The Chrysler has unveiled its facelifted 2011 Dodge Journey. The updated Journey gets a some facelift with a redesigned and retuned suspension, a new V6 engine, a all-new interior and some exterior tweaks.
The Journey got newly crafted interior with higher-quality materials which puts the outgoing model’s cabin to shame, including the sporty looking instrument panel with a standard electronic vehicle information center featuring a full-color display backlit.
The revised Journey is completed with a new multi-functioning three-spoke steering wheel, larger front storage bin with side nets, newly designed seats and controls, as well as an available Uconnect Touch media center with a touch-screen display.
On the body, the cosmetic changes are limited to the new front fascia sporting the brand’s signature “split crosshair” honeycomb grille, restyled fog lamp bezels, available 19-inch wheels, a less angular rear fascia and LED tail-lamps.
Underneath the hood, the Journey receives the Chrysler Group’s new 3.6-liter V6 Pentastar engine delivering 283 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, matched to a six-speed automatic transmission.
The facelifted Dodge Journey is scheduled to arrive in U.S. dealerships in the fourth quarter of 2010.
