The 2018 Dodge Journey starts at $22,995 MSRP, and for this affordable price you get standard seating for five passengers, plenty of storage, a 2,500-pound towing capacity, and a host of safety features to keep everyone safe as you travel from Frankfort to New Lenox and beyond.

Protective Design

The Dodge Journey keeps all your passengers safe with a variety of features built into the design of the SUV.

  • It has dual-phase steel in specific areas of the framework, and there are specially designed front and rear crumple zones to absorb energy and redirect it in case of impact.
  • The driver and passenger have active front-seat head restraints to reduce the risk of head and spine injuries in the event of a rear-end collision.

The Journey also features seven airbags throughout the vehicle, including advanced multistage front airbags, supplemental side-curtain airbags, front seat-mounted side airbags, and a driver’s knee bolster airbag.

Advanced Braking and Handling

Not only is the Dodge Journey designed to give you peace of mind around Mokena, but it also offers advanced braking. The advanced braking includes:

  • Brake assist detects the rate at which the brakes are applied and increases power as needed to help you stop quicker and avoid a collision.
  • The standard four-channel anti-lock brake system allow for individual wheel braking when necessary by monitoring the speed of each wheel. This provides better control.
  • Electronic brake force distribution regulates front-to-back brake pressure to optimize your stopping distance, no matter the driving conditions.

When road conditions are icy or slippery, you can count on electronic stability control to monitor your steering and vehicle motional to help you maintain control. If you do start to lose control, electronic roll mitigation reduces engine power and automatically applies the brakes to prevent the wheels from lifting and possibly causing the SUV to rollover.

Reverse Driving

Driving backwards is challenging, especially when trying to maneuver an SUV. The Dodge Journey makes it easier with the ParkView® rear backup camera and ParkSense® rear park assist system. The camera displays what’s behind your vehicle, so you can be sure the area behind you is clear before backing up, and the ParkSense® system uses sensors in the rear bumper to detect objects behind your Journey to help you parallel park and back out of parking spots.
