TRACTION TIMES FOUR

The available All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) system helps to provide added traction on snow, ice and other low-traction surfaces by transferring power from wheels without traction to wheels with traction. It works instantly and on demand, driving only the front wheels until power to the rear wheels is needed.

  • INDEPENDENT SUSPENSION

    -

    Dodge Journey features a fully independent suspension. In the front, MacPherson struts are tuned to provide an optimum balance of ride, handling and noise isolation. And in the rear, the multilink suspension allows individual movement of the rear wheels over different road surfaces. Front and rear suspension crossmembers are isolated to the body to help create a quiet ride with less road noise, vibration and harshness. Altogether, you're getting a responsive, smooth and quiet ride.

  • TOURING SUSPENSION

    +

    The available touring-tuned suspension offers a slightly firmer ride than the standard suspension and enhances responsiveness for a sportier driving experience.

  • HIGH-PERFORMANCE SUSPENSION

    +

    For drivers who enjoy the curves, Journey R/T offers a high-performance suspension for a firmer ride. It might pack like a minivan, but it corners like a sedan.

The system then engages the Electronic Stability Control+, strategically applies brake pressure and may adjust engine throttle to help reduce the sway and maintain stability.
