Safety in the Dodge Journey
Whether you plan to haul cargo or people, you need to stay safe. Fortunately, the safety features in the 2017 Dodge Journey are abundant. The vehicle itself was built with your safety in mind. The frame is reinforced, making sure that the zones on the outside crumple instead of the interior cabin. Active head restraints and advanced airbag systems offer additional protection inside.
The best way to stay safe is to prevent collisions altogether. An accident can be one of the most stressful times of your life, so avoiding those can go a long way for your health. The Journey offers driver assistance features that guide you towards the right choices when driving. Park sense and rear park assist prevent you from driving outside of the lines, keeping you and your passengers safe.
Driver assistance features aren’t the only advanced technology in the 2017 Dodge Journey. You have access to an 8.4-inch infotainment touch screen. From here, you have access to your music, calling and messaging with Bluetooth connection available for your smartphone. You can even get a rear seat entertainment screen to keep passengers in the back entertained.
Radio 8.4 Navigation stands as one of the most useful pieces of technology in the entire vehicle. Implementing Garmin GPS navigation technology, this system allows you to plot routes, check the weather and look at local fuel prices. It can even display sports information and movie listings.
