For 2011, the Dodge Journey receives a major overhaul with a completely redesigned and retuned suspension, a new V-6 engine and a gorgeous new interior. Journey also features the latest in vehicle connectivity and customization with the Chrysler Group’s new PowerNet electrical architecture.
From navigation to voice-command music selections to the ability to check fuel prices, the all-new Uconnect Touch media center makes life in the new 2011 Dodge Journey an excellent adventure for the driver and passengers. Four Uconnect Touch models are available, all featuring easy-to-use controls and class-leading technology.
The 2011 Journey is nimble, composed and handles well in all driving and road conditions. Engineers improved routine ride and handling by re-engineering the suspension geometry, adding new, improved premium tires and redesigning the steering for a more precise and coordinated response.
In addition, at 283 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, the 2011 Dodge Journey — equipped with the new 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine — delivers a 20 percent boost in power compared with the V-6 engine it replaces. It’s mated to a smooth-shifting six-speed transmission.
Customers step into world-class levels of craftsmanship and comfort. A beautifully crafted one-piece instrument panel sets the tone. A new, larger cluster with standard Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) is positioned in the center of the new gauges. New, integrated center stack bezels are less angular and more sculpted, and designers softened the radius to make more room for the driver’s knees.
