What's the Best 2017 Dodge Journey Trim Level for Me?
Posted on March 9, 2020
We like all the cars and trucks we offer at Caledon Chrysler, however, we absolutely love the 2017 Dodge Journey. It's everything you could want in an SUV: durable, powerful, roomy, and affordable. It seats up to seven passengers and features a Best-In-Class storage system that has to be seen to be believed. One of the best parts of the 2017 Dodge Journey is its versatility. Because we all have different needs and lifestyles, the experts at Dodge created the SUV in six unique trim levels as well as AWD and FWD. While we can't go over all the trims and their benefits, we thought we'd take a quick look at the basics of the 2017 Dodge Journey and a few of the trims that might just meet your exact needs.
When you look under the hood of the 2017 Dodge Journey, you will find a standard 2.4-liter DOHC 16V I-4 engine with Dual VVT that produces 173 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 166 lb.-ft. of torque. If you need even more power, you can step up to the available 3.6-liter DOHC Pentastar VVT V-6 engine that generates 283 horsepower at 6,350 rpm and 260 lb.-ft. of torque at 4400 rpm. This powerful SUV comes with either an Autostick four-speed transmission or a six-speed shiftable automatic transmission, which gives drivers up to 12.7 L/100 km city and 9.2 L/100 km highway fuel efficiency. All trim levels feature a dual-phase steel body with specifically placed crumple zones and a seven-airbag system that includes multistage front airbags, supplemental side-curtain airbags, front seat-mounted side airbags, and a driver's knee airbag.
Trims You Might Like
While there are six to choose from, we thought we'd focus on three that sum up what you can expect from the 2017 Dodge Journey.
- The Canada Value Package
Exclusive to our market, the 2017 Dodge Journey Canada Value Package is an amazing combination of cost-effectiveness and performance. With an attractive price point, this trim comes standard with the 2.4-liter DOHC 16V I-4 engine, FWD, Radio 4.3 AM/FM/CD multimedia centre with a 4.3-inch touchscreen and six speakers, and a choice of eight exterior colours. You also get Electronic Stability Control with All-Speed Traction Control, Electronic Roll Mitigation, Trailer Sway Control, and an Electronic Vehicle Information Centre.
As you step up to the GT trim level, you start to get some of features that are either optional or unavailable on lower levels. You'll notice the 19-inch Tech Silver aluminum wheels and the 225/55R19 BSW all-season touring tires. There's standard all-wheel drive as well as Park-Sense Rear Park Assist and nine available exterior colours. You'll stay connected and entertained thanks to the Media Centre with Hands-free communication, Bluetooth streaming audio, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, six premium speakers with subwoofer and a 368-watt amplifier, and SiriusXM satellite radio with a one-year subscription.
- Crossroad AWD
Finally, we come to the exclusive 2017 Dodge Journey Crossroad AWD. As the name explains, this trim offers AWD standard that goes well with the Performance suspension and the 19-inch Hyper Black aluminum wheels. This trim is stunning to witness in person thanks to the Black headlamp and tail lamp bezel, Liquid Graphite interior accents, Platinum Chrome insert on front and rear fascia, and Premium door trim panel with Light Grey accent stitching.
