Performance

Sure, when brands tout their compact SUVs’ versatility, they’re certainly referring to the vehicle’s mechanics. However, just because these well-rounded systems may be able to offer, say, both power and efficiency, that doesn’t necessarily mean that those specs are anything to write home about. Often times, these numbers tend to be overwhelming.

Well, lauding the 2016 Dodge Journey’s mechanical versatility is a no-brainer. The two engine options actually pump out solid power specs and deliver incredible efficiency. Meanwhile, the accompanying mechanisms pair with the engine to offer an optimal driving experience. The suspension system makes for a smooth, quiet ride, while the all-wheel-drive capabilities make driving through rain or snow an absolute breeze.

You can’t always trust the supposed “versatility” of a vehicle. However, you can trust what Dodge is selling when they praise the 2016 Journey.


Two Versatile Engines

Regardless of which of the two engine options you opt for, you can be assured that your Journey will be ready for an adventure. The standard option is perfectly capable, as the 2.4-liter 16-valve four-cylinder engine delivers 173 horsepower and 166 pounds-feet of torque. Thanks to the inclusion of Variable Valve Timing and the automatic transmission, drivers can expect a 26 mile per gallon highway efficiency, as well as a 500-mile range on only one tank of gas.

Meanwhile, the award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine provides a whole lot of power at 283 horsepower and 260 pounds-feet of torque. If you equip your Journey with the Trailer Tow Prep Group, you can expect your SUV to haul up to 2,500 pounds. Despite this athleticism, drivers can still expect the unit to deliver a 25 mile per gallon highway fuel efficiency.

Well-Rounded Performance

The rest of the Journey’s mechanics may be more impressive than the actual engine options. The independent suspension uses MacPherson struts up front to provide the driver with a smooth driving experience, as well as one of the quieter rides in the segment. Drivers could alternatively opt for the touring suspension (which helps “enhance” the vehicle’s responsiveness) or the high-performance suspension, which makes for a “firmer” ride.

Meanwhile, the available all-wheel-drive capabilities are perfect for those who have to drive through pesky winter storms. The unit excels on low-traction roads, so you’ll be able to trek through any snow or ice. Plus, the system won’t overtax your ride, as it will only utilize the all-wheel settings when necessary.

Interior

You’re probably going to spend a lot of time focusing on your new ride’s exterior appearance. However, the driver is ultimately spending the majority of his or her time inside the vehicle. Therefore, the interior should be prioritized just as much.

Fortunately, the 2016 Dodge Journey offers all of the comfort and technological features you could possibly want from your new ride. The cabin is cozy and roomy, providing plenty of space for passengers to spread out and plenty of amenities to keep them comfortable. Plus, drivers can also take full advantage of the 67.6-cubic-feet of cargo space without compromising that pleasurable experience.

Furthermore, the innovative technological features help modernize the cabin. The Journey’s touchscreen provides both entertainment and assistance, making it the perfect companion for any trip. If you find that your passengers are getting antsy, a number of luxuries will keep them occupied for hours.


Comfortable and Roomy

You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more comfortable ride than the Dodge Journey, and that sentiment can mostly be attributed to the vehicle’s incredible interior dimensions. The SUV provides plenty of leg room for each occupant, regardless of their row. Plus, when owners utilize the 60/40-split-folding second-row seatback and the easy-to-manipulate third row, they can take full advantage of the 67.6-cubic-feet of cargo space. There are plenty of additional places to hide your cargo, including the in-floor cooler and the available in-seat storage.

The comfort amenities don’t end there. The available heated front seats and heated steering wheel will allow those sitting up front to remain cozy, even on those cold winter mornings. The soft-touch upholstery materials will be welcomed by those passengers sitting out back, and they’ll also appreciate the Three-Zone Automatic Temperature Control, which provides an ideal interior temperature.

Technology-Filled

When discussing the Journey’s interior, we also have to focus on the variety of available technological amenities. The Radio 8.4 NAV system allows drivers to utilize a comprehensive navigation service, real-time alerts, and SiriusXM Satelite Radio via the 8.4-inch touchscreen. Drivers can also access their WiFi hotspot and Bluetooth capabilities via the system, and the USB/AUX and power outlets will allow all passengers to keep their gadgets fully charged.

Out back, passengers can appreciate the second-row nine-inch screen that comes available with the Rear Seat Video Group I. A pair of wireless headphones will allow the occupants to focus in on their movie, while the front passenger and driver can appreciate their preferred tunes via the Journey’s available sound systems. This includes six Infinity speakers, a 368-watt amplifier, and a subwoofer.

Safety

Being one of the most versatile vehicles in the class, some drivers may rely on the 2016 Dodge Journey as a family vehicle. Therefore, drivers will want to be assured that their new ride offers a number of preventative and protective safety features.

You shouldn’t have any worries while riding behind the wheel of the 2016 Dodge Journey. The SUV offers an assortment of protective features, including an advanced air bag system, exterior crumple zones, and a high-strength steel body. When you combine these factors, drivers can relax knowing the Journey will do its best to keep the occupants safe.

Of course, the vehicle also offers several technologies that should initially keep you out of harm’s way. These features help make for a safer driving experience, improving traction, control, and stoppage power. Regardless of where you’re driving, you should find that the 2016 Dodge Journey is ready to battle through the conditions and keep its passengers safe.


Protective Features

If a driver finds themselves in an emergency, the Dodge Journey will do everything in its power to keep the occupants secure. The seven advanced air bags essentially provide “a pillow for almost every passenger,” while the driver knee blocker should provide protection for a vulnerable body part. Furthermore, the active front head seat restraints will reduce head and neck injuries, especially during rear-end collisions.

The exterior crumple zones are intended to absorb the energy from a collision, thus keeping it away from the passengers. The protective frame will play a similar role, as the high-strength steel is better able to take on damage. In other words, your compact SUV’s exterior will try its best to keep all of the occupants safe during an accident.

Preventative Features

Fortunately, the 2016 Dodge Journey includes a number of safety functions that should prevent the driver from being in an accident in the first place. Technologies like Electronic Stability Control help make for a safer driving experience, providing optimal traction and control. Regardless of the road conditions, drivers shouldn’t have to worry about their ride suddenly spinning out or skidding. The four-wheel disc antilock brake system will also contribute, as drivers will find that they have superb stoppage power.

Even the ParkView Rear Back-Up Camera and the ParkSense Rear Park Assist System will play a role in keeping your new ride out of harm’s way. With the two technologies combining to make it easier to reverse and park, you hopefully won’t find any scratches or dents on your new Dodge Journey.
