For 2011 model year, the Dodge Journey receives a major overhaul with a completely redesigned and retuned suspension, a new V-6 engine and a gorgeous new interior. In addition, at 283 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, the 2011 Dodge Journey – equipped with the new 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine – delivers a 20 percent boost in power compared with the V-6 engine it replaces. It’s mated to a smooth-shifting six-speed transmission.
For the interior, the 2011 Dodge Journey comes with a beautifully crafted one-piece instrument panel sets the tone. A new, larger cluster with standard Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) is positioned in the center of the new gauges. It’s a full-color display backlit in Dodge red lights, giving it a soft glow unlike any in the segment. New, integrated center stack bezels are less angular and more sculpted, and designers softened the radius to make more room for the driver’s knees. The 2011 Dodge Journey offers six new interior color and trims to complete the makeover.
On the exterior, Dodge Journey maintains its sculpted, clean, aggressive lines and adds a new front fascia that sports the signature Dodge brand “split crosshair” honeycomb grille. The fog lamp bezels are bigger and bolder, and Dodge Journey models with the Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6 engine get a new, unique more aggressive lower fascia with the honeycomb texture in the grille (late availability). New 19-inch wheels; a new, less angular rear fascia and “ring of fire” LED taillamps wrap it up from front to back.
The 2011 Dodge Journey is built in at Chrysler Group LLC’s Toluca Assembly Plant in Toluca, Mexico.
