SUV with decent MPG

by Grrrowlgurl from Greenville SC | December 17, 2019

The SUV was a great purchase for our growing family. We can now transport more people and more stuff. The third row stow and go seating is perhaps he best feature.

Great family car

by Family fun from Danbury, CT | November 12, 2019

With seven seats this car is great. We can take all the kids or fold the rear seats and have a lot of cargo space. Smooth and silent. Perfect!

2017 Dodge Journey Overview


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.
