2019 Dodge Journey Performance

The Dodge Journey is not just a handsome SUV, but it’s also one that performs so good that a smooth ride on any road is guaranteed. It’s a massive machine, no doubt, but it’s also one that inspires confidence because of its sheer stability. If you like the older truck-based SUVs, you will be especially pleased with the 2019 model. A great suspension delivers a car-like driving experience, which is what the 2019 Dodge Journey is all about. JT’s Dodgeland of Columbia has put together all you need to know about the 2019 Dodge Journey’s performance.

Size and body
The 2019 Dodge Journey is big enough to be useful, but it’s not so humongous that it proves unmanageable. It’s a great SUV for family outings. If you are interested in off-road driving alone, you have the option of choosing the R/T model, which has a more responsive suspension.

Acceleration and power
The base model has a 2.4L 16-valve 4-cylinder engine and a 4-speed automatic transmission that together deliver 173 horsepower. The GT trim, on the other hand, boasts a standard V6 engine that generates 283 hp. The GT trim has a bonus – it’s surprisingly fuel-efficient. It is well respected and stands ahead of most SUVs in this category. You can expect this beauty to deliver 25 mpg on the highway and up to 500 miles on a single tank.

Handling and braking
A smooth ride and nothing less than that is what you can expect with the 2019 Dodge Journey. With a decent suspension that soaks up bumps, it makes for great off-road adventures. It’s one of the few vehicles that still sports hydraulic power steering – so if you are looking for a system with a pleasant weight and feel, look no further than the 2019 Dodge Journey.

Towing capacity
Going off on a long adventure and need to carry more? Moving home and need to tow a boat or your furniture? The 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine and trailer tow prep group can get you towing up to 2,500 pounds with ease. The standard trailer sway control with electronic stability control helps reduce sway and maintain stability.
