2019 Dodge Journey OVERVIEW

The Dodge Journey has been around since 2009 and has undergone modest changes since. Its older design seems quite dated in a segment dominated by modern vehicles. Despite its age, the 2019 Dodge Journey continues to attract people shopping for a seven-passenger crossover thanks to its low cost.

What's New for 2019

For 2019, the Dodge Journey consolidates trim levels from five to just three. New standard equipment, updated packages, and one new exterior color choice round out the changes.

Choosing Your Dodge Journey

The Journey comes with four- and six-cylinder engine choices. Front-wheel drive is standard, though all-wheel drive is available across the lineup. However, buyers have to upgrade to the V6 to access AWD.

The base 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine is standard in the SE and Crossroad trims. It delivers 173 horsepower and 166 pound-feet of torque and works with a four-speed automatic transmission. The setup is good for an EPA-estimated 19 miles per gallon city, 25 mpg highway, and 21 combined.

Standard on the GT trim and available for $1,700 on the other two is a 3.6-liter V6 engine with 283 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. This engine works with a six-speed automatic transmission, and achieves 17/25/19 mpg (city/highway/combined) with FWD or 16/24/19 mpg with AWD.

There are three trims available:


The Dodge Journey SE starts at $25,140 (all prices include the $1,495 destination fee). Add $1,700 for the V6 engine or $4,400 for the V6 with all-wheel drive. Standard features include automatic headlights, fog lights, power-heated and fold-away side mirrors, 17-inch steel wheels, black roof rails, and LED taillights. Inside, the Journey SE comes with cloth seats, split-folding second- and third-row seats, a tilt-and-telescoping steering column, and air conditioning. This model also has a four-speaker audio system, a 4.3-inch touchscreen, an audio jack, and one USB port.

Buyers also have a choice of several packages. The Connectivity Group ($795) brings in Uconnect voice command with Bluetooth, while the Uconnect 8.4 Touch Screen Radio Group ($895) brings an 8.4-inch touchscreen, FCA's Uconnect 3 infotainment system, three-zone climate control, an overhead console, a humidity sensor, front and rear aimable LED lights, a rear park assist system, a rearview day/night mirror, sun visors with illuminated vanity mirrors, and one year of satellite radio.

The Premium Group ($1,095) bundles a security system, power front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, an interior observation mirror, and premium cloth seats. The Blacktop Package ($645) adds 17-inch aluminum wheels, a touring suspension, and black exterior touches, while the Chrome Accent Package by Mopar ($685) adds chrome exterior touches. Finally, the Trailer Tow Group ($625) brings a class II receiver hitch and a trailer tow wiring harness.


Priced from $29,590, the middle trim builds on the standard equipment of the SE and adds roof side rails, leather-trimmed seats, and a 10-way power driver’s seat. Add $1,700 for the V6 engine or $3,500 for the V6 with all-wheel drive. This model also adds a touring suspension, three-zone climate control, and rear air conditioning with a heater.

The Chrome Accent Package by Mopar returns unchanged, but the Crossroad is available with six new packages. The Premium Sound Group ($395) adds a universal garage door opener and a six-speaker Alpine audio system, while the Driver Convenience Group ($795) bundles a universal garage door opener and a rear park assist system.

The Popular Equipment Group ($1,400) equips the Journey with heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, remote start, a security system, and a universal garage door opener. Meanwhile, the Family Entertainment Group ($1,445) adds a 9-inch screen that flips down for the backseat occupants.

The Navigation Group ($1,495) bundles a Garmin navigation system, rear park assist system, five years of Sirius real-time traffic information, and the 8.4-inch touchscreen with Uconnect 3. Finally, the Nav & Sun Group ($2,100) adds the equipment from the Navigation Group and a power sunroof.


The top-of-the-line GT is priced from $34,890. It comes with 19-inch carbon-aluminum wheels, premium door trim, a 115-volt outlet, a leather-wrapped and heated steering wheel, heated front seats, a six-speaker audio system, and UConnect 3 with an 8.4-inch touchscreen, a CD player, and satellite radio.

The available packages include several from previous trims: the Trailer Tow Group ($625), Blacktop Package ($525), Chrome Appearance Group by Mopar ($685), Driver Convenience Group ($845), Family Entertainment Group ($1,345), Navigation Group ($1,495), and Nav & Sun Group ($2,100).

CarsDirect Tip

Deep discounting accompanies the 2019 Dodge Journey starting with the Crossroad trim. This middle trim offers the best value, but we’d still add the V6 engine and choose the Nav & Sun Group to complete our purchase.
