DETROIT – Dodge designers and engineers have delivered the all-new 2009 Dodge Journey. The vehicle blends the practicality of a minivan, the capability of an SUV, and the overall efficiency of a passenger car into an all-new crossover for the Dodge brand.

The Dodge Journey is built on the company’s global D-segment platform and is designed to meet the needs of customers ranging from young singles, couples, and families with small children to mature families who want the flexibility to do more in terms of seating people or storing gear.

Flexible seating and storage combinations include standard five-passenger seating with spacious cargo room and available 5+2 seating. The vehicle also features storage bins hidden in the floor and under the front passenger seat cushion.

Safety features include standard multi-stage front driver and passenger airbags, front seat-mounted side airbags, three-row side-curtain airbags, standard four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes (ABS), standard Electronic Stability Program (ESP), standard Electronic Roll Mitigation, an available back-up camera, and available all-wheel drive (AWD).

The 2009 Dodge Journey will be available in U.S. dealerships with standard five-passenger seating on the SE model and available 5+2 seating on SXT and R/T models in the first quarter of next year.
