Auburn Hills, Mich. September 2, 2014 The 2015 Dodge Journey – America’s most affordable and most versatile crossover – set several sales records this past model year. Looking to build on this momentum in the marketplace, the Journey Crossroad model will continue on for 2015. Positioned between the SXT and Limited models, the Journey Crossroad features a rugged exterior appearance and unique leather interior seating and trim, starting at a starting U.S. manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $24,995.
 
Also new for 2015 is the addition of five years of free service for SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link with the Uconnect 8.4-inch touchscreen, where available on Journey models. Dodge Journey models offering SiriusXM Radio have one year of free service.
 
The 2015 Dodge Journey Crossroad features distinctive front and rear fascias with Platinum Chrome accents, Platinum Chrome side sills, Platinum Chrome roof rails and unique 19-inch Hyper Black aluminum wheels, giving the available three-row, seven-passenger crossover a rugged, capable look. The interior is loaded with premium finishes and features including standard leather seating with sport mesh inserts, Liquid Graphite appliques, an 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen and a power driver’s seat and passenger fold flat seat with in-seat storage.
 
The available award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine delivers a best-in-class 283 horsepower, and Journey continues to deliver the latest and greatest in vehicle connectivity and customization with the Chrysler Group’s Uconnect 8.4 infotainment system. Featuring an 8.4-inch touchscreen, standard keyless “Enter n’ Go” with push-button start and available heated steering wheel, Dodge Journey offers a slew of high-tech features at a price that is still affordable to families. With best-in-class storage space, available fold-flat seats, second-row in-floor storage and front-passenger “Flip-N-Stow” in-seat storage, the Journey is a true utility infielder.
 
Journey Crossroad is also available with all-wheel-drive (AWD), featuring an on-demand system that provides added traction when needed, and enhanced fuel economy when not.
 
The 2015 Dodge Journey is available in American Value Package (AVP), SE, SXT, Crossroad, Limited and R/T trim levels, and is America’s most affordable crossover with a starting U.S MSRP of $19,995 (excluding $995 destination).
 
Power and efficiency
The Journey AVP, SE, SXT and Crossroad are powered by a standard 2.4-liter 16-valve DOHC four-cylinder engine, which produces 173 horsepower and 166 lb.-ft. of torque, linked to a four-speed automatic transmission. This four-cylinder engine delivers 26 miles per gallon (mpg) on the highway.
 
The award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine, optional on SXT and Crossroad and standard on Limited and R/T models and all-wheel drive (AWD) models, produces a best-in-class 283 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque and is mated to a smooth-shifting six-speed automatic transmission. This Pentastar V-6 engine has been recognized as one of “Ward’s 10 Best Engines” for three years in a row. In addition to excellent power, it delivers up to 25 mpg on the highway.
 
With a five-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty, owners can rest assured knowing their powerful and efficient Journey is well covered.
 
A work in craftsmanship and attention to detail
Dodge Journey offers levels of refinement not typically found in the crossover market. A beautifully crafted one-piece soft-touch instrument panel sets the tone. A standard Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) is positioned in the center of the gauge cluster, which has a full-color display backlit in Dodge red lights, giving it a soft glow unlike any in the segment. Integrated center stack bezels are sculpted, and designers softened the radius to make more room for the driver’s knees. The cushioned center console armrest lifts to reveal a larger center storage bin with a 12-volt outlet and USB port where owners can hook up their MP3/iPod charging connections and hide them out of sight.
 
The design team also worked to make the Journey’s interior very comfortable. There’s a large front storage bin with side nets and a multi-function three-spoke steering wheel with standard integrated cruise and radio controls.
 
Engineers also developed many treatments to reduce noise, vibration and harshness. One example is the Journey’s dual dash silencer, which isolates the cabin, making for a nice, quiet ride.
 
The interior isn’t just a nice place to be, it also offers best-in-class utility. Second-row and available third-row seats fold flat to create 67.6 cu. ft. of cargo space. Second-row seats recline and have available class-exclusive integrated child booster seats. Available third-row seating is a popular option that is available on all trim levels and not offered on most of Journey’s competitors. There are also innovative removable storage bins in the floor ahead of the second-row seats, which can hold everything from muddy clothes to soda cans, and conceal valuables like a camera, laptop or purse. With fold-flat front passenger, second-row and third-row seats, second-row in-floor storage, and front passenger in-seat storage, Dodge Journey has best-in-class storage.
 
