Dodge Journey

Today, Dodge is introducing the new 2011 Dodge Journey with a V-6 engine and a gorgeous new interior, featuring the latest in vehicle connectivity and costumization with the Chryster Group's new PowerNet electrical architecture.
Four Uconnect Touch models are available, with easy-to-use controls and user-friendly touch-key categories.
At 283 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft torque, the Journey handles well in all driving and road conditions.
By installing new, premium sound-deadening treatments and insulation throughout the vehicle, drivers will be treated to a smooth, quiet ride.
The interior has confortable new seats, a beautifully crafted one-pice instrument panel and a new EVIC is positioned in the center of the gauges. Integrated center stack bezels are more sculpted and the radius is softend leaving more room for the drivers knees. The heating and cooling outlets are also better functioning.
The center console gets a lot of extra cushion on the tilt-and-slide armrest, and there is a larger center storage bin with a 12-volt outlet and USB port. There is also a larger front storage bin with side nets, new multi-functioning three-spoke Dodge brand steering wheel integrated controls and a wider, longer, soft-touch armrest.
On the outside, the Journey maintains its sculpted, clean, aggressive lines, and adds a new front fascia that sports the signature Dodge Brand ,,split crosshair" honeycomb grille. The fog lamp bezels are bigger and bolder and new 19-inch wheels, a new, less angular rear fascia and "ring of fire" LED taillamps wrap it up from front to back.
Safety and security features, include: standard advanced multi-stage front passenger air bags, active head restraints, electronic stability control (ESC) with all-speed traction control, electronic roll mitigation and brake assist, new driver-side knee blocker air bag, supplemental side-curtain air bags covering all three rows, supplemental front-seat-mounted side air bags, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, LATCH child seat anchor system and trailer sway control.
The Dodge Journey is built in at Chrysler Group LLC's Toluca Assembly Plant in Toluca, Mexico. It will arrive in U.S. dealerships in fourth quarter of 2010
