The Journey Begins…

With the 2015 Dodge Journey, Dodge took a segment that, for some consumers, was either too big or too small and introduced this SUV with dimensions that fall somewhere in between.

Thanks to the optional third row of seats, ideal for children, along with the available booster seats already built-in, the 2015 Dodge Journey makes dropping the kids off at school or carpooling back and forth to sports practices, a quick and easy process.

Although the 2015 Dodge Journey is celebrated for its potential as an outstanding family vehicle, the style and refined interior of this SUV makes a professional statement as well. It’s easy to imagine a team of colleagues carpooling to their next meeting, business lunch, or joint venture in the 2015 Dodge Journey.

For the 2015 model year, you have seven trim levels to choose from, each one configured to accommodate either five or seven passengers. In addition to selecting from the seven trim levels, you’ll also need to consider which engine option will best meet your driving needs.

Standard power comes from the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, generating 173 horsepower and 166 lb.-ft. of torque, paired to a four-speed automatic transmission in front-wheel drive.

Higher trim levels have the option of a power boost from the 3.6-liter V6 engine, which can get 283 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, operated by a six-speed automatic. With this powertrain, front-wheel drive is standard; however, an all-wheel drive system is available.

Once you have a sense of your preferred powertrain, it’s time to choose the trim level, which will make both work and play easier and way more fun.

All trim levels come available in an stunning spectrum of exterior colors including: Fathom Blue Pearlcoat, Granite Crystal Metallic Clearcoat, Pearl White Tri-Coat, Pitch Black Clearcoat, Redline 2 Coat Pearl, White, and new for the 2015 model year, Billet Silver Metallic Clearcoat and Blue Streak Pearlcoat.
