September 16, 2009 , Frankfurt, Germany - The Dodge Journey redefines the crossover segment, offering five- and seven-passenger seating, safety and security, cargo flexibility and great all-weather driving capability. Add in its youthful, sporty look, fun-to-drive dynamics, innovative features and fuel-efficient powertrains, and Dodge Journey gives customers the complete value package.

With unique seating and best-in-class storage solutions, Dodge Journey is designed to meet the needs of many customers — ranging from young singles, couples and families with small children to mature families — who want the capability to do more. Newly designed from the ground up, Dodge Journey is a right-sized crossover that combines the versatility of a larger sport-utility vehicle with the fuel efficiency of a D-segment passenger car.

With the simple turn of a lever, Dodge Journey’s available 5+2-passenger-seating system quickly folds the Tilt ’n Slide™ second-row seat cushion upward and slides the entire seat forward, allowing third-row passengers easy in-and-out access. Two available integrated child booster seats quickly pull out from the second-row seat cushion, eliminating the need to transport bulky child seats. Spacious storage bins, including the Flip ’n Stow™ front-passenger seat concealed storage bin, Chill Zone™ glove box beverage cooler and second-row dual in-floor storage bins with removable liners are easy to reach.

In-vehicle technologies include Uconnect™ Navigation with a 30-gigabyte hard drive with voice commands, iPod® Control and hands-free Uconnect Phone. Rear-seat passengers will enjoy the available rear-seat entertainment system with a 22 cm (9-inch) screen, two wireless headphones and auxiliary input jack for personal electronics or game consoles.

Three fuel-efficient engine options power Dodge Journey: a powerful 2.0-liter turbo-diesel engine paired with a six-speed manual transmission or advanced six-speed Dual-clutch Transmission (DCT), a responsive 2.4-liter four-cylinder World Engine with four-speed automatic, and a flex-fuel 2.7-liter 24-valve V-6 engine with six-speed Auto Stick transmission.
