What's Under the Hood


If you're striving for looks and fuel economy, the standard 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine is for you. Paired up with a four-speed automatic, it turns in 2015 EnerGuide fuel consumption numbers of 12.7 L/100km in the city and 9.1 L/100km on the highway, giving you big-time looks while keeping your fuel expenses small-time.

For those looking for power, the 2016 Dodge Journey offers an optional 3.6-litre Pentastar engine teamed with a six-speed automatic that cranks out 283 horsepower. It comes in both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive versions and produces numbers of 14.2 L/100km city and 9.4 L/100km highway in front-wheel drive. The all-wheel drive version turned in 14.5 L/100km city and 9.9 L/100km highway in EnerGuide tests. Edmunds called the Journey "…solid on the open highway, even over rough surfaces".


A Trim Level for Every Need

There are seven other models to choose from. The SE Plus ups the ante with seven-passenger seating, air conditioning with tri-zone climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and LED taillamps.
