Drivers in Watkins Glen, Penn Yan and Geneva can discover facts about the Journey with our in-depth model review.
The 2018 Dodge Journey is equipped with a 173-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, though an uprated 283-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 engine is available. The four-cylinder mates to a four-speed automatic transmission, and the V6 mates to a six-speed automatic transmission, with front-wheel drive standard and all-wheel drive optional.

The ride quality is smooth and pleasant as well, which is enjoyable for passengers.
Interior Space and Comfort
The Dodge Journey provides comfortable and supportive seating for seven people, with second and third rows that can easily accommodate adult passengers. The headroom and legroom is ample as well, ensuring that passengers can stretch out and relax on long trips. Soft-touch materials and high-quality upholstery give the cabin a luxury feel, and features like dual-zone climate control, power-adjustable seating, heated seating and a heated steering wheel enhance the interior comfort.
With the third row upright, the cargo hold of the Dodge Journey offers 11 cubic feet of space. If you fold the seats, this area expands to 67.6 cubic feet, which is more than enough for your luggage, shopping bags, camping gear or anything else you may need to haul.
The Dodge Journey comes with a 4.3-inch Uconnect infotainment system and a six-speaker audio system, which is regarded as the most user-friendly infotainment system on the market. With its responsive touchscreen and sharp graphics, this system is easy to learn and navigate, and pairs well with connected apps for better entertainment options.
