5 reasons to buy the 2017 Dodge Journey

1. Balanced performance

If you opt for a V6-powered 2017 Dodge Journey, you might be surprised that you aren't losing highway miles between visits to the pump. A 2017 Dodge Journey FWD with the 3.6L V6 engine achieves an EPA-estimated 25 mpg highway fuel economy.

Combined with the EPA-estimated 17 mpg city, a V6-equipped 2017 Dodge Journey should average 19 mpg.
The Journey balances performance with fuel economy, making it a good choice if you're looking for the best of both worlds.

2. Easy-to-learn technology

Learning a new infotainment system doesn't have to be frustrating. Thanks to the Journey's simple layout and responsiveness, you should find the Uconnect® system fast and easy to use. Look for a 2017 Dodge Journey Crossroads Plus or GT trim for the feature-packed Uconnect 8.4, with a larger touchscreen, Bluetooth® audio streaming, and an in-dash DVD player. An available rear-seat video package adds a nine-inch overhead screen to Crossroad Plus and GT trims, giving your passengers a show while they enjoy the ride.

3. Peppy SUV performance

Make highway driving and passing a breeze when you pick a 2017 Dodge Journey equipped with the V6 engine. Making an impressive 285 hp and paired with a snappy six-speed automatic transmission, all that power, along with the tuned suspension, help keep the Dodge Journey composed and confident. You can even do some light towing. A 2017 Dodge Journey GT with a V6 engine can tow up to an estimated 2,500 pounds when properly equipped.

4. All-weather capability

If you live in places where it snows, or you frequent gravel roads, consider a 2017 Dodge Journey with AWD. AWD is optional on all trims or standard in GT trim. AWD provides confidence in poor road conditions by keeping engine power only to the wheels with traction. It can also take some of the stress out of a snowy drive or keep you moving when you take the path less traveled to your next adventure.

5. A function-focused interior

A family or group needs a vehicle that flexes and adapts to everyday challenges, which a 2017 Dodge Journey does well. Dodge packs the Journey with places to store your stuff, including in-floor storage bins, a deep center console, plenty of cup holders, and up to 67.6 cu-ft of cargo volume behind the front row seats. There's even an available storage bin under the front passenger seat cushion, ideal for small items you need to store out of sight.
