2013 Dodge Journey – Designed for the Family
When purchasing a new or used vehicle there are different reasons why we select a particular make or model. It usually comes down to cost, need, and efficiency. We think about and research what is it going to cost me? How long will I drive it? What will the warranty cover and for how long? How much space will I have for passengers or cargo, and the most asked question of all, how far can I travel on a gallon of gas?
The 2013 Dodge Journey is the answer to all of these questions. With five models to choose from each is priced to meet the budget of a variety of families. Starting with the Journey AVP to the classier RT model each is available with 7 seats that are designed to carry the kids to soccer, baseball, or football, and then take that family vacation to the beach. Lay down the two rows behind the driver’s seat for a very large cargo area with 67.6 cubic feet of space to carry everything including the kitchen sink and if more room is needed extra space is available by utilizing the popular in-floor storage in the second row seats or leave the second row of seats up for the kids or friends and utilize the rear storage area by lowering the back row of seats with plenty of room for luggage and coolers. Did I mention the extra leg room for all passengers? When large items need to be transported that will not fit in the cargo space such as Christmas trees, an available overhead rack can be added to utilize the top of the vehicle.
The exterior of the 2013 Dodge Journey is as impressive and functional as the interior. Starting with a distinctive front grill that is designed for maximum airflow to the engine, it gives an impression of movement at all times. With stylish headlamps that activate with darkness and fog lamps to penetrate the thickest fog to bright LED tail lamps that literally glow, you will be able to see and be seen in the most adverse driving conditions. For that stylish look as well as road safety 17 and 19 inch aluminum wheels in four stylish options are available to handle the rough as well as the smooth surfaces that are encountered on a daily basis.
Today’s crowded city streets, freeways and high speed interstate highways demand an engine that is sturdy and fuel efficient. One that provides peak power when needed in stop and go driving, runs smooth and quite while at the same time gets up to 26 MPG on the highway. Standard in the AVP and SE models is the 2.4L four-cylinder engine. Providing 173 horsepower for that quick acceleration and smooth driving just described and featuring Variable Valve Timing (VVT). Did I forget to mention 500 miles plus on a tank of gas? That should get your attention. An upgrade in the SXT and standard in the Crew and R/T models is the powerful 3.6L Pentastar® V6 with 283 horsepower and VVT Timing and with an exhaust system to maximize power and provide more efficiency it will deliver outstanding performance while at the same time get 25 MPG highway.
In addition to these great features the Crew is available with an All-Wheel-Drive to provide more traction to the wheels that have less traction due to slippage on wet or icy surfaces. This keeps every tire moving forward while adding control to the vehicle. It will automatically engage when needed and disengage at the proper time and with available Electronic Stability Control on all models to help restore directional control using the correct combination of breaking and throttle.
