The Dodge Journey is one of the newest crossover SUVs to be brought to market in recent years. Currently the company’s only mid-sized SUV, it is Dodge’s response to the growing crossover SUV marketing, which shows no sign of slowing down into 2015.
Miami drivers might notice similarities to the Chrysler Pacifica, which ended production as the Dodge Journey entered the market for the 2009 model year. The Journey took the Pacifica’s place at that time as the Chrysler Group’s primary crossover SUV.
An affordable option for families of all sizes, the 2014 Dodge Journey is capable of seating seven passengers and starts at under $20,000 at Kendall Dodge. This not only makes it a value in today’s car market, but the absolute best value in the crossover SUV market–in which vehicles tend to start around the $25,000 range.
While the Dodge Journey will not see a full refresh until 2016, the 2015 model is getting a new, more impressive model option in the Crossroad package. It offers more aggressive, Durango-like styling and an abundance of standard interior features, such as leather seats and an 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen dash system.
Great for Miami Families
Families looking for an AWD seven-seater don’t have to upgrade to the full-size Durango to reach maximum capacity. The Journey offers an available option that allows your family to grow without having to upgrade vehicles. And with an overall 4-star safety NHTSA rating–with a 5-star crash rating– you don’t have to worry about safety.
Buy a Used Dodge Journey for Extra Value
New cars are obviously more thrilling, and no one can deny that the smell is a perk, but for today’s budget-conscience family used cars are a great way to save money and still own a great car.
The used car selection of today’s modern dealership will feature a lot of former leased, gently-used, low-mileage vehicles that have been regularly maintained and owned by only one adult owner. A used Dodge Journey, which new would still be a value, becomes the best used option in the crossover SUV market.
