2017 Dodge Journey Overview (See Available Styles)

  • Seats 5 or 7 passengers
  • New GT trim replaces the R/T
  • Available Uconnect multimedia system with an 8.4-inch touchscreen
The 2017 Dodge Journey is a mid-size SUV that seats up to 7 passengers across 3 rows. It competes with the Ford Edge, Nissan Murano, and Toyota Highlander. This year, a new GT trim replaces the top-end R/T. The GT trim comes with leather seats with red accent stitching, a heated steering wheel, a premium audio system, a monochromatic exterior, and 19-inch Satin Carbon aluminum wheels.

Five trims are available: the SE, SXT, Crossroad, Crossroad Plus, and GT.

Overall, the Journey crossover has sculpted, sleek lines that give it a muscular look. Prominently displayed is the bold, crosshair front grille between a pair of parallelogram headlights. With higher trim levels, the front fascia becomes more and more aggressive. Standard features include power/heated door mirrors and 17-inch steel wheels. Body-color trim and a dual pipe exhaust system are also available. An available Blacktop Package includes black roof rails, gloss black side mirrors, grille, fascia, and 19-inch aluminum wheels. 

Under the hood, the Journey has two engine options and is powered by a standard 173-hp, 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive (FWD). A more powerful 283-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 mated to a 6-speed automatic and all-wheel drive (AWD) is optional. Fuel economy for the Journey 4-cylinder is an EPA-estimated 19/25 mpg city/highway. It lowers to a 16/24 mpg rating for the V-6/AWD models.

Inside, the Journey has black cloth cabin with a 60/40 split-folding second-row seat for standard 5-passenger seating. A 50/50 split-folding third-row seat can be added for total of 7 passengers. With the rear seats folded down, the Journey has a maximum cargo capacity of 67.6 cubic feet. The center stack features a standard Uconnect multimedia system that includes a 4.3-inch touchscreen, CD/MP3 playback, and a USB port. It can be upgraded to an 8.4-inch touchscreen, an integrated navigation system, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, a DVD entertainment system, and a premium audio system. Standard features include air conditioning, power windows/locks, and remote keyless entry. Available features include leather upholstery, tri-zone automatic climate control, remote vehicle start, a heated steering wheel, an automatic dimming rearview mirror, 9-inch second-row display screen, and a power moonroof.

Standard safety features include front airbags, antilock brakes, an electronic stability system, trailer sway control, and a tire pressure monitoring system. A backup camera and rear park assist are available as well.
