In the increasingly popular crossover SUV segment, the 2014 Dodge Journey is one of the few examples that still offer a smooth and powerful V6 along with the option of all-wheel drive. For families who regularly go on road trips, haul a good amount of gear, or tow a trailer, the added power and durability of a dedicated V6 engine are a welcome option.
Starting with the AVP (American Value Package) trim level, the Journey gets some great standard features like heated mirrors, keyless entry and engine ignition, dual-zone climate control, cruise control, 6-way adjustable driver’s seat with a tilt/telescopic steering wheel, sliding and reclining second row seating, auxiliary input audio jack, iPod/USB audio jack, a 4.3-inch touchscreen infotainment center, and a six-speaker stereo system.
The SE trim level adds roof rails for easy cargo hauling, brighter and more modern LED taillights, and tinted glass on top of those included with AVP models. The SXT trim goes one step further, adding integrated fog lights, unique front and rear fascias, satellite radio, 17-inch alloy wheels, and a net and cover for the rear cargo area. The AVP, SE, and SXT models all come standard with a 2.4-Liter four-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive but the 3.6-Liter V6 and AWD is available on SXT trims.
Limited models get the even more features, including a standard 3.6-Liter V6 with 283 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque which returns up to 25 mpg. Also included are 19-inch alloy wheels, auto on/off headlights, remote start, leather seating, heated front seats and a heated steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 6-way power adjustable driver’s seat, Bluetooth connectivity, a larger 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment center, an auto dimming mirror, and more.
The R/T model adds 19-inch wheels, sport-tuned suspension, perforated leather seating in black with red accents, and premium audio while removing the roof-rails. There are also a number of available features for all trim levels like a sunroof, three-zone automatic climate control, and more.
