2011 Dodge Journey Crosses Over: A Gorgeous New Spirit and a Driver's Soul2011 Dodge Journey Crosses Over: A Gorgeous New Spirit and a Driver's SoulFor 2011, Dodge takes what was good and makes it better. The Dodge Journey receives a major overhaul wîth a completely redesigned and retuned suspension, a new V-6 engine and a gorgeous new interior. And that's not all. Journey also features the latest and greatest in vehicle connectivity and customization wîth the Chrysler Group's new PowerNet electrical architecture. Owners will feel like they have the world at their fingertips wîth the Journey's available touchscreen command center, Úconnect® Touch.
From navigation to voice-command music selections to the ability to check fuel prices, the all-new Úconnect Touch media center makes life in the new 2011 Dodge Journey an excellent adventure for the driver and passengers. Four Úconnect Touch models are available, all featuring easy-to-use controls and class-leading technology. With its touchscreen display and user-friendly, touch-key categories, connecting and controlling personal devices is simple, intuitive and customizable.
The 2011 Dodge Journey is nimble, composed and handles well in all driving and road conditions. Chrysler Group engineers improved routine ride and handling by re-engineering the suspension geometry, adding new, improved premium tires and redesigning the §teering for a more precise and coordinated response. Overall, customers will be treated to an energetic, fun-to-drive experience behind the wheel.
In addition, at 283 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, the 2011 Dodge Journey – equipped wîth the new 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine – delivers a 20 percent boost in power compared wîth the V-6 engine it replaces. It's mated to a smooth-shifting six-speed transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com)
Drivers also will be treated to a smooth, quiet ride. Engineers reduced noise, vibration and harshness by installing new, premium sound-deadening treatments and insulation throughout the vehicle.

The design team also worked to make the Journey's interior more comfortable. They moved the shifter and cup holders, making it easier for drivers and passengers to get their coffee and soda without having to lean over and under the dash. There's also a larger front storage bin wîth side nets. The new multi-functioning, three-spoke Dodge brand §teering wheel wîth integrated controls and a wider, longer, soft-touch armrest transforms the driver's seat into a cockpit-like experience. Comfortable new seats might just make drivers want to take the long way home to get a little extra seat time. The Dodge Journey offers six new interior color and trims to complete the makeover.
On the outside, 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 Journey models wîth the Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6 engine get a new, unique more aggressive lower fascia wîth 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.
Journey also is loaded wîth an abundance of safety and security features, including standard advanced multi-stage front passenger air bags, active head restraints, electronic stability control wîth all-speed traction control, electronic roll mitigation and Brake Assist, new driver-side knee blocker air bag, side-curtain air bags covering all three rows, front seat-mounted side air bags, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, LATCH child seat anchor system and Trailer-sway Control.
The Dodge Journey is built in at Chrysler Group LLC's Toluca Assembly Plant in Toluca, Mexico. It will arrive in Ú.S. dealerships in fourth quarter of 2010.Source - Dodge
