Need a mini-van without the van? The Dodge Journey is a family-friendly type of vehicle that we found to be very user-friendly.A midsize crossover sport-utility, the Journey offers the cargo and passenger space of an SUV but with the smoother ride and better fuel economy of a car, fitted with front-wheel drive and a carlike suspension. It's equipped with all-wheel drive for superior traction and confidence in bad weather. Best of all, it seats seven. The rear 3rd row works well for children since the leg room is reduced. Seats flip and fold to provide a wide range of versatility in hauling people, cargo, or both. The Journey offers a fold-flat front passenger seat that will allow loading items up to nine feet long.It features some unique storage solutions owners will find useful, such as, a bin under the front passenger seat, storage under the floor in the second row where you can accommodate up to twelve 12-ounce cans and ice – or whatever else you can put in there. The bins have locking lids and are removable for easy cleaning. Also, has a fairly deep center console and cup holders at every seat. To add to that it has Bluetooth UConnect technology for hands-free use (check for compatible devices) and has a luggage rack. Take it for a ride.
