Under the Journey's Hood
The new 2017 Dodge Journey is available with an all-wheel-drive system that works when you want it to.

This all-wheel-drive system can also be used on dry pavement in order to enhance handling during performance-style driving. The standard engine for the new Dodge Journey would be the 2.4-liter 16-valve DOHC four-cylinder engine that is able to produce up to 283 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft of torque. This engine option is coupled with a four-speed automatic transmission. There is also another engine option that is available on the SXT, Crosssroad, and Crossroad Plus which is the award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine that is able to produce up to 283 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft of torque. This engine is paired with a smooth-shifting six-speed automatic transmission.
