New 2016 Dodge Journey at Chuck Patterson for Chico, CA
Larger families may find that the 2016 Dodge Journey suits their needs without the thirst for fuel and sheer on-the-road bulk of larger seven-seat mid-size crossovers like the Toyota Highlander or the much longer Nissan Pathfinder. On the other hand, the Journey is missing some of the active-safety items that some families might not be keeping in mind when shopping. Dodge has shaken off the same-as-the-other-guy sheetmetal that clothes most crossovers, giving the Journey lines that are refreshingly different, even if they're no longer necessarily fresh.
Under the Journey's Hood
Current engine line-up will remain for now and it is expected to be changed not before some mid-cycle refreshment. For 2016 Dodge Journey there will be two engines offered. The base model will use 2.4 liter I4 engine, which outputs 173 hp and has average fuel consumption around 19/26 mpg. The more powerful version will be powered with 3.6 liter V6 Pentastar engine with 283 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. Average fuel consumption for this variant is 17 mpg city and 25 mpg in highway drive. It seems that first few year models will use current 4-speed transmission, while new gearbox is expected to come in next few years. Second-generation model will be probably available with manual transmission too.
Design of Dodge Journey
There have been serious talks of a remodeled interior specification for 2016 Dodge Journey. As the specification clearly states this car as a family car, so one can really expect a lot of passenger as well as cargo space. In addition to that, you can also expect a modified cabin with lots of in dash improvements. This pretty much sums up the interior specs. The Journey offers a fold-flat front passenger seat that will allow loading items up to nine feet long. It features some unique storage solutions that owners should find useful. Among them: a bin under the front passenger seat, storage under the floor in the second row and behind the last row of seats, a dual glove box with Dodge's Chill Zone that cools soda cans, and all the usual cubbies up front, including a fairly deep center console.
