2018 Dodge Journey Crossroad Specs – With a steady stream of new or totally reexamined hybrids filling the market all the time, it’s difficult to envision one that is currently entering its ninth model year with no critical changes. Based on the bones of the Dodge Avenger fair size vehicle and created in the melting away days of DaimlerChrysler, the Dodge Journey survived the cuts amid the Cerberus time before Chrysler‘s 2009 chapter 11.
This year, 2018 Dodge Journey extends unaltered from 2018 in what’s probably going to be its last year before being supplanted by another hybrid. The Journey is accessible in four trim levels—SE, SXT, Crossroad, and GT. Most models come standard with a 2.4-liter inline-4, while a 3.6-liter V-6 is discretionary (and required on the off chance that you need all-wheel drive).

Adversaries, including some inside Dodge parent FCA’s lineup, now havetwice the same number of apparatuses.
2018 Dodge Journey Crossroad – Engine, Performance
The Dodge Journey front and all-wheel-drive models proceed unaltered for 2018. The Canadian Value Package (CVP) FWD, SE Plus FWD and SXT FWD are fueled by a standard 2.4-liter DOHC four-barrel motor, which produces 173 pull and 166 pound-feet of torque and is connected to a four-speed programmed transmission.

Flexibility incorporates second-push in-floor stockpiling and front-traveler in-situate capacity.
A grim 2.4-liter inline-4 evaluated at 173 strength and 166 pound-feet of torque comes standard on everything except the Journey GT when front-wheel drive is chosen. It transports control forward by means of a 4-speed programmed, a relic of an alternate period. Not exclusively is the motor grumbly, it’s basically insufficient to rouse this 4,000-pound hybrid with any kind of energy. Unladen, the 2.4-liter is satisfactory, yet with a couple of travelers on board, things end up plainly toiled.
Better is the 3.6-liter V-6 that ups things to 283 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. It’s the must-have motor with all-wheel drive or with either form of the Journey GT. A 6-speed programmed is the main decision, and keeping in mind that it’s surely superior to anything the 4-speed matched to the 2.4-liter motor, this transmission is not really best in class. The V-6 gives solid increasing speed, however the programmed can at times shoot befuddled moves and feels somewhat lost at low speeds.
