The 2016 Journey is a 7-passenger, 5-door, mid-size Crossover SUV. The vehicle suitably hits the stride between a minivan and SUV and offers high value for the tech-savvy, safety-conscious, and family-oriented customers. Actually, the 2016 Journey also splits the difference between an SUV and minivan better than any car on the road, because of its great flexibility, perfectly configured and roomy interior, and sturdy yet fuel-efficient performance.
The 2016 Dodge Journey suitably demonstrates the middle ground between a wagon and SUV regarding general exterior styling. The design is unique with modern styling; square shoulders, chiseled sheet-metal, and flared wheel-wells. New Ring of the Fire LED tail lamps has been fitted which offer the car a rather unique and distinct appeal. The mirrors possess power and heated features to remain free of ice, frost, and fog while also assisting in offering an unobstructed view of cars and objects which share the road.
The 2016 Dodge Journey is luxurious and comfortable. This can be owed to the modern Sedoso and Strobe cloth on the seats and hassle-free dashboard layout that has huge knobs and dials which are framed by very quality materials. Actually, the Dodge Journey has soft-touch, comfortable materials on door panels and armrests to offer comfort to your elbows. Also, the interior is amazingly roomy and folding the seatbacks can offer you nearly 67.5 feet of cargo room.
Technology in the 2016 Journey starts with the standard CD player, a 4.3-inch touchscreen display, an auxiliary audio input, and 6-speakers. The R/T enhances a 368-watt sound system with six premium speakers. Also, higher trims come with the standard Bluetooth-integrated Uconnect Voice Command infotainment, a video monitor, an 8.4-inch screen and satellite radio.
Engine/ Fuel Efficiency
The base engine in every FWD-equipped variant other than the R/T is a 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder (I4) power plant. It’s matched with a standard 4 speed automatic transmission for 166lb-ft of torque and 173HP. The I4’s mileage to remains at 26 MPG Highway /19 MPG city/21 combined-noticeably lower than many competitors.
The standard safety equipment that aboard the 2016 Journey include four-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), and front side-mounted airbags. There is also traction and stability control, post-collision safety system and head-protection airbags. Higher trims, beginning with the SXT, also features standard front driving/fog lights, as the R/T and the Crossroad Plus throw in a regular remote anti-theft alarm.
