What are the engines available with the Journey?
The 2018 Dodge Journey has an available all-wheel-drive system that drives with the front-wheels until power to the back-wheel needs to be added! This system also kicks in while driving on dry roads at the speeds between 25 mpg and 65 mpg as it enhances the performance driving. To complement this system further, the standard 2.4-liter 16-valve DOHC four-cylinder engine produces 166 lb-ft of torque and 173 horsepower, and is mated with a four-speed automatic transmission! For added power, even though this four-cylinder engine packs a punch, you can choose the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine that creates 260 lb-ft of torque and 283 horsepower, and pairs itself with a six-speed automatic transmission that is smooth-shifting. Performance is most definitely not an issue with the Dodge Journey, and whether you’re looking for plenty of power for daily life or an added kick for that nice revving noise, the Journey gives you those options.

Safety has always been at the forefront of Dodge’s minds when creating vehicles, and for the 2018 Dodge Journey, Dodge is offering over forty different security and safety features. Some of these standard options include trailer-sway control, front seat-mounted side airbags, electronic stability control with all-speed traction control, multistage front passenger airbags, and side-curtain airbags that cover each of the three rows.
What is the model lineup for the Journey?

Other additional features, like voice commands, three-zone temperature control with rear-seat vents, and a power-adjustable driver seat can be added to the Connectivity, Popular Equipment, or Comfort/Convenience packages. The Journey Crossroad, a few steps above the Journey SE, gives you entertainment features like an 8.4-inch touchscreen, and an optional rear-seat entertainment system, and a premium six-speaker stereo system with subwoofer. Other features include 19-inch black-painted alloy wheels and an optional Convenience package that adds rear parking sensors and a universal garage door opener. The highest model you can get with the Journey is the Journey GT, adding heated front seats, 19-inch alloys, a security alarm, a heated steering wheel, a premium stereo system, and leather upholstery. If all of those features aren’t enough for you, then you can consider adding a Trailer Tow Prep package!
