Dodge has upgraded its large seven-seater Journey MPV with extra equipment for 2010.
The entry-level SE model now includes cruise control, integrated child booster seats for the second row seating, and odour and stain resistant cloth upholstery.
This is in addition to a standard equipment list that already includes electronic stability control with anti-rollover electronics, side airbags that cover all three rows, tyre pressure monitors+, power-folding and heated mirrors, six-CD changer, three-zone climate control, flexible seating and underfloor storage bins.
The SXT model, which already offered alloy wheels, front foglights and powered drivers’ seat, now also includes the integrated booster seats, roof rails, leather for the steering wheel and gearknob, plus steering-wheel-mounted audio controls.
Range-topping R/T features full leather and 19-inch alloys in addition to the 2010 SXT specification, and now also adds Bluetooth and iPod connection.
From under £17,000
There’s a choice of 2.0-litre turbodiesel or 2.4-litre petrol engines, with manual or dual clutch DSG-style automatic transmission, and prices for the 2010 Dodge Journey range begin at £16,990.
The Journey is far from being the greatest car in the world, but it is big – and offers reasonable value.
