Whether you're tackling the Sioux Falls winter or driving through Belle Fourche on your way to the national park, you need an SUV like the 2018 Dodge Journey, that won't be stopped in its tracks.

Adrenaline junkies in the Rapid City area will be pleased to see that the 2018 model is built for adventure, as you'll see in this review from Liberty Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram FIAT.

2018 Dodge Journey Powertrain

The 2018 Dodge Journey gives drivers two engine options, the 2.4L Tigershark® MultiAir®2 16-valve I-4 and the 3.6L Pentastar® V6.

The 2.4L engine comes with a front-wheel-drive (FWD) drivetrain and a 4-speed automatic transmission. It generates 173 horsepower and 166 lb-ft of torque.

If you want to turn everything up a notch, the 3.6L engine is available for all trims and can accommodate a FWD and all-wheel-drive (AWD) drivetrain. It generates 283 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. This engine comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Towing Capabilities

Whether you're taking the boat to Sheps Canyon, or helping a friend move, you'll be happy with how much strength the Journey can display.

With the torque capacities in the available engines, it's no surprise that the 2018 Dodge Journey can tow up to 2,500 pounds when properly equipped. That's a little more than the average weight of a pontoon boat.

The Journey also features a standard Trailer Sway Control that works with Electronic Stability Control to adjust the brakes or engine throttle to maintain stability while towing.  

Dodge Journey Exterior Features

Just because the Journey isn't afraid to play in the mud, doesn't mean it doesn't still have style to spare. In fact, drivers can make it their own with 10 different color options, including Granite Pearl, Olive Green, and White Noise.

This SUV comes with the recognizable Dodge crosshair grille, plus heated mirrors that fold down to make it easier to squeeze through tight spaces and narrow path ways.

Interior Conveniences

The 2018 Dodge Journey is a 3-row SUV, perfect for packing heavy or bringing the whole team along for the ride. It features a total of 67.6 cubic feet of cargo space with the second and third row folded down flat.

In addition to that space, this SUV hides extra storage, so you can make the most of every nook and cranny. The cargo area includes in-floor storage for smaller items and, if you want to keep your drinks frosty, the second row hides an in-floor cooler. Just add ice.

As for the look of things, drivers have a choice of five interior options, and can even add in available heated seats and a heated steering wheel.

And, if you're bringing along precious cargo, you'll find the Journey rather accommodating with the integrated booster seats that fold out of the second-row.
