2019 Dodge Journey
2019 Dodge Journey
The 2019 Dodge Journey puts you in a family-friendly, rugged SUV at a price that’s literally unbeatable.
What’s new for the 2019 Dodge Journey?
This year, the SXT drops out of the Journey trim lineup. This means that the entry-level SE trim picks up a few new standard features.
There’s a brand new Destroyer Gray paint scheme on offer to give this crossover some serious attitude. And, when your new Journey is equipped with the optional 283-horsepower V6 engine, you can even add new front and rear exterior bodywork. Speaking of the V6 engine, this powerhouse is available this year on more trim levels than ever before.
Which trim level should I choose?
The 2019 Dodge Journey has three trims on offer: the entry-level SE, midgrade Crossroad, and high-end GT. Each has its own set of attractions.
Get the SE because you want one of the most affordable three-row SUVs in existence. The entry-level Journey even beats out the budget-friendly Kia Sorento with its starting price of $22,995. You don’t have to worry about lacking any of the basics because the SE is loaded with modern conveniences. That means keyless ignition and entry and a handy rearview camera to help you get through a busy day of driving.
For some comfort extras and a little extra pizzazz, go with the Journey Crossroad. Its leather upholstery and three-zone climate control with rear-seat vents set you up for one heck of a road trip. At the top of the trim hierarchy, there’s the Journey GT. This baby is optioned with just about everything the Journey has to offer, including infotainment upgrades and a sunroof. The GT even bolsters performance. It’s the only trim that comes standard with the more powerful V6 engine and sportier suspension.
Which Dodge Journey is the seven-seater?
Each of these SUVs comes standard with seven seats-two in the front and rear rows and three in the center. Whether you’re transporting your big family or your adult basketball club, the Journey is spacious and accommodating.
How much can the 2019 Dodge Journey tow?
This three-row SUV will definitely string a Jet Ski or a few dirt bikes along for the ride. Max ratings depend upon which engine you select, however. The base four-cylinder engine can tow up to 1,000 pounds. To attach a pair of Jet Skis, you’ll probably need the V6 engine, which boosts towing capabilities to 2,500 pounds max.
How much cargo room does the 2019 Dodge Journey offer?
Behind the rear seats, the 2019 Dodge Journey has 10.7 cubic feet. Most midsize SUVs have more. But where the Journey shines is when you fold down the third row to make up to 37 cubic feet or fold down the second row to get the maximum 67.6 cubic feet of space. When you do that, the Journey leaves you with a nice flat loading surface.
