The exterior of the Dodge Journey SUV is not much changed, but the updated interior makes a huge difference in the sense of quality passengers notice as soon as they get inside. Instead of endless gray plastic, seats now sport pearl leather stitched with dark orange thread. Though it shows dirt easily, when you keep it clean, it is exceptionally attractive. Seven passengers sit comfortably in three rows of seats, though larger adults might prefer to avoid the third row.
Lots of storage options in the Dodge Journey SUV give room for cargo, with or without passengers, including second row in-floor storage bins the size of a large cooler. Another in-floor bin in the rear is a great spot to store valuables, as it keeps them covered and latches securely. When all of the seats are folded enjoy 67.6 cubic feet of cargo space. A variety of passenger/cargo combinations will suit any hauling or traveling situation.
The single-piece instrument panel is made of soft-touch materials, reducing cabin noise for a quieter ride. A large 8.5 inch touchscreen control panel offers clear graphics, and it responds with speed to your commands, and the controls are intuitive and easy to understand.
There are four trim levels available at ascending prices, including the AVP/SE, the SXT, the Crew, and the R/T. All models include Keyless Enter'n Go, air conditioning with Dual-Zone Manual Temperature Control, tilt/telescoping steering wheel with integrated cruise and audio controls, and power locks, mirrors, and windows. Move up to the SXT for fog lamps, folding power mirrors that are heated, as well as Uconnect Touch stereo that has a CD player, MP3 capability, and SiriusXM Satellite Radio with a one-year subscription.
