Dodge Expands Four-Cylinder Availability on Journey

2012 dodge journey
Dodge recently announced that four-cylinder power is now standard on SXT versions of its midsize crossover. It also plans to offer Journey’s Flexible Seating Group Package for free during March.

Newly standard on 2012 Journey SXT is the 173-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. It was previously standard on base SE and American Value Package models. The 283-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 engine was previously standard on SXT; it's still available. The Journey SXT with the four-cylinder engine starts at $22,995, excluding a destination fee. The V-6 SXT models start at $24,495.

Additionally, Dodge is making Journey's Flexible Seating Group free this month; it's normally a $995 option. Available on all versions of the midsize crossover, the seating package consists of the second-row 60/40-split Tilt 'n Slide bench seat, three-zone heating and air conditioning, and a third-row 50/50-split folding and reclining bench seat. The deal is good through April 2.

They should have also included a sunroof option and Boston Acoustics audio system with subwoofer to the mix.
Those two items make for a dealbreaker with the Journey SXT, speaking for myself.

I had a Journey for a week and ended up liking it a lot more than I expected. It drove really well and the interior style and usability was excellent. I think it is a frequently overlooked vehicle. With that said, the four cylinder is in way over its head trying to power this large vehicle. Customers should definitely stick with the nice V6.
