2014 Dodge JourneyWhat’s New for the 2014 Dodge Journey

There are only minor trim level updates for the 2014 Dodge Journey.

2014 Dodge Journey Exterior

With a sturdy body and a minimalistic, masculine grille, the 2014 Dodge Journey is the macho man of crossover SUVs. The sculpted lines and rugged accents create a hard silhouette, while the available Ring of Fire LED tail lamps add a touch of Johnny Cash-brashness, making the Journey perfect for any adventure, whether it’s with your family or with your pals.

2014 Dodge Journey Performance

The standard powertrain for three of the five trim levels—AVP, SE, and SXT—is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that churns out 173 horsepower and 166 lb-ft of torque. A standard four-speed automatic sends power to the front wheels.
For the Limited and R/T models, a 3.6-liter V6 is the ticket, producing a healthy and significantly more powerful 283 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. With this engine comes a six-speed automatic and standard front-wheel-drive, though all-wheel-drive is optional. This is also an optional powertrain on the SXT.

2014 Dodge Journey Efficiency

According to the EPA, the four-cylinder is rated at 21 mpg combined, while the V6 gets a bit less at 19 combined.

2014 Dodge Journey Interior

A simplistic dash design and high quality materials create a clean, modern look in the 2014 Dodge Journey’s interior. An extra-large 8.4-inch touchscreen incorporates easy to use technology, making sure passengers stay connected everywhere they go. Storage is prevalent throughout the crossover with storage bins built into the floor and an optional fold-flat front passenger seat and integrated child booster seats in the second row. The third row can be a bit tight for adults, but is perfect for any children you have to car to soccer games.

2014 Dodge Journey Safety

Government crash tests found the Journey to be worthy of four out of five stars for overall crashworthiness, while the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety rated the Journey its highest possible rating of “Good” in the moderate-overlap frontal-offset, side-impact, and roof-strength tests. Standard safety features for the 2014 Journey include antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, active front head restraints, and a plethora of airbags. The second row also features a built in boost seat for kids and rear parking sensors are optional on every Journey, while a rearview camera is available in the SXT, Limited, and R/T models.
