Powertrains and Efficiency
Medicine Hat and Lethbridge drivers are free to customize their own level of power and efficiency thanks to the 2016 Dodge Journey’s range of powertrain options.
Standard Power: Entry-level machines are fitted with 2.4L I-4 engines, which put 173 horsepower and 166 lb-ft of torque under your control for responsive acceleration and capable cruising. Mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission system, the 2.4L makes 12.7 L/100km in the city and 9.1 on the highway.
Available Power: The optional 3.6L Pentastar V6 is a three time winner of Ward’s ’10 Best Engines’ list, and is able to generate an impressive 283 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. 6-speed automatic transmission ensures 14.2 in the city and 10.4 on the highway.
Interior Space and Design
The 2016 Dodge Journey provides a versatile cabin which can carry up to seven passengers in comfort or up to 1,914 L (67.6 cu ft) of cargo with the seats folded flat. It also provides several innovative storage areas, including:
Class-Exclusive Second Row Storage Bins: With enough space to carry up to a dozen 355-ml cans with ice – and a removable liner for convenient cleaning.
Flip ‘n Stow In-Seat Storage: Concealed beneath the front passenger seat, this handy storage solution allows Medicine Hat and Lethbridge drivers to store valuable items out of sight.
Even standard 2016 Dodge Journey models come fitted with a Keyless Enter ‘n Go system and front dual-zone air conditioning, while available trims and options ensure that you can personalise your Journey into your own perfect crossover.
