Under the Journey's Hood
You can get in the SUV easily due to keyless Enter 'n Go, then power it up easily through push-button start. Towing up to 1,000 pounds worth of equipment behind this SUV is possible. The 2016 Journey's great Pentastar V-6 engine can provide you with a maximum of 283 horsepower. You will have either a four- or six-speed automatic transmission. City and highway ranges in miles for a single tank of fuel are 389.5 and 533.0, respectively, and the Journey's fuel tank will hold over 20 gallons of regular gas. Front-wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel drive may be used when necessary so you may receive great fuel efficiency from the SUV, and the all-wheel drive can be used on dry surfaces for the best handling possible when driving between 25 and 65 miles per hour (mph).
Design of Dodge Journey
You will see Dodge brand's "split crosshair" grille on the SUV's exterior, and you'll probably have 17-inch wheels, but 19-inch Hyper Black wheels make themselves available for the Crossroad with Platinum Chrome accents for the front and back fascias, lower side sills, dark-tinted headlamps, tail lamps and a roof rack. Up to seven people can fit inside the Journey. The SUV will do plenty for every passenger and its driver while giving everybody a calm ride because of its dual dash silencer. The SUV has an external temperature display, and each Crossroad Journey has a Uconnect touchscreen. While driving the Journey, the driver won't feel cramped as there is plenty of available knee space. A powered driver's seat in the Journey will make it easy for a driver to adjust their seat to be comfortable.
Does the SUV come with a rear center three-point belt?
Yes, so the passenger in that seat will have the same type of belt as all other passengers.
Journey makers see it important that their vehicles offer a plethora of safety features for the passengers and driver. If you would want to tow equipment behind this SUV, trailer-sway control can control the trailer's movement to create a safe trip for people in and behind the vehicle. The SUV's anti lock brakes (ABS) will assist you when braking should happen. For kids you will have a LATCH child seat anchor system. Airbags could serve as essential features, and you'll have side-curtain, front-seat mounted, multi-stage and driver knee blocker airbags to help those in a crash. You'll have electronic roll mitigation and head restraints. We're looking forward to talking with you about the really cool SUV!
