Why Buy the 2018 Dodge Journey
With a reputation for remarkable affordability and ride quality since it debuted in the 2009 model year, the Dodge Journey has been a decent midsize crossover SUV choice. The 2018 version finds the vehicle reduced to four trims for a refinement of the type of standard features and options that the nameplate offers. The SUV is now available as an SE, SXT, Crossroad, and GT model.
Exterior – Reasons Why Buy the Dodge Journey
Standard exterior features on this midsize SUV include roof rails, automatic halogen quad headlights, power heated manual-folding side mirrors, and 17-inch steel wheels with covers. On the SXT, there are 17-inch alloy ones in place of the steel ones, fog lights for more penetrating illumination, and LEDs that replace the taillights’ halogen bulbs for brighter lighting and longer service. The wheels on the Crossroad are upgraded to larger, 19-inch hyper-black alloy ones, and the wheels on the GT are 19-inch painted alloys.

In previous iterations, a third row of seats was optional. Now it’s standard with the 2018 model year. As a result, you can set up to seven people in the vehicle. Passenger volume is measured at 123.7 cubic feet. The space between the third row and the liftgate is measured at 10.7 cubic feet. However, you can fold down the third-row seats to extend the cargo space to 37 cubic feet, or fold down both rows behind front seating for a maximum cargo space of 67.6 cubic feet. Notably, the second row can tilt and slide for easy access to the third row, and the third row can recline to add a certain level of comfortability. To get 6-way power adjustability and 4-way adjustable lumbar support on the driver’s seat, you will need to get to the Crossroad.
And for front-seat heating capability and leather trim with perforated panels, you will need to get the top-of-the-line GT. Standard comfort and convenience features include dual-zone climate control, proximity key access, a USB port and auxiliary audio jack for connecting up mobile devices, AM/FM radio, six-speaker audio, and Uconnect® infotainment integration with a 4.3-inch touchscreen. The SXT has its heating and cooling system upgraded to tri-zone climate control, which incorporates rear air conditioning. Climate control is automatic on the Crossroad, which also has auto-dimming ability on the rearview mirror to dim glare from headlights behind you, an 8.4-inch touchscreen that replaces the 4.3-inch, Bluetooth® wireless technology for hands-free phone calling and audio streaming, and a one-year complimentary subscription to SiriusXM® satellite radio. The GT is the only trim with remote start and a six-speaker 368-watt Alpine® audio system.
Mechanical / Powertrain – Request More Information
The standard engine on the SUV is the 2.4-liter inline 4-cylinder World engine, which generates 173 horsepower and 166 lb-ft of torque and is joined with a 4-speed automatic transmission. Designated as the high-performance model, the GT uses the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, which is tweaked to produce 283 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque and goes with a 6-speed automatic gearbox. You can choose between a front-wheel drivetrain and an all-wheel drivetrain. (The latter is preferred for enhanced traction ability.) A MacPherson strut front and a multi-link rear independent suspension is present for absorbing bumps and other sources of turbulence from the road. On the Crossroad trim, the suspension is tuned for a softer, more turbulence-free drive. This quality is optimized on the GT trim.
Safety – Why Buy with Safety Features
For restraint and cushioning in the event of a crash, this midsize crossover SUV has a driver’s knee airbag, dual front impact airbags, dual front seat-mounted side-impact airbags, and dual roof-mounted side-curtain airbags that flank all three rows. Other standard safety features on the vehicle include traction control to maximize tire grip with the road, electronic vehicle stability and roll mitigation for maintaining the intended driving path even during sudden maneuvers, high-beam daytime running lights to increase conspicuity, trailer sway damping for greater control of whatever you are pulling behind you, four-wheel disc brakes for shortening stopping distance, and an anti-lock braking system for preventing the wheels from locking up during hard stops. Combining the remote keyless entry capability with engine immobilization prevents unauthorized access and use, thus acting as the vehicle’s anti-theft mechanism. (A security alarm is added on the GT.)
