sound system with a USB port. The next trim level, which is called the SXT, will add a unique front fascia and a Flexible Seating package. With the Crossroad, customers will get a leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth, and 19-inch wheels. A Crossroad Plus package will add tri-zone automatic climate control leather upholstery, and an 8.4-inch Uconnect system. The GT trim offers a sport-tuned suspension, remote engine start, heated front seats, and a premium audio system. Dodge offers many of their high-end features as standalone options on the lower trims.