Journey also offers many standard features not commonly found in the segment, such as a standard 4.3-inch Uconnect touchscreen radio, power heated and fold-away mirrors, seven air bags, dual-zone climate control, illuminated cup holders, keyless Enter ‘n Go with push-button start, steering wheel mounted audio and cruise controls and the class-exclusive second-row in-floor storage bins.
 
Owners will feel like they have the world at their fingertips with the Journey’s Uconnect touchscreen command center. From navigation to voice-command music selections to the ability to check fuel prices, the Uconnect media center makes life in the Journey an excellent adventure for the driver and passengers. Four Uconnect models are available, all featuring easy-to-use controls and class-leading technology. With its touchscreen display and user-friendly, touch-key categories, connecting and controlling personal devices is simple, intuitive and customizable.
 
Safety is paramount
Multistage front passenger air bags, active head restraints, electronic stability control with all-speed traction control, electronic roll mitigation and Brake Assist, driver-side knee blocker air bag, side-curtain air bags covering all three rows, front seat-mounted side air bags, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, LATCH child seat anchor system and trailer-sway control are standard on all Dodge Journey models.
 
Confidence in any condition
The 2015 Dodge Journey’s chassis architecture delivers a confidence-inspiring driving experience coupled with precise steering for maximum control. Strong torsional stiffness in the steering column intermediate shaft isolator, in conjunction with Journey’s rear suspension geometry, delivers precise steering feel and a connected steering response. R/T’s more aggressive suspension tuning gives a sportier ride and even greater handling precision for when the roads turn twisty.
 
Dodge Journey also offers all-wheel-drive capability, perfect for drivers who want some extra grip for a more performance feel, or who live in the Snow Belt or rainy parts of the country and appreciate the extra traction Journey’s all-wheel-drive system provides. Journey’s all-wheel-drive system works on demand, driving only the front wheels until power to the rear wheels is needed to maximize fuel efficiency. All-wheel drive also is used on dry pavement between speeds of 25 and 65 mph to enhance handling during performance driving. This system provides added traction on snow, ice and other low traction surfaces without having to be switched on and off.
 
When traveling faster than 25 mph, Dodge Journey’s all-wheel-drive system sends torque to the rear wheels when cornering with the throttle open to make the car turn more easily, which makes the handling more neutral. This is more readily accomplished with Journey’s electronically controlled coupling (ECC) than with viscous-coupling or gerotor systems that require some degree of front-to-rear slip before torque is transferred to the rear wheels. At speeds greater than 53 mph, the control
strategy provides minimal torque to the rear wheels under normal driving conditions to provide better fuel economy.
 
Dodge Journey features standard electronic stability control (ESC) and all-speed traction control, which help keep the crossover on path in a variety of road surface and weather conditions. Journey’s available all-wheel drive electronic control module works with the ESC and traction control systems, allowing the ESC system to use the ECC to help gain control of the vehicle, reducing the amount of torque that the ECC transmits to the rear wheels. Four-wheel anti-lock brakes and electronic-roll mitigation also are standard on all 2015 Dodge Journey models.

A family mover with style
On the outside, Journey maintains its sculpted, clean, aggressive lines and front fascia that sports the signature Dodge brand “split crosshair” grille. Journey SXT, Crossroad, Limited and R/T models feature a more aggressive lower front fascia and a rear fascia with integrated, dual bright exhaust tips (V-6 only). Crossroad also offers completely unique front and rear lower fascias. Bold “ring of fire” LED tail lamps (SE, SXT, Crossroad Limited and R/T models) have a distinctive style out back, while 19-inch aluminum wheels, standard on Crossroad, Limited and R/T, provide a dramatic styling statement.

The 2015 AVP model includes 17-inch wheels and tires, a fuel-efficient 2.4-liter 16-valve four-cylinder, automatic transmission, dual-zone air conditioning, electronic stability control (ESC), Brake Assist, all-speed traction control, anti-lock brakes (ABS), seven air bags (dual-front, side and full-length side curtain airbags and driver’s knee airbag), active front head restraints, 4.3-inch touchscreen Uconnect Media Center, Keyless Enter ‘n Go with push-button start, premium soft-touch surfaces, power windows, power locks, power heated mirrors, remote keyless entry, tilt-and-telescoping steering column, a remote USB port and auxiliary input jack and a tire-pressure monitoring display.
