8 Reasons You Should Buy a Dodge Journey

2016 Dodge Journey - Springfield, MO
For many reasons, the Journey is one of Dodge’s most versatile options.

Choosing the right vehicle can be a difficult decision. With so many models on the market vying for your dollar, every option may seem appealing. But, when it comes to quality, few cars follow through with their promises.

The Dodge Journey crossover doesn’t disappoint, though, and that’s one of the many reasons to buy one. Here are some others:

  1. Seating for seven: The Journey comfortably seats two more passengers than other crossovers which only seat five people.
  2. Cargo space: With its versatile interior layout, the Journey offers up to 67 cubic feet of storage room.
  3. Efficiency: For being a large vehicle, the Journey doesn’t use much fuel; it reaches up to 26 mpg on the highway.
  4. 500 miles per tank: Combining efficiency with capacity, the Journey can take you further than you thought possible on a single fill-up.
  5. V6 engine: If strength is important to you, the Journey can be outfitted with an available V6 engine.
  6. Hot tech: The latest Journey comes with loads of fun stuff, like a W-Fi Hotspot, Bluetooth, and satellite radio.
  7. Dodge brand: You know you’re getting a quality product because of the reputation behind the Dodge insignia.
  8. Low price: For all of this, the Journey starts at an incredibly low MSRP under $22,000.

Dodge Journey and Durango Win Active Lifestyle Vehicle of the Year Awards

Two Dodge vehicles stood out in the 11th annual Carspondent.com Active Lifestyle Vehicle of the Year awards competition, which every year invites hundreds of athletes and outdoor enthusiasts to evaluate and judge new vehicles.

The Dodge Journey was named the Best Value On-Road with its MSRP at or below $35,000, while the Durango was named Best Value Family.

Both the Dodge Journey and Durango have so much to give back to drivers that go along with their value. They provide the handling and power that you expect from a Dodge SUV while also providing a luxurious and comfortable interior for drivers and passengers alike.

Judging of the vehicles involved active, outdoor enthusiasts who went on ride-and-drive tests along with a small contingent of automotive journalists, which included a difficult off-road course and some on-road driving.

“The Dodge Durango [and] Dodge Journey … offer functionality and performance for any adventure, so they’re an ideal fit for customers with active lifestyles,” said Reid Bigland, Head of U.S. Sales, Chrysler. And luckily for you, both can be found at Corwin Dodge! Stop in today to get behind the wheel of one of the Active Lifestyle Vehicle of the Year award winners. You won’t regret it.

Dodge Durango and Journey Rock March Sales

Dodge’s March sales were able to reach great heights thanks to the Dodge Durango and Journey, two great staples in the Dodge lineup.

When it comes to March sales, Dodge’s poster child last month was no doubt the Durango, which posted its best March sales since 2005, perhaps still riding the wave of the extremely popular Ron Burgundy commercials. With sales up 22 percent compared to March 2013, the Durango succeeded in extending its streak of year-over-year sales gain to 17 months.

The Dodge Journey also showed great performance, with sales up 25 percent for the mid-size crossover’s best sales month ever. With enough room to comfortably seat up to seven and an award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 to carry them, the Journey is one of the most versatile and reliable mid-size crossover on the market.

In addition to the Dodge Durango and Journey, the Grand Caravan and Charger enjoyed significant success, with the former’s sales up 27 percent in March—the largest year-over-year percentage sales gain of any Chrysler Group vehicle that month—and with the latter’s sales up 15 percent, marking the Charger’s best March since 2007.
