Following its introduction in 2009, the 2010 Dodge Journey sees no major changes, though the 2.4L 4-cylinder is only available on SE trim. Remote keyless entry is standard, as are active head restraints on first-row rear seats, and the video screen has grown from eight inches to nine. Dark slate monochrome is a new exterior color.
Two different powertrains are available on the Journey for 2010, and both offer a distinct choice of price and fuel efficiency versus power and refinement. Three different trim levels are available: SE, SXT and R/T. The base SE comes with a 173-horsepower, 2.4L 4-cylinder engine and 4-speed automatic transmission; the well-equipped SXT and sporty, top-of-the-line R/T models come with a 235-horsepower, 3.5L V6 engine and 6-speed automatic with AutoStick, which allows manual gear selection if desired. With the 4-cylinder engine, the Journey is rated at 19 mpg city, 25 mpg highway in the EPA fuel economy cycle.
All Journey models have standard front-wheel drive, but an all-wheel drive system is
available on SXT and R/T. The system sends most power to the front wheels except when power is needed at the back wheels for traction. Between 25 and 65 mph, some power is also sent to the rear wheels to enhance handling and stability.
The Journey's versatile interior is configured so as to carry up to seven people plus cargo or a combination thereof. Five-passenger seating is standard on all models, with the 3-row, 7-passenger layout available on upmarket SXT and R/T models. In the third row, which is elevated slightly above the level of the first and second row, Dodge says that the Journey allows two inches more head room than its leading competitors, and the back two rows can be folded down to allow a huge cargo floor.
The Journey's back doors open 90 degrees to allow easy entry and loading access, and the second-row seat has a child-seat-friendly feature that allows it to slide forward or rearward a total of 4.7 inches to bring children closer or to allow more legroom for adults. Access is made even easier through the Dodge's Tilt 'n Slide feature on third-row models, which allows the second row to tilt upward and slide forward.
A clever, optional Flip 'n Stow in-seat storage system under the front passenger seat includes a fold-down front passenger seat and has enough space to store a planner or other small items with the seat down in place, and two other in-floor bins located just behind the front seats can hold a dozen 12-ounce beverage cans out of sight. The bins have latched lids and removable liners. Third-row models feature yet another similar covered compartment behind the rearmost seats.
The Journey's car-like underpinnings include a 4-wheel independent suspension with a multi-link rear suspension layout for good handling and a smooth ride. Four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes with hydraulic boost are standard across the model line, along with an electronic stability control that includes a Trailer Sway Control mode to help prevent the loss of stability while towing. Front seat-mounted side airbags are standard, along with supplemental side-curtain bags that provide head protection to all three rows. The 2010 Journey has earned the highest possible rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
Noteworthy options include a UConnect hands-free calling system, a rechargeable flashlight, 3-zone climate control, a sunroof, a trailer-tow package, the Parkview backup camera, and an entertainment package that includes a navigation system, 9-inch second-row video entertainment screen, wireless headphones, 368-watt audio, and six speakers with a subwoofer.
