Design of Dodge Journey
This year's lineup has seen a reduction in trim lines down to 5 offerings all of which have lower base prices than the previous model years. The 2016 Dodge Journey's cabin is available in a 2-row, 5-passenger setup or as a 3-row, 7-passenger setup. Passenger space for adults is spacious up front and good in the second and third rows. A very popular feature in the cabin is the Uconnect infotainment center with an easy to use touch screen. The interior of the vehicle is actually quite simple yet luxuriously spacious including many spots for toys, small items and accessories. The back seats fold down flat and there is additional room under the rear part of the cargo floor. The layout is basic with large dials and knobs but there is enough instrument illumination against a dark background for the entire inside makeup to seem very welcoming. Efforts to reduce stress causing noise and disturbances have been made which includes implementation of a dual dash silencer. Other features which are standard across the models are fold away heated mirrors, climate controls, push button start, keyless entry, touchscreen display and Uconnect technology. The exterior of the Dodge Journey showcases a "split crosshair" grille design accentuating a clean and sculpted outside setup with detailed front paneling and line design that is bold and firm. All of this year's models have been reduced in price which makes the Dodge Journey the most affordable American crossover with the ability to hold seven people.
