It comes with the 3.6-litre Pentastar V6, 19 inch alloy wheels, tuned suspension, 8.4-in touchscreen, dual-zone automatic climate control, remote start and heated front seats. It’s a feature packed vehicle that punches way above its weight in terms of quality and versatility.
This specific car also has push button start and remote start system, heated steering wheel, leather wrapped steering wheel with audio mounted controls, Bluetooth, cruise control, USB port, auxiliary outlet, front one-touch power windows and a lot more besides.
The design of the 2013 Dodge Journey improved a lot over previous models. Having experienced a steady redesign and improvement since launch, the Journey has turned into a solidly dependable crossover that looks the part. It has an upright stature with few of the fripperies of other marques yet delivered where it counts.
The 2013 Dodge Journey is a good looking vehicle, especially in this orange colour. It stands out from the crowd for all the right reasons. The design is angular and no-nonsense and makes the ideal family hauler or weekend vehicle. It can carry, tow, haul and go pretty much anywhere.
Inside, the cabin is very light and spacious and offers more passenger space than you might think. Up front, technology is obvious thanks to the large touchscreen and the heated front seats are ideal for cold winters.
Under that smooth hood is the 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 that produces 283 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque and uses a six speed automatic transmission to apply power. It’s a smooth combination that has enough torque for most situations and can tow reasonable loads with ease. The suspension was revised the previous model year so this is a smooth and competent car now. It doesn’t roll in corners and can handle rough terrain and potholes with ease.
The 2013 Dodge Journey Crew comes with stability control, 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes and seven airbags (front, front side, driver knee, and full-length side curtain), backup camera and parking sensors. It’s a decent range of safety tech for what is a very viable option for all kinds of lifestyles.
