2009 Dodge Journey SXT sport utility vehicle 5-door automatic

The 2009 Journey is a 4-door, up to 7-passenger sport-utility, available in 5 trims, ranging from the SE to the RT AWD. Upon introduction, the SE is equipped with a standard 2.4-liter, I4, 173-horsepower engine that achieves 19-mpg in the city and 25-mpg on the highway. A 4-speed automatic transmission with overdrive is standard. The RT AWD is equipped with a standard 3.5-liter, V6, 235-horsepower engine that achieves 16-mpg in the city and 23-mpg on the highway. A 6-speed automatic transmission with overdrive is standard. The 2009 Journey is all-new for 2009.

Two engines are available: either the 2.4-liter DOHC 4 cylinder on the SE models, or the 3.5-liter 24-valve V6 on the SXT and R/T models. All-wheel drive is available on the SXT and R/T models, as is a six-speed automatic transmission with auto-stick. Shoppers also have a choice of 16-, 17-, or 18-inch aluminum wheels, depending on the model.

Highs: Quietness, power train, interior flexibility and storage, access, optional third-row seat, value.
Lows: Agility, ride, fuel economy, rear visibility.

Dodge's first car-based SUV uses the Chrysler Sebring/Dodge Avenger platform. A compact vehicle offers a third-row seat. Standard seating is for five passengers and the third row increases seating to seven. The noisy 2.4-liter engine is standard but the punchier and refined 3.5-liter V6 engine is fairly quiet and responsive. Our tested V6 returned just 16 mpg overall, however. The ride is a bit unsettled and handling lacks agility, but it is ultimately secure. Storage bins under the front-passenger seat cushion and in the second row floor are handy. Also available are integrated child booster seats.

According to KBB Editors'

Based on the same D-segment platform as the Avenger, the 2009 Dodge Journey is a new crossover utility vehicle that fits in between the compact Caliber and family-hauling Grand Caravan. The Journey provides the utility of an SUV, the passenger capacity of a minivan, the driving characteristics of a car and has a multitude of storage bins and spaces. Making its debut into the crossover marketplace, the Journey compares favorably with the Chevy Equinox, Ford Escape, Hyundai Santa Fe and Toyota RAV4, and it's especially ideal for those with families, or those looking to start new families, as it offers different trim levels with a choice of seating configurations and amenities that should suit a variety of needs and budgets.
