2011 Dodge Journey Sport Utility Crossover
Benefits of Driving a 2011 Dodge Journey Sport Utility Crossover
Dodge hoped to elevate the standing of the Journey in the market with 2011's freshened model and with available all-wheel drive, a powerful new V6 engine and sportier suspension feel all included in this year's update, they've made it even more competitive in a market dominated by the Honda Pilot, Ford Flex, Chevrolet Traverse, Mazda CX-9 and Toyota Highlander.
What's new for 2011?
For 2011, the Dodge Journey has been substantially changed. Revised exterior styling includes a new front fascia and larger fog lamp bezels, as well as new 19-inch wheels. Underneath, the suspension has been completely redesigned, with all-new geometry, a new steering setup and better tires--all of which combine to make for a much more solid and precise feel behind the wheel. Chrysler's Pentastar 3.6L V6 has been added to the line, replacing last year's 3.5L V6, making a full 283 horsepower. Inside, the Journey's interior has been revamped, with new materials and updated gauges based on the company's PowerNet electrical architecture, which allows for the addition of a new optional touchscreen central command center known as UConnect Touch.
